Over dit spel

Terwijl jij de kwaadaardige strijdkrachten van D'sparil aan het bevechten was, waren de andere Serpent Riders bezig met het verspreiden van vernietiging in andere dimensies. Een van deze dimensies is de aftakelende wereld waar Hexen zich afspeelt. Een wereld bezaait met de verminkte lijken van ongelovigen en bewoond door de ondode volgelingen die hen hebben vermoord. Maar drie mensen &endash; een krijger, een magiër en een geestelijke &endash; zijn de achterbakse spreuk van de leiders ontsnapt. Nu hebben deze drie dappere zielen gezworen het kwade regime te bestrijden dat de wereld voor altijd dreigt te vernietigen. Na het betreden van het mystieke portaal zijn de drie nu opgesplitst en moeten ze alleen de taak volbrengen die zij hadden gehoopt samen te doen: de vesting van Korax vinden, hem vernietigen en orde terugbrengen naar de echte wereld.

  • Speel als één van 3 helden. Hanteer bovenmenselijke krachten en dodelijke wapens.
  • Loop. Ren. Vlieg. Zie alles om je heen. Sla je vijanden in elkaar.
  • Plunder een weg door aardbevingen, instortende bruggen en mist.
  • Spoor machtige relieken op en betover je vijanden met waanzinnige magie.
  • Vier personen kunnen samen grootse vernieling aanrichten via een netwerk, twee via de modem.

HeXen: Beyond Heretic, or as I prefer to call it, "WHERE THE F**K AM I GOING" is a game that is quite a long way ahead of it's time. I suspect this is the first game to allow you to freely come and go between levels (once you unlock them, of course), much like you can in games like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (although slightly unlike Castlevania, it has a hub world). The gameplay is, well, imagine doom with more melee weapons, and magic instead of guns. It's kick-♥♥♥♥. It's fast-paced, difficult, murderous fun, however it is not entirely without its flaws.

I very strongly reccomend you download a mod called Zandronum, along with downloading novert, as these give proper mouse-look (well, you can't look up and down, but the game is designed with that in mind, so it's not an issue), along with letting you customise controls and increasing the resolution of the textures, unless you're nostalgic for graphics that, in all honesty, have aged poorly. Also, the level designers seemed to have a raging hard-on for levels with poor lighting.

However, in spite of all that, plus it's insanely easy to get lost, I have to reccomend this game. The gameplay is, as you can tell from the screenshots, DOOM in a fantasy setting. You run around at mach 5 hitting ♥♥♥♥ with a lightning axe or shooting fire from your hands. Buy it, or buy the Hexen + Heretic bundle. If you like video games, fun and retro ♥♥♥♥-kicking action, you won't regret it.

Don't judge this game because it's old. It's a fun game, but it's really hard also.

Still fun to play.

This game is not for people who have only played DOOM-cubed. This game is for people who played ClassicDOOM on DOS. Released during the same era of gaming, Hexen is, as the title suggests, the sequel to Heretic. I actually never played this in its heyday, so this is actually a new experience for me. I didn't understand the hub system when I was younger, so never actually touched Hexen until just recently.

In this game, instead of being just one "DOOMguy" or "Corvus/Hereticguy/FantasyDOOMguy," you can choose one of three classes: a Fighter, a Cleric, or Mage. Each have their strengths and weaknesses, and will actually use certain items/powerups in the game differently, most notably the Flechette. The demos that play if you don't create a new game are a bit misleading, as they suggest that each class has a different set of levels to playthrough. Or, they did for me anyway. I quickly figured out that is not the case, and was a little disappointed at first, but quickly got over it. Now that I'm older, I understand the Hub system better and am able to navigate through the levels easier. One thing I would stress: explore everywhere. Don't leave any portion of your maps blank if you can help it. Some important switches are hidden in easily-disregarded places, and you will find yourself stuck if you don't throw/flip them.

People looking for "new and exciting ame mechanics" will likely be very disappointed. As far as I know, this particular iteration of a hub system has not been recreated for any other (popular) FPS-type game outside the Heretic franchise. But, if you played these games and similar during their heyday, I would highly recommend getting them for a trip down Memory Lane.

(Also, the price of these games in the bundle can't be beat. Ten bucks for four games? That's $2.50 USD per game!)

I recommend not purshasng any of these games. First of all, the dosbox that is in the folder is way out of date. You'll most likey have to alter the .config text to get these games to work. It really sucks becuase these are great games. Steam dropped the ball on these hard

This is a good game that happens to use an outdated executable. The most desirable way to play this game is to delete dosbox.exe, download a source port such as gzdoom, and then rename gzdoom.exe(or whatever the executable is named as) to dosbox.exe. And then you should be able to play the game flawlessly while still being tied with Steam(logging hours and showing that you're playing the game).
