I also enjoyed TimeShift. I finished it up last night and thought is was overall a very well done game. It does leave a little to be desired in regard to the backstory and such, but the gameplay is great. Plus it was cool hearing Greg Grunberg from Heroes voice the game. Overall I gave it an 8.5 on my personal scale.

Anyone else get a BSOD nv4_disp.dll infinite loop crash as it is loading with any driver except 169.04 Beta (or other 169.xx that I have not tried)? Even the latest official driver crashes it.

What is up with that? I don't want to use some beta driver, and what major change is in those drivers that fixes the crash? Is it a bug in all the older nvidia drivers that got fixed or a bug in the game that got "worked around" in the 169.04's?

Yep, playing through it right now. I'm having fun with it. It looks great and has fun gun fights. It takes everything good done with F.E.A.R and improves on it a bunch.

So people who enjoy the game aren't true gamers? WTF. It's a solid game and it's fun. Liking it doesn't make one a false gamer.

Very enjoyable game I must say. Loved the weapons, although I admit that the crosbow was a tad overpowered at times. Bit linear, yes, but nothing too bad for my taste.

As many have mentioned, the main con here is the lack of a proper storyline to back it up. At first I was really excited to learn what it was that had happened which led to this alternate reality thingamagig, but in the final battle has to be the most pathetic "boss fight" I have ever experienced.

*SPOILERS*
You just take out the turret and out comes to dude crawling after the uber mech spider collapses? Come on! There could've at least been a level inside the damn robot where you had to blow up the core or something like that. Just off the top of my head I can think of waaay better ways for the final fight.
Cut scenes were poor and randomly scattered. They should've used them to enhance the story, not just show me running to an elevator and getting into a stupid glider dropship. Meh.

There is one last thing I don't understand: the final final cutscene. Why did the suit detect a paradox and jump away? I don't get it. Someone please explain this to me. As far as I can put it together, the reason the dude jumps in time is to save the lady friend. Does it mean that now that she's saved he never did the time jump?

Oh yeah, and being bossed around like an ordinary soldier pissed me off.

Graphics are surprisingly nice, but the gameplay is so linear that it gets boring fast. I wish there was more freedom to screw around with the time manipulation.

Its an extremely well done game. The only two points I find against it are the extremely linear gameplay and long loading times. Other than that coming from Saber Interactive it is an excellent attempt. Compare it to other games that are extremely linear like say FEAR (with its slow-mo whoring) or Half Life 2 games with extremely linear gameplay and same guns since forever.

Guns are excellent and timeshifting powers actually work where you can't ***** them to no end. You actually think that you could use time powers better when you die. On the other hand you may make an argument that its same old, I would say so is Gears of War or any other game out now (except possibly crysis and bioshock).

Its not a AAA game but its worth 8/10 unlike the crap ratings gamespot gave it and it is far far superior to Jericho, FEAR Expansion and/or Painkiller crap.
