A slow and derivative slog. Your health comes back so quickly that you never feel like you're in danger. However, enemies soak up a half-dozen shots to the chest before dying, so you don't feel powerful either. Killing them doesn't feel like victory, it feels like a chore. The time powers are uninspired and not particularly useful.

And it's ripping off Half-Life 2 in a way that just feels pathetic. You fight battle-robots alongside The Rebels in a bombed out European city while the Evil Scientist President harangues you from a giant tv screen. You even run down a canal while baddies shoot at you from up on the walls!

Don't waste your time on this.

Very enjoyable if linear game. Time manipulation is creative and weapons fun. I hope they come out with a TimeShift 2. I only played the single player mode so I can't comment on the multiplayer features.

On medium it took me 10 hours.
KI is not as good as the one of F.E.A.R,, but close to it.
With the time stopping, forwarding and backwarding you have an unfair advantage - and they are used for some minor puzzles.
Story is forgettable - and dat ending, dat bossfight... My oh my!
Game has its lenghts (even if it´s only 10 hours on medium...or as they call it "hard")- you run around from checkpoint to checkpoint, kill some enemies, do some minor task - and that´s it.
If you don´t move over a certain line the enemy doesn´t engage you.
Game mechanics are fine.
Even for today graphics, and effects are good - not outrageously excellent, but very solid.
Soundtrack is ok, but nothing that stay is one´s memory.


I still recommend it if it is on sale.

Good old school FPS. The combat is fast paced, the weapons feel great, and the time control mechanics work great. The graphics also hold up well.

Beyond that there isn't really anything else to get invested in. The story is forgettable and not well presented. There are no characters to follow or care about, and no major memorable action set pieces.

It is just you, your guns, and a lot of bad guys to kill. Which is still worth your time when executed properly, as it is here.

While I find the still $19.99 price tag a bit much for a 7 year old game I still found this very enjoyable.

The game is very much like the Half Life series as it blends puzzles in with action and genuinely tried something innovative with the time control mechanics which work very well.

The graphics are pretty good although the environments cna look very bland. Lots of flat textures and the colors are mostly grey. The story itself is very much like Half Life 2 as there is a dystopian future (or past as it is in this game) that is ruled over by a tyrant who loves to talk about himself over large jumbo trons. The voice acting isn't bad but it's nothing to write home about. It doesn't get in the way but there's never a moment where I went "Oh wow what a great line!"

The weapons are all varied and pretty damn fun to use. The action in the game really feels like one of those games nowadays that tries to capture that "old-school" shooter vibe and yet the game just plays it straight intead of trying to shove it down my throat. When I slow down time then unload both barrels of my shotgun on a guy and I watch as his ragdoll flies backward while still in slow motion as his blood splatters on my screen I know it was badass I don't need a game (or game's character) to TELL me I'm badass.

This is the only purely action time manipulation game I can think of other than maybe Singularity although it's not really the same manipulation. Not many games allow me to reverse time and walk past the guys who just kicked the door down in front of me and unkick the door down in reverse time so that when I bring time back I was behind them the whole time with shotgun aimed squarely at their backs.

Is it the best game ever? No. It's weak story and bland environments really bring the game down and you'll find yourself not caring about any of the stories or characters and Dr. Krone does not make for a good villian especially when you barely here him speak other than on some jumbo trons while loud gunfire is happening. To bring up Half Life again, Dr. Breen was such a good villian because his face was everywhere constantly preaching the combine's message as he has sold out humainty so that he can live in comfort. Behind all of his messages and threats he is just a coward sitting up in a tower. You really get to hate the guy. Dr. Krone is just evil scientist number 7 that wants to rule the world becasue...EVIL.

If you are looking for an action packed old school style shooting game however this is the game for you. How many games let you pause time, take an enemy's weapon, stick said enemy with a grenade, then use his gun to headshot his buddy he was talking to? Tell me please because if there was I'd be playing that game too.

You can STOP the time, get behind the enemy, SLOWLY kill them all, and then REVERSE the time to do it again. Oh man. Pure satisfaction and pleasure.

For god's sake. YOU CAN WALK ON WATER. You are Jesus Christ (with a gun).

10/10, would bang

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.

This game is a hidden gem. You can control time, make it go slower, stop it or going back. It has good weapons, but you can carry 3 at a time plus grenades.
+ time control
+ weapons
Graphics are not bad.
