GT website (Saturn release):
    Hexen, the widely popular PC game, has come home to Sega Saturn to cast a haunting spell of highly-realistic 3D action and adventure on gamers. While you were battling the evil forces of D'Sparil, the other Serpent Riders were busy sowing the seeds of destruction in other dimensions. One such dimension is the decaying world where Hexen takes place.

    A world littered with the mangled corpses of nonbelievers. Only three humans - a warrior, a mage and a cleric - have escaped the leader's vicious spell. Now these three brave souls have sworn to crush the evil regime that threatens to destroy the world forever.

    Features:

    · Become one of 3 heroes. Wield superhuman powers and lethal weapons.

    · Walk. Run. Fly. Look all around. Inflict serious pain.

    · Pillage your way through earthquakes, crumbling bridges and fog.

    · Track down powerful artifacts and cast wicked spells.

www.nintendo.com – Nintendo 64:
    GT Interactive's foreboding adventure blends Doom-style brawling with puzzles and mazes worthy of a master sorcerer. You'll need to muster all your action, RPG and tournament-fighting skills before you plunge into this brooding netherworld festering with ghastly beasts.

    Thirty-one levels guarantee a long day's journey into the night. Before entering Hexen, you'll pick a character from three different classes -- Fighter, Cleric and Mage -- each of which has special strengths and weaknesses. Once inside the belly of the beast, you'll be in for a stained-glass-smashing, flask-guzzling good time. Conserve your energy and seek out armor and advanced weaponry. And save your game often with your Controller Pak. Ettins, Afrits and other things that go chomp in the night lurk around every dank corner!

    Hexen's multiplayer capabilities set it apart from earlier first-person shooters. As many as four can work together in Cooperative mode, but we're betting that Deathmatch, which also supports as many as four players, generates a far higher body count. Novel power-ups include the Dark Servant, which creates a short-fused bodyguard who will rage against your enemies for 30 seconds, and the Circe-like Porkelator, which enswines minor monsters. Ahh, nothing like a bit of dungeon humor!

Back of Box - DOS (European):
    Representing a quantum leap in realism, bursting at the seams with playability and bulging interactivity, Hexen is a spellbinding and terrifying epic that pits its players as one of the three classes of hero and sets them on a nightmarish knife-edge quest to destroy the evil rulers who once controlled them. Every part of this colossal battle between horrific creatures is waged with one of 12 death dealing weapons, either alone or in "co-operative" or "Deathmatch" networked play. Pretenders to the throne beware: - id Software and Raven have joined forces again to create this masterpiece of the 3D dynasty.
