Kill some time with SUPERHOT on Xbox One next week
SUPERHOT, the time-shifting shooter that blasted its way onto the PC earlier this year, will be making its way to the Xbox One on May 3rd.
The game blurs the lines between the puzzle and FPS genres due to its unique mechanic where time only moves when the player does. Each showdown becomes a puzzle in and of itself as players sidestep bullets, try to determine where their own shots will land, and dance a slow-motion dance of death in the game’s single player story and grueling Challenge Modes.
We loved the time we spent with the PC version of the game when we reviewed it earlier this year saying, “When all is said and done, SUPERHOT stands as one of the most unique and innovative shooters I’ve had the pleasure of playing in quite some time. The game’s blend of cerebral shooting mechanics and stylized presentation combine to form an experience that is nothing short of hypnotic. While I wish the story mode was a bit longer, the wealth of challenging modes that unlock after clearing the main campaign more than make up for the main story’s brevity. Those looking for the next Halo or Call of Duty may be put off by SUPERHOT’s measured and methodical approach to gunplay, but players looking for an FPS that’s unlike anything else on the market will find that SUPERHOT offers one of the most sublimely surreal shooters out there.”
