Managed to finish Hard Reset (the complete edition) today, in a little more than 8 jours.
Man, what a game, what a game!! Wild Hog Studios, if you continue making such amazing games, you'll soon become one of my favorite companies! ^_^
Hard Reset does what a handful of FPS achieve: combine utterly stunning graphics (yes, really AAA game-level of graphics), a perfect maniability, a large panel of weapons of accessories, an interesting setting, challenging adversaries and a touch of strategy.
How so, a strategy? Well, you HAVE to perfectly know your weapons, the characteristics of the enemies you're fighting and the setting you're in. There are lots of destructible elements in the area, some of which can open secret zone, some of which can impact on the fight (explosive barrels, electric devices, etc...).
Without that bit of organization, you can't reasonably expect to beat the game. Enemies are quite unforgiving, to say the least, even in Normal difficulty. I've just beaten that difficulty and boy, I'm afraid just by thinking about higher levels of difficulty... ^_^
So, if you like FPS, intelligent ones, with a good level design, and that will be a challenge for you to complete, grab Hard Reset as soon as possible!
A warning, though: the hero uses waaaaaay too often the celebrated "F--K" word. It gets annoying since it is used with no reason. It's a very minor flaw in that game, but still a flaw.
For my list of completed games in 2013, see the first post of this thread.
