    Although the campaign only lasts about two hours, I found it to be the perfect length to establish what it does, to get me invested, and then have me on my way before ever wearing out its welcome.

    Superhot is a really enjoyable game, the disconnect between the gameplay and narrative only serve to intensify both.

    The SUPERHOT Team managed to take what seems like a fairly simple mechanic and turn it into a game that is full of possibilities...The game is one of the most innovative shooters in years.

    It seems a bit paradoxical that SUPERHOT simultaneously plays exactly like every other shooter you’ve ever played and nothing like them at all, and yet, this is the case. Its inspired use of time makes for something that is as much a strategy or puzzle game as it is a shooter. And even though, you’ll only bring a few hours of your life to a standstill to be entertainment by SUPERHOT, those are a few hours well spent.

    Superhot is an effortlessly cool, highly original take on the fist-person shooter genre. [July 2016, p.79]

    An original puzzle game with a great use of the bullet time. Its main mode is short and it hasn't got many modes, but its approach gives fun from the beginning to the end.

    I wanted to love Superhot more than I did, but its simplistic design and lack of variety really hurt it, even with its short campaign length.

    The best indie-game i have played! It`s short, but every level is interesting and the story has unexpected moments.

The experience is super concise. Nothing in the main story mode is unnessary or repetitive. Being able to replay the story mode with modifires made it almost a roguelike - you learn the patterns but your build keeps changing. Can't wait for content updates! Expand

    Original shooter where time only moves when you do. Really more of a tactical game.

    Pros: - Original with awesome time bending gameplay

    Pros:
    - Original with awesome time bending gameplay
    - If not a big fan of shooters and more tactics this is great
    - The story was interesting/funny kind of a portal feel

    Cons:
    - Fairly short, I wanted more
    - Would of been cool to see this type of game with real world graphics
    - Not much variation in levels

    Instead I walked arse backwards into a sci-fi meta-thriller that ended up with me playing through the main story in one sitting and then doing it again a day later just for the fun of it.

    At this stage I imagine my friends are sick of hearing about this game because I've recommended it excessively to anyone who will listen to me long enough to get the word "superhot" out of my mouth.

    My one criticism of the game is that it feels like more could be done with such a unique concept. I was surprised by how much was done with it in the first place but after playing through it there are some things I felt it was missing even if it just amounted to more weapons in play in the game or a greater variation of environments. (I had one friend suggest the idea of diving from the roof of a skyscraper and eliminating targets on each floor on the way down as your hurtle past windows in slow motion with the end game being you attempting to wipe them all out and then transfer your consciousness to a waiting enemy on the ground below to avoid death).

Such an obvious idea and still it took so long until someone did that. The whole style of the game is very cool and fitting.
    On the negative side, the (pretty good) story is only about two hours long. After that, you are left with a lot of challenges and a few "endless" modes, but these just recycle the levels from the main story over and over again. It's still worth the price for the story alone.
