This is what Black 2 would have looked like

Criterion has released two images of unreleased shooter Black 2.

The shots, released by the studio's creative director Alex Ward, were taken from Criterion's previously unseen "TargetX" video - presumably created to aid the cancelled game's development process. (Black 2 , Criterion Games, PS2, PS3, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Agreed, I know I've played it many of times when I still had the ps3's older brother, I honestly thought the game looked ps3 material at times. I'd drop so $$$ on that...

I still throw Black in for a great nostalgia ride.... I loved Timesplitters 2, the split screen multi was great fun, Future Perfect no slouch either, thats why I was pretty bummed Haze never panned out, I figured ex-Free Radical guys , going to be good.... oh well...here's to hoping a new TimeSplitters will come next gen....

if they are dead set on "not making another BLACK video game" at least re release it in HD on PStore and XboxLive. for 10 or 15 i dont care ill still get it! haha also still waiting on a PS2 classic for Timsplitters collection.

"Responding to fan questions, Ward said that he believed the game "probably wouldn't hold up" to today's standards. "Times have sure changed," he said."

Their lack of vision saddens me.
csreynolds  +   450d ago
Their lack of vision, or the fact we live in a world where Call of Duty is hailed as the pinnacle of first-person shooting?

I can't wait for Battlefield 4 to dethrone CoD next gen.

Black was one of those special games that stood out from the rest. It was truly a generation ahead for it's time.

In retrospect the game was pretty overrated, It had allot of flaws outside of the amazing visuals, for example sparse checkpoints , only saving between levels, poor AI, repetitive gameplay, 5 hour campaign and the biggest flaw no multiplayer of any sort. Why that was excluded is beyond me it would have made an otherwise decent game into an amazing game.

However, considering what they managed to pull off on the PS2, a refined sequel on the more powerful 360/PS3 would have been god send, shame they never followed suite.

No Jump button. Done right there. Having to walk around everything was so stupid.

Honestly I couldnt finish that game when I first rented it. I playyed it and I didnt finish it and stopped bothering with it...

Black was one of those games that I would just play and play and play, not to accomplish anything, but to just get my FPS on. It was and will always be one of my favorite games. I'm in for a benji if it goes to crowd funding for sure!

Longest cliffhanger ever, because they sure wanted a sequel the way the 1st one ended.

I thought you were going to say you got stuck at the brutal final room.
brewskiebob  +   449d ago
Lol yea i did for about 3 hours....it was a real bitch
Tzunoy  +   450d ago
I still wait for the damn thing to happen. god damn. all those years...

Chris Tilton and Michael Giacchino better be at the helm for the soundtrack if this happens to bear fruit in the future....
