All shooter fans will love this
Time-shift is an exotic game that has a good feeling and interesting missions. The game does have the same settings for every mission, but each mission, besides the environments, is different and unique. In the game you have the power to go back in time, stop time, and slow down time. The time controlling feature gives you a decent advantage over your enemies. When you stop time, you can steal an enemies' gun and leave him defenseless. Your time powers are limited so it's very hard to use your time powers to the fullest. The game has a good amount of challenge. But when time starts when you are in front of an enemy soldier, it can get annoying as hell. The graphics are amazing for such an old game. It came out around the time of Halo 3 and it has better graphics than halo 3. Of course halo 3 is better in every way except the graphics. So overall, I liked time-shift alot and highly recommend it for shooter fans, action fans, or adventure fans. And if you just want a fun game, buy time-shift.
Sierra looks like they made a F.E.A.R look-a-like. I know what people will say from this statement that I'm crazy because it's a totally different game. But in F.E.A.R you shoot in slow motion and all of this seems too much like it. I think being able to freeze your enemy will make the game repetitive. Maybe not. I mean even the environments kind of look alike, I mean I know it won't be even close to F.E.A.R with a lot of darkness, but look at the outside and the buildings. Well say what you want, but I will give it a try with a rental. I'm not sure about a purchase because I already bought Gears of War, Bioshock, the Orange Box, and Halo 3. I believe these are the best games for the system now and for the future. Not even Call of Duty 4 and Assassin's Creed will come close. I also guarantee Bioshock being the game of the year. Sorry Timeshift you won't even come close.
Timeshift is an awesome game that focus's on you, a scientist with a mysterious and hidden past. You were recruited by Dr. Krone, a prestigious and renowned scientist, and along with other scientists you research quantum physics. After two working time travel suits are made, Krone takes a suit and betrays the team, blows up the research facility killing everyone, but you, who put on the other suit before the explosion. You travel back in time to find your betrayer. The game starts here, with you joining a group of rebels to take down Krone. The game is incredibly awesome, the graphics and responses are great. However, the difficulty is questionable. Most of the time, you can't figure out where you need to go, even with a mini map at the top of the screen. All in all it's a good game, but the difficulty is a little questionable.
This game was unfortunetly overlooked by a lot of gamers when it first came out, including myself, i picked it up one day not expecting anything special and when I played the storyline for a few hours it was good, not amazing but good, it was very creative and looked decent. I'm not saying the game is bad or mediocre, but I do wish this game got more recognition than what little it got. The controls are great, which I thought were going to be a big problem since there is so much you can do. They were fluent and I never had to stop and remember what buttons did what. I don't love this game, but I do like it a lot, I would definatly recommend this game to my friends who are currently playing MW2. The game is really creative and worked with the idea well. I would definatly recommend this game to any hardcore gamer.
This game is impresively fun!
I bought this game on sale just hoping that it would be fun and worth the money! I was very Impressed!! This game has absolutely no story, but you dont need one when you are stoping time, and then running around your enemy and blowing them to bits and watching them fly in slow motion!!!! This game reminds me much of Gears of War without the gut wrenching blood and sawing people in half_ehh! this game delivers everything great except for that there is no story. This game is for those of you who want to pick up a quick game for cheap. This is totally worth the money! Don't get me wrong this is no halo or anything like that, but this is withuot a doubt a great game!I do wish that there was a multiplayer feature besides system link and xbox live but I can deal. pick up this game you wont be sorry!
i just played the demo and so far from what i played i recomand this game to any fps fan. Graphics are exactly what you would expect from the 360. enemy ai is on par with other top tier fps games. and the ability to m.t (minipulate time) is actully useful and fun. but the game still requires fps skill to progress unlike other m.t games such as prince of persia where the game almost forces you to use on every obsticle course and is almost useless in combat. In timeshift you still have to rely on skill to defeat waves of enemies wheather you use m.t or not. which is why i say the game offers a good balence of this ability. im definitly picking up a copy. oh and for you younger gamers tell mom and dad you can turn the blood and gore off in the option menu.
As soon as i signed on to xbox live yesterday after being out of town for a couple of days and i checked the marketplace i was very pleased to see the video for this game. Along with many other people I heard a couple of things about this game last year, and paid no attention but obviously there has been a huge change. I of course watched the video and was WOWED. This game looks just AWSEOME. It seems the player will have a huge amount of control and be able to do things never imaginable to do in any other games, as of course the player can slow down or even change time to escpae from or destroy his enemy targets. And as all gamers, hardcore or not know... POWER IS GOOD. Looks to be a pretty awseome game, can't wait DaRks all da way
Not Bad....Not bad at all
not a bad game at all , it was pretty fun if i had to compare it to something i compare it to Half Life 2 and the Fear series, i felt like a Time traveling Gorden Freeman, and it felt as if lots of elements of Timeshift were influenced by Half Life 2, also they whole aspect of slowing down time feel like Fear . All that being said it was fun its one of those games that was over looked due to the release date , it had to compete with CoD 4 Orange Box, And Halo 3 all these were released at the same time so thats why Timeshift had been over looked , its oonly 5 bucks and if you wants some mindless fun , go ahead and check it out, defenatley under rated... and the graphics arent bad either, a bit dated but still very clean.
I was hesitant to preorder this until i played the demo on 360 and i have to say this game i going to be spectacular. From the small ammount i was able to play i got a true 100% sense that this is going to be one of the best games to ever be made. The way your suit talks to you waring you of danger and the ability to stop, rewind, slowmotion, or fast forward is very very cool. The AI so far was insane, the weapons were cool and the graphics 9/10. I have a feeling that this game will be the true halo rival, i was just flat out impressed and ran to preorder it the same day i played the demo. I cannot wait for this to release. I just hope they can get the online done properly, clans etc.... As of this date i give this 5/5.
Better than I thought
I thought this gane was going to be a joke. Anything in development that long could not be good. It seems like they changed their minds several times on what the game could/should be like. That to me, signifies a lack of commitment on a shared vision. So, I hesitantly downloaded and played the demo. I was completely wrong. The demo played great and is one of the few I played through severla times. The replayability was what hooked me. The graphics are great. most importantly, the game is fun. Take a look at chronicles of Timeshift web videos on some of the development challenges to get a better idea of what it takes to make a game. Very interesting. Download the demo, you won't be disappointed.
