A short but uniquely brilliant strategy shooter
A unique shooter that provides a different style from anything you ever experienced. It's addictive and very fun.

The game continues to utilize its brilliant concept, and despite a few shortcomings, this game had me glued to the screen in ways I haven't been engaged in since last year's GOTY contenders.
Superhot relies heavily on its gameplay, which just happens to be the only part of the experience that is engaging. The rest is a bit uninspired, but if you don't need impressive visuals or a deep narrative, Superhot earns a recommendation.
Somehow, peering into the world of SUPERHOT‘s text terminals and stark environments through my Switch’s LCD screen feels very correct, as though it was always meant to be this way. In a probably accidental but happy parallel, it feels like I have gotten my hands on some kind of special prototype that I’m not supposed to see. SUPERHOT almost works too well on Switch, and being able to play it on a system that fits in my hands with near-perfect accuracy is an almost magical experience.
Superhot is a welcome surprise for 2016. As one of the more unique FPS games out there, its style will keep you hooked for its duration. It might not have the legs or depth of its competition, but it makes up for that in terms of sheer style.
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.
You may be able to stop time, but we're sure you won't be able to stop playing SUPERHOT.

SUPERHOT is a unique and inventive game, very stylish and with an interesting narration. The campaign is a bit on the short side, but there's a lot of potential for replayability.

Divorced from the need to spotlight its commentary or be clever, Superhot's shootouts make its case better than its narrative layers ever could. Its methodical take on shooter combat forces you to linger on the consequences of your actions without saying a word. And that's all it needed to be. But when it tries to connect the dots for you, it feels overbearing and self-congratulatory, diluting the potency of its novelty.
