Product Details:

TimeShift takes the first-person shooter to an entirely different dimension marked by erratic time and unrelenting action. Players take on the role of Colonel Michael Swift, a renowned and recently retired test pilot, who has accepted an offer from the US Government to test out two of the most significant inventions of the century. Armed with a time-control device called the Quantum Suit and a time machine called the Chronomicon, Swift is briefly sent back in time to plant an experimental probe. Upon his return to the present, a major shift has occurred. The world he left has changed beyond all recognition. And his intimate knowledge of the true time stream has made him an enemy of the state. Swift is both on the run and on a mission to set time straight once again.

Dr. Aiden Krone has made a Time Jump across the space-time continuum, a reckless act with frightening consequences. Now, a disturbing alternate reality has evolved within the bleak and rain-soaked Alpha District. Armed with the experimental Beta Suit, you alone are able to slow, stop, and reverse the flow of time. Only with this ability can you lead the uprising to victory and put an end to Krone's madness, in the highly anticipated first-person shooter TimeShift.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good :) I read the reviews but decided to try it anyways as I only got this for just a few buck's......I was really surprised.....its a pretty good game, graphics are good, sound is very realistic, control was a tiny bit slow. and the whole concept of controlling time is pretty cool, but i wish that when activated it would last a bit longer. It does get a bit repetitive though and the time control thing, basically really just comes down to slow motion, pause i havent used yet and backwards twice....i figure im almost done with the game.....but overall it is a good game and would suggest people try it for themselves :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wasn't a bad game... until no one played Timeshift was not a bad game at all. The game's story was so good and the gameplay was pretty good. The graphics was ok but no one plays multiplayer anymore making it depressing. The game was also pretty weak creating the HUD (Heads Up Display) making it easier for players to get killed but the game is good. They definentley should make a sequel.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from No Time for this Upon seeing this game's preview way back when a certain show previewed it, I was quite interested. The idea of beiing able to stop (or slow down) time in order to slip past enemies or just annihilate them seemed like an intriguing concept in a shooter. However, I quickly became bored with it. The sound, graphics, and gameplay are just lacking. Don't get me wrong, it's not on the same level as terrible games such as one that rhymes with "Luke Pukem" or overhyped to the point it was an "Epic Fail", but this is definitely not one I recommend.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yet Another Good Game Goes Under the Radar When I got this game, I first thought that it sucked because of not having any trophies (Yes, I am a trophie junkie), so then I thought that since it's only 5 bucks, why not keep it? However, the more I played it, the more exciting I found it to be. Like, u get to control time!! Who wouldn't want to have godlike powers while fighting a war? I REALLY want Timeshift 2!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great game, unique style. To start off this game is kind of hard. Its has ALOT of puzzle elements. You can control time for brief periods by slowing, reverseing, or stoping time. There are a few times where you must make split seconed descions, and chances are you'll die a few times because you can't figure out how to save yourself. In one of the early missions a "tank like thing" starts blowing up a hallway you MUST get across... took me 5 mins to realize I needed to reverse time, then stop time, and run like a monkey on crack to get to the other side (and the hall way gets blown up behind you). You can save allied forces you come across in simaler ways. EXAMPLE: You notice an allied soldier about to get executed.. you can stop time, walk up behind the enemy, steal his gun, and kill all his friends while your at it. Giving the enemy someone else to shoot at instead of just you. Don't get there in time? Simply reverse time and you'll get another shot. Each power lasts about 2-5 seconeds tops. And then you enter a cool down period. The guns are pretty useful, even the pistol kicks but, but you can also be killed in one or two shots if you arent careful, so your best ally is time manipulation. Each gun also features a "special" attack. The assault rifle has a grenade launcher, the pistol a 3 round burst, etc etc. The story was pretty good, not the best, but enough to keep you intrested.. in the weird case the gameplay doesnt. The graphics are a little dated, but not terrible.. it still looks like a ps3 game (I'd say about average for a shooter). The multiplayer is fun, but not alot of people play (not alot of people have this game considering it doesnt have the overrated "Call of Duty" tag on it). Sci-fi gamers along with Call of duty, Medal of Honor, DOOM, etc lovers will FREAK over this game... even if you don't like shooters this game could change that. Its like a violent version of portal, you have to use your wits to surrvive. TRY IT, what do you have to lose? Don't like it, return it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've heard I've heard that this game is good. I got the demo and it looks pretty good. The graphics are amazing, the guns are good and the lasting appeal.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ignore the NEGATIVE Reviews I'm into huge hardcore games like COD, Bad Company, & Crysis. This game did very well to put the time control scheme on. I'm a type of gamer that RESPECTS games with high potential, and this game is full of it and they try to use it to the max. Graphics are very well designed and the sound has its good times, but the gameplay is fantastic! It is like a part puzzle and action game, it actually reminds me a lot of Half-Life 2 because there are tons of logical thinking and puzzles involved. The movement is okay but certainly can be better, but the player can get very used to it. This game is for PATIENT gamers that respects games like these. The multiplayer is also okay but needs some more features like mics and leveling up or customizing characters or guns. I am looking forward to (if) they make a sequel. Overall great game for a good price :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good game, bad timing TimeShift unfortunately got lost among the sea of shooters released in the months before, during, and after it. For the more hardcore gamers who don't miss a release, TimeShift is a good game that presents some neat ideas that unfortunately never are fully fleshed out like they could be. The story is more or less a forgettable war-torn futuristic affair, nothing that will challenge you or stick with you for that long. The graphics are good, with some nicely detailed, crisp textures (albeit, just as many dull, washed out low-quality ones as well), and fun gore physics (though nowhere near the level of detail of Gears Of War), and the game is surprisingly colorful. The sound is average, with generic music and B-quality voice acting that get's the job done. The pacing is fine, the level design works, and the game is surprisingly challenging at times. The only thing that saves TimeShift from being a completely forgettable affair is the gameplay, which is actually pretty cool. You are given the ability to manipulate time, to stop it, slow it down, or rewind it. This is really the core of the game, and it works, providing some neat opportunities and a few interestingly smart puzzle-like situations. It's just a shame that it wasn't as fleshed out as it could have been. The campaign is a decent length of 8-10 hours, but has little incentive for replay. There is an online multiplayer component which is actually neat, speeding up the gameplay to resemble Unreal Tournament and maintaining a solid performance, but it's nothing that will have you hooked for weeks. TimeShift is a solid rental or discount purchase, but never overcomes its mediocrity to truly shine and stand out.
