    Hector: Badge of Carnage is without question, one of the best new adventures-in fact, one of the best game properties-to come out in recent memory. With its likeably slobbish anti-hero and the possibility for endless story setups, we adventure fans would do well to cross our fingers that the collaboration between Telltale and Straandlooper continues well beyond the current trilogy.

    Overall, I strongly recommend Hector: Badge of Carnage to anyone who doesn't mind the comedy, and for those who were on the fence about continuing the series after the first episode, episode two does not disappoint.

    For the most part, Senseless Acts of Justice is more of the same great material we saw in the first episode.

    Hector isn't innovative. It doesn't raise the bar for gameplay in adventure games, nor does it really bring anything new to the table. It does, however, offer simple gameplay - offering an experience that's easy to get into, along with a downright funny adventure to boot.

    Hector is the kind of likeable moron you don't see much of in gaming these days, which may be one of the reasons Badge of Carnage is so compelling. The hand-drawn graphics and spot-on voice acting doesn't hurt this outlandish crime caper. There are some trite moments, but Hector's adventure is one fans of the genre should take on!

    Badge of Carnage Episode 2 offers another rowdy good trek through the vile streets of Clappers Wreake.

    Another great adventure game. If you want to get into a classic point-and-click adventure series, and are looking for something a bit more mature than many of TellTale's other titles, you have to try Hector.

    Requiring much more lateral thinking and old-school adventure antics than some of Telltale's latest offerings, Senseless Acts of Justice is both hilarious and challenging, although it once again leaves us hungry for more.

    This second episode doesn't improve too much the gameplay of its prequel but it adds new contents and new humor to the series. The only big problem for us is the lack of an italian translation.

    Senseless Acts of Justice is finally able to give us a real adventure game behind a cruel world: investigation and CSI feelings infact are the right key to open the door to a game that leaves its mark in adventure world.

    The second episode of this point & click adventure series is just as enjoyable as the first one, with challenging puzzles and lots of funny jokes. Though after two very similar episodes, I hope the third one will shake things up a bit.

    Hector has a hilariously rancid personality that few point-and-click characters can match, and when the writing is good, his antics can be highly amusing. However, the writing in Episode 2 is simply not up to snuff, and it brings the production down-especially when paired with boring puzzles and a story that goes on for too long.

    If you're dying to get your hands on another point and click game, Hector works fine in a pinch, but you might want to find another (like Runaway: A Road Adventure or A Vampyre Story) or start dipping into the classics if you haven't already.

    Quotation forthcoming.

    You certainly might find a few hours of amusement here, and original ludicrous comedic 2D adventures are something I'll always support, but Straandlooper have a long way to go before they reach LucasArts standard. They're not even at Leisure Suit Larry yet.

    A great continuation to the first chapter, Hector returns with more goofy characters (Specifically his dumb side-kick Lambert), a funnier script and a surprisingly exciting story. Great work Telltale! Full Review »
