What Kyle means is that rewinding, slowing or stopping time for short periods affects everyone EXCEPT you… after all, you are the guy inside the time travelling suit… no point slowing down time if you slow down too as you’d not notice any difference. So that’s Time Shift’s big hook… you can control time in small bursts. Now, at first glance, that doesn’t exactly sound exciting does it? But if you just think for a moment what you could do if you knew everything that was going to happen ten seconds before it happened, imagine what you could do then. Kyle has, and it’s been so well implemented into Time Shift that it’s not juts a frilly extra on the gameplay… the gameplay revolves around it.

If the gameplay actually hinges on this, and it's not just an "oops" button like in PoP, this could be an awsome game.

From what we saw at E3, the time control in Timeshift is far deeper then PoPs. I don't even think you can use it if you die to rewind prior to your death.
