    Hector Badge of Carnage: We Negotiate With Terrorists is a great little adventure that's often shocking, frequently offensive and always hilarious. Despite (or perhaps because of) its gross out moments and unabashedly low-brow humor, it's one of the most entertaining, unique adventure games most of us have seen in longer than we'd like to remember.

    Hector: Badge of Carnage is a very funny game. Set in Clapper'ss Wreak, the worst **** in the history of mankind, this game has you playing as Hector, an unclassy, mean-spirited drunk, who happens to be a detective, and a very good one i might add. A terrorist with hostages takes over a building, and you have to comply with his demands, which will have you solving all sorts of challenging puzzles all over town. One thing that I love about this game is how edgy the humor is. It's not sophisticated humor, like Portal 2, but more like South Park and Family Guy. This game will have you laughing out loud, if not at least chuckling to yourself. Some people will be offended by this, so if you're one of those **** who likes to write letters to the FCC, shutting down shows/ book series that you deem "too inappropriate", this isnt for you. The voice acting is ridiculous, but great. The only bad thing about Hector is that it has very little replay value. I dunno if you're gonna want to play through this game more than once. THE VERDICT:
    Hector: Badge of Carnage is a hilarious and fun game to play through the first time, but once you beat it, you probably wont go back, unless to show your friends. This game has a lot of edgy/vulgar humor, so it's not recommended for kids under 10. All in all, a memorable experience, and a must have for any "point and click" fan

    This review contains spoilers, click full review link to view. I got this game in an indie bundle sale. It's a point and click puzzle game about Hector, an alcoholic, smoking, foul-mouthed detective. After playing for half an hour, I uninstalled it in disgust. Combining a rope and a condom to fish a paperclip out of a dirty toilet? Well, that's not my idea of humor, and that was just the first scene. On top of that, I didn't like the graphics at all I think they look like cheap flash animations. Check some screenshots to see what I mean. I suggest you stay away from this game, unless you're really desperate for some of the cheapest, lowest and most childish pseudohumor imaginable. Full Review »

    A modern-day, classic adventure game. If it doesn't remind you of the good ol' SCUMM days, then I'm not sure what will. Like everyone says: it's lewd, crude, rude, and awesome dude! (I apologize for the horrible, horrible rhyme). This game just might beat any of TellTale's modern adventure games. Full Review »
