"Customisable multi-player mode, scenarios including deathmatch, capture-the-bag, escort, last stand, etc."
What the hell is escort?

Get your mind out of the gutter!

In the original TS game, there were challenges where you had to protect someone as they moved from one end of a level to another. For example, you had to protect an unarmed Duckman Drake from an assortment of chefs and hunters who tried to kill both him and you. All the "escortee" did was walk, and occasionally cower, you had to do all of the shooting.

The TS2 example would be escorting Marco the Snitch to his hideout in Chicago.

PS - The "Get your mind out of the gutter line" reflects the fact that "escort" is another word for prostitute. You might not have caught that in Finland, but it was mostly a joke for the others who might have pictured a level most out of character with the rest of the game...perhaps featuring a maiden or two and ... I'd better stop there.

D'oh! I know what the word means but it sounds like ts2 would have a game mode called escort.

Actually Hacker in Perfect Dark is pretty much that, when you put the teams on. I'd like to see something like Hacker in TS3 or Free Radical's next FPS.

Sounds kinda like the mode in CS that no one really liked.
I didn't mind it as the escorted guy actually can do something.

But this mode doesn't really sound very interesting.
I see why it was cut.

The escort is usually a bot (unlike in hacker where anyone can "hack"). It's a bit like CTF, but with a bot designated as the flag carrier. Personally, I think "king of the hill" is a more essential game mode.
