Hard Reset - PC review at Thunderbolt Games

 

Despite sharing a camera perspective and the common goal of blasting dudes away, first-person shooter titles vary a lot. Quake is not the same as Red Orchestra, and Team Fortress has virtually nothing to do with Rainbow Six. However, since Call of Duty...

Flying Wild Hog's promising debut

Great pacing; fun weapons; looks great and runs well on a modest PC

Uses save checkpoints; short campaign; almost too old school

Hard Reset is a throwback FPS made by Flying Wild Hog, a studio that features developers from CD Projekt Red and People Can Fly. If those two

Hard Reset is a something special, a budget priced game that brings together familiar shooting mechanics with aspects of modern shooters. Other games have tried to create this interesting balance but few have succeeded the way Hard Reset does. It’s a...

The pure thrills of robot kills.

I'm an old-school fan of classic, frantic FPS games like Quake and Serious Sam, and many times I've heard a lament over how the days of those games are gone. Nothing seemed to nail that coffin shut for fans like Doom 3's claustrophobic setting and low...

I think the only unfortunate thing here is that many of the gamers that would enjoy Hard Reset - old Quake veterans setting up impromptu LAN parties in their college dorms in the late '90s - have since "grown up", gotten married, and are funneling all...

There have been few games over the past years that have tried to bring the the old school FPS route for today's gamers. Flying Wild Hog, who has pulled folks from The Witcher 2, Painkiller, Bulletstorm, and Sniper, is putting out Hard Reset, a...

For a throwback FPS, it's not too bad and it's priced at $30. The graphics are pretty well done, but there are some aspects of the game that can get pretty frustrating. Expect to die a lot as well since your health doesn't regenerate, but your shield...

Review: Hard Reset

 

For any game to succeed in the first person shooter genre in this generation, it needs to have some kind of hook. Homefront had a great setting, Bulletstorm had its crazy skill shots and Crysis 2 had the super-powered nanosuit. For indie developer...

In rather an odd situation for the games industry, Hard Reset was only announced two months ago and it's already out on the shelves (so to speak, it's digital only). For a new FPS that's quite a big deal, especially one from a new developer made up...

Taking on the gigantic Atlas boss. And that one’s then dwarfed by the final boss. Lucky there wasn’t a third one then or we’d get neck-ache.

The basic gameplay of the first person shooter is simple: point, shoot and kill. Flying Wild Hog bucks modernity for insanity.

Though a limited in many ways, it's still easy to have a good time with Hard Reset. It's a classically styled shooter where your main concern is how to blow stuff up as fast as possible without losing all your health. The disposable story and flat...

It's short and occasionally frustrating, but the fireworks display that is Hard Reset is still a blast.

Varied weapons lead to crazy, entertaining shoot-outs ; Challenging action forces you to use all the tools at your disposal ; Striking cyberpunk environments ; Hidden items and EX mode encourage replay

Too many cheap deaths ; Unresponsive weapon switching ; Comes to an abrupt end

It would be unfair to call Hard Reset just another pretty shooter, however. Variety comes not from mission or level design, but from the delicious opportunities your weapons grant you. You have two main weapons: a traditional assault firearm and an...
