  7. Hexen: Beyond Heretic DEMO

    This is a 4-level demo of the new action-adventure Hexen: Beyond Heretic, the sequel to the original Heretic first-person action-adventure. Besides the storyline, the major differences between Heretic and Hexen are numerous.

    * Three character classes: Fighter, Cleric and Mage. At the start of your adventure, you choose which class you want to play through the entire game of Hexen. In multiplayer mode, you can choose which character you want to use to either inflict punishment (Deathmatch) or to help your comrades through the adventure (Cooperative).

    The Fighter's weapons are mostly close-combat weapons, but he does the most damage with his attacks.

    The Cleric has two close-combat weapons and two long-range weapons since he is a hybrid of the Fighter and Mage classes.

    The Mage has four long-range magical attacks. This is the best character for you if you are better at attacking from a distance.

    * No sequential level-to-level game progression. For instance, the second level (Seven Portals) contain the gateways to the other three levels in the first "hub" of the game. You will revisit Seven Portals many times before you complete Hexen's first hub area. When you are on one level, you can pull a switch and open doors or raise stairs on a different level to unlock the continuation of your quest.

    * Rich audio environment. Hexen has a dark, brooding background soundtrack to create a subtly disquieting mood while you listen to animals scrabbling around on rocks, birds screeching or the ambient soundscape of a swamp. All this combined with the enemy's audio cues create a rich aural experience while you journey through the dark, dangerous world of Hexen.

    * Large range of artifacts. Many of Heretic's artifacts are here along with many new ones that prove to be quite interesting in a Deathmatch situation! Sure, Heretic was great fun with the Morph Ovum, but have you ever seen a flying pig? You Will. And we will be the ones to bring it to you with the Porkelator!

    * Awesome visual effects. Slog your way through a real swamp, complete with a haze of white fog and swamp gas clouds cruising over the ooze. Twin parallaxing cloud sky backdrops. A crowd of bats blasting into your face as you prepare to descend into a network of caves. These and many other effects will surprise and awe you with their brilliance.

    This demo is multiplayer capable. Use the DM program to initiate a multiplayer game. Please read DM.DOC for details.

    Enjoy the demo. Then rush out and get the game when it hits the stores! You won't be sorry. But your friends will be when they think they can take you on in a Deathmatch and they find a Maulotaur you just summoned bashing their brains into the dirt with you laughing at them behind its back.

      What I disliked: The 64/PSX (whatever) sounds, the lack of ammo, the unrewarding secrets, the recoiling of weapons and the "new" translucent Imps. I especially disliked the atmosphere - my eyes were hurting after Map 04. Almost every button you activate will spawn monsters coming out of the woodwork.    I DID like the Mapsets, though. It's unfortunate that the atmosphere ruined them for me.   This game should've been called "Spectre" 'cause there were more of them than every other monster in the game. Again, the gloomy atmosphere made them especially annoying.   I've read the sequel to this WAD is much better...but for this one, it just wasn't fun for me.   1 1/2 Stars out of 5

      Layout is superb, difficulty is hellish. Would be perfect final level, because as pistol start is way too hard. However i'm finishing it on UV without freelook, jumping or any other cheats.

      Cool circular layout and a very high level of detail. Gameplay provides a fun challenge and none of it feels like a chore. 4/5

      Fun stuff. Visuals, gameplay, music selection, it's all there :D

      Impressive visuals and scale for its time. Epic memes are thankfully limited to secret areas. map04/final quarter stretch is extremely cheeseable compared to the rest. Plenty of time spent cleaning up turret enemies. 3/5
