Summary: In just three short outings, the Hector: Badge of Carnage series has established itself as a delightfully deranged and wickedly entertaining mature adventure game series.

Pros: Memorable art style and characters, Accessible hint system lets you scale the challenge as needed, Gross puzzles are fun and freaky
Cons: The settings aren't as diverse as in past installments
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.

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
The first installment of Hector: Badge of Carnage is a crass and creative detective adventure.
