Time Crisis is a first-person shooter in which gamers take on the role of Richard Miller, a special agent assigned to rescue the president's daughter. She is being held hostage by the evil Sherudo Garo and his gang. Players may Select from either "Story" mode or "Timed" mode. "Story" mode takes players through each of the four stages in sequence, with an exclusive PlayStation-only level sending Miller off to a mysterious hotel. In "Timed" mode, players must make their way through the stage of their choice, and they must do so as quickly as possible. Time Crisis features hidden power-ups which can be attained by shooting inanimate objects or by killing a specific number of enemies.
