  1. Stressful platforming action made infuriating by a bad camera. [January 2013, p78]

    Chronovolt is buggy, slow-paced and jerky in terms of frame rate. There are many action puzzles better than this on mobile devices.

    Buggy and unpolished, Chronovolt isn't worth your time, no matter how many times your turn the clock back.

    Fiddly controls make this apparently futuristic accelerometer abuser a complete waste of space. [Feb 2013, p.87]
  5. It's not just the ball that will be rolling when you're playing Chronovolt, your eyes will be clocking in overtime too. It might be free if you're subscribed to PlayStation Plus, but you won't be doing yourself any favours by downloading it. It's boring. It's got a ton of bugs. It sucks balls. [January 2013, p.94]

    Chronovolt is definitely a really bad game, not worth the amount of space occupied in your memory card.

    The A.I. is laughable, the camera terrible and the bugs are plentiful.

    Conceptually uninspired, technically disastrous, boring and frustrating to play, PlayerThree title is an inconceivable product.

    Chronovolt is a glitchy and unsatisfying title that's hard to recommend. While you may glean some enjoyment from its opening moments, the novelty swiftly wears thin. This title is best rolled out of sight, and into obscurity.

    Why couldn't the developers just make the right stick control the camera in all directions like any TPS instead of only left and right? An improved camera and complete removal of the story might make this better. Full Review »

    This is an OK puzzle game in it's own right, but the story and characters are flat, The gameplay jittery, controls weird, the trophies don't even work, and none of this has been patched, so, I'd recommend avoiding it unless they give it a serious patch. Full Review »

    The only reason I gave this game a 4 is because of the deal of PS+ I got this game from. The controls are horrible, I had to buy the stupid vehicle pack to get the last few Chronovolts and the graphics are vomit inducing.

    The non-existent story is not worth nothing either and because this game is worth 8$ I would never buy this. Good thing it was on PS+.

    Sony, you should check games out before publishing them.
