Superhot Is a Shooter Where Time Moves Only When You Do

1 minute read

“Step or pivot and everything spools up, like pushing ‘play’ on an old-school tape recorder,” I wrote in my review. Or “stand still and time slows dramatically, swords and swarms of shotgun pellets creeping toward you like snails through molasses. Remember ‘bullet time’ from The Matrix? This is like that, but more.”
