Superhot: Mind Control Delete, for owners of the original, is a freebie that is at least worth checking out. As for those yet to get their Superhot fix, Mind Control Delete is an unessential standalone expansion and a much less attractive proposition than the first game or its VR counterpart.

As a freebie for owners of the original, you’re not going to upset with “more” even if it’s repetitive. Otherwise, stick to the original

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Mind Control Delete throws a few wild twists into the Superhot formula, but it might be too much of a good thing.

What Mind Control Delete has done is they’ve removed the “Puzzle.” Every level is different, every single time. There is never a period where you get to rethink your approach to the same level, never a chance to try a new approach.

SUPERHOT: Mind Control Delete brings a change of pace from the original game, with more varied and unpredictably randomized challenges at the cost of the hand-crafted shooter-puzzle component of the first game. Levels are more repetitive, though, and difficulty feels unevenly balanced, resulting in a less satisfying experience.

Superhot: Mind Control Delete retains the classic's gameplay while offering plenty of fantastic twists and turns. However, that core gameplay simply doesn't cut the mustard like it did a few years ago.

SuperHot: Mind Control Delete achieves its goal of delivering more and more to series. For fans of the first version, this game offers more stages, more enemies, more weapons and of course more challenges. However, by changing the design of the levels, the game becomes boring after a while And the challenges seem similar. Next, the game tries to create balance by introducing new enemies and offering hacking ability but still, there is some major problems showing up again and again in every level. In the end, SuperHot: Mind Control Delete is a game that worth trying.

Superhot is the most innovative shooter I’ve played in years… Or have I just been programmed to say that? I can’t be sure myself. What I can say for sure is, Superhot: Mind Control Delete made me feel like a bullet-dodging, katana-wielding, Tron-esque John Wick and I loved every second of it!

Fun and addictive, SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE expands the experience of the original SUPERHOT, making it what we might call the ‘definitive version’ of a modern classic.

At the end of the day, I think that’s what SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE wants you to feel. We shouldn’t really feel relaxed while playing, but that’s what today’s society is used to. There is violence all around us, both in the virtual world and reality. We’ve become so desensitised to it all that we use virtual images of violence to escape the real ones.

SUPERHOT: MIND CONTROL DELETE brings what worked best in the original game, adding some elements that make it a more complete and sophisticated experience. With a subjective narrative, this game is visually unique and has a solid and fun gameplay base, that is involving and leave us wanting more.
