Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Very fun
Pro Control is super intuitive
Being that the users view is controllable with their head, which frees up both hands to control the dual wielded pistols makes for a very intuitive and natural way to play a first person shooter. No longer do you have to have your guns in sight in order to shoot in the direction that you would like.
Pro Awesome time-based mechanic
In Superhot time only goes forward when you move. This turns the gameplay into something closer to a puzzle game as you need to be very calculated with every move you make.
Pro Minimalistic yet beneficial art style
The art style in the game is very cool and minimalistic while actually serving to make the game easier to understand and play. The gameplay in Superhot relies on you being able to react properly to your environment, and the art choices make it really easy to understand what is going on around you.
Pro Lets you roleplay matrix-like battles
The coolest thing about this mechanic is it essentially lets you role play matrix-like battles with you dodging bullets, slicing bullets out of mid-air with a katana and an assortment of other badass things to do.
Con Very little depth
There is not much to do in the game other than shoot robots, it give a Space Invaders type feel, but in VR. This may change in the future since this is an early access game, but currently the game is pretty shallow.
Con Short story mode
Although there are plenty of other modes with a lot of variety, the story mode can typically be beaten in around 2 hours.
