    Great gameplay and visuals, falls flat on length and story.

    Rated on February 11, 2012 by spittis

    So, let's start with the good things. Aiming and controls in general are top notch, apart from the weapon switching that seemed a bit off sometimes. It didn't bother me though. Visuals, just awesome! ...

    Hard Reset has great atmosphere and graphics, but this is one hard game

    Rated on March 29, 2012 by ivory_soul

    The Good: Excellent visuals, interesting weapons The Bad: Frustratingly difficult, broken weapon system, repetitive enemies, very linear, uninteresting story, messy cut scenes Hard Reset is a cy...

    Groundhog Day... errr... revisited.

    Rated on July 22, 2012 by JimmyJumpy

    Hard Reset is a game which made me go from loadsa-fun to wanting to molest my computer in frustration, because the true feature of this game is that you're constantly being reset, the hard way. Meani...

    Hard reset is a lot of fun and looks absolutely amazing.

    Hard reset is the game I've been waiting to play for a long time. There are a lot of other great games out there, but sometimes I miss the old days before shooters became what they have today. It i...

    Hard Reset has splendid graphics and interesting weapons, but does not live up to its promises made during marketing.

    Rated on April 30, 2013 by Gelugon_baat

    INTRO: During the time of this game, there were and still are more than a few rumblings from older game consumers about the general state of the FPS genre in the present day. They happen to hark fr...

    Quality over quantity, I guess.

    Rated on September 14, 2011 by PeterDuck

    To say that this game is short is an understatement. This game occupies 3056 MB of space. Yeah, go figure. That's why they decided to not waste a DVD on it. THE POSITIVES 1. This is a PC exc...

    a perfectly arranged stage, but no actors showed up...

    Rated on September 25, 2011 by etchcorp

    Well, this game leaves sensation of a good party, you were invited to: everything is perfect: place, food, drinks... but nobody shows up... so you've got to celebrate with... yourself. I think it is e...

    Old school mechanics and great graphics in a Blade-Runner-esque setting, all for a budget price. What's not to love?!

    Rated on September 22, 2011 by Phileosophos

    I don't get why reviewers complain that Hard Reset is too short. True, the single-player campaign took me four or five hours to complete, but that's roughly two-thirds as long as Call of Duty: Black O...

    A startling example of misguided nostalgia as a marketing ploy

    Rated on September 24, 2011 by RealFabioSooner

    Nostalgia is a tricky thing mostly because it's based on memory, and one doesn't need to be a trained psychoanalyst to know we can't rely on memories alone - that's why humanity has developed a number...

    Just when Hard Reset starts to get good - it's over.

    Rated on October 08, 2011 by magusat999

    Hard Reset is an FPS about a dude in the future trying to save the world... or is it the city??? - from robot takeover. Machines are out of control due to advanced AI gone nutso, like some Terminator-...
