The Steam users are very impressed

Of the almost (14,700 user reviews) 93 percent are positive. All in all, Hacknet enjoys a very positive &nbspoverall conclusion, with the most recent reviews even resulting in an extremely positive &nbspmood.

As already mentioned, the immersion is mostly praised. The Steam user (Ducky) speaks from the soul of many other reviewers with his rating:

This game makes me feel like a hacker
like a cool hacker
like I’m playing this game and whispering in my hacker voice I’m in

Criticism is also occasionally voiced. (AereGloria) for example, is annoyed by the triste presentation and the frequent time pressure when cracking servers and other systems.

By the way: If you’ve tasted blood after completing the story, you can even create your own campaigns thanks to the official mod tools. This even includes custom music, custom system networks and more. Once your mod campaign is finished, you can share it with other hackers via the Steam Workshop.
