After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

What do these ratings mean?

    I just played Timeshift on PS3.  I thought this game was great.  Yes a little repetitive, and yes the story isn’t much of a story.  But the gameplay is solid and fun.
As the review sais, the story is bland and mundane.  No deep, complicated story, just really boring. 
    The game play however is a blast.  There are various weapons, some were used to (shotgun, pistol).  But some new evolutionary ones as well, such as a machine gun that fires balls of flames or my favorite, the crossbow that shoots explosives that detonates 1 second after impact. It’s so great to see the explosive attach to the baddies leg, arm, chest, then you see them freak out and attempt to take it off, but before they can you see them explode into 325 little bits. 
    Also, there are several little mini puzzles.  Really not complicated, but puzzles in a FPS is always welcome.
    The save system is great.  Not only do you save manually at any time, but it automatically saves periodically during the levels.  So that helps not redo the same sequences all the time.    
    Graphically the game was awesome, using the power of the PS3 and Xbox proved to enhance the games reality.  Seeing the bad guys struggle to their feet after being shot in the leg was great, and seeing them crawl back to their weapon to shoot you while still on the floor made the game more believable.  I imagine that the PS3's full potential still has to be unlocked, so this game is just the beginning.

    Because nothing was revolutionary I cannot give timeshift a grade in the  *A*  range.  However, this game easily deserves the next best thing…a B+.  This game is way more of a good game then a bad one.
