In TimeSplitters: Future Perfect, humanity is on the brink of destruction by the evil TimeSplitters. With the help of some familiar faces, Cortez--the tough hero from previous installments--must chase a mystery foe across different time periods to trace the origins of the TimeSplitters. As Cortez, you'll have access to weapons, gadgets, characters, and environments that are unique to each time period. You can also correct the mistakes made in the past or team up with past and future versions of yourself in battles.

Test Entries
Revision OS Version CPU GPU Result Tester
r7480 Ubuntu 10.04 Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 ATI Radeon HD 4850 Playable, small graphic corruptions, game slow in spite of good framerate, stuttering. Dark Fread
3.0 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-3720QM @ 2.6GHz NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M Game consistently stutters. The game is "playable", but too inconsistent for smooth gameplay. Pyro Paper Planes
3.5-367 Windows 8 Intel Core i7-980 @ 3.33GHz AMD Radeon 6950 Constant stutter on both and versions of Dolphin, tested with various settings to try and get it right but no anvil, no visual corruption in OpenGL, dx9 or dx11, obvious slowdown if you add enhancements, other then stutter it is playable up to 2x resolution on my system. TheJman494
4.0-4918 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-960 @ 3.2GHz AMD Radeon HD 6850 Runs exceptionally well. Most of the old slow downs are completely gone. Only a few hiccups once in awhile and I'm not certain if it's my CPU getting hot or just some minor tweaks needed to be done. Tested with OpenGL, 1.5x Native Resolution, 2x Anti-Aliasing and 4x Anistropic. Gets the full framerate during multiplayer sessions as well with multiple players. Desmond27
4.0-4922 Windows 8.1 Intel Core i3-550 @ 3.2GHz AMD Radeon 5850 Very playable in this revision. MMU fixes seem to have solved the slow framerate issue. However, the game runs at 120FPS if the frame limiter is set to 60 or Auto, setting this to 30FPS seems to fix it. The Audio Backend should be set to OpenAL to avoid an issue where the pitch is modified to compensate for the lower framerate when using XAudio2. Playtested up to U-Genix, occasional errors seem to happen mid game but they aren't game breaking, holding the Enter key and a direction on the control pad seems to make this go away after 10 seconds or so and it hasn't yet broken the game, at worst there's been some crazy vertex transformations for a frame but that's it. Enjoy this awesome game in HD, it's eye-poppingly gorgeous! CptSpavers
4.0-4924 Windows 8.1 Intel Core i5-3570K @ 4.2GHz AMD Radeon R9 290 Crossfire Near perfect emulation. Runs great, looks great, totally stable with no notable glitches, issues or slowdown. Spent a good four hours playing 4-Player arcade and the only bug we noticed was a bit of flickering in parts of the Mars Prison map. That aside, emulation was perfect and consistently operated at full speed. Xevon
5.0 Windows 10 Intel Core i7-4790K @ 3.5GHz) AMD R9 FURY X The game runs perfectly, apart from from a tiny bit of stuttering which is when things are loading but for me this is somewhat expected (The game is loaded from a USB 2 flash drive). Tested with Direct3D 11, 3x Native, Anti-Aliasing 8x MSAA, Anisotropic Filtering 4x. With the enhancements, the game looks amazing. 2haloes
