Hatred - Gameplay Trailer
May 29, 2015Hatred 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.
Jun 2, 2015For 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.
Jun 22, 2015Hatred, 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.

The controls, especially theI've wanted this game since it was first announced and I gotta say; I am not disappointed in the slightest.
The controls, especially the few times you are in vehicles, are a bit awkward at first. After you get used to them, it doesn't play bad at all. I would recommend playing with a gamepad for this one, though, as moving with the keyboard is really awkward. Since the game is isometric, you have to hit W and D to move up/right, instead of W to go up/right, which should have been an option. Also, when using the mouse to aim, the camera moves around a LOT more, which can be disorienting.
The graphics are great and stylized, and I've only rarely seen any slowdown. Lots of physics effects and the environments are destructible. You can for instance drive a car through someone's house, and then blow the car up, and watch the walls and bodies fly! This is complemented by the fire effects which shine in full color out of the black and white background.
Be warned, this game has an oldschool setup when it comes to the difficulty. If you die, you have to restart the level over. You earn respawn points by completing objectives, which helps, but they don't carry over to the next level. This game isn't for rage quitters or people who want their hand held throughout the game. It's what I call NES hard. I'm currently playing through it on easy just to get a feel for the game, and it's still a challenge, especially the second stage. Once I complete the game, I'll definitely give Hard and Extreme difficulty a try.
I currently have put two hours into the game, and it's damn fun, and a good challenge. It's not the deepest game, for sure, and I've heard it's not super long, but for $20, I'd say it's worth it. With Hard and Extreme difficulty modes, I'll definitely get my money's worth. As of now, I'd give it an 8/10.… Expand

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?… Expand

There are some compelling gameplay additions and amusing moments if you can stand to play this game to it's bitter end (I had a few chuckles, but very few), but none of which are compelling enough to recommend doing so.
The controls are pretty bad overall, keyboard or controller and more or less take away from the moderately passable gameplay to where it is generally more frustrating than fun. I don't have any particular opinion about the themes in the game, certainly there are more violent games but I don't really think what is here is all that significant.
The game itself isn't particularly great and if you are trying to sell a game on violence and headlines alone, the violence itself isn't very shocking either (no melee weapons, dismemberment or children) so some respects it's odd they held back when it's really the only merits on which this game is selling. Regardless of why you came to play this, you will probably leave disappointed.… Expand
