We heard complaints from reviewers that TimeShift
's single-player campaign wasn't as revolutionary as it probably could have been considering its time-bending premise. But you have to hand it to the multiplayer component of the game: It really doesn't feel like anything else out there. Now, you can get a taste for yourself with a new multiplayer demo on Xbox Live.
Basically, instead of giving everyone the ability to stop and slow time (which would have been a little too insane, we'd bet) the chrono-powers have been contained to grenades that you lob at enemies that force them to slow, stop, etc. As hectic as it sounds digitally printed here, is twice as crazy on the battlefield. Just be forewarned: You're probably going to get owned by your stoner friend Rusty: He's been playing Halo
