In closing, this game is better than average break from the norm, with quite a few unique touches that make it worthwhile. The two that do it for me are the Tommy Gun and the fact that you get the opportunity to waste mimes and clowns in an abundance. The fact there is a story-line of some interest and a 20s theme is great too. This is definitely the game for any fan of the RPG, Call of Cthulhu, as it is deeply menacing and nasty. Killing Time is a weird and bizarre twist on the normal 1st person. Does it suceed, well I am afraid I will have to leave that up to you. Robert and I cannot agree on it, it is it seems: one of those love it or hate kind of games.

If you can get past the minor grievances, you'll find a game that keeps you jumping for more reasons than one. Killing Time is a very good game with a great storyline, plenty of excellent mood music, and an atmosphere that will knock your socks off. If you are going to buy a first-person shooter game with dead things, you could do a lot worse than this one.
Hands up, who out there beside myself has had enough of the "Doom"-like first person shoot-'em-ups? Who else is tired of running down countless corridors, shooting multitudes of monsters and collecting tons of treasure?
If you are a fan of the Marathon Trilogy, Doom or Hexen, you may find Killing Time enjoyable. Logicware has managed to create a game that combines some of the gore of Quake with the intrigue and mystique of Myst and 7th Guest; nonetheless, the game seems to lack that certain something that makes you really want to play until your fingers cramp and your eyes dry out from staring at the monitor. Speaking of gore....Killing Time lists an ESTB rating of Mature 17+, so parents may want to try playing first before passing the game on to younger members of the household. Despite a few minor annoyances, I find Killing Time to be average but playable.
