A little old, but great
The campaign was pretty good. It was sort of hard to follow here and there, but the suit you wear is awesome. It allows you to control time as the title suggests. Sadly, you can't upgrade it or change it. The graphics are okay, but the game was made in yesteryear so I let it slide. The campaign maps are big and sprawling filled with enemies, some friendlies, and a few vehicles in some of them. Most of the missions involve going here or there and getting this or that. It's not bad, but it can get a little repetitive. Timeshift is also a little challenging. The puzzles took me a while to beat (but I guess that's why they call them puzzles). It can also be hard to figure out where to go next. The AI is okay, not smart, but not incredibly stupid. There are some boss fights which can be difficult if you don't know what to do. It can take a couple of times to learn how to beat them. The guns are diverse and range from a small machine gun to missile launchers. There's not much point talking about the online if no one plays.
I wish i could go back in time and not have bought this.
When I bought this game I was expecting so high hearing some half decent reviews about the game and saying that most of the people that have played this game they all really enjoyed it. Myself not being one of them people went home and put it in, it started off really cool, by really cool I mean running around for ten minutes without a gun with huge robots shooting at you. So I was like man this game better get way better right now. So finally you get this machine gun that looks like it is the most powerful machine gun in the world and it ends up being the worst machine gun ever. I think that a water gun could kill enemies easier. This gun is so bad that you have to load about two rounds of ammo into a person until they just fall. Now onto the time traveling, its god awful. They tell you to hit the bumper to control it but then they apparently think you'll know what you're doing on which control it is. This game is god awful, stay away I am returning this as soon as possible! Just please stay away!
TimeShift - how to pass the time
Timeshift for the 360 is one of the funnest games I've played in a long time, it gives you the flexability to kill people in any way shape or form that you want to (including taking away people's guns when they are time stopped) and that includes your own men. the weapons are very cool looking (futuristic and all that jazz) and are very spread out in terms of weapon types, it goes from your basic rocket launcher with possibly the coolest looking scope sequence ever all the way to a dual-use auto with a grenade launcher on bottom and a side dish of banana clip. And the storyline is awsome and not to mention your suit HUD is gender confused (its name is S.S.A.M. and ist a girls voice, you'll see) bassicly if you like Prince of Persia without all that climbing crap then get Timeshift cuz well .. its awsome and also feel free to kill your own guys, their look makes you want to punch them in the face , but time reverse so go nuts and don't get caught :)
This game is great. you can use powers like slow motion, rewind, and pausing time to help get rid of enemies easier. this game forces you to think using your time powers so if your stuck you either have to find somewhere to go or use your powers to overcome your current obstacle. this games graphics are great you can see the detailed features of enemies faces from a distance. the sound is decent 70 percent of your enemis sound alike but who cares about that when your killin dudes in slow motion wathcing them fly 8 feet in the air sometimes. the story is kind of hard to follow but once you've unlocked all the cutscenes and watch them in order its much easier to understand. for those kids who cant play bloody games you CAN turn the gore off in this game. so if you're thinking about buying this game i wouldnt hesitate.
Groundhog day the game
Today's games are flooded with FPS' They are everywhere! So if you have a taste for first person shooters then TimeShift is a good game to throw in the mix. The storyline is pretty linear and really doesn't have any twist or turns but is still fun none the less. I was hesitiant to purchase the game and once I did, I was pleasently surprised. One of the greatest attributes of the game is that the achievements are stackable, so if you are an achievement junky this a game to greatly increase your score with. The multiplayer aspect of the game is where i believe the games shines using its time control abilities. Your character carries with him/her time grenades that allow you to freeze or slow your opponent. Thus allowing you to dismember him/her with a rocket. You can also use a time feature where you fire back enemy ammunition with time reversal. All in all the game is pretty sweet. The only downfall is finding people to play with online, it can take a while at times.
I have been looking at this game for some time now. I read early reviews of it and they said that the frame rates were bad and slow. Well O just picked up this game and WOW!! No frame probs at all. I have it hooked up to a high speed hdmi cable and WOW!!! I love this game. Love the way you can freeze time, and slow it down. The graphics are WILD!!!! so is the sound!!! It's quite the challenge when you set the skill level in the middle... can't wait for Timeshift 2!!!! I don't understand why people gave this low scores. It is very unique with the whole time shifting thing and the weapons. Rock ON!! I love this game..... it gets my heart pumping after a bit of playing it I have to get a class of water and cool down... lol!! Timeshift 2 please!!!
Great game, who doesn't want to control time?
In this game you can control time and bend it to your will with three easy buttons. You can reverse time, to some extent, fast forward yourself, A.k.a. really fast movement or you can even just stop it and shoot a crapload of enemies in the head or take their weapons and run. There is a debate on the graphics and yes they do suck. But that does not take away from the awesomeness of this FPS, also the weapons are creative and fun to use. There is an element of creativity in this game too in the manner of how you wanna take the enemies out, my favorite is sticking an enemy whom is eating cereal (on the second level) then run in and as he explodes surprise his teammates with a hail of bullets. Also there is a lot of blood which is a good thing!
well worth your time
I have to say that this game is a very exciting shooter for the 360. It has all that you need to have a great game. The graphics are really good, sound is very realistic, the controls are easy to understand, the weapons are awesome, and last but not least you can control time. The time part of the game has got to be what sold me, i mean what is more awesome than controlling time? All in all this game has got to be one of the best shooters of this year so far. If you like Gears of War and Halo you are going to like this one. Oh and another great thing is that the game has a challenge to it unlike a lot of games that you beat in two hours, if i am gonna get a game i want it to be challenging and "Time Shift" is just that. So if you want a great shooter with just the right amount of challenge, then get this game............you wont regret it
I put off this one when halo3 was out. And just put in the back burner. when fallout etc was out. Then it was on sale 5 bucks. What the hey.
Was I stunned. It was a long game least in my view which is fine with me. I did blackops in a few days.. SO this was a needed surprise.
Graphics where very nice.Sound was tops. Play was very smooth.
No bugs.. Story line was lacking alot.Least with-in the game.Which kept me from making it a 10.This had touch’s of portal and half-life in the game(playwise).I can see why online players wouldn’t like it. In solo mode ,You have to think and do some strategy.
Im very glad I bought it to play..
Well hello there great game!!!
I like that it has adventure in it. It is a great game for any gamer at all. Really easy to understand how to use everything. The time shift ability is great for solving missions, meleeing enimies, and just doing anything your heart desires. So far I have only gone through a little bit of the game but I rate it very highly. You do need to grasp the time shift ability though in order to use the game. Best of luck to all of you gamers out there who get this game.
