    If you’re looking for a soulful, artistic shooter Superhot is it.

    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.

    'SUPERHOT is the most innovative shooter I've played in years!'

    When I downloaded SUPERHOT and played the first level, I knew what the game's intent and direction was. It really didn't make the game any less enjoyable. The storyline took a backseat to the underutilized slow motion bullet time effect found in the Max Payne series. The graphics are as expected with an indie game budget (wireframe-esque with cell shading and shadows) and it compliments the game. The replay value is quite high and it's not a stretch to assume others will find the time trial and challenge modes a treat.

    I really do recommend this game to anyone who is a fan of the Matrix shootout scene or Max Paynes bullet time feature!

Unfortunately pretty soon the game becomes a boringIt's an innovative mix of a shooter and a puzzle which thinks a lot of itself. Unfortunately pretty soon the game becomes a boring trial-and-error grind of maneuvering around flying bullets and running enemies.

    The good:
    - time moves only when you move (but bullets still fly, although slowly, even when time is stopped), an innovative idea!
    - an interesting system of menus, resembling that of Norton Commander and DOS. It was fun to just explore every "file" there and see the game of life simulation and other useless stuff

    The so-so:
    - laconic, minimalistic graphical design. I didn't like it much but didn't hate it either
    - actions like punching an enemy, taking a gun, firing a gun all take some real time which isn't obvious at first and caused me some frustration in the early levels.

    The bad:
    - the levels are just scripted sequences. You mostly stay at the same place, and enemies run from all directions, from behind doors and start shooting at you. This means that you will restart and restart the same level until you know where everyone will appear until you can beat it. Or you can rotate the camera after every step so as to see if anyone new has appeared behind you. Not a very pleasant experience.

    Ultimately, this game is very shallow. As soon as the novelty wears off and you "get it", there isn't much left. But it's still worth a look.

    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.
