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 9 out of 10 by Raptor2199 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 :)

Timeshift is an ok game. It was one of the first games to go out for playstation 3 so the graphics are normal but the storyline is very good. It does have some challanges and it is a good fps game. The total playtime of the games is maybey 5-6 hours ONLY the campaing mode. The online mode is fun but if you play it a lot you start to get borde. Obouisly it isnt like COD4 but it is surley a good game. The controls are somewhat unconfortables but you can get used to it and you have a short but cool variations and list of weapons you can use. As i said the graphics arent that great...but the blood is showen pretty cool not too gorey but cool. It is similar to prince of persia in a way because you can control time you can slow it, freez it, reverse it or the contrary fasfower it. So nice game and i do recomend it if you like fps games and an good online game.

I liked Time Shift. I thought it was a very cool game. It's not a Call of Duty or a Resistance but still a very cool game. I hope they come out with a Time Shift 2 and make it even better. It would be cool to see it as squad based, to time shift or freeze time as a unit would be cool. It kind of reminded me of the first Matrix game when you would hit the focus button to fight or shoot. At first people shied me away from this game and some of the reviews turned me away from buying this game. So I downloaded the demo and I actually liked it. So I went to GameStop near my house and asked if they had a used copy and they did so I bought it. Not a bad deal for $*****. If you like first person shooters I guarantee you will like this game. If you don't want to spend the $***** for a new copy, see if they have it used, you won't be disappointed.
Rated 10 out of 10 by finally a person who is right!!! good game
I had a lot of fun playing this game at first but then it got really repetitive. The game is really fun but there's not much of a difference between the missions. A lot of the game is stopping time, slowing time, reversing time, and fast forwarding time to get through secret passages hallways full of lasers ect. The other part of the game is the shooter which is pretty fun but 1- all the guys look the same 2- there's only like 8 guns throughout the whole game. Also when you get to the mountains you can ride ATVs and the controls on the ATVs isn't that great. I mean you can go fast and all but the steering could use some work. The sniping worked really well. The other thing i really like about this game was there was always a way to work stealth and strategy into the game. Over all I would DEFINITELY recommend this game.

I think every informed ps3 player knows the dread of this game. When you look at the cover it seems cool, but when you get to playing it just gets boring. For one, the story line is confusing and not so great. When you get to multi there aren't any servers to join. However I found the game to be challenging. I died a lot but I didn't really care to try again because I didn't really feel like it was even worth the challenge. The graphics aren't so great either. Their pretty low grade. The controls are like an average shooter until you get to time shifting and then you just get confused. The sound is real bad I even had my HDMI cables hooked up and it didn't make a difference. Over all, this game doesn't satisfy me at all and I would probably try to keep it away from my friends.

This game is INSANE!!! totally awesome you have to buy it! I don't quite understand the story line, I am only half way done with it, but I think you learn as you go. this game has an amazing challenge to it, you can put it on easy, skilled or elite. Easy really isn't extremely e-z so if you don't like challenges don't buy it. very good graphics, the sound isn't the greatest, a little overdone, kind of gory, but they did a really good job on it, if you just ate, and you are kind of sensitive, I would recommend turning the gore off. The Multiplayer is really fun also. you can play on 14 maps with up to 16 dudes! you can also pick between like 50 guy (or something like that) to play on multiplayer, and change you color to just about anything! yah, so totally buy it!
Rated 3 out of 10 by Koptikz Time Shift To The 90's
This game is like an old version of doom. It would have been a best seller in the 90's. The days of sliding up ladders and dropping through holes are over. In todays games, we actually see and feel like we are climbing up the latter not siding up and down it. The graphic are very average. I felt like I was playing the game on a Ps2 and a half. The best thing about this game is the time shift feature but it is not enough to keep you into the game for long. I did have a little bit of fun mastering the time shift suit but once you have destroyed your enemy in every way you can think of, the game is pretty much over. I was bored with the game before I could reach the end. My advice, rent the game. The time shift feature will keep you interest for about a night...

idk guys....the time difference between the launch of the 360 version and the PS3 version doesn't mean that they're updating the graphics for the PS3 version. all it means is that they're needing the extra time to get the engine to work on the PS3, because at sony the programmers are monkeys and they don't understand that if they made they're OS easyier to program for they would get a lot more games coming out more often. At this point in time i'm gonna hand it to microsoft, cuz on every game thats multi-platform Microsoft has several months of exclusive release. Idk about you guys but i want my game now, not 3 months after it's been released.
Rated 5 out of 10 by mike 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.
