    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.

    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.

    A very mediocre game, I'm afraid.

    A twin-stick shooter (if you're using a controller) that is relatively solid mechanics at the surface level but reveals more and more flaws the closer you look.

    The controversy that got the game so much attention turns out to be way out of proportion (as expected). The executions and brutality in the game are by no means extraordinary or particularly gruesome. Anybody who's ever played Soldier of Fortune 2 or seen a Mortal Kombat finishing move knows that this game is, in comparison, barely even graphic.

    If you were hoping for the isometric shooter to end all isometric shooters or for the one game that redefines gore and damage models in video games, you will be sorely disappointed. If you are content with some (ironically overplayed) angsty monologues, a tough but mechanically mediocre shooter and some execution scenes that quickly lose their bite, despite (or because of) ridiculous amounts of blood, pick this up on a Steam sale.

No story. Repetitive as hell. Empty soulless uninteresting protagonist. Everything taken up to eleven doesn't make a game insanely enjoyable, it just hits Poe's law at high speed. The poor poor innocents could be whatever you imagine them to be—pack of gums, stupid running bunch of pixels…—because they're as empty as the protagonist. If you want to be thrilled with the killing of innocents, you have to make the player feel that they're innocents and don't deserve to die in pain. But here… Well, without story, that's hard to pull off. Anyway. Two points: one for graphs, one for bollocks—too bad it's not enough nowadays, huh? If I wanted to get off on killing virtual innocents, I'd actually play anything but Hatred. Sorry. Expand

    Hatred is one of the most insulting games of all time.

    I don't mean offensive or shocking or anything like that.

    I mean downright insulting to your intelligence.

    Firstly, the gameplay is garbage. The controls suck, the shooting feels completely unsatisfying and lacking in impact, the difficulty is massively inflated because the developers just thought 'oh yeah let's just throw **** a bazillion enemies in' and the gameplay loop is so boring, uninspired and repetitive that I think I would rather play Hunt Down the Freeman.

    Then there's the story. Edgy isn't quite the right word to describe it. **** moronic is more what I like to say. It wants to appeal to those annoying **** that act as if everyone is a terrible person and we should just commit genocide because isn't that just such a mature, thought provoking, well thought out idea?

    Yeah you can not convince me that the devs of this game have ever had a normal conversation with another person outside of circle jerking with other edgy kids on **** about how much they hate the world.

    So **** gameplay paired with an insufferable, irritating story.

    Imagine you took the first Postal game and removed all the impact, thought, self awareness and substance, and you'd get this game.

    Overall, **** game with nothing of value for anyone who isn't an insufferable **** who hates everything because they think it makes them mature
