Before commenting on how Hard Reset plays using various hardware configs I'd just like to thank Flying Wild Hog for this great video game. There is a lot to love about Hard Reset and not all of it has to do with how the game performs. For starters the-

Hard Reset isn't the shooter you've been playing for the last few years. Well, unless you've been busy at work with the Painkiller series. Instead, Hard Reset fills a niche of shooters from about a decade ago by serving as a throwback to a...69

For all it's atmosphere and impressive technical flair Hard Reset is an old school shooter at it's core. That will briefly appeal to those looking for some intense shooter action, but it'll ultimately be far too one dimensional to maintain...77

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...80

If Hard Reset is one thing, it's fun. Those who like action-packed FPS titles, look no further. This is about as action-packed as a game could get. It offers the action of a Serious Sam but has a much darker tone. The music is good, voice acting...-

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...60
