Hard Reset Redux is a brand new version of the cyberpunk classic that includes all the content of previous editions, and adds new improved gameplay, enhanced visuals and additional content to make this the Definitive Edition of Hard Reset. Hard Reset Redux is an action-packed and hardcore single-player shooter which embraces the best qualities that the genre has it offer. It includes over-the-top destruction, loads of enemies, great weapon variety, a challenging campaign and a beautifully realized cyberpunk setting. Having been originally developed to shake-up the shooter scene on PC, Hard Reset now returns to do it again on a new generation of hardware. To begin with, the very first aspect that I loved in this game is definitely the fact that the title not only has the same amazing graphics but also there is a huge improvement in loading times.

Hard Reset Redux The title has also been updated to the newest version of the RoadHog engine and includes improved lightning and effects. Moreover, there is a new weapon the katana, which is really effective in close combat especially against the new enemies that were added in the game like the zombies. The player can now dash as well, a move that can be both useful in combat and also while moving around in the world. It still remains amazing how great it is to evolve your weapon and your gear and unlock new devastating ways to pretty much kill everyone.

Hard Reset Redux The enemies are also introduced differently throughout the game, and provide a decent challenge for even the most seasoned Hard Reset veteran. As far as the negative aspects are concerned, the first one is that the new zombie type it just doesn’t add any decent challenge to the game. They can be killed really easily especially with the Katana weapon. Moreover, I don’t know why someone will pay again for a title they have already played even thought they have improvements and small changes.

To sum up, the game has improved a lot since its first day out but also there are things that make this game really not worth picking it up for a second time if you have played the original. I still love the first one and some of these features could have been a patch or something like that without a price tag.

Verdict: 7.5/10
