Very fun and the puzzles are relatively easy and logical. The dialogs are funny and good for learning Cockney English... so that's a plus!

This review is for the series as a whole. Hector: Badge of Carnage is a point & click game, the style and humour of the game isn't for everyone, frequently being offensive and vulgar but never the less i found it hilarious. I think you'll either love it or you'll hate it, so be warned. The player takes control of Hector a drunk, mean, unclassy detective, that happens to be quite good at his job, to save the town Clapper's Wreake from a terrorist attack.

Unfortunatly there isn't really much replay value, but what's there story/graphics/voice acting etc is great for the type of game.

7/10

Hector: Badge of Carnage is a crass revival of the Point & Click genre. Raunchy and amazing toilet humour in the most British of ways is the order of the day with these titles, and it's everything an (im)mature young adult could possibly want. Heartily recommend he whole series, Detective Inspector Hector has become one of my personal heroes.

Pretty fun point&click adventure really, yet it feels a bit of unrewarding - it's a series of one liner jokes, while good ones the story doesn't feel cohesive. I give this a slight no recommendation on based my personal gaming taste, I only finished one episode of the three and didn't have motivation to carry on so in some ways i didn't like it enough. On the other hand if you'd like a point&click adventure that doesn't take it too seriously and some funny jokes along the line - Hector: Badge of Carnage is a pretty decent choice.

Note that even if the title says "Hector: Episode 3", the review is for the full 3-episode series.

Detective Inspector Hector is sort of like The Dude. He's the right man for his place and time. Hector is a cop in the degenerate town of Clappers Wreake, a place which has so abandoned the notion of anything wholesome that the street out front of the police station itself features ♥♥♥♥♥s, drunks, and looting.

And so the story is set in motion: a sniper appears in a window in town, gunning down police and boasting a roomful of hostages. Hector is called to the scene to deliver his unique brand of justice, only to be set on a series of errands for the mysterious gunman who claims only to have the betterment of Clappers Wreake at heart.

Hector is fat, blunt, rude, an alcoholic, and not a connoisseur of self-respect. He's every ounce as much of a degenerate as the rest of the population, but he's smarter than a good deal of them, and he's willing to do what it takes to save the day. For... well, some reason or other, anyways.

Hector: Badge of Carnage contains a lot of crude humor. The first screen of the first game involves fishing in a disgusting toilet with a used condom. But there's an interesting wit about it - particularly in Hector's observations on the situation. Yeah, this series is for the immature, through and through. But it's a sarcastic immaturity that's aware of its actions, and doesn't just settle for, "Look, poop, ha ha!" as an entire joke.

The voicework is not a highlight. The first game sounds as though it's voiced entirely by one guy speaking into his laptop's built-in microphone. The second game adds a genuine female voice to the cast, but that's still only two voices, seemingly digitally altered to sound more diverse. At the very least, the delivery's good, so it's nothing that'll ruin your experience.

On the whole, the puzzles are decent enough. The third game has a habit of making new elements appear in locations you've already visited, and then not alerting you to them, so that you have to stumble across them in a fit of random, confused wandering. But overall, I like Hector: Badge of Carnage. And if, like me, you're both an adventure game fan and a scumbag, then you probably will, too.
