    Leaving the controversy at the door, Hatred is a solid 90's isometric action game, with 80's horror cheese, and cringe inducing parodying of what is considered edgy.

    Hatred is a very playable game for fans of adrenaline and bloody thrills, although the content of the game is a bit controversial. The game could be longer, more diverse and better optimized (Unreal Engine 4 is hungry for power). And given the overall quality Hatred did not deserve all the media buzz surrounding its development and most likely it won't be remembered in a few years' time.

    For all of the shock and hullaballoo following its path toward release, Hatred is nothing special or particularly egregious in the world of video game violence, except for the fact that it relies on that violence alone. The game takes itself extremely seriously and has plenty of extremely violent content and murder, but it ends up feeling more like camp.

    Hatred delivers some fleeting sadistic satisfaction and a gorgeous art style, but quickly becomes a tedious chore. After all the controversy, it's disappointing that the finished product is mechanically flawed and otherwise completely forgettable.

    It is without a point. It fires its Uzi rounds aimlessly and manages to hit nothing. It’s not bad, it’s not horrific, it’s not reprehensible and it’s not memorable either.

    I have to kill everbody. It works, but it's a primitive piece of garbage. It's so bad, it's almost funny.

    Hatred, as a piece of transgressive art, is a failure. It's dull, its violence crass and unconvincing, and its understanding of humanity shallow at best. But it's worth looking at, if only to understand why, and if only to interrogate what, if anything, could be gained from peering closely at something so horrible.

    In our days game like this is very rarely
    But game could be longer, more diverse. You shoot and move around big environments, using a variety of weapons, throwing explosives, and causing a lot of havoc.
    After hard day best to relax.

    Game is good. Not great, just good.
    Awesome explosions.
    Awesome things you can do to houses.
    Way houses react to grenades/explosions.

    Steering on PC is kinda... not too great. Pad is way better.

    The problem with Hatred is not that it is offensive or shocking or goes too far.
    It does not go far enough. Hatred's crime is that it is a lukewarm half-measure, nothing exciting or visceral about it. The aesthetic and gameplay may cater to angsty teenagers who have never seen video game or movie violence before, but that's about it.

    Soldier of Fortune 2 came out in 2002 and to this day is much more shocking and disturbing than Hatred. It has features that would do well in a game made to be shocking, like a first person perspective, deformable meshes allowing different parts of the skull to be blown away, bleeding from injuries, intestines spilling from within. This game features no schools, no children, nothing truely disgusting or abhorrent or awful. It is just a game. Just a boring, trite game that sadly does not live up to it's aspirations or promises.

    How can a game with a pulled out isometric perspective to remove the player from the violence mayhem possibly have an impact?
