I found the objects that needed to be combined were rather obvious too, which is always a good thing in my book. There is nothing worse than roaming around an adventure game not knowing what to do next because you have not...

Way back when adventure games with a wicked sense of humour were all the rage. Now thanks to ex-employees of a company that led the way in this field we could see a resurgence of the genre....

We've all seen our fair share of crime dramas to know what the bad cop in "good cop, bad cop" is all about, and we expect bad cops to be sufficiently badass in their mannerisms. Telltale Games and Straandlooper's Hector: Badge of Carnage -...

It may be an old cliché, but the truth of the matter is that first impressions do count. The way something or someone catches your eye that first time around does make a difference. This is unquestionably true for videogames – that opening...

Usually, a point-and-click adventure game puts you in the role of a heroic character, or at worst someone forced by circumstances to do absurd things. Hector: Badge of Carnage gleefully does the opposite, putting players in control of a cynical,...

It’s an episodic series, so Hector: Badge of Carnage – Episode 1 is unsurprisingly short. The writing is really good in general (despite one tasteless bit of dialogue where Hector calls some gangsters “homos” instead of...

In the shopworn, hackneyed, cliche-filled world of police drama, the last thing anyone needs is another brooding, beard-stubbled, lantern-jawed cop. I’ve always said that what's really needed to keep the wheels of fake justice turning is a...

When I saw that Hector: Badge of Carnage was a product of Telltale Games, I thought I knew exactly what to expect: cartoonish graphics, a light-hearted story with some mildly off-color humor, and point-and-click gameplay. Ten minutes later, the...

Det är sällan man överraskas av ett spel men Hector tog mig fullkomligt på sängen. Jag är inte bekant med Straandloopers animerade filmer eller deras iPhone/iPad-spel sedan tidigare men efter första episoden av...

International Review By Gamer.no on 70

Hector: Episode 1 er den morsomste Telltale-utgivelsen jeg har spilt på evigheter. Det er fullstappet av herlige dialoger og absurde situasjoner, men vær oppmerksom på at humoren ikke akkurat er av den fintfølende sorten. Folk som...
