Hard Gameplay

lajvjjajajaaaa | July 31, 2014 | See all lajvjjajajaaaa's reviews »

Hard Reset is first-person shooter game which take place dangerous lands beyond the last human city of Bezoar. The gameplay is kinda similar to Quake, it's kinda old school shooter. You are Major Fletcher army veteran and you're dragged into a conflict between the humanity greatest enemies. Also you're gonna meet new enemies and friends. The Hard Reset also includes the Exile which includes several new foes, bosses and maps. The graphics are enjoyable to the eyes, the sounds are quit good and the story too. The levels are with good design, there are good amount of secrets in all of them. The game have cool weapons but they're somehow disappointing.



Never Hard Reset this game please.

iMichaelCortez | July 26, 2014 | See all iMichaelCortez's reviews »

Many, many FPS games should be like this, still hard to believe this is an indie game, it's too well made, astonishing graphics,pretty straight forward controls as every FPS should be, incredibly good playability, beautiful physics and the list never ends. Recommended for FPS lovers, and Steam Punk lovers too, that marriage os Steam Punk and FPS feeds my gaming soul with joy. Buy this game, totally worth the price. No, this game is underpriced.


What many FPS games wished they were

AkiMatti | March 21, 2014 | See all AkiMatti's reviews »

Hard Reset is what hardcore fps games should be all about. Great graphics, works well on low specs, fast paced, top notch controls, weapons customization and as a bonus cyberpunk world!

For myself an added bonus is also that I don't have to fight people in this game so there is no blood. Shooting robots is kind of more innocent, I think, and harder to feel bad when you shoot them to junk.

The movement also reminds of Quake, which basically invented strafe-circling.

A great game, really. Oh, I almost forgot to mention how you can also use the environment to scorch your enemies! Blasts of electricity, fire etc. from different sources are available and can really change the outcome of the firefight.



Strafe key we miss you !

McHawk | Feb. 11, 2014 | See all McHawk's reviews »

Are you looking for old school fps? Do you miss your strafe key? Hard Reset is the answer! Flying Wild Hog did a great work wit this game, bringing us a funny shooter with a lot of enemies, explosions,and different weapons. To be honest ,we have only two guns, one firing rounds, the other working with plasma cells, but we can upgrade these two basic weapons, collecting nanocells and using them in upgrading stations found in many locations through all the stages. Our two guns can assume five different configurations, for a total of ten destruction tools, each one with two alternative fire modes: a lot of choices for our play style!

Graphics is very good,with good models and nice textures , but there are frame issues in some points of the game. Soundtrack does its work, without memorable tracks though.

Conclusion : buy this game, it is not innovative, but you will have a lot of fun playing it.


Epic cyberpunk romp

cannibalwombat | Jan. 28, 2014 | See all cannibalwombat's reviews »

Enjoyed the sh*t out of this game. If you accept it for what it is (a linear cyberpunk FPS) and don't get preoccupied by the marginal story and short campaign (though most reviewers criticise the brevity, it actually took me a respectable 10 hours) then you'll have a blast.

The weapons and cyber-metropolis setting are absolutely awesome. You can really feel every shot and the widely destructible environments and enemies make the game feel so tactile, so... visceral (pretentious language, but you know what I mean). If you just want to blast robots with futuristic laser guns, and you've already played Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, then I heartily recommend this game.
