Content of the article: "SUPERHOT – this game is SO much more than I expected!"
While I will not reveal the nature of the game, SUPERHOT is the most innovative shooter I have played in years! I have come to realise that mind is software and the body is disposable.
If you have SUPERHOT sitting around in your library because you bought it at some point, you need to load it up right now and experience it. You can probably buy it right now for around $10.
The spoiler free review is to simply try this game. You will probably be surprised, and the entire thing is only a couple of hours. But these couple of hours will change you.
First of all: The marketing for this game is brilliant, because it all revolves around a certain aesthetic and game mechanic. Namely the slowing of time and the use of high contrast, minimalistic graphics. But it is just SO much more. See this quote for instance:
>! SUPERHOT is the first person shooter where time moves only when you move. With its gameplay and unique, stylized graphics SUPERHOT aims to finally add something new and disruptive to the FPS genre. See the bullets crawling towards you as you carefully plan your steps and aim your gun. Enjoy the mayhem that is unleashed as you put that plan into motion. Dodge bullets. Take out your enemies. One step at a time.
I just wanted to kill some red guys. I did not expect to be part of a futuristic/dystopian horror story that makes you question where we are heading as a species. And that is really how I felt during parts of the "campaign". The whole good dog – die dog segment was deeply unsettling, and sneaking up behind yourself to perform an execution is honestly brilliant. As a person who always plays paragon in Mass Effect for instance, promising to not keep playing, but doing it anyway was difficult for me. Like, at the existential level. Rarely have a experienced such a play on emotion and fourth-wall breaking, that actually worked well. I have just started the expansion/DLC Mind Control Delete, and I have no clue what to expect. I seem to just be killing red guys again, but a story is slowly revealing itself.
Come back and discuss it (gush) when the system has set you free.
- SUPERHOT is, quite literally, the most innovative shooter I’ve played in years.

- I waited two years to play this game, spoiler free up until yesterday, and I have to say… (spoiler free)
