The Matrix movie, invented Bullet Time. Max Payne made bullet time fun. Superhot, perfected it. By the time Superhot was released, there were a ton of games that used bullet time gameplay. It was beginning to get stale and repetitive, but then SUPERHOT Team gave us a game that was nothing but bullet time.
If you know what you are doing, every level could be completed in minutes. For new comers however, you have to rely of the mechanics this game was built upon and it stretches out the time to complete considerably. But what is the whole point of Bullet Time? It’s to make you feel like a bad ass, as you are popping off all the enemies one by one is the most stylish way.
If you want to get good at this game you will reply it over and over until you no longer need to rely of the bullet time but your own instincts to progress. That is what true innovation of gameplay is all about. Taking a known concept but making it feel fresh and enjoyable.
