Quite simply, this is a fantastic FPS that any fan of sci-fi FPS games should enjoy quite a bit. The game's primary draw is its "time" functionality, which makes use of not only slow motion (see: F.E.A.R.), but "pause" and "rewind" to great effect (you'll see the advantage of "pause" almost immediately, as enemies are paralyzed/rendered defenseless [allowing you to defeat them without their awareness]), and it's truly a blast to play (aside from this, it's an above-average shooter that plays and runs well). Some key points and notes are below:

-Ignore "driver" message you'll see at startup...just hit "play" and wait for the game to run (may take ten seconds or longer [tell Windows to "wait"])...do not "update" anything, if prompted
-3.25 GB file size (despite eight-hour-plus length)
-light GPU requirements (1080/60 can be had with a modern-day $100 GPU, without issue [note that the game does not natively support AA--see below)
-the game is gorgeous, in spite of file size and GPU requirement (especially if you force 32X CSAA [or higher]--see below)--it looks like it needs 10x more GPU than it does
-no 360 controller support (you'll need XPadder, etc.)
-CSAA can be forced through Nvidia Inspector using a compatibility code [search for "guru3d timeshift compatibility;" choose "Nvidia AA Guide"]; no native AA support (strangely)
-set Windows to 7.1; otherwise, you'll get only 2.0 sound (even if you have a 5.1 setup..."5.1" doesn't work, for some reason)
-somewhat derivative, but fun (most games are derivative of another; what matters is that the game does what it does *well*, and this one succeeds); an hour or so of play pre-"time functionality" is necessary, but worth sticking out

Well worth the sale price (and much more), this game was rated quite unfairly by critics at the time of its release (simply because it's derivative). If you love F.E.A.R. (my favorite FPS), Halo, Half-Life 2, etc., you'll love this game as well. Highly recommended!

Was able to download immediately, no problems or delays. The game plays without a hitch and I'm enjoying it very much.

Background: I have played and beaten this game in both pc and ps3.
Overall: TimeShift has a great story line with some interesting and original features such as being able to control time. Graphics in pc on highest setting do not impress what-so-ever but the gameplay is still great. It has very linear play style and the AI is far from perfect but the plot is very unique and I had a blast playing though this game.

Pretty good FPS. A bit simple, but the time mechanics are very interesting. If you're not expecting some award winning GOTY game, then you should check this out.

Its okay. Of course this game is pretty dated and did not age well. I like the time shift and how you can manipulate things, but I feel this game was wasted potential. Still fun, but only get it when it drops to $5. Singularity is much better.

No controller support, I loved this game on the PS3 when it first came out, became a part of the PC gaming master race so I thought I'd pick this up, no controller support=no fun, no nostalgia for me.
