TimeSplitters: Future Perfect is a first-person shooter which takes place in many locations throughout time from the 20th to 25th century. It is the third installment in the popular franchise developed by Free Radical Design. The series' trademark game modes, vast wealth of characters and inventive weapons are all back for a third outing. Future Perfect boasts a story mode spanning 13 levels, a challenge mode and arcade mode, a roster of 150 characters and a whole host of devastating weapons.
Sergeant Cortez is back. Picking up immediately after the events of TimeSplitters 2, Cortez crashes his ship back down on to earth, where he is able to return the Time Crystals to a character referred to as "The General". Now the Time Crystals are in human possession, it's time for them to mount an offensive. By traveling through time, Cortez and his comrades plan on finding the source of the TimeSplitter scourge and stopping their plans before they can ever begin. Cortez finds that a Dr. Jacob Crow had created the TimeSplitters and sets out on a mission to destroy him and his plans.
The games story takes you through 13 levels and 6 different time zones. There are spoilers in this section.
Time to Split, 2401
You start the game hanging upside down from your crashed ride. A human guard helps you to your feet and pleads that you get moving fast. Apparently, the Splitters have been stirred up by your return and you must fight through them as well as a parade of mysterious ninja-esque foes of unknown origin on the way to the base. The content of the mission is mostly designed to warm you up to the controls of the game. Once you get inside, warm greetings are exchanged between Cortez, Anya, and The General but its not long before you are geared up, given an arm-mounted time device / PDA and sent back in time to regain control of the time crystals. Time to split.
Scotland the Brave, 1924
Cortez appears in the air a few feet from a boat near an island found to have massive time fluctuations and, as such, is rumored to have a large deposit of time crystals somewhere on it. Cortez boards the boat, commandeered by Captain Ash, and accidentally sets the scene ablaze with cannons when he fires the Captain's flare gun at a sniper. The flare was a signal for the nearby naval fleet to begin bombardment. Captain Ash offers aid to Cortez in exchange for his help in finding the Jungle Queen, who was imprisoned on the island. This level features the first wormhole where Cortez helps himself out by going back in time a few minutes, giving himself the key to a locked door. After singing the island fortress and finding his way down to the cellar, Cortez encounters Jacob Crow, the game's primary antagonist. Before Cortez can so much as speak to Crow, he hastily grabs a bunch of items from a nearby desk and teleports away. A postcard with Crow's picture gives Cortez coordinates for his next jump.
The Russian Connection, 1969
This level begins at night on the outskirts of a secret Russian military base. Cortez runs into Harry Tipper, an international man of mystery (whose mannerisms and voice are nothing like the TimeSplitters 2 character of the same name). Harry's nemesis, Khallos, has kidnapped his girlfriend Kitten Celeste as well as jacked a nuclear missile from the French. It's up to him to get there in the nick of time and save the world. Khallos has struck a deal with Crow, giving Crow a small army in exchange for the prospect of eternal life. Using stealth rather than brute force and classic spy techniques rather than common sense, Cortez and Tipper infiltrate the base, disguise themselves as guards, and narrowly miss both Khallos and Crow who board a train carrying the nuke.
The Khallos Express, 1969
Kitten Celeste is tied on the railroad tracks, a nuclear warhead is about blast off, and Crow is getting away. Time is of the essence as Cortez weaves his way through the cars of a speeding train. Another wormhole opens up on the train to allow Cortez to take out a helicopter; his future self hits the copter with missiles and his former self keeps guards off his back. The level introduces a puzzle game very similar to Pipe Dream to disarm the nuke. Cortez dispatches Khallos on top of the train and races to the engineer's car to put the brakes down. Celeste is left uninjured and the world is saved. During the train mission, Anya does some research into Jacob Crow's whereabouts and traces him to a haunted mansion in the 90's. Time to split.
Mansion Of Madness, 1994
The scene opens with Jo-Beth Casey, resident photographer/ slut (according to her T-shirt) about to enter the mysterious house on the block. She is startled by Cortez, who jumps in behind her. They decide to go inside the mansion through the front door, a decision that traps them inside only moments later as lightning strikes a tree which blocks the way back out. This level is loaded with horror and paranormal themes from ghosts to possessed corpses to maniacal scientists and everything in-between. The double-barrel shotgun is the prominent weapon throughout this mission, effective for blasting off zombie heads. Jo-Beth and Cortez make their way through all of the nightmarish obstacles until they reach the basement, where the first of the two mansion mission ends.
