One of the reasons I started playing this was that I read choices can be made in the game that effect the story. Some of my favourite games of late have been ones that allow the gamer to change the narrative and while that selling point isn't incorrect, the choices aren't that interesting, there are only four-after each act-and they come from the perspective of the villain, making them less meaningful. The story did lose me at times. I got the basics but I feel I missed parts, but that tends to happen with time travel tales. The levels are broken up by a live action episode with strong production values, acting and likeness to the graphical versions of the actors and settings.
To the gameplay - This is a third person shooter with a bit of platforming and some slight puzzling. The puzzling is made fairly easy due to the protagonist's (Jack Joyce) time shifting abilities but you occasionally need to work out how to get to a certain height, get into a building, etc. The cover system isn't perfect but the shooting is satisfying and the shootouts are broken up well unlike some games where one can go on forever. The developers weren't stingy, Jack's abilities regenerate quickly after use and ammo is generally always plentiful. The difficult is heightened by a fair margin at the final boss, but once you work out a strategy it's more than doable. A fun TPS with some originality (although it does remind me of TimeShift) that you'll want to finish within a few sittings.
