Video Review


'SUPERHOT' has a minimalistic presentation. All of the character models are faceless crystalline figures - the bad ones are red, and the player character is black. Environments are white and all weapons and throwables are black. Actually, it kind of looks like the opening credits scene of 'Casino Royale', complete with models that crinkle and explode into shards when struck. The physics are excellent and as realistic as a heavily slo-mo shooter will allow.

Audio Review


The game is a cacophony of firearm reports, broken glass, and the discordant, digitized static that characterizes the "System", whatever that may be. There is little music or voice acting - like the visuals, the soundscape is spartan, though for a game like 'SUPERHOT', that only adds to the experience.

Final Thoughts

'SUPERHOT' is a very accessible arcade game with highly repeatable shooting shenanigans. I can’t quite decide if the storyline is trying to be edgy or funny, but it doesn’t really work on either level. Thankfully, much of it can be safely ignored in favor of the awesome physics-based gunplay.
