If you’re looking for something to shake up your thoughts on what can be done in the genre, then Superhot was made specifically for you. If you’re satisfied with the status quo of current-gen shooters, then you’ll likely be disappointed by the game’s length, even by today’s standards. Superhot is a nearly flawless and extensive exploration of a novel idea, but doesn’t go far enough beyond that initial thought.
I wanted to love Superhot more than I did, but its simplistic design and lack of variety really hurt it, even with its short campaign length. Still, there is nothing like it out there, and I applaud the developer for executing such a unique idea on the first try. With a bit more variety and options to tackle situations I would definitely be interested in seeing where the series goes from here. As it stands it is hard to recommend to everyone for the entry price.
A puzzle game dressed like a twisted, Cronenberg-inspired shooter, Superhot's methodical, slow-motion approach to the genre is as cerebral and deliberate as it is unhinged.