What Lies Below, 1994
After jumping down a hole of questionable grounding (Jo-Beth Casey looks for another way around), Cortez proceeds through a catacombs, fighting enemies similar to those found topside. A notable addition to the enemy list is the mimic, a Jo-Beth lookalike that rushes you in melee combat. Cortez finds the actual Jo-Beth suspended from the ceiling by her leg being batted by zombies. She gets down and they proceed together into a secret underground laboratory where scientists have been busy attempting to unlock immortality and instead have been making horribly deformed creatures. The two actually run into Crow, but Cortez falls down a trap door into a mine cart. After a short rail shooter sequence, Cortez meets his future self again, this time tasked with traversing a cavern with his former self shooting zombies and his future self shooting ghosts with a newly (and rather inexplicably) allocated Ghost Gun. They exchange pleasantries, then go their different ways. Jo-Beth is found suspended upside down again, this time ready to be eaten by a giant skeletal dinosaur creature. Dispatched. Cortez and Jo-Beth race to Crow's office, but he's already left once again. Thankfully, his computer is loaded with information about his intentions. The temporary duo bust out of the mansion in time to watch an older version of Crow give his younger self a time device. The chase begins again.
Breaking and Entering, 2052
The first taste of an urban environment takes place on the rooftop of the U-Genix Corporation headquarters, a company found to be headed by a one Jacob Crow. While scoping out the roof, Cortez spots Amy Chen, a current-time spy looking into Crow's affairs as well. Cortez follows her in. The first half of the level is predominantly oriented around sneaking past guards and subverting security systems, mostly through the use of the Mag Charger--a sniper rifle that both allows the player to see electrical circuits and shut them down in a single shot. The stealthier component of the mission ends when Cortez meets up with Chen. They battle together to Crow's main office, where Chen downloads a huge number of records from the U-Genix database, including information about yet another secret underground base. The two fight their way to the elevator, and the first of the two U-Genix missions ends.
You Genius, U-Genix, 2052
Once both Cortez and Chen make it to the basement (they take separate trips), they begin to make their way through the security overladen underground complex. This sequence has an odd flavor because it encourages stealthy maneuvers but the game doesn't really punish the player for just shooting everybody either; to each his own. Instead of breeding zombies like the Brotherhood of Ultra-Science did in Mansion of Madness, U-Genix creates extremely hostile mutants that are resilient to bullet fire but will explode if hit with a medicine-filled dart. Yet another wormhole opens up to let Cortez through an otherwise uncrackable security system. This time, four Cortezes team up to battle robots and solve puzzles in tandem. Once this mayhem ends, Cortez catches up with Crow yet again but this Crow doesn't actually know who Cortez is. Unfortunately, Cortez blows it by explaining Crow's own time scheme to him. Suddenly, the younger Crow from Mansion of Madness shows up and gives the older Crow the time device. He promptly makes his escape.
Machine Wars, 2243
Zooming forward to the Robot Wars, Cortez's expedition leads him to another of Crow's installations, this time the one responsible for cranking out the robust R-100 robot series. After forcibly befriending one such robot by "haywiring" it, Cortez begins pushing back the other robots with a couple of human resistance fighters. They command a tank, get ID implants to circumvent security checkpoints and proceed to siege the front gates of Crow's complex. Cortez teams up with himself to commandeer both the main gun and antiaircraft cannon of a tank during the mission and also pilots a giant destroyer mech.
Something to Crow About, 2243
Cortez and R-110 (his robot friend) take an elevator down to the ground floor of the manufacturing complex. Very soon after, Cortez uploads some schematics for the complex from a computer and Anya realizes that Crow is responsible for the creation of the TimeSplitters. If this facility were destroyed, the TimeSplitter army should never come into existence. Subsequently, the shutdown of the TimeSplitter breeding chamber becomes the top priority of the mission. Much robot combat ensues. After taking down the power grid, Cortez then hunts down Crow in his private quarters, only to find that he has been horribly mutated and grafted to a complex mobile apparatus. Cortez fights Crow seemingly to the death, but Crow teleports back to the island fortress from the first mission. Chase is given with the hope of ending this roundabout once and for all.
