Why do people keep saying Hexen 2 sucks? I thought it was a pretty good game, especially with the greek/mexican/egyptian themed hubs that changed the game's scenery continuously enough to prevent it from starting to look dry (a problem which plagues Doom and Quake in particular, but also Heretic, Hexen, Marathon, etc. to a lesser extent).
I'll still agree that the original Hexen was an overall better game. I mean, was the leveling-up feature in Hexen 2 really necessary? It kind of comes off as an attempt at an RPG/FPS hybrid rather than an FPS with an original theme, which is more detrimental than beneficial IMO.
Heretic 2, on the other hand, is a different story altogether XP
