Skipping over the laughable story---after all, you will!---Time Crisis 2 stays true to the crouch-and-reload formula of the arcade original. Working with a partner, you'll chase bosses through the arcade version's three levels, mowing down hordes of cannon fodder, occasionally ducking under obstacles, and even snagging a machine gun or two.

Since you'll blast through that pretty quickly, Namco beefed up TC2 with lots of cool extras. On the one-player side, you'll find a shooting range, two old arcade games (Quick and Crash, a quick-draw and accuracy contest, and Shoot Away 2's skeet shooting), and the option to plug in two lightguns for two-fisted John Woo mayhem.

The best part, though, is the two-player side. If you play split-screen, the game goes widescreen so that each player has a fully proportioned but pretty tiny screen, or you can connect two PS2s and two TVs for some awesome i.Link action.

TC2 carries over beautifully onto the PS2, delivering a thrilling test of reflexes and aim. Granted, it's a very short game that certainly won't mesmerize you for weeks, but the value of its multiplayer side as a killer party game makes it a very worthy addition to your PS2 library.
