IMG Reviews Hector: Badge Of Carnage Episode 1
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Telltale Games and Straandlooper Animation's Hector: Badge of Carnage - Episode 1. The first installment of Detective Inspector Hector's adventures in Clapper's Wreake, the game puts players in the role of Hector as he deals with a hostage crisis.

Here's an excerpt from the review:

Hector himself is crude but oddly likable. His gruff, sarcastic character grows on you, no matter how disgusting something is you just did. The rest of the game's cast is equally insane, disgusting and racy by turns. The game's hand-drawn animated style does take the edge off some of the subject matter, and surprisingly well done voice acting keeps characters vibrant. Despite taking every opportunity to create a funky or crude situation, the game pushes the boundaries just the right amount. Fortunately, things are mostly about the gameplay rather than just shock value and it succeeds with crafting a unique and hilarious experience.
Check out the full review at the link below.
