Time Crisis is a light gun shooter arcade game released in 1995. The PlayStation port was bundled with the Guncon light gun controller, which was released alongside it, and includes an exclusive mission that would lead to a console exclusive installment.

Unused Voice Lines

Kantaris has some voice clips that go unused in the final game.

Regional Differences

The music that plays over the ending cut-scenes in the special mode was changed for the PAL version, most likely due the slower framerate. It is worth noting that unlike the rest of the music in the special mode, the ending cut-scene and loading screen music was not composed by the sound team, but rather made up of samples sourced from the "Symphonic Adventures" sample library made by Sound Ideas. The main difference between the NTSC and PAL versions is the added length and re-arrangement of samples used.

Track NTSC PAL Differences
Heliport - Good Ending
Different intro
Lounge - Good Ending
Added intro and no gaps between samples in the PAL version
Parking Lot - Good Ending

Heliport - Bad Ending

Lounge - Bad Ending
Least different of them all, only slightly longer
Parking Lot - Bad Ending

Debug Menu

Time Crisis Debug Menu.png

Use the following GameShark code, then press L2 on Controller 2 (using a regular controller) at the title screen to display a debug menu. All of the debug menu is controlled by Controller 2. Do note that while the code works in the American release, the menu does not fully display there. The functions don't seem to be present in the European release.
