“If I could get off this thing I’d come over, shake your hand and say congratulations, you’re ret@rded.”
There is no mistake that the humour in this game series is the highlight of the whole experience. It’s a slightly darkish humour but funny none the less. Especially if you get the quirky little remarks and references only a fellow brit would.
Hector: Badge of Carnage is a point and click adventure game set in a small ♥♥♥♥♥♥ British town that has been overrun with corruption and lack of giving a toss. Full of chavs, junkies, prozzies and rather crappy coppers you play as Hector, a questionable detective who is going to help the town, catch the bad guy and save the day!
…so he can indirectly help himself to probably go back to the pub or for a kip.
Dialog in this game is very amusing, at least it was to me. I would recommend the game for that alone.
Characters are enjoyable most of the time, the main ones are loveable, the… chav and junkie extras and whatnot not so much. But they’re WRITTEN to be annoying! So good job, old bean!
What I remember of the music wasn’t bad. Didn’t make me want to pull my hair out so that’s a good start.
Graphics are nice, I enjoy classic point and clicks more so then the newer ones and this game series is definitely one that should be on the list for anyone that likes the same.
Literally the only problem I had with this series is that I had a crash during the second episode. I lost no progress but it was still mildly annoying. Apart from that and me having a slow start with it (probably the old point and click brain trying to boot up again) I haven’t a bad word to say about it.
TL;DR : Great/slightly dark British humour, amusing characters, nice graphics and an all-around great little series, I recommend any point and click fan buys it.
