For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

What do these ratings mean?

The Good: TimeShifting is cool, cool weapons, decent graphics

The Bad: TimeShifting powers are poorly used, mediocre game play, stupid story that goes nowhere fast, bland multiplayer, kind of short

I had high expectations for this game, and I was quickly let down. When you first enter the game you in a war-torn city trying to help rebels lead a resistance against a growing power (think Half-Life 2). You are a physicist who enters into a TimeShifting suit to stop the secret facility from blowing up, but winds up in a time paradox where the man trying to blow the facility up...is now in charge of the entire world. You have to help lead a resistance to stop this man. On to the TimeShifting, it's not as exciting as you think. You can stop, slow down, and reverse time to get an advantage over the enemy, solve simply stupid puzzles, and so on. You can stop time and grab a weapon out of an enemies hand and shoot them with it. This is pretty fun at first but gets old quickly.
            The stupid puzzles are extremely annoying. Try slowing down time to get away from a bomb that only has 2 seconds on the timer. Try pulling a lever and slowing down time to quickly get on before it moves away...very very dull indeed. The weapons are pretty cool such as a machine gun that sets enemies on fire with a flamethrower attached to the bottom, a crossbow that sticks to enemies and blows them up, you even have a cool self guided rocket launcher (think Half-Life 2...again). While this is just OK it's good for a weekend rental (coming in at 8 hours completion time).
