North America Retail Box ArtUnited Kingdom Retail Box ArtConjuring up the best traditions of fantasy and adventure, Hexen II is a first-person adventure game which pitches you against the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Death, Pestilence, Famine and War and the least known Serpent Rider, Eidolon, the Archfiend.Play is as either the Necromancer, the Assassin, the Crusader or the Paladin. Each character has a different selection of weapons and skills to aid you on your quest to rid the Earth of evil, demanding a slightly different strategy for each one. In the spirit of fantasy, you are faced with a myriad of creatures on your journey, such as Imps, Golems and Mummies. Your path is also littered with artefacts to help you on your way.The game is simple to control and if you are an experienced first-person gamer, then Hexen II will look old. It doesn't, however, need a powerful computer to run, so is suitable for those with ageing machines. While some parts of it feel like a fantasy-based Doom shoot-'em-up, with basic a 3-D environment. The game also supports multiplayer games over a LAN or the Internet in several different modes.Hexen II will appeal to fantasy fanatics, but lacks the clout of newer first-person games. --Chris Hall
