  • Summary: SUPERHOT is the first person shooter where time moves only when you move. No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It's just you, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing the weapons of fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and maneuver through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets.

    From the opening stages to its thrilling conclusion, every single moment within SUPERHOT is a memorable one. Even a year removed from its initial release, its innovations are unmatched. Even those that aren’t typically a fan of the genre owe it to themselves to check out one of the finest games released in years.

    Super Hot is a first person shooter unlike any other. It’s very narrative driven, mind blowing, fps similar to games such as Portal or The Stanley Parable. It’s quite the mind trip and the time driven game mechanic is actually a lot of fun. Just be prepared to run around saying “Super Hot” in your head for the next few days. It’s short but sweet and well worth the trip into this virtual world.

    Without a doubt it’s one of the most original shooters ever created, but I must warn you that if you don’t get hooked on challenges, you’ll be done with the game in about 3 hours, because it’s how long the campaign takes. [10/2017, p.72]

    Playing Superhot is probably the closest I'll ever come to feeling like James Bond. I've never experienced anything quite like throwing an empty weapon at an enemy, knocking their weapon out of their hands, grabbing it in midair, and then shooting them with it. If that sounds awesome to you (and why wouldn't it?) then make sure to give Superhot a try.

    Superhot and its VR version finally arrive to PS4 after collecting awards and accolades on Microsoft platforms. It’s an original game, addictive, intelligent and very fresh for those who did not play last year, also it’s more immersive in VR but it has many problems of natural handling with the PS Move.

    A crafty base concept and careful execution make Superhot one of the most intriguing games to come from the recent class of indie-developed shooters. Its bizarre setting and puzzle-like approach are refreshingly original and hopefully something the team will now expand upon following Superhot’s early success.

    Wonky tech and punishing challenges will leave your cold, but with our without VR, this has moments of brilliance that are worth the price of admission alone. [Oct 2017, p.88]

    Very unique! While the story can be confusing, if you pay attention is has a great plot. It plays very uniquely. Basically time only movesVery unique! While the story can be confusing, if you pay attention is has a great plot. It plays very uniquely. Basically time only moves when you move, making a very interesting combat like game. It controls well and for it's style the graphics are great. Definitely a recommended. Expand

    A great game, actually. I would say it's a puzzle, not a shooter. But I'm not in control,

    A great game, actually. I would say it's a puzzle, not a shooter. But I'm not in control, obviously.

    On the bright side:
    The mechanic of attaching time to movement is cool. Special kudos for recreating icon movie sets (I recognised like three scenes from The Matrix). Also, piOS design and sounds are great. And this unexpected Polish song in the credits was also cool.

    On the dark side:
    The setting was cool, but the story itself was too predictable for me. Like one more The Matrix's ideas reuse. And the difficulty sometimes spiked for me to unplayable levels. But I managed to get through.

    un juego muy turbio
    menús extraños, botones mal asignados, ruido, sin banda sonora...
    demasiado sencillo un FPS con tiempo bala constante
