    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.

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

    Love this game, it's super addictive and more challenging then you would think.

    The story is very minimalist but does enough to keep you engaged between levels.

    The graphics whilst very minimalist like everything else about the game are not bad just very stylised, it wont be for everyone it certainly worked for me.

    Whilst the game is very short (3 to 4 hours) the additional modes which unlock at the end really do provide a lot of reason to keep playing.
    Endless mode is a time sink and modified versions of the main campaign like Katana only mode are equally if not more addictive and challenging.

    All in all this is a great little puzzle shooter for anyone interested in a unique challenging and fun gameplay experience.

    At £17.99 on the British Xbox store I feel it is good value for money and an enjoyable experience I can see myself dipping back in to here and there when I'm in the mood for something fun.

    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.

Time moves at a glacial pace until you move, making for some gun-play that's more tactical than hectic. The gameplay is exhilarating in its own way. It's a good formula, but too repetitive to be completely addicting. I do have a couple of criticisms of Superhot.

    First is the story mode. The initial campaign you must play through to unlock the Endless and Challenge modes is mercifully short, yet still annoying. Some might enjoy the odd presentation, I suppose, but I found the plot to be a chore. It never grabbed me, and I felt Superhot's apparent tongue-in-cheek order to recommend the game to others wasn't as charming as they might've thought.

    The other glaring issue with Superhot is the unrealistic body movement of the enemies. The unfortunate reality is if this problem were fixed, the game would be way too easy. Enemies make drastic, unrealistic and sudden contortions that make reading body movement as an indicator of where to aim your shots a highly unreliable prospect.

    Other than these complaints, Superhot is an enjoyable game at its core.
