From the previous review should be clear: I just like the game. This is probably not only connected with my preference for the Sixties (and also Seventies). Because the advantages, like the extreme lovingly design, numerous and varied locations, suspense, a varied story with many twists and turns, a lot of interesting puzzles and not least originality in this graphically very independent game, completely outweigh the few weaknesses. Since these can however actually be reduced to only one - some few not always comprehensible puzzles - I can nothing but give a high rating. Some players may have another opinion because of the sometimes brutal pictures.

Si vous avez envie de vous plonger dans un comic de qualité, dessiné à la main, animé par celluloïds, et que vous n'avez pas une âme trop sensible, Hopkins vous ravira, sachant de plus être un vrai bon jeu d'aventure « à la Sierra », même si les énigmes restent assez conventionnelles. Un petit bijou, hélas un peu court, à ne pas mettre entre toutes les mains, cependant, tant la violence est brutalement affichée.

Moja ocena "Hopkins FBI" urodziła się kilku elementów. Wszystko napisałem w recenzji, ale ostatnim plusem o którym nie wspomniałem jest cena gry, a wynosi ona cos około 70 zł. W dobie zdzierania z nas graczy kasy to cieszy i dlatego "HOPKINS FBI" otrzymuje 8/10 pkt.

Overall I really enjoyed this game. If you are a fan of the classic Police Quest games, don't miss this one. It has some great funny parts and a nice interface that won't drive you up the wall. It's too bad all of the music wasn't as good as those few tracks with vocals, but I guess a rip is a rip and usually music is the first to die.

Autant dire que si vous êtes friand d'hémoglobine vous allez être servi. Assurément, certains seront outrés par de telles scènes de violence. D'autres, en revanche, se prendront au jeu, et apprécieront la qualité du scénario. Car oui, bon scénario il y a.

Op het eerste gezicht lijkt Hopkins FBI op een standaard point-and-click adventure dat ze vijf jaar geleden vergeten zijn te releasen. Maar al snel komt het cultelement en de harde, maar zeer aangename humor boven drijven. Als je eens wat anders zoekt en niet vies bent van een gezond potje bloed en gapende schotwonden, zit je met deze game goed.

I would not hesitate to recommend Hopkins FBI to a true adventure fan. I do not know if there is to be a US release as Kult never answers any of my emails, but you can order the game from their web site. Be forewarned, though: it is not for youngsters, nor is it for impressionable individuals who are upset by graphic images of violence and nudity. Kult does hint at a sequel on its site. I do hope that the follow-up sticks more to the realistic atmosphere that was so well-done in the first half of the game and leaves the surrealistic elements of the second part of the story to the comic books.

Hopkins FBI is a British game that got virtually no distribution in North America. I recommend it to adventure players who feel like something a bit different. It's also available in Linux, which may be of interest to devotees of that alternate operating system.
WindowsQuandary (Apr, 1999)
Needless to say, Hopkins FBI is not a pure adventure, fans of traditional adventures should play it at their peril. Although the puzzles and problems are entertaining and backed up by a good interface that allows intricate exploration, they don't hold much challenge. If it wasn't for the action elements maybe I would recommend this game for easy-going adventure players who hate to be stuck, but I find it difficult to recommend any game that dines out on sex and violence

Hopkins FBI is a very strange little game from England that’s virtually unknown in North America. This is a shame, for although it’s certainly not for everyone, it’s a twisted little gem that could be a real guilty pleasure for a lot of players.
WindowsPC Player (Germany) (Jul, 1998)
Spielerische Defizite stoßen aber noch viel mehr auf. Die Grafik ist recht urzeitlich geraden und deshalb stimmungsdämpfend. Die eigentlichen Rätsel beschränken sich meist darauf, alle Bildschirme pixelgenau abzusuchen, bis endlich auch der letzte wichtige Gegenstand gefunden wurde. Die bei alten Sierra-Titeln abgekupferte Steuerung ist umständlich und nervig.
WindowsAventura y Cía (Aug 14, 2001)
Hopkins FBI es una aventura que no enseña nada nuevo. Solo es recomendable para los que no sepan que aventura jugar, ya que aunque el juego sea malo, la historia esta bien. Eso sí, cuando veaís el final, os sentireís muy decepcionados.
WindowsPC Action (Aug 19, 1998)
Hopkins FBI sieht aus, als ob es schon etliche Jährchen auf dem Buckel hätte. Durch die zahlreichen ultrabrutalen Cutscenes werden zudem die Grenzen des guten Geschmacks mehr als deutlich überschritten.
WindowsPC Games (Germany) (Aug 05, 1998)
Sicherlich weist die Agentengeschichte auch einige Lichtblicke auf, denn die Dialoge mit anderen Personen überlassen Ihnen bei der Auswahl der Fragen und Antworten oft den Freiraum für wirklich witzige Reaktionen. Im ganzen betrachtet wird Hopkins FBI jedoch auf keinen Fall einem spannenden und witzigen Detektivabenteuer gerecht. Spiele wie Baphomets Fluch oder BladeRunner bieten einen vielfachen Spielspaß und kosten auch nur ein paar Mark mehr.
