  • 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.

    When I reflect fondly on my previously-mentioned SUPERHOT VR experience, I think about looking fully around the environment, physically ducking to avoid bullets, and even using a throwing motion to launch objects across the room. While that version was exhausting and exhilarating, SUPERHOT on Switch feels like an ideal complement with its encapsulated, portable, and original take on the adventure. For players who are looking to jump into the world of SUPERHOT for the first time, Nintendo Switch feels like the right place to get shooting and moving.

    Overall, Superhot on Nintendo Switch is a great way to experience one of the better and more unique games of recent years. If you’ve already played it before, it isn’t worth buying again but newcomers should absolutely consider this version as an option to play Superhot. It even has a nice icon and I know that matters to many people for Nintendo Switch games.

    Superhot offers a first-person shooter experience unlike any other, and although the main campaign is a little bit on the short side, once you’ve made it through you’ll have dozens of new ways to replay it should you wish. We’re not entirely sure why this particular phrase comes to mind, but Superhot is the most innovative shooter we’ve played in years.

    Superhot is a wild ride. It’s exhilarating when, against all odds, you shatter every combatant into pieces and make it through a stage unscathed. While the game’s length is disappointing and its gyroscope controls are hard to perfect, it’s such a fresh idea that it’s hard not to recommend. Give it a download even if you’re not into the FPS genre. Above all, Superhot is a title that is about quick thinking and adapting to any situation, even when it goes south.

    Bottom line up front... super hot is worth the buy. I first played superhot on PC and thought it was well worth the 9 bucks i got it for onBottom line up front... super hot is worth the buy. I first played superhot on PC and thought it was well worth the 9 bucks i got it for on steam. I didn't expect much other than a bullet time shooter, however the story, and the unlocked modes after the story make the game worth it. I like it so much that I purchased it for the switch at full price, just to see what it was like with motion controls. I have just about every FPS on the switch and the controls for SuperHot are very similar and work well for this type of game. I created an account here just to tell people what a great game this is.

    Graphics = 8 of 10 (compared to PC)
    Game play = 10 of 10 ( on par with PC)
    Finding a decent shooter on Nintendo switch.... Priceless

Both gameplays were great but the one on console was much better. I played this game for the first time with controller and it's freaking great, better than with keyboard.

    It's the most innovative shooter I've played in years!

    Gameplay can be challenging and satisfying especially with the endless mode and in the challenge made, which are unlocked after beating this game for the first time. I highly recommend getting this game!
    P.S.: On the Polish shop this game costs 30 PLN meanwhile on US shop it's 30$ (right now 1$ is worth 3,9 PLN, so it's cheaper on Polish eShop)

    SUPERHOT might have been a one-trick pony: a simple shooter that takes the classic "time warp" mechanic to its extreme. In SUPERHOT, timeSUPERHOT might have been a one-trick pony: a simple shooter that takes the classic "time warp" mechanic to its extreme. In SUPERHOT, time functions normally only when you move. When you stand still, you're in a permanent (and very slow) bullet time.

    In theory, that mechanic should give you plenty of time to assess the situation and gain the upper hand in every scenario. In practice, some levels in SUPERHOT are surprisingly tense, as you struggle to take advantage of each moment to pull off elegant and very satisfying attack sequences.

    SUPERHOT has low production values for a shooter–the same human models everywhere, a short length for the main story, and bland animations. Even with all those shortcomings, however, SUPERHOT is an exceptional action game. Yes, it's short–but it's exactly as long as it should be before getting repetitive, and the bleak story and addictive loop will keep you glued to the Switch until the end.
