Mar 29, 2011If you like skill based action games, innovative game play and high score hunting, ZeitÂ² is almost a must have title. The longer you play the game the more you are sucked in by its briliant mechanics. It really brings new live to the shoot 'em up genre. ZeitÂ² is at its best with an addictive and eternal fight for a good leaderboard position ;)
The demo does not give you the slightest idea of what action and long time motivation can be found in ZeitÂ². You need to give the game time. I was sceptic at first but got the game and don't regret it. You just realized how deep the possibilities are after playing for a while. It adds a new dimension and tactical element to a shooting game.
The time traveling doesn't just undo what you played to make it easier like in Forza 2. You can actually interact with your own playing by "duplicating" your ship through the time warp. This allows for awesome moves that special shots.
+ clever time travel that are essential to the gameplay
+ AWESOME variety of game modes
+ great challenges that work like ingame-achievements on top of the 200 gamerscore
- graphics are a little repetitive
- multiplayer only through (the very well executed) leaderboards
This game wasn't advertised a lot and that's why you could easily overlook it, but it was a very nice addition to my game library. I got it over a month ago and still fire it up when I have a couple of minutes to play. ZeitÂ² deserves some more attention!… Expand
Apr 28, 2013it's a classic shoot'em up with an interesting time rewinding mechanic that adds alot of strategy. the game is fun and also quite hard. the arcade mode is short but the game has alot of other game modes and you can always try again to get a better score. the game controls great and is very fluid. the soundtrack is amongst the best in gaming and the boss music is my 2nd favorite boss theme ever, only topped by okamis final boss.… Expand
