    In Super Time Force, the failures live on, but not as condemnations of my lack of skill. My sloppiness as a player is not useless. Seeing them all hopping around on the screen simultaneously, I realize: there can be grace in failure.

    It's hard not to feel that the game would have been better served by slightly slowing down the pace of its basic shooting elements. At times, it feels as much like a spatial puzzle as it does a test of your reflexes. The best spatial puzzles, though, allow for a measure of patience and consideration. As a twitchy shooter, Super Time Force never lets you catch your breath and stand firm in time, leaving you under ceaseless pressure.

    Super Time Force is an old fashioned side scrolling 2D shooter with a clever twist, time travel!

    Super Time Force is an old fashioned side scrolling 2D shooter with a clever twist, time travel!

    The player is only given around 60 seconds to complete each level but at any point during a stage the player can rewind time, choose another (or the same) character, and then fight alongside your previous run through the level. The shooting mechanics themselves could only be described as competent but thanks to this unique concept, which is put to good use by the way levels are designed, Super Time Force makes for a great little title.

    This is exactly what Xbox Arcade games should be, four to five hours of originality.
