For the very first Video Game Friday, we’ll take a look at a game recently released to the PlayStation called “SuperHOT!”

The game has been out since February of this year, but it was released for PlayStation July 21st of this year. I had the opportunity to play the game over the last week and I was pleasantly surprised.
SuperHOT is a first person shooter and time only moves when you do. The faster you move, the faster time moves. I felt like Jason Bourne or Neo from the Matrix while playing. You can punch, throw objects, and shoot red figures whom shatter upon killing them. There is a story mode, which is unfortunately short, but I thought it was enjoyable. They also have challenge mode and endless mode upon completing the game.
The positives with this game is that I thought it was a unique idea compared to the other games currently released. Also, SuperHOT is cheap compared to other standard games so I felt like I got my money’s worth. I purchased the game on a promotion for $20 USD, but it’s available in the PS store for $24.99 for either VR or standard, or you can purchase both VR and standard in a bundle for $39.99. I can see an issue with the length of story mode, perhaps the lack of other modes and multiplayer, but I don’t feel like these three things bring down the game by any means.

It’s a fun game and it would be interesting to see if a second one is made to include multiplayer/co-op and more weapons. Unfortunately I did not have the opportunity to play the game in VR, but I’m sure it’s an even more enjoyable experience than playing with a handheld controller.
Final score: 7/10
