Holy crap! I want more!

That was genuinely fun. If the rest of the game is like that, I will gladly spend $30 on this game. It's money well spent and well deserved for the developers.

It's also very refreshing to play a game that looks beautiful and runs perfectly on my current system. I have a feeling I won't be so lucky with Battlefield 3. My system is coming up on 2 years old, and after the beating it took from Metro 2033, I'm so glad Hard Reset utilizes Unreal Engine 3 so well. The lighting is very ambient and looks beautiful. The graphics are breathtaking. Very cyberpunk-ish. I like it a lot.

BTW, I have this game maxed @ 1920x1200. It never dropped below 50 FPS during the demo. FANTASTIC!!!

Yeah, another game that makes great use of the UE3 but the Unreal Engine has had some updates. Alice Madness Returns didn't make good use of UE3.

great game, somewhat reminds of the shutdown Metropolis project called "they"

Some might remember Metropolis, makers of Infernal.

In case anyone wants to save some fps, I would suggest using the fxaa injection instead of MLAA. In the menu, I got 78 fps with no AA, 72 with FXAA, and ~53 with MLAA. Only tried the benchmark on highest settings @ 1080p w/ FXAA, got a min of 31 and avg 71 fps.

7/10 Didn't appeal to me this game. Kinda shallow and dull. Maybe on stupid cheap sale I'll buy this.

Hard Reset doesn't use Unreal 3, it uses a brand new engine....

Everything maxed MLAA on my system. I had 4xfxaa but had to dial it back to hover around 60 fps. I enjoyed the whole "using your environment" gameplay mechanic. Some of the graphics seem dated but the world itself looks great. I m getting a blade runner vibe out of this one. The enemies were done well. Finally a game in which the robots weak point isn't its head.

Getting 50-70fps @ 1080 with 16xCSAA and 8xSSTAA. The game seems really intense.

I loved the demo, very old school Unreal/UT is. I bought it on Steam, can't wait until 9/13. 26.99 is a good deal for this game.

I like how you interact with items in the game and pop up weapon mod menu terminal are pretty cool as well.
