The offspring of the (in)famous Doom
and the sequel of Heretic
, Hexen is an even more bloody action game that is made in the same engine as it's spiritual predecessor. I have seen a lot, but I have never seen a game as bloody and violent as this one is. The continuation of the Heretic plot, this game is set in another realm called Cronos, and it is besieged by Krolax
. It is your task as one of three heroes to kill him in the most violent way possible. Because, in this game, there is no other way. Where Doom was a sci fi game
, Hexen is a dark fantasy game, so it may be more appealing for the fans of that genre. What is new is the introduction of character class - you can play as a fighter, cleric or mage, and your gameplay and weapons
system depend on your choice. The rest is the same as in Doom and Heretic. The graphics are equally good (or bad) as in the last two games, but the music is much better than they were. If you're for some blood and gore, you will get more than your fill in this game. I absolutely loved it.
