SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE Reviews
A fantastic return to Superhot's slick shootouts, at the expense of the original's deft pacing.
The various gameplay modifiers and enemy types add to the puzzle-like elements of the original, further evolving Superhot's compelling formula
Mind Control Delete is a fascinating remix of the concepts that made the first two games so influential.
Mind Control Delete throws a few wild twists into the Superhot formula, but it might be too much of a good thing.
It's a power fantasy that makes you work for the right to feel like a god and when your plans come together it's a joyous romp to play.
Superhot left players wanting MORE and Mind Control Delete demonstrates that that might have been a good idea.
Superhot: Mind Control Delete takes the action puzzles of the original game and throws a wealth of new abilities and weapons into more randomised levels. It takes the core Superhot concept and puts a fresh spin on things. It's a shame that it's let down a little by some technical issues, as it's the best version of Superhot's unique gameplay to date.
Mind Control Delete is a unique puzzle game. It adds new levels, powerful enemies and hacks to the original gameplay.

If you wanted more of the same then Superhot: Mind Control Delete's idiosyncrasies will probably frustrate you more than entertain, but if you look beyond them you'll find a wickedly addicting game beneath. Mind Control Delete may rely too heavily on rolling the dice to extend its playtime, but fans willing to put their qualms aside will discover yet another fine entry in the series.
Superhot: MIND CONTROL DELETE is a truly fantastic, challenging shooter that makes an already incredible premise even better
This standalone expansion to SUPERHOT is a welcome addition to the formula. What it lacks in bespoke puzzle elements, it makes up for in a completely fresh and vastly expanded approach to the central concept.
This is a tough but addictive installment for the third SUPERHOT follow-on. This game includes multi-level stages, a variety of new enemies, and a roguelike element that puts a fresh twist on the beloved original. Mind Control Delete is also free to those who already own SUPERHOT.
Ultimately it doesn’t matter who you’re fighting or why. What matters is the fight itself, the spectacle and the flow. Superhot’s self-directed choreography emerges triumphant; stylish, dynamic and gripping.
SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE is a classic standalone add-on with some new features. The developers did not call it a sequel, but they tried to expand on the unique idea of the original.

Taking Superhot's amazing and addictive gameplay and expanding it in several directions, Superhot: Mind Control Delete feels exactly right.
The only thing more difficult than making a revolution is to re-make a revolution. SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE is still a fun shooter, based on innovative and intriguing ideas, but no longer as effective as they had been in 2016. The roguelite approach certainly gives the game a more conspicuous length, but on the other hand ends up watering down at least part of the mechanics, making the overall experience less incisive than that of the original chapter. After all, as SUPERHOT has always taught, reality is all about perception.

Gameplay might be much the same, but the Cores and Hacks make the action far more varied. The random nature of the level order and the Hacks offered to you mean there's almost a rogue-like flavour to it, though this is still very much a linear game. It's just a little wider, and that meta-storyline and clinical creepiness is absolutely still part of the experience. Endless and Infinite modes mean you'll never run short of baddies to break, a task that's just as satisfying here -- if not more so with the added power-ups.
Superhot: Mind Control Delete represents an innovative and meaningfully iterative take on the Superhot formula, swapping out some of its more cerebral design for a much larger, roguelike effort that proves once again that the series is one of the most innovative shooters on the market today.
Superhot: Mind Control Delete somehow manages to give a lot more of the same slow-mo action without becoming tiresome or boring. However, things do get bogged down towards the end when the game has a little too much fun at the player's expense.
