Heretic built it, Hexen took it to the next level!
Hexen is the next step in the Heretic saga. It is a first person, kind of shooter, kind of a role player. The role playing element comes in the form of choosing a class to play as. There are just three, the fighter, the cleric and the mage. As a fighter you're able to tackle the game without needing to pay too much attention to staying away from clusters of enemies, so you're more of like the tank type. The cleric is more of a balanced class, allowing you more mid ranged attacks, while the mage is a bit harder to play, as you need to keep your distance as much as possible, though later, on it sure is the deadliest class there is with mass destruction spells taking the cake!. The game puts a lot of effort into differentiating the classes, with lots of weapons for each one. Graphically it's a good looking oldie game; that translates into medium quality textures; just the right amount of jaggedness and hub based level design. Basically, Hexen is Doom with staffs and fireballs, running on the same, updated graphics engine. Also, it's got a killer playlist, if you love a bit of Midi death metal, hehe! Surely worth a go for Doom aficionados or for oldschool first person shooters.
