SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE Reviews
SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE is an engaging, albeit shallow experience. The combat is outstanding and still one of the best you can experience, only enhanced by the new abilities featured in this standalone. However, where the combat has improved, the taut and well-thought-out nature of the levels is lost due to the roguelike nature of the game, with the thought and surprise of the originals story lost in what is mostly meandering waffle here. Is it a good game? Yes, it's well worth playing if you just want the combat. If you want more, you'll likely be disappointed.
Superhot: Mind Control Delete may have gotten its start as an expansion, but it ultimately evolved into a very complete-feeling standalone product. The new gameplay mechanics are awesome, and there's a lot to love about its dozens and dozens of levels. Taking on a room full of enemies in slow motion continues to feel incredible, and there's really nothing quite like it outside of the Superhot series.
The biggest downfall of Mind Control Delete is also its slogan: MORE. The gameplay is still great, but the focus on quantity over quality makes the experience feel shallow.
SUPERHOT: Mind Control Delete feels like the full-length vision of the concept that was the original game. With more abilities, enemy types, levels, and lore, this is one of the easiest games to recommend for fans of the original.
Superhot is back with hacks and cores to master, and new enemies to shatter.
The game feels like the brainchild of students who were into debate club as much as programming.
SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE is one of a select few games that forces you to earn the right to feel like a demi-god and one that offers the best gameplay this side of its predecessor.
These slight changes improve upon an already unbelievable base, stylised and polished.
Superhot’s standalone expansion Mind Control Delete is a great example of how to achieve growth, drive your franchise forward and prevent an admittedly pretty basic concept from going stale. Before I knew I was ready for a change, Superhot Team thrust age-old video game tropes into gaming’s most unique shooter in ways only they could and, in a crazy twist, it works.
Mind Control Delete reforms Superhot's signature slow motion power fantasy into the shape of a procedurally generated roguelike. It retains the shiny spartan aesthetic, the bellicose narrative, and the most satisfying first-person shooter gimmick of the last decade, but the twists and tweaks behind its operation don't alter its basic complexion. Superhot felt euphoric when it was new. Mind Control Delete can only reheat that sensation of extravagance.
There is a lot of fun to be had here
If you've never played SUPERHOT, this is a fine place to start. The first SUPERHOT may just serve as a distraction when people approach this one, putting them off early with the ways it doesn't necessarily give them more of what they loved. If you come to this first, however, there's no preconceived notion standing between you and some of the most wonderful core gameplay I've ever engaged with.
More than four years on, SUPERHOT remains as instantly recognizable and immensely appealing a gameplay concept as it ever was on day one.
Superhot: Mind Control Delete's focus on improvisation and rogue-lite elements excellently complement its "time moves only when you move" core gameplay loop and distinctive aesthetic, making it a first-person shooter that fans of the genre shouldn't miss.
This spin on the Superhot formula includes a ton of new improvements and features. With an confusing but excellent story and trippy slow mo action, FPS fans will find much to enjoy with Superhot: Mind Control Delete.
SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE truly does live up to its own promise of MORE. The additions to gameplay take the already winning formula and expand upon it, without taking away from what made the first two entries so memorable. It’s some of the most fun I’ve had playing a game, and it’s a game that will definitely have me coming back for MORE.
if after finishing Superhot you're yearning for more of the same, Superhot: Mind Control Delete is the best available option. rogue-like features have added more depth to this game. even tough it also makes the game a bit way more different from the Superhot.

SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE may not be the shooter that you expected, but can still entertain. Its less focus on story and more focus on Roguelike elements do hurt the overall experinece though, preventing it from being as good as its predecessor.
