Yeah, it's quite fun. A bit on the short side but that's pretty forgivable since we got a demo before launch or even a demo at all. I think the two weapon mechanic with changing modes is really cool. I hope we get to see more from this team after Hard Reset.

Runs incredibly good on my kind of aged system, too.

Awesome game. The graphics is good, nice music and challenging gameplay.

It's also simple and not over complicate the gameplay. Simple and fun. Plus well optimized. I can run medium-high settings with an old Geforce 8600 GT! I just beat the game on insane too.

It's cool, but 16:10 aspect ratio seems a zoomed 16:9.
Can anyone confirm?

Hm, after lowering graphics quality a bit got it to run smooth enough (it setting them on max by default? Strange, most games sort of analyze your PC). Not really impressed, won't pay release price.
Also, talk about PC exclusivity... Didn't see anything that can't be done on console right away. Maybe in later levels?

I hate to be the odd man out on this one, but I won't be buying this right away. Everybody has read the previews so I won't rehash the issues they bring up, but I found both the environment and the enemies generic. I'll read the reviews and and see if some of the later levels bring something new to the table. If not, my money goes to Serious Sam.

Awesome demo/ game

-weapons feel and sound right
-enemies are fast and brutal
-controls are perfect
-art style is beautiful
-graphics are top notch
-engine seems very well optimised
-...

The only things I find slightly "annoying" are the large hud and blur while running.

Feels great to play a real pc game after enduring that Dead Island mess and countless other xbox-->pc "ports".

Can't wait for the full game.

Looks good but Painkiller remains the best in this category.

Definitely old school FPS gameplay in in a shiny lighting, particle, physics candy wrapper. As long as reviews a) point out varied level design and b) varied enemies then I would consider purchasing the full game even at its fairly steep price.

It was fun but it's hard to say how much it reflects the quality of the entire length of the game.
