Hard Reset is a great game, a hard and pure FPS that will surely rediscover the genre who was already tired of see the same things year after year. The management of weapons, upgrades and ammo can raise some doubts at first, but just a few rounds to familiarize yourself with the choices made by the developers, leading to fighting really exciting and often in the name of strategy, given the level of difficulties above the average. The feeling of weapons and their sense of impact is excellent, and we know that it is a key element in this vein, but it's the careful progression in the discovery of new and more powerful enemies that enhances the experience and makes it very engaging. Finally, considering the budget price, there really are no excuses: Hard Reset is definitely a product not to be missed.

Hard Reset is at heart a classic FPS game, in the gist of Quake and DOOM. Its style is a mix of dystopian future tech (such as Blade Runner) and classic and military future tech. It's a unique mix that makes for a great looking game, however there isn't much to keep you going back.
If you're a fan of classic FPS games such as Doom and Quake, you will want to pick this up. Otherwise, you might want to wait.

The gameplay is old-school and a lot of fun. It's like Painkiller mixed with Blade Runner. The game has greatly benefitted from big and generous patches that have added a chunk of extra content as well as updates to the engine. Hard Reset is highly recommended for those who love games that are all about the shooting and finding hidden loot in the map. Pick this one!

Most indie games are light on production value, which this game is not. Hard Reset is a well thought out game that reminds you a little of games like Serious Sam but with a cyberpunk feel. The story is confusing and not laid out well, but the action makes up for it. Definitely a game worth try and you will not be dissapointed.
Great gem of a game and you will want to finish it all the way to the end. They even added more levels to give you more game play that wasn't originally in the game at the beginning when it first came out. Give it a shot, you will love it.

I can sum this game up in 1 word : WOW. Games like this aren't made enough anymore. Although i'm not too high on most shooter games, this one pushed all the right buttons, and i can only recommend it at the highest rating to EVERYONE.
