Gaming Nexus has posted a new review of Telltale Games' Hector: Badge of Carnage. The game follows the exploits of Detective Inspector Hector's adventures in Clapper's Wreake during a hostage crisis. Gaming Nexus gave the game a letter grade of B.

From the review:

The point and click gameplay isn't going to win over any new fans, as it's exactly the same as games from twenty years ago. You pick up seemingly obscure items strewn about the levels and combine them with other bizarre objects. The game uses the tried and true adventure game logic, which isn't always the same thing you would do in real life. The game doesn't make a big deal about what items you can pick up, so it's easy to completely miss the much-needed puzzle piece. Still, these are the types of complaints you've heard about graphic adventures for years. The trade-off is an exceptionally well written (and often crude) game with characters that will stick with you long after the credits roll.

After spending so much time with Telltale's usual polygonal characters, it was nice to see something more two-dimensional. The characters and backgrounds all look hand-drawn, each with just enough detail to remind players how disgusting everything in this game is. I was also impressed with the sense of humor, which is decidedly darker than what the adventure game giant is known for. Maybe it's the art style or the fact that they all have accents, but it feels like Straandlooper gets away with some extraordinarily rude material. Either way, I like it.
