Here's my take on this kick in the balls of a game

That's sadly pretty much what I expected after seeing the Quick Look here on the site.
 
I just can't get into that style of shooter, with 95% of its focus on how awesome everything looks and how sweet the circle-strafing is, but a completely neglected story. It's a pity that Flying Wild Hog has such amazing artists and game designers, but apparently not much in the way of writers.
Hell, I would settle for audio logs or even text logs, as long as they could make them as good as something like Metroid Prime.

I still want it.  Play Deus Ex for the story and Hard Reset for the gunplay is my plan.

8D hopefully they'll address the main issues before the game's released (and this is why demos are a good thing). The only thing that really bothered me was the blurry sprinting - I honestly can't stand motion blur :(

The motion blur when sprinting was kinda off-putting, but I didn't feel like it got in the way because I when I was sprinting it was to get away from stuff, meaning I already had a clear route planned. The game is great, and if you can look passed the laughable story then you're going to have a great time getting your ass kicked.

I reviewed Hard Reset yesterday for The Game Fanatics.. since it seems to be the only review online I figured I'd post it for those on the fence about preordering on Steam for the small discount.

Yeah I think your review is Spot on. I love it because it suits my personal filias, but I do think the game story could use a bit of work and It would be nice to have more variety on the enemy department. I stilI dare someone to find a game with this visual quality with an original tag of $30 dlls.

The demo felt more like a tech demo then a game.
