Conclusion: All in all Timeshift is a well rounded package and offers a lengthy single player campaign and lots of hours over Xbox Live if multiplayer is your type of thing. Sadly most of you will pick it up next spring when the next games drought is bestowed upon from those great publishers in the sky and by then it will probably have lost some of its initial impact. In fact, it already had as I played it.
Excerpt: Colonel Michael Swift Colonel Michael Swift (recently retired) has a unique combination of brains and brawn that have helped him to rapidly rise to the top ranks of the Air Force. An all-state running back in high school, Swift passed up on athletic scholarships from some of the country's best universities to join the Air Force Academy where he majored in military strategic studies.
Excerpt: If you were to hop in a time machine (if such a thing existed of course, which sadly it doesn’t) and travelled to a particular point in time, you would most likely see that TimeShift was set to be released as a last generation title and published by the ailing Atari. The game was then transformed into a shiny new generation offering, and due to their dire financial situation, Atari passed it along to Sierra who saw potential in its time control mechanics, and then did...
Conclusion: While it’s not the best-looking game we’ve seen this year, TimeShift sports some very nice visuals. The water effects are very nice (this is especially important since it rains a lot in this alternate reality), and most of the environments are beautifully rendered. Characters move and react realistically, particularly when you pump a few bullets into them.
Conclusion: Fun in short controlled bursts, but far too straightforward and repetitive to stand up to long, involved periods of play. If you liked Resistance, you’ll probably enjoy TimeShift, but if Half-Life 2 is more your bag, then maybe not.
Conclusion: The multiplayer offers at least half a dozen different game modes and 14 maps to play on. There is dlc which adds more fun to play on(if only there was enough people to play with though). The game online offers the same functions as in singleplayer and the same weapons, but no vehicles. There is nothing more to say, and due to it been unpopular, it deserves 3 stars.
Conclusion: It's essentially a standard first-person shooter with a gimmick, but that doesn't mean it isn't fun. Even after the novelty wears off, it's still just as exciting as other first-person shooters.
