    Timeshifts graphics for its time were great and has a good set up but it commits the worst offense its boring. The gameplay at first seems cool but it gets repetitive and the story is the weakest part of the game. This guy wants to kill you because..... you need a villain. You reverse, pause, and slow time but you do it over and over again it get boring. It even has some very easy puzzlesTimeshifts graphics for its time were great and has a good set up but it commits the worst offense its boring.

You reverse, pause, and slow time but you do it over and over again it get boring. It even has some very easy puzzles that last 2 seconds. you get a few guns them being a pistol, flame pistol, crossbow, assault rifle, missile launcher, shotgun, and even a fire rifle. but you kill the same enemies over and over maybe get a special enemy but way to few. Also I think at some point your guy lost his vocal cords because he very says a word. Multiplayer is a ghost world it has standard game modes and time grenades but in the end there's not much special one time. I literally feel asleep playing this Expand

    Timeshift is a decent shooter, with some interesting time-manipulating abilities. However, the graphics are not too great, and the timeshifting becomes boring because of the repetitive and linear gameplay, not to mention the story, which is a great mess.

    I have owned this game since 2008 and recently decided to play it through again, initially the control scheme felt alien to me after other shooters like far cry 3 and call of duty but after about 10 minutes it all made sense. I had forgotten how good it is to stop time and fire a shotgun at an enemy's head then go behind him and watch his head get blown off from another angle or steal anI have owned this game since 2008 and recently decided to play it through again, initially the control scheme felt alien to me after other shooters like far cry 3 and call of duty but after about 10 minutes it all made sense. I had forgotten how good it is to stop time and fire a shotgun at an enemy's head then go behind him and watch his head get blown off from another angle or steal an enemy's weapon and stick a grenade to his back then watch his reaction before blowing up and killing his friends... Fun fun fun. If you have the time and a spare ten bucks go get this game from the bargain table and enjoy. 8 for the fun factor plus a 2 for value for money. Collapse

    TimeShift owns Battlefield and CoD in its own way. Did you know Sabre Interactive was talking about a second game? Shame they wasted their resources on Battle: Los Angelos. For really though TimeShift is unique game unlike these modern shooters, if there was a TS2 it WOULD be alot better then bf/cod.

I swear this is the ONLY game on PS3 that I have played the most hours with for the story and the multi-player. The only issues I saw with the game was some frame rate drops and sound glitching other then that it still owns!!! TiMEshiFT >ALL! Expand

  1. The epitome of mediocrity; it brings a few nice features with it, but ultimately adds nothing to the very crowded first-person shooter segment. Its A.I. is absurdly dumb, but requires more than a fair share of bullets to kill.

    A great deal of work was done to bring the look and feel of TimeShift up to date, though an equal amount of time should have been spent on the design and presentation.
  3. It doesn’t make TimeShift a bad game, it edges slightly above average thanks to the time powers.