You Take The High Road, 1924
Cortez takes a trip back to 1924, but this time he realizes why he didn't find the crystals. Crow was mining the crystals well underneath the island, using a large submarine to reach the mine. For what is the last time, I swear, Cortez makes his way underground in search of this mine. He finds much more than he bargained for, discovering a subterranean city brimming with the workers conscripted from Khallos's army. He makes his way through this very vertically integrated society until he stumbles upon a meeting of Time Assassins being briefed for a mission against Cortez himself. Cortez realizes that the enemies who attacked him when he first crashed near the base were these assassins. He disguises himself as one of them and follows them through a wormhole to 2401, hoping to foil their plot.
The Hooded Man, 2401
To avoid a time paradox, Cortez fends off the Time Assassins attacking his former self in the canyon pass of the very first level. In the process, he destroys an attacking mothership and initiates several events that the game made you believe you were responsible for in the first level. After he finishes his task, he travels back to the mine in 1924.
Future Perfect, 1924
The final mission has two components and is quite short; Cortez puts a raw hunk of crystal into Crow's time machine to destroy it, and Cortez finally kills Crow. Cortez initially finds Crow to be too difficult an adversary to fight alone so he enlists the help of none other than himself. With the combined firepower of two Cortez's, Crow is defeated and his paradoxical reign of tyranny ends. The collapse of the time machine complete obliterates the island where the time crystals lay, burying it forever. When Cortez makes it back to his present day. The world immediately changes from a barren wasteland torn by conflict into a beautiful haven at last. The Time Wars are over. It would be pretty hard for them to do a sequel.
Much like TimeSplitters 2, Future Perfect features an Arcade Mode that has both a custom game creator and the Arcade League, which is comprised of sets of challenges created by Free Radical. Completing these challenges with a good ranking, usually silver of gold, will unlock rewards for the player. The challenges are:
- Amateur League - One Gun Fun
- On The Take
- Honorary League - Dead Weight
- Fever Pitch
- Mode Madness
- Elite League - Smash 'N Grab
- Group Therapy
- Retro Chique
Each of these groups features a number of challenges, each themed around the name. Each subsequent league is harder than the last, and will usually have a better reward to compensate.
The Custom Arcade mode allows players to set up their own crazy game modes for multiplayer matches. The matches can be played Split Screen with or without bots and online (though the online mode is more limited). Players can customize numerous options, including general difficulty, bot characters and their difficulty, the weapons present on the map and their hierarchy along with numerous options for scoring matches. The amount of options the player is able to change, along with the use of the map maker and custom maps, makes TimeSplitters: Future Perfect a very customizable FPS, particular for the consoles.
Multiplayer maps included in the game are:
- Vietnam - A large, natural, open area set in the sunset of Vietnam. Features as one of the assault levels.
- Hotel - A mostly indoors level, the Hotel has been abandoned by all but the undead it seems.

- Chinese - The original classic map, now with an extra tunnel.
- Mexican Mission - Returning from TS2 with some slight improvements, this fan favorite map is still as frantic as ever.
- Training Ground - This classic Assault/Capture the Bag map returns, minus turrets.
Future Perfect also features a challenge mode. Similar in structure to the Arcade League challenges, challenge mode takes the player out of the standard multiplayer scenario and in to some custom created challenges. The challenges range from driving a remote control cat around levels to facing wave after wave of zombies. The challenges, and a brief description for each, are as follows:
- Behead The Undead - Shoot Zombies and score points. Face waves after wave, scoring points every time you decapitate or detach a limb.
- Cut-Out Shoot-Out - Traverse the levels and shoot the targets as the present themselves. Watch out for friendlies.
- Cat Driving - Drive Khallos' cat Strudel around numerous levels, trying to beat a set time.
- Super Smashing Great - Similar to the TS2 glass smash challenges, this time you get to smash anything from plates to bottles.

- Monkeying Around - Another round of challenges centered around our simian friends.
- Miscellaneous Challenges - A random selection of challenges, both varied and insane.

TimeSplitters: Future Perfect sets a new bar for the amount of characters included in the series so far, with 150 characters in the game.
