Critical Reception

Timeshift currently holds a score of 70 for PS3 and X360 versions and 71 for its PC version on Metacritc. Critics complained mainly of the game's lack of challenge, the short length, and occasionally wonky frame rate. While the consensus is that the game handles the time manipulation abilities well, it just didn't have enough new, innovative gameplay mechanics to be considered anything more than "average" or "vaguely enjoyable".

TimeShift requires 5.8GB of space to install on an Xbox 360 HDD.


TimeShift released in 2007 before Wolfenstein 2009, and they weirdly look alike. Both of them share the same atmosphere, and the level design of chapters, even the idea of manipulating time ability exactly the same, also the style look of an enemy and their ability, only the difference is the paint, and story.
