Imagine being so stupid you can't figure out video games that were made over two decades ago. You're still thinking about how to outsmart the enemies themselves and not the jackass that placed them. You're never gonna make it at this rate.

Pretty great game, one of my favorite FPS's. I find the combat is way more satisfying than Heretic. All the enemies feel bullet-spongey in that game. All you need in Hexen is one or two hammer hits and they're dead.
And of course the puzzley nature makes it stand out, it just feels different from standard Doom-clone key hunting. Some of the level design / puzzles are bullshit I must admit though.
Hexen 2 is fantastic as well. Kind of like Quake compared to Doom, there are fewer enemies but they're beefier and more threatening. Even the Archer grunts can fuck you up if you're not dodging and crouching to avoid their arrows. I like how the puzzles are less arbitrary switch hunts and more like actual puzzles, even if again a couple are just bullshit. And the art is fantastic, just goes to show the Quake engine doesn't have to be brown.
Nah mate. Ive played it on both sourceports and the original DOS (well, through DOSBOX, but you know). It always gives at least some sort of hint on where a door opened.

>finally try out hexen after being put off by the tales of nightmarish switch hunting
>try out mage thinking he'll have some badass arcane magics
>start off with a water gun
>first new attack is the lamest shit

Damn that. We fighter now. This is much better. The switch hunting isn't too bad so far, I just finished the swamp area of the Shadow Wood. My memory is good so I have a good idea of what to backtrack to and where things were when I saw them. This first person platforming over instant death falls is fucking horrible though. I have to save scum for this shit after every jump. What were they thinking?

Caldera was one of my favorites on native Hexen. Source ports didn't run it perfectly, if I remember right. Still worth checking out, if only for the laughable Korax impression.
