Hector: Badge of Carnage has a very distinct feel to it. Not only does the game feel very old-school 2D adventure with a hand-drawn stlye to it, but it also feels very dirty as well. In fact, the only characters I would say feel "clean" in the whole game are Hector's fellow police officers. Each of the dozen or so other characters you will meet seem to fit right in with the grimy town.
Outside of Hector's distinct look is also the game's audio. While the background music is okay, its the game's voices that really stand out. Each of the voices seem to fit their various characters really well, and this is especially so for the game's titular character. Of course, he also gets some of the prime dialogue as well, and believe me, he is not a shining example of what a policeman should be ... but then again, all of those "typical" officers don't seem to be getting the job done.
