New Feature Posted: Bargain Basement - August 2006

Brad Gallaway brings us another Bargain Basement, enlisting the help of Daniel Weissenberger. This edition covers Electronic Arts' TimeSplitters: Future Perfect, Capcom's Devil Kings and LucasArts' Wrath Unleashed.

"TimeSplitters and TimeSplitters 2 were interesting, lopsided games combining first-person shooter play and time travel. They gathered a lot of attention, but nonexistent plots and lackluster singleplayer modes kept them out of the big leaguesóboth, a clear waste of strong potential. Developers Free Radical must have felt the same way because their third attempt at the concept, TimeSplitters: Future Perfect, comes off like a "do-over" that summarizes the first two efforts and builds on top of them, combining the whole mess into something that finally feels like a complete game."

i don't know the exact translation, but it equates to "my house is your house" in spanish, sort of a phrase communicationg welcome.

Brad, that pretty much is the exact translation. And it is a pretty funny line.

Re: New Feature Posted: Bargain Basement - August 2006

I just wanted to say that Bargain Basement is probably my favorite feature on this site. I love finding old games that I may not have even thought about before. If I was able to vote for something I wanted to see on gamecritics.com more often, Bargain Basement would definitely be it. Keep up the good work.

Re: New Feature Posted: Bargain Basement - August 2006

Thanks, FoD....

comments and praise are always appreciated.

= )

i've had a lot more free time lately, so you can expect to see at least one more BB in the near future, and i have one more in the works.

also, since game prices for PS2 and XB are dropping so fast, i'm sure we'll have plenty of stuff to cover for a while.
