    It's a power fantasy that makes you work for the right to feel like a god and when your plans come together it's a joyous romp to play.

    SUPERHOT: Mind Control Delete feels like the full-length vision of the concept that was the original game. With more abilities, enemy types, levels, and lore, this is one of the easiest games to recommend for fans of the original.

    Superhot: Mind Control Delete’s focus on improvisation and rogue-lite elements excellently complement its “time moves only when you move” core gameplay loop and distinctive aesthetic, making it a first-person shooter that fans of the genre shouldn’t miss.

    Superhot: Mind Control Delete somehow manages to give a lot more of the same slow-mo action without becoming tiresome or boring. However, things do get bogged down towards the end when the game has a little too much fun at the player's expense.

    This is a tough but addictive installment for the third SUPERHOT follow-on. This game includes multi-level stages, a variety of new enemies, and a roguelike element that puts a fresh twist on the beloved original. Mind Control Delete is also free to those who already own SUPERHOT.

    While Mind Control Delete is a good expansion with a few clever ideas, it does fall short in some ways, mainly it's rougelike parts.

    Mind Control Delete ultimately feels like an arcade-mode add-on that should’ve been included with the original release. Although it’s novel, I value the original’s audacity in presenting a brilliant idea without wasting any of my time. Mind Control Delete feels like the antithesis of that – it’s a bloated diversion that exists to provide more hours of gameplay without any larger purpose. It’s just more for the sake of more, and after my time with it, I’d say it’s actually too much, too late.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I freaking loved it.

    The ending is controversial, because ppl think you'll get more stuff if you go through the painful hour (maybe) of wandering through an ASCII landscape, followed by another 8 hr real time wait to "restore your files". You barely get anything new. A few hard levels, and the "PURE" core which is a vanilla game mode to try on those really hard levels.

    I think there's a joke in the 8 hr wait (now 2.5 hrs), that they want you to use a cheat tool to hack the "hacking" game you've been playing. Some ppl feel weird about doing that.

    Also, the un-killable mini-bosses are supposed to be an obstacle. I'm not sure how that's confusing to anyone. After you get the power to deflect all bullets at lightning speed and hotswap multiple times, how would you like the game to get harder?

    Really great game that you should probably check out soon. Some people criticize the whole randomly generated aspect of the game but I thinkReally great game that you should probably check out soon. Some people criticize the whole randomly generated aspect of the game but I think it works really well and tests your ability and skill. Only issue I have is with me, not the game because it can be infuriating sometimes. Please play this.

    P.S: The game tricks you at the beginning with some fake “The End” screens. Some people have probably fallen for it so I’m warning you beforehand.

    Its still not changed on consoles. Still have to wait eight freaking. hours. I waited my eight hours and didn‘t see anything new (I know nowIts still not changed on consoles. Still have to wait eight freaking. hours. I waited my eight hours and didn‘t see anything new (I know now that I missed the “PURE” core), so I assumed that I should go to the end and see if there’s some new mega boss, or now you can kill the three Un-Killables. I went through deleting all the cores again, and all that Jazz, and now I’m waiting an extra eight hours.
    I know that its mainly my fault (although it baffles me that they would leave the ability to go through all this again, why would they even leave it in there for somebody to stumble into), but at this point Iv’e left a negative review, and I cant recommend SHMCD to any friends (which disappoints me because OG Superhot on Endless Mode was always really fun to play when we would visit each other’s houses). It doesn’t add enough new things (you‘ve got a few new things to throw, a force pull, and extremely repetitive gameplay), and is just wasting my time. Even buying the game for $15 on discount feels like too much.
    Superhot: Mind Control Delete is not the most innovative shooter I’ve played in years, its the dumbest.

    Such trash in comparison with previous games. Invincible enemies, repeated random levels, the story written by an idiot. Not recommended.
