About the Game

While you were battling the evil forces of D'Sparil, the other Serpent Riders were busy sowing the seeds of destruction in other dimensions. One such dimension is the decaying world where Hexen takes place. A world littered with the mangled corpses of nonbelievers and inhabited by the undead followers that executed them. Only three humans &endash; a warrior, a mage and a cleric &endash; have escaped the leaders' vicious spell. Now these brave souls have sworn to crush the evil regime that threatens to destroy the world forever. Separated upon entering the mystical portal, the three are forced to attempt on their own what they had hoped to do together: find Korax's stronghold, destroy him and restore order in the physical world.

  • Become one of 3 heroes. Wield superhuman powers and lethal weapons.

  • Pillage your way through earthquakes, crumbling bridges and fog.
  • Track down powerful artifacts and cast wicked spells.
  • Four sick individuals can wreak havoc via network, two by modem.

One of my favorite games. Take Doom and add some pseudo-RPG elements with a larger focus on puzzles. Set it all in a medieval world with a fantasy direction, as opposed to Doom's sci-fi/hell approach, and you've got Hexen. The music is top-notch as well. I recommend playing this in a Doom source port such as GZDoom, Doomsday, or any of the other available source ports. This will allow for a more modern control scheme and higher resolutions. (Note: this will of course mean that you won't log hours on your Steam record for the game, if that kind of thing matters to you.)

Confusing level design trumped by a gorgeous art style, creative weapons and violent gameplay. Not for everyone, but still one of the better FPS games of the 90's.

Greetings mortal. Are you ready to die?

This is one of best games ever created when you can play it in a full co-op mode. I remember co-op each life is taken seriously since everything is lost on death so each person must survive long enough to use certain objects when you find out where they go.

A similar co-op mode would make it one of the best games on steam too!

This game is a classic and an amazing game at that. It's doom with medieval themes, melee combat, and magic. The levels can be a little confusing sometimes but that is just a minor setback. The level design is really good and the level system goes by hubs which can have many portals, that take you to different areas of the map. All and all i would say it is worth the money.
