Excerpt: The first Dead Rising was a divisive game. Either you loved the time-based missions, unforgiving save system, and brutal difficulty which required multiple restarts as you leveled up Mr. Frank West, or you just hated everything about it. I am in the camp of loving the first game and I hold it in high regard as an important contribution to the gaming space.
Excerpt: Toki Tori was originally released in 2001 on the dying Game Boy Color system. While it didn’t see much success on the platform, mostly due to the growing popularity of the Game Boy Advance, it was a fun little platformer with unique charm, and those who played it seemed to really enjoy it.
Summary: TimeShift is an FPS in which players control time to complete missions and defeat foes. The game will leverage first-of-its-kind gameplay abilities and functionality, and the latest graphics technology to create a unique action game experience.
Excerpt: This alterna-30s features a cool mix of old-but-new looking technology – complete with giant walking spiders, zeppelins with mounted laser guns, and urban environments speckled with constantly roving searchlights.
Excerpt: Lets face it; this month could easily be considered the most competitive time to release an FPS on the PC. Games like Unreal Tournament 3, Gears of War, Crysis, and Call of Duty 4 were all set to come out, and amongst the pack remains one less known title. TimeShift, which has seen development changes and delays, finally decided to release itself amongst all the chaos. Even so, the game has a unique charm about it that you wont want to miss.
Conclusion: THE VERDICT: The time powers are pretty pointless, the puzzles are broken owing to the fact they're solved for you, it plays like a five-year-old FPS and the multiplayer is obsolete already. But I don't hate you, TimeShift. And I don't know why. You're not worth my hard-earned (ho ho!) dollah, but I don't want to ignore you. Curse you brain, for thinking in this way.
