Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
It is unfair to compare this game to a AAA game released by one of the big companies but unfortunately those games are the benchmarks by which gamers set standards. We (gamers) are quick to jump on the bandwagon when a supposed AAA game fails in some way and condemn it. So this "budget" title Hard Reset makes no promises, has no hyped up advertising it just leaves the question "Do you like it or not?"
As already mentioned it is obviously based around Bladerunner. The architecture, the environment and atmosphere screams Bladerunner. At first run I ramped up the settings to max., easily achievable on a modern PC for this game and it does look good. A great deal of attention has been put into neon signs, massive advertising boards, run-down buildings all set in a futuristic environment. The story begins very sparsely presented by cartoon Max Payne 2 style "cut scenes" and really it isn't a story, it just says "There's a breach in sector xxxxx go sort it out". So plunged into a city with what is a beautiful looking weapon, you head off in search of what you can assume from what you know, rogue robots. Eventually you find some robots who bound towards you, first instinct is SHOOT!. Of course this works but ammo is rapidly depleted then a tip appears saying shoot electrical devices like ATM machines, machines of unknown description and for some reason electric rubbish bins, these release electric shocks and if timed correctly will damage the enemy robots and save you some ammo. So I set about taunting the robots near to an electric source and setting if off, effective but not "Shoot em' up" gameplay. There are hidden areas which are accessed by blowing up explosive barrels to reveal them but really are not worth it. So level 1 over...next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent if old-school FPS 4 May 2013
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought Hard Reset on a whim as it's on sale for such a cheap price. Not knowing exactly what to expect, I wasn't sure if I'd enjoy the game. I'm happy to say that I'm very glad I did buy it. Installation wasn't quite as easy as I expected as the game requires clicking on a link in an activation email that's sent to you when you register. Firstly, why do I need to create an "account" when it's a strictly single-player game? Secondly, the activation email I received from Calypso was designated as spam by my Gmail account and it took me a while to figure out why I wasn't receiving the email. Something to bear in mind if you also think that you don't receive the activation email - look in your spam folder as it may actually be ther instead of your inbox. After I finally activated the game and a couple of minutes adjusting the variety of graphical and game settings I was in and playing.

The world of Hard Reset has a dark film-noire crossed with cyberpunk feel to it and heavily reminded me of Blade Runner, as does the story in a way. This is certainly not a bad thing and the attention to detail that's obviously been lavished on the map design makes for a very atmospheric, believable environment. Originally I though that the game was based on the Unreal engine. I stand corrected though - the Polish developers actually wrote their own engine from scratch. Apparently it's very well optimised which is well evidenced by it's excellent performance on my system: i7-960, 6GB of 2GHz RAM, GTX-560Ti graphics card with 2GB of GDDR3 RAM. I got a very nice 60 (minimum) - 160 (maximum)fps with FSAA and isotropic texture filtering both enabled, running in 1920 x 1080 resolution.

4.0 out of 5 stars Futuristic Serious Sam 21 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If you like Serious Sam I would expect you would like this game too, hectic gameplay to short quiet time back to hectic gameplay and so on, all in claustrophobic areas. The music and sound is really good, the graphics are gorgeous running on a gtx780 with all the settings ramped to the max.

Very much a "one more go" game and at under 3! you can't go wrong with this fps. The only thing I did not like was having to setup an account at the start of the game with an email and password.

Fully compatible with my Razer Sabertooth game pad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value shooter 12 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
A lot cheaper than the latest 'biig guns' but hut as much fun. Amazon has the cheapest price on this one of all the games suppliers. To extend the game's life, search out kDLC (downloadable content) on game review sites such as gamespot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a good game 25 May 2013
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I hate when people do not spell definitely correctly. I get violent urges when people write "must of" instead of "must have". And as for apostrophes ...............
Great game. Not too deep. Serious Sam with much, much better graphics. The whole look and feel is high class eye candy. Great sounds. Not much variation in the enemies but frantic blasting is fun. There is not much scope to use the sniper scope. As soon as you see an enemy robot, 20 attack you. Weapons are upgrades to two basic weapons. I loved the graphical attention to detail. Coloured shadows on the plasma rifle as you pass a neon sign looks ultra cool. My 650ti runs the game at near maximum settings and still smoother than a toboggan on glass. I like a wee bit of stealth in my shooters. None here hence the 4 stars. Great fun.

I think this is what reviewers mean by "retro shooter" because that's exactly what it is, shoot everything that moves and much that doesn't. Read more

This is totally budget this game but I still enjoyed it. Limited enemies and levels are all quite samey. Few jokes big bosses but generally just a bit of a laugh.
