Time shift is a game you might pick up cheap to kill time before the next big game comes out, even so its worth a play. Its unique gameplay allows you to alter time to complete your goals, you can pause time and rewind it slightly making this game in part a bit of a puzzle game.
Its a first person shooter so you get the usual range of weapons but no matter what you use the time powers make the game really easy. There are a few driving bits but you can only drive quad-bikes down a predetermined path so I thought that was pointless. You will also get a mission where you need to shoot enemies from a blimp but with the powers its easy. There will be a few bits where you need to think what to do and using the powers play heavily here.
Graphics were good but not the best and the story was pretty vacant for the most part as it seem that you just shot a whole bunch of guys.
I may have said easy alot but the game is still fun to play through but not more than once.
I recomend it if you just want a cheap game to play in a short time or for achivements. It does play online where you use time grenades etc to gain advantage over your enemy but I found it got boring as once you perfect a technique you just do the same ting a lot.
Timeshift is a game with a very interesting plot; a scientist has gone nuts and stolen an outfit that allows him to travel through time. In the future, he has become a Hitler-esque tyrant, and you play a scientist who has jumped into the other prototype suit to jump through time and try to stop him. It is an FPS with a few nice ideas, but ultimately it just falls flat.
The suit allows you to alter the fabric of time, making firefights a lot easier than they should be. Also, you can manipulate the environments, such as running across water and other flimsy objects due to being able to slow down time and therefore your effect on the world's physics. It is very reminiscent of Prince of Persia, but you can't just rewind every time you die, and it is more to use on the world around you.
However, outside of this feature there's not much to shout home about. The execution and level design is rudimentary, and the weapons are very routine; you've got light pistols, then machine guns, then rocket launchers and sniper rifles etc. Visually, the game is alright, but nothing above-average. It has a few good textures, but the character models are a bit clunky, and I don't think the way they run looks right. Some of the dialogue, though, is downright inane, but it at least makes the game funnier than it otherwise would have been.
Timeshift has one clever feature, but by and large is just too routine for my liking. It doesn't have its own identity and tries to get by on a feature that has been better executed in far superior games. I wouldn't bother with this one if I were you.
