Sam Young says, "SUPERHOT is a textbook example of a game that does one thing—but does that one thing incredibly well. Upon loading into the first level, you will immediately notice two things. First, the man about a foot away from you that has just had his face blown off. Second, and far more importantly, the big, all-caps text flashing on-screen that reads “TIME MOVES ONLY WHEN YOU MOVE”. This none-too-subtle hint perfectly explains the unique premise of SUPERHOT, and does so just in time for you to step out of the path of the bullets already making their way toward you. From there, level after level of increasingly complicated scenarios are thrown at you, and you are forced to either master SUPERHOT’s time-bending hooks or die trying. Actually, scratch that. You’re going to die a bunch no matter what."
