    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

    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.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand 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. Expand

    Though gameplay and puzzles aren't THAT profound, Hector Badge of Carnage benefits from a goofy story, sleazy characters and a funny script. Oh BTW it's crude. VERY CRUDE! LOL!

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Definetly one of the best adventure game I've played in years. To me it's a must have. Very good graphics (and style), extremely funny and original dialogs and, of course... HECTOR! Expand

    If you thought Leisure Suit Larry was funny and awesome. This is for you. I don't. Me and my mates down the pub crack cleverer and filthier jokes than this. But with its style it was always going to be divisive.

    Awful game with awful humor. Its not just controversial, its venomous and dumb. There is no limit the developer will not pass in terms of raunchiness and violence. The result of capitalism's dark side.

    Hector is something very unique: a casual point'n click adventure for adults, especially if offensive and gross humour is your cup of tea. The game doesn't shine on puzzle design, but it compensates this with fair amount of well-written and well-acted dialogue. The story isn't too bad, either. [Sept 2011]

    As with any episodic content, We Negotiate with Terrorists ends on a cliffhanger, a most amusing one at that.

    To say the level of humour is an acquired taste would be an understatement. [Issue#110, p.118]
