SuperHot is a fun little game which has a very interesting set of ideas. But the main true benefit here comes from the fact that the entire experience is created with the idea of time. Basically, time will move only when you do, something that does offer complete control for the player.

Of course there are many levels to choose from and some of them might place you, at least at first, in some impossible situations. You need to strategize your moves and the more you do the better it will be. It’s all about quality here and you need to figure out the best possible set of tools and moves at your disposal.

The game can be seen as a continuation of the bullet time mechanics in Max Payne, but it also delivers something fun for everyone. Despite being a combination of shadows, black, white and red with various nuances, the graphics here are very good and they do manage to create a very interesting, integrated and fun experience as you go along. It’s exciting to explore all the possibilities with SuperHot and the more you play, the more hooked you get to the mechanics and the fun experience you can obtain in this regard.

The price of around 22 euros can be a little high when compared to the content you get but the game does receive updates and maybe some new levels are on the way as well. The community or at least parts of it criticize it due to this, but the reality is that the title does innovate quite a lot and that’s maybe the best thing about it. There are always new ideas for you to enjoy, the experience is exciting and genuine, not to mention that the gameplay is here for you to strategize it as you want.

You will find the experience refreshing most of the time and since the power is in your hands, nothing is more exciting to say the least.

There are some levels that will make you wonder how you can complete them as they don’t seem to have a solution, but it’s quite impressive the quality of the gameplay that you get and in the end it’s just plain fun which is what matters the most.

From graphics to gameplay and everything in between, you have a lot to love in SuperHot and I really feel that this title is one of the most innovative shooters in years. Granted, it’s short, it might not have the best narration and the graphics might not be next-gen, but the true benefit comes from finding solutions and manipulating time as a whole.

You will definitely like SuperHot as it delivers a pleasant and fun experience that you will enjoy. Not only that, you can always start over in case anything goes wrong.
