HASH(0xa4578288) out of 5 stars Hexen 64: An Underappreciated Gem April 1 2009
By Ross - Published on Amazon.com
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.
HASH(0xa43bba50) out of 5 stars Hexen........ April 27 2016

For those of you unfamiliar with Hexen, it got it's start with a game called Heretic. Heretic was an RPG-themed take on the FPS game or a medieval take on Doom, so to speak. When Heretic came out, it was dubbed 'the first Doom clone' and with good reason as id Software was involved with the making of the game. Hexen is the sequel to that game.

The game centers around one of three characters; Baratus, a warrior, Daedolon, a mage, and Parias, a cleric. The three of them are what stands as the last hope for the world Hexen, a human planet in the dimension of Cronos which has fallen under a deviously evil spell cast by three corrupt warlords. At the heart of all this lies Korax, the second of three Serpent Riders (the first you've already slain in the game Heretic, if you've played that game). While you're given a choice of three character classes to play: Cleric, Mage or Warrior; each of these classes plays a little differently, with the warrior being stronger, faster, and lacking in magical attacks; the mage is weaker but he has far-ranging magical attacks that allow him to keep his distance from enemies; and the cleric is a mix of the two. Other than it's character classes, Hexen differentiates itself from Doom by it's levels that you must come back to after you've solved puzzles or found an acquired item. Another thing that differentiates itself from Doom 64 is the fact that you can jump in this game(one of the things I mentioned would have benefitted Doom 64 greatly) which makes it a step between Doom 64 and Quake. An added plus to the game is the fact you get multiplayer with this game.

While Hexen is a brilliant game with all it's puzzles and the fact it's not your run of the mill run and gun shooter, the Nintendo 64 isn't without some glaring flaws. First is it's frame rate. It can be sluggish at times depending on what's going on onscreen. Second is it's control, especially when you're jumping from one ledge to another.

In my opinion, Hexen is-indeed- an underrated gem. Sure, it may be ugly looking at times...slow..and even looking it's age but it's an entertaining experience just the same. Thanks to this game, I actually looked up Hexen II and gave it a look. Don't let what you hear or read about the game fool you, Hexen delivers a fun time.

HASH(0xa4237c24) 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.
HASH(0xa4047444) out of 5 stars Hexen has some of the best 4-player gameplay I've ever seen! June 25 2012

I am a big multiplayer person. Every time I go to a used game store i always look for a game that either I've heard of or has multiplayer. Once I found on YouTube that this game had 4-player co-op (obviously locally because this isn't a PC or Xbox 360), I had to pick this game up. Once I found this for a decent price of 5 bucks, I immediately clicked buy, and boy am I glad I did. Now I have never tried out 4-player co-op completely, but I have actually plugged in 4 controllers and it looks amazing. Now I know some people have said never to try this because of "Blurred graphics and limited view," but I don't care! All I care about in a game is gameplay, sound, controls, multiplayer, and music. The controls I had to get used to, but it wasn't horrible or impossible. The sound effects are awesome and the music is also better than the PC version. The game does have difficult puzzles but they are not impossible and the enemies are really awesome. I have played co-op and deathmatch with 2 players and I can say that the game has amazing multiplayer. If you are a really big multiplayer fan and would like to play a game that has co-op and deathmatch and also is good by yourself, I recommend buying this game.
HASH(0xa4528684) out of 5 stars Excellent Port to an Underrated Treasure!! March 22 2012
By Classic GameFan1991 - Published on Amazon.com
One must keep in the mind the N64's memory limitations with cartridges, and I must say that this is the best port of Hexen I have come across. Sure, there were no improvements with the graphics, but graphics aren't everything. The game plays great with a very good, consistent framerate, and the lighting is very good, despite some complaints about that, and the game plays as well as the PC version, and this is perfect if you don't want to mess with trying to get the game working on the computer, as that requires one to download Dosbox, and fiddle with its settings to get the game working right, it isn't a real pain, its just somewhat time consuming, and this is a great alternative to that. This port is not meant to "improve" from the PC version, it is meant to be a direct port to open console gamers to this classic game, and that is what it does. I highly recommend this game, and whether you get it on the PC or N64, you will not be disappointed if you enjoy classic FPS games with an RPG twist.
