John Wick Hex Reviews - Good, but Could Have Been Better

First reviews of John Wick Hex, a turn-based strategy game from Bithell Games studios, appeared on the web. They show that the devs have created an interesting game that faithfully recreates the atmosphere of the movie prototype, although at the same time they did not avoid slips in several key elements.

According to the first reviews John Wick Hex turned out to be a good game, although not without issues.

Reviewers praise the interesting game mechanics, attractive graphics and storyline, which, although simple, fits well into the realities known from the film cycle. What is criticized is the small variety of animations and challenges and less than impressive AI, whose repetitiveness can be easily exploited by the player.

The review reveals a picture of a game with original ideas, which adapts the film license in an interesting way, but does not exploit its full potential. It's also a pity that we won't hear Keanu Reeves' voice in the game. All in all, John Wick Hex, despite its flaws, appears to be an interesting proposition not only for fans of the film series, but also for those looking for unusual turn-base title.

John Wick Hex debuted on November 8, this year. The game was released on PC and is available only through Epic Games Store.
