There are plenty of games that look amazing and play even better, but there aren’t that many that will make most people laugh out loud at so many different intervals. For that alone it should be pretty high on most people’s wish list.
The game’s only downfall is one that plagues a lot of point-and-click adventure games on the PC at the moment. With the increasing amount of touch interface devices in homes, such as iPhones, iPads and many others, the point-and-click adventure titles feels more at home on one of those than it does the PC. If you have an iPad, get Hector: Badge of Carnage for that. If all you’ve got is an iPhone, however, get it for the PC. The gorgeous visuals are too good looking to be constrained onto such a small screen.
