An inmate Bernie Berckson escapes the death penalty after nuking parts of the United States, special agent Hopkins is called in to capture Bernie.


Unfortunately Bernie won’t go quietly, so he starts a crime spree with bank robberies and murders in search for revenge. The missions you will be up against are everything from murders to terrorists.

Hopkins FBI is similar to the Police Quest series, but instead of standard computer graphics many scenes and characters are drawn like comic books. Also much of the story resembles a comic book story.

The game itself is like any other adventure game. That is you go around try to solve some problems, collect things and clues. As you gather clues something new will happen and the game continues in that fashion. Controlling the game is a piece of cake if you have played games like Myst, Police Quest or Sam & Max Hit The Road.

When talking to people in Hopkins FBI you are presented with a number of things you can say or ask. If there is some kind of situation the conversation is usually about it. The speech is presented in text and sound, which is nice compared to older adventure games where there is just text.

During the game calls will come in for you to get to a bank robbery or something similar. The scenes you are presented with can be very cruel, especially when there is a serial killer on the loose. Hopkins FBI shows a lot of dead bodies, often-young women, this game is definitely not for kids or teens.

Much of Hopkins FBI is actually talking to people. Sure there are some action elements, for example you have to get your gun from the inventory and shoot someone or disarm a bomb. But the action situations don’t feel as real as in the Police Quest –series. Hopkins FBI appears to have been developed without any advice from police officers.

The environments vary greatly and ranges from Hopkins apartment to an underwater submarine base. It’s pretty cool to see how they manage to tie the advanced story to the game.

Sometimes the character Hopkins feels a bit too stiff, he doesn’t seem to have any sort of personality or feelings for that matter. It’s probably done on purpose. I must say that I enjoy adventure games where the character has feelings a lot better.

Overall Hopkins FBI is a good adventure game, it’s a bit graphic and Hopkins himself feels a bit like a robot sometimes. However if you liked the Police Quest series you should give this game a go.
