A review for people going back to play old and cheap ps3 games

Summary: I am going to be clear here. Do not pay more than $5 for this game. While within its release window it may have been okay to drop some more cash on it, nowadays when compared to contemporary shooters, it is certainly not worth it. It is not a bad game. Its time mechanics work, and the gunplay-while not perfect-is solid. Where this game falls apart is in its design. The maps are dull and boring, the visual design is just grey, black, and blue.
Summary: I got Timeshift for only $13 so I shouldn't complain too much. In truth its a rather good game, especially given its price. However I really wish the time powers lasted longer, especially the freeze time ability. 5 seconds is too damn stingy! Being able to upgrade the time powers so that they lasted longer would have made this game so much better. And would it have killed them to put a cheat or 2 in there for unlimited use?!?
Summary: This game is pretty good if you can find it for a good price. I got a great deal on mine. Don't expect anything amazing in terms of graphics or realism, as this is one of the earlier games for the Playstation3. The weapons are not great either really. However, it's still fun to play every once in a while.

Summary: Occasionally you'll play a game with a concept that's so good that you just have to wonder why no one had ever thought of it before. Oftentimes, said concept becomes wasted on otherwise lackluster game design, and they you have to wonder how it went so horribly wrong. While Timeshift isn't necessarily horrible, it takes a great "time manipulation" gameplay mechanic (oh no, a grenade..
Summary: Here we go, another kinda-futuristic shooter. That's not bad, because I love futuristic shooters, but Timeshift is basically run-of-the-mill. It definitely has its strong points. You can save anywhere (why doesn't everyone do this?????), there's no frame rate problems, graphics and enemy AI are very nice, and the craft design is especially good. I love the future-past blimps.

Summary: A madman betrays his fellow scientists and steals a time-jumping super suit, leaving a timed explosive in his wake. In a last-ditch effort to save himself, one researcher jumps into the other prototype suit that they have and chases after him. What he finds is a world where the use of future technology has allowed said madman to become an unstoppable fascist dictator.
Summary: Well, after playing this game for a few hours, I have mixed feelings about the game. First, I must say, I tend to like it a bit better than Resistance: Fall Of Man, mainly because it's a bit different with the overall features. You wear this nifty Time-Shifting type of suit that can enable you to manipulate time. Which, is a really cool idea, and it can be quite fun blasting bad guys when you're using these features. A LOT OF FUN!
