never thought id be able to type that^
Many games have tried to nail the visual aesthetic of Blade Runner, a movie that all but defined the look of the future for many fans of science fiction. Hard Reset is the first game that creates the futuristic, vertically oriented dystopia in a way that feels both real and natural. As I played the game, I found myself continually watching the flying ships cruise past, advertising fictional products. Massive structures fill the sky, and the gentle movement that's always going on above your head is an impressive site.
While we like to emphasize how important gameplay is to a game's success, graphics can certainly help, and Hard Reset looks amazing. Objects have weight, the textures are sharp and clear, and the levels are teeming with detail. The trailer only tells part of the story, as you'll be exploring just as often as you're shooting, and you'll often have time to admire your surroundings. Don't get too comfortable, however. This is a game that revels in its own action.
