Oh, man. This is one of the most difficult reviews I’ve ever had to write. Not because I’m under any extra duress – of course, Mr Biffo keeps me chained up in a wheelybin round the back of Boots and regularly ‘incentivises’ me with a jolt from a cattle prod, but that’s no different to normal. No, it’s because I want to give Superhot VR a higher rating than I know it should probably get.
There are three things at play here. One is that Superhot (VR or regular) is a bit of a marmite game at the best of times. If you get it, it’s the greatest thing in the world.
Finishing a level in Superhot, and the same for Superhot VR, makes you feel like some sort of bullet-time demi-god like almost no other game can.
