The Time Crisis video game franchise is a series of rail shooter games developed and published by Namco, now known as Bandai Namco Entertainment. The series was first released in arcades in 1995 and has since been ported to various home consoles.
In Time Crisis, players take on the role of agents from the V.S.S.E. (Vital Situation, Swift Elimination) agency who are tasked with saving the world from various threats. The gameplay involves using a light gun controller to shoot enemies on screen while taking cover behind objects to avoid enemy fire.
The series is known for its unique cover system, which allows players to duck behind objects and pop out to fire at enemies. Time Crisis also introduced the concept of a pedal controller, which allows players to take cover and reload their weapons by stepping on the pedal.
Over the years, the franchise has received various sequels, including Time Crisis II, III, 4, and 5. The series has also been adapted for home consoles, with several releases on the PlayStation and Xbox platforms.
In addition to its gameplay mechanics, the Time Crisis series is also known for its cinematic presentation and over-the-top action sequences, which often involve players taking down massive bosses and thwarting elaborate plots to take over the world.
