No Time to Explain
While there are certain aspects of the game that could've used polishing, No Time To Explain remains a quirky, humorous, adventurous platformer that's built for the old-school at heart. It'll give you your money's worth, provided you have the patience to see it through to the end. Here's hoping you do – the future needs you. "DOIN' IT!"
No Time To Explain is a gamer's game.
'No Time to Explain' has promising gameplay, and perhaps tinyBuild will be able to work it into something more manageable with future releases. As a precision platformer it struggles greatly on the Xbox One. It's not a bad game, and that just about sums it up.
Lacking the personality and precision of its platforming contemporaries, No Time To Explain is a brutally unfair and embarrassingly humorless entry into the genre.
No Time To Explain Remastered definitely improves upon the original and makes for a better experience overall. The laser rifle/jetpack mechanic is still fun and its dialog is still hilarious. However, some of the levels and platforming require a huge amount of trial-and-error before getting through and this certainly weighs the game down. Even so, provided you have the skills or friends to play in the co-op mode, you can have quite a bit of fun with this title.
Remaking a game that is inherently flawed has to be an incredible challenge and tinyBuild did the best it possibly could. While its physics are largely suspect, its pacing ranges from great to dreadful and its boss battles are universally poor, the new version of No Time to Explain could potentially warrant a playthrough from someone looking for something inherently stupid (with this last word being used in the most endearing way possible).
