    Time Recoil isn't going to redefine the cyberpunk genre, win awards for its writing or make players philosophize on the ethics of time travel. It’s a satisfying blitz that wants to chill you out and challenge you, and that's enough.

    Time Recoil plays like a toned-down Hotline Miami that strips away the stealth focus and ramps up the twin-stick shooting. Poor enemy AI makes some scenarios a bit unbelievable but the core gameplay and time mechanics keep it enjoyable from start to finish.

    Time Recoil packs a lot of fun into a relatively short experience, but the lack of effort invested into the plot, visuals, and audio holds it back from sitting at the top of the genre.

    Time Recoil takes advantage of a good bullet-time mechanic and some very clever level design but is bogged down by a messy story and a lack of variation. Strategic shoot 'em up fans may enjoy mastering the game but fans of more dynamic action will be left wanting.

    Many aspects of Time Recoil show potential, but the only part that is actualized is its gameplay. The typically confusing time-travel plot impedes enjoyment as does the randomness in levels, which nearly diminishes that stellar gameplay.

    This is my favorite 10tons twin stick shooter. They finally developed some style above generic. The story is kinda of incomprehensible butThis is my favorite 10tons twin stick shooter. They finally developed some style above generic. The story is kinda of incomprehensible but it is still fun. Shooting and dashing through walls is what makes this game a super fun blast. Levels can be repetitive but it is great in short bursts. Runs almost perfect on Vita with rare slow downs. Get this game. Expand
