Summary: I didn't know what to expect with this game but since it's cheap I decided to give it a try. Having played just about all the top shooters, this one falls short of the standards of most I have played. Controls are ok, visuals are solid, but there is no intro to the story at all, so you have no idea what is going on. Plus, the aiming reticule/zooming is very limited.
It's basically a really crappy extended demo for the real game (the hopeful sequel).

Summary: I got this as a "whatever game" a few cheap thrills and a mediocre game. It's far more than that, however, the games is set at a more difficult level thus almost forcing you to use your time powers to make things even. A brilliant idea and I hope they come out with a second. I do not like how there are a vast amount of gliches, bugs, etc and the graphics are shoddy at best.
Summary: I was waiting for HAZE and picked up Time Shift expecting another Resistance Fall of Man style shooter. I was wrong. The Controls are bad, the Time Shifting is great, but they make you use to get past lame obsticles. The game does have great graphics, but it lost in the horrible game play with the screen lock ups and glitchs and poor frame rate.
Pros: Time as a weapon
Cons: Glitchs all over this game and screen lock ups
Summary: 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.
Summary: 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.
Summary: Please save your time and most important money on this HORRIBLE GAME. The reason I was stuck into buying this game is because I confused this game with Time Splitters, I bought this game as soon as I noticed it in GameStop....big mistake the game is horriblely medicore. The online DID NOT WORK AT ALL. Save your money and just wait for Haze.
Summary: Yet another boring FPS... I think that Resistance is a little better than this game but, I'm still waiting for something a little more fast paced like Unreal Tournament 3, which I plan on getting this week. This game is a better rental than a buy.. The whole time manipulation is fun for the first level, and then Timeshift just becomes another typical console FPS..
Summary: This game is forgettable. The story isn't told well. It uses flashes of memories that aren't stimulating or involving because they only last a few seconds. My character's temporal powers aren't used much. There were a few moments I actually used it, to stop the current of electricity, to rewind a path that was blown away, etc. They could have done so much more with his powers, but instead they stopped at the minimum than the maximum.
