5.0 out of 5 stars What? It's not bad... Oct. 19 2000
By Eric Mekkelsen - Published on Amazon.com
Remembering lemings..?..the great fun you would have..but the graphics.... Yes I admit this game could do alittle upbeating to it's gfx. All and all this game is great for those who love puzzles and shot'em up's. It's like "Goldeneye" sorta. You have objectives (unclear in this) you do the objectives a new objective come's. When you complete an objective in this, it opens new worlds and doors in different levels..I love this game!... Great sounds and music. Poor pixelation (who cares!?- you put up with doom). Great Game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hexen 64: An Underappreciated Gem April 1 2009
By Ross - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have to disagree with John L. completely.

The N64 transfer of Hexen was great. As far as I know, the main game is functionally identical to the PC version. I am not aware of any missing characters, weapons, items, or levels from the PC original. Pleasantly surprising in and of itself, compared to most PC ports of the time, which usually had missing or redesigned levels.

Furthermore, the programmers of the N64 port actually made some very cool exclusive additions (besides the little paragraphs between levels). For example, it has a custom soundtrack remix. In my opinion, this remix is superior to the PC version.

More importantly, it has support for four player split-screen deathmatch or co-op on a single console. Hexen 64 was the first console FPS to implement this. 4P co-op was groundbreaking for the time, and a feature that is still somewhat uncommon on console FPSs today (via split-screen, or even system link for that matter). 4P co-op FPS play on one PC is nearly unheard of, and to even have 4P co-op play via LAN/Internet on Hexen PC would probably require a mod.

Also, while it is cool that they've added better lighting and 3D models to the PC version source port, it's also worth noting that these are fan-created modifications. This port was made years later than the original game, and it's not even authorized by Raven Software. Judging the N64 version's graphics by this port would be sort of like condemning the original Mac version of Marathon: Durandal because the graphics are not as good as the HD remix for Xbox Live Arcade.

3.0 out of 5 stars PC version is better Sept. 17 2008
By John L. - Published on Amazon.com
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Hexen is a brilliant game, but its N64 transfer is not.

In fact, the only thing praise worthy of the N64 conversion is the nice little paragraphs you get when traveling from one level to another. These little descriptions of where your going are not available in the PC version.

Otherwise, Hexen 64 is a terrible mock up of what is a brilliant game on PCs today. Yes its dated, but many people have taken the source code and made it a much more enjoyable experience with better controls, lighting effects, and so on.

The only reason you should buy this, as far as Hexen fans are concerned, is the ease of having a multiplayer match.

If you've never played Hexen before, buy the PC version, go to [...] and download the source port there that allows smoother graphics, 3D model support, lighting effects, and more. This is the Hexen we die-hards know and love

In fact, you should also look into [...] for the single greatest Hexen MOD there is. It really takes the game to a whole new level.

3.0 out of 5 stars not the best or worst corridor shooter April 11 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Hexen 64 might not be the best Hexen game there is, but it's not as bad as most people say it is. The graphics are definitely subpar when compared to other Nintendo 64 corridor shooters because they're pixelated when you get close to the walls and other objects. The sound is decent, but nothing special.
The gameplay might not compare to others such as Goldeneye or Doom 64, but it's not that bad. It's fun to play 2-player and try to get through the levels. The control is also good. Hexen 64 isn't at the top rank of the corridor shooters, but it's not the worst that's ever been made.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy this game! Dec 10 1999

This game is bad, simply bad. The graphics are either too fuzzy or too pixilated. The gameplay is awkward, and the sound is uninteresting. I bought this game thinking it would be similar to the PC version, I was sorely mistaken. Don't make my mistake if you're interested in this type of game get the PC version of the sequel.
