Excerpt: Hector: Badge of Carnage Episode 2: Senseless Acts of Justice is the second episode of Hector: Badge of Carnage trilogy from Irish developer Straandlooper Animation. Once again, the episode sees Hector indulge in an orgy of sleaze, destruction, foul language, and general filth as he continues his assault on common decency in the name of law and order.
Conclusion: For the most part, Senseless Acts of Justice is more of the same great material we saw in the first episode. The game is a little bit longer this time around, but only a little, and the simplicity of many puzzles means that seasoned players will likely breeze through the majority of the adventure. It’s worth taking your time to explore the many optional dialogues, however, as the series continues to be as funny as it is dirty and inappropriate.
Summary: Even as games grow edgier with the times, most gamemakers seem to shy away from poking at certain boundaries of common decency. In crafting its crass new point-and-click adventure game trilogy, developer Straandlooper sheds caution as if it were a vile, fluid-stained trench coat and runs streaking across the line like a howling naked lunatic.
Pros: Seedy, hand-drawn art direction is slick, Improved hint and map system helps the adventure's flow, Clever puzzles are witty and disgusting
Cons: Crude humor occasionally falls flat, Story not as good as that in first episode
