“Late Shift is interesting enough on its first go around, but without reward in its narrative or punishment in its gameplay, there's not enough reason to go back.”

6.5 / 10
“Though Late Shift looks stylish and boasts a clever script, the lack of meaningful choices and a chapter selection drowns its promise”
Windows Central
by Jen Karner
“Late Shift uses an awesomely innovative idea in a game that revolves around a young man being pulled into a deadly heist. The lack of normal gameplay elements makes it a very different kind of game, but it's a fun and compelling sprint for anyone who likes a good story.”
