7.5 / 10.0

Superhot's clever time-manipulation idea delivers consistently fulfilling challenges by turning blink-of-an-eye action into carefully considered and cautious tactical decisions. It avoids potential one-hit death frustration with quick respawns and deaths that always feel earned and avoidable in hindsight. Its unique brand of puzzles are complemented by simplistic but helpfully high-contrast art and sound design, yet undermined by a tedious, intrusive story and a reluctance to put new game-changing spins on its ideas to extend their lives.

Effortlessly stylish, perhaps to the detriment of substance. But Superhot isn't one to miss.

Digital violence has never been so intoxicating - but there's more here than mere slaughter.

It doesn't push its ideas as far as it should, but this is a cleverly unique puzzle game that turns normal first person shooters on their head.
