“John Wick Hex”’ is not a normal shooter , and it should not be
If I had been asked how a John Wick video game would be like , I might not have come up with John Wick Hex, a top-down superhot action game that seems to be more like a puzzler than a shooter.
However , it makes sense, because a simple shooter game would not achieve John Wick justice. John Wick Hex presents the tactical judgement that Keanu Reeves as an action hero necessitates to be the deadly boogieman he is known to be, and in addition to work as an ingenious and funny , action and puzzle game.
Time is the key component in John Wick Hex , it doesn’t move unless Wick moves, kind of like in Super Hot game . After every move, you may take as long as you like to decide, of thousands of options , what the next move will be .
This character enables the players to embody John Wick without the long years of practice and experience Wick has had in beating up countless people all alone . You may take a breath and look around you , Wick’s professionalism is in seeing how many bullets are in the magazine, check every side , specify where enemies are looking, and then shot , one move at a time, discharge and charge the guns, to make it as successful as possible through the situation .
The top of the screen is a timeline. The top line presents Wick’s actions and how long they will take, proceeded by the nearest seeable enemy’s moves beneath , which permits players to see which option to make at every time freeze.
On the right are actions like shoots and kills, and on the bottom there are data show armory , focus, and posture (standing or crouched). Focus is important for actions, and to anew your focus you should take a couple of seconds to get back in the zone.
Once you comprehend these things, which happened really quickly , it’s all about moving through the levels one foot at a time and tactically killing every person in your way just like John Wick does in the trilogy.
To the extent the story goes , it’s not different from the movies. John Wick Hex is a prequel and involves the characters Winston (Ian McShane) and Charon (Lance Reddick), who are being held by a new antagonist. And as John Wick, you’re trying to find out a way to get to them. Just like him , you find yourself shooting and executing large groups of people in the way to your destination.
All the pass there’s a couple of surroundings and songs that would fit right in with the movies, from cool clubs to dark alleyways.
John Wick Hex is surprisingly hard. It is difficult to hide away exactly and heal yourself whenever you get a bullet, and the reload mechanic is very realistic , if you choose to recharge your gun, the bullets in your present magazine will be removed, just as if you switched out a magazine on a real gun.
Enemies don’t become less severe either, so you’ll have to be prepared all the time . I had to vary levels again and again to get through them without dying.
After All , I’m Not The Boogieman .
