    A unique, clever, satisfying and endearing game. There's very little negative to say about this brilliant time-travelling shooter - we enjoyed every second of our time with it. [Issue#262, p.74]

    Super Time Force Ultra is a decent porting for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The game experience is either fast and tactical thanks to time travelling and there are many different characters to control, each one with his own skills.

    Only minor control issues hamper this deceptively clever and immensely entertaining game. [Nov 2015, p.100]

    A fun 2D action-packed platformer game notable for its frantic action, sense of humour and smart use of time tricks.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is such a fun game. The retro 2D pixel graphics are spot on. It's so much fun to rewind time and play alongside yourself as another character. The kooky plot is amusing and the characters pretty funny too. Me and my 2 young children love playing this together. Such a laugh! The way you can unlock new characters in the game by saving their lives, then rewind time and play as them before they've even been rescued is a master-stroke. (You can even have a character help to rescue theirself!) A real gem in the indie game crowd. Expand

But due to PS Plus, I got this game for free onI am a sucker for indie titles, and I probably would have gotten this on Steam eventually... But due to PS Plus, I got this game for free on PS4. Now, don't get me wrong, the game is pretty creative and has a lot of humor. I just didn't feel very satisfied while playing through it. First of all, the time-rewind mechanic kind of slows down the action. Yes, I get that the whole premise of this title is the time travelling gimmick... But, I just think they could have executed this better, without slowing down the gun n' run gameplay. Aside from that though, the game does offer plenty of levels and a pretty sizable roster of characters, which you unlock along the way. This is actually a great game for speedrunners, and does provide a fair bit of challenge at some points. 7/10 Expand

    It isn't amazing but it isn't terrible. The whole "timeout" mechanic is by far the best thing about this game. I definitely found itIt isn't amazing but it isn't terrible. The whole "timeout" mechanic is by far the best thing about this game. I definitely found it challenging (and rewarding) to use the timeout mechanic to complete certain levels. The retro-themed levels themselves look great. However the game is set back by a number of problems. Firstly, the "one hit and you're dead" mechanic. I died way too many times in this game which was quite frustrating. I wish there was a health bar which would have to be depleted for you to die. Furthermore there were situations where too much was happening on the screen (explosion, deaths, gun shots, etc.), making it difficult to track where my character was. All in all, it's an alright game. Expand

    Awful game. Overly complex and stupid time controls, swapping characters and a constant count down clock make for a frustrating game. ThisAwful game. Overly complex and stupid time controls, swapping characters and a constant count down clock make for a frustrating game. This looked like at last a homage to the retro greats without the usual pretentious gimmicks that ruin modern retro style games. Unfortunately it's not. The frustrating mess like gameplay means you never really focus on the graphics or art style or have any enjoyment, you just look at that fukcing clock. Avoid at all costs. Expand
