The first and still the best time manipulating FPS game in the gaming history. Still looks great, feels great, smells great. If you have a chance to get your hands on it, don't hesitate. The story shows a really dark future and you have the chance to stop it from happening. Do it!

Nice old school shooter. Not a twitch shooter, but it has the charm of one.
Its pretty bloody and the time shifting is implemented pretty well.
Graphically it still holds up today. It runs very well in 1080p and so far Im enjoying it.

I bought this game when it came out a long time ago. I had to buy it on steam cause my CD is messed up. Anyway, I never seen a game this cool ever since. Amazing graphics, cool story and the engine is second to none. I remember this game came out around the time crysis came out and I was more impressed with timeshifts graphics than crysis. Still one of my favorite single player games I ever played.

It's a pretty solid FPS with some unique time shifting mechanics. Basically you have the ability to... as the name implies shift time. You can slow it down, stop it or reverse it, which could make for some interesting combat situations, but unfortunately that's not the case here, because mostly you'll just find yourself slowing down time in order to mow down groups of enemies with some ridiculously OP weapon, which is completely fine and I found enjoyable since you get to feel like greek god. There's a just a certain type of satisfaction to be had when your targets freak out and yell "THATS IMPOSSIBLE!" before getting blown apart into pieces by a timed explosive arrow. Where this game does put the full extent of your time shifting abilities to use is puzzle solving, I found the puzzles to be a little simple and repetitive but still interesting and clever, sometimes I'd stop to think how cool it was what I just did.

The story was mildly interesting, without spoiling too much you basically get sent back in time to take care of a renegade scientist who went back in time to take over the world, but due to how time travel works your time line doesn't get affected and you're actually just saving an alternate timeline... or something, I don't know, probably not but that's what I got from it. Time travel is complicated as ♥♥♥♥ so don't expect me to explain it ok? Anyway where this game TRULY shines is in it's art & graphics direction, it's got a really awesome mix between cyber and steampunk going on set in a nazi germany type aesthetic, it made me want to keep playing to see more of this world.

So in conclusion I wouldn't call this game underrated as steam tags suggest, its rather a more obscure title set in a cool ♥♥♥ world where you get to feel like a god. Definitely worth a playthrough if you enjoy FPS. I'd give this game about a 7/Bioshock.

this game is one of those that just flies under the radar. its really cool and worth multiple playthroughs.

there are three time powers you can use:

reverse time: you wont use this much besides a couple of plot puzzles. the only real use for it in combat is when you get hit with a sticky grenade. it'll send it back and give you a brief window to avoid getting hit again.


stop time: this one is also used in a number of puzzles but its actually useful in combat. you can stop time and get easy headshots or you could use it to stop enemy fire and recover your health. of course because its so overpowered it doesnt last very long.


slow time: this one is by far the best. it lasts the longest too. you move at normal speed but everyone else is really slow. its a lot of fun running around getting headshots on everyone.


overall a great game. i definitely recommend it. of course with all the other games available you should probably wait for one of the big seasonal sales to buy it.
