Overall, Hatred is an impressive shooter with solid gameplay elements of its genre. The lack of narrative, weapon choices, and some minor bug crashes were the game's downfall at major categories in this review. However, the almost great shooting gameplay touch of Hatred is the glory of them all. It's not great a game but it's not a horrible title either. Just good enough.

A "suicide-by-cop simulator" of the same level as the abominable Ethnic Cleaning.

Hatred is a good twin-stick shooter that manages to offer an interesting experience only through the actual theme. Besides that, however, it's not something outstanding. Developer Destructive Creations could have transformed its targets into zombies or civilians and escape the controversy, but it stuck to its initial idea, and while it's not executed all that well in terms of story, it deserves recognition.

I wanted this game to succeed. I really did.

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.

In theory Hatred could have been great but lacklustre development gets it thrown into a pit of mediocrity. It joins a stack of games I played once and never touched again, and that disappoints me on a personal level as I was hoping for so much more.

It's just an average game, which I think is the last thing Hatred wanted to be.

Wallows in its violence rather than revelling in it

Ultimately, I believe that the Hatred team simply tried to make something controversial in the hopes that nobody would notice how forgettable their title is.
