    Whether you dive into its meta narrative or rehearse the executions of eight ballroom guards for the sixteenth time, Superhot invents a tactical, first-person shooter genre to call its own. Please, Superhot team, I need more.

    SUPERHOT is a brilliant title. Each level is awesome and offer something different each time you play it. Its artistic achievement and its very innovative concept make it a smart game.

    The world looks simple, but the minimalistic approach works really well. I would hugely recommend this game, and has been one of my favourite FPS games recently.

    Amazingly addictive shooter raises the genre of action games from the ashes. You are the masters of the time and fun – what else could you wish for? Perhaps just a few more missions and a bit fewer of the technical issues. [Issue#262]

    Think of it as the videogame equivalent of a brilliant short film. Wasn’t that great, and wouldn’t you be excited to see it developed into something feature length? Stranger things have happened.

    It doesn’t push its ideas as far as it should, but this is a cleverly unique puzzle game that turns normal first person shooters on their head.

    Questões gráficas, sonoras e de enredo são quase imperceptíveis, pois todo o brilho do jogo está na sua gameplay.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. [Brief Synopsis of Full Review]

    Whereas many strategy or puzzle games last much longer than they should or wrap up much sooner than anticipated, I think Superhot nails just about the right amount of time to place an emphasis on standard gameplay. Before things can get too overused or stale the main content is over and it's onto the seemingly neverending variations of levels available to test yourself with. To add to replay value there are also differing "modes" that prevent the use of certain items or make the main objective be that you complete the level in a specific fashion, furthering adding elements of strategy and puzzle to the gameplay. Simple in concept and only relatively more complicated in execution, Superhot is super and it is hot.

    Concept: Take the core of gameplay from any shooter and that gameplay will revolve around shooting, plain and simple. It's in the title just like it's in gaming DNA. Now add a twist where the entire thing moves in slow motion and you're prone to insta-kill enemies just as they can do so to you. Messes with your mind a little bit at first doesn't it?

    Graphics: I personally loved the art style that permeates this world. Your enemies are brightly colored but not so detailed as to be fleshed out beyond mere polygonal shapes. The same can be said for the surrounding world, which lacks color but remains sharp and clear in its definite shapes and settings.

    Sound: The sound work is nothing special or remotely spectacular but what it does is excellent pace the game along so that you never feel like you're chugging along slowly, rather playing through in a blur of speed alongside the constantly crescendoing and galloping soundtrack.

    Playability: There should be no confusion here once the controls have been established, as your one and only goal is to move forward at all costs, eliminating those who dare to stand in your way and doing your best to survive their counterattacks.

    Entertainment: For a title that revolves around slowing combat down, I never once felt bored or tired of the matters at hand and instead felt that much more tense and anxious as I made my way slowly but surely through the levels and the world.

    Replay Value: Moderately High.

    Overall Score: 8.0

    A new and interesting take on the FPS genre with its movement-based time manipulation. Sleek, stylish, and minimal graphical style that worksA new and interesting take on the FPS genre with its movement-based time manipulation. Sleek, stylish, and minimal graphical style that works well to keep the over-the-top violence from seeming gratuitous or disgusting. The story is probably a little too invasive, as it can take you out of the gameplay for a minute or more at a time. Most people will probably decry the length of the game's campaign, which can comfortably be beaten in under an hour and a half. Upon the campaign completion a slew of extra challenges unlock, but they may not be enough to incentivize casual players to stick around. In all a great game that deserves to be played, but perhaps not quite worth the $25 entry fee. Expand

    Pros!:
    -Time moves when you move! What a cool idea
    -Approaching an fps more tactfully than twitchy

    OKS!:
    -Does the whole meta thing in the story
    -environments look the same

    CONS!:
    -Took me hour and a half on the first playthrough. Time normally isn't that big for me but for the price, 24.99 when not on sale, that's a little steep. 14.99 and I would have put the length in the ok section. I recommend picking it up on a steam sale.

    CONCLUSION!:
    -I hope there is a sequel or a fullfledged game that spawns from this. Good proof of concept.

    Es una experiencia muy diferente a los shooter de toda la vida, fusionandolo con un sistema de puzles, por llamarlo de alguna forma, que encaja y crean algo completamente diferente y maravilloso.
    Muy recomendado.
