Glory of Heracles (DS)

 

Glory of Heracles is a role-playing game promising to thrill you with the characters and locales of Greek mythology by featuring them in an original plot. Its gameplay mechanics are competent, highlighted by a unique magic-boosting system and good...

Glory of Heracles Review

 

A JRPG tale of Greek Mythology.

In summation, Glory of Heracles is a great RPG that I hope will sell well, allowing Nintendo and Paon to translate and release the rest of the series. It has some rough edges that I view more as quirks than actual faults. It might be an easy game, but...

Petty Gods, vengeful humans, toweringstructures and tragic tales of Greek mythology make for compelling setpieces, while the weapons and magic spells found in these classicstories can also result in compelling gameplay. Most gamers should bewell aware...

Big variety of skills, spells, and status effects; Oldschool RPG system with tried and true mechanics; Skill learning and spell casting system both drag on; Constant tutorial system frequently interrupts gameplay

Glory of Heracles

 

Glory of Heracles is the latest game in a series centering around the legendary Greek hero, but the first to make it outside of Japan. From what I understand, usually Heracles is the primary character, and while that's technically true this time around...

You should expect more from your immortal.

Solid story with some good twists ; Nice music and environments

Lack of creativity in gameplay

Stratos, Glory of Heracles has some fun in it. If you like old-school JRPG battle mechanics then the part of the game that most bored me isn't an issue. Glory of Heracles also had the misfortune of coming at the end of a major RPG kick I was on. Two...

Note: this review opens with a semi-lengthy history of the series and its key players. If you want to get to the review proper, skip to the first italicized subheading.

I worry that many RPG fans will pass over this game when, in actuality, they would really enjoy it if they gave it a chance. This linear adventure is relatively short (took me 20 hours with generally under-leveled characters). It's just the right size...

Besting this generic role-playing game's pushover difficulty and humdrum gameplay is no heroic task.

Good boss fights ; Interesting ether system ; Lots of customization options

Lack of challenge trivializes tactical options ; Repetitive battle minigames ; Limited exploration

Glory of Heracles

 

Glory of Heracles for the DS tells the tale of a legendary hero by the name of Heracles, although you might know him better by his more common name, "Hercules." The game chronicles the life of Heracles after he's stricken with amnesia and thrown down...

The game starts off very promising with an animated intro that's reminiscent of many anime TV shows' intros. You're launched into the story with a crash course tutorial that tells you what you'll need to know about the combat system whenever it's...

Glory of Heracles uses a lot of standard RPG elements, but two in particular don't seem to work very well together. First off the game is very linear. I mean, if you walk in the wrong direction the game tells you to go back. You can wander around if...

Glory of Heracles Nintendo DS Review

 

For the most part, the game's a solid RPG, just not a memorable one. Nintendo followed a mostly by the numbers set up with little innovation, so if you enjoy these types of adventures on a regular basis, most of it will feel familiar, starting with the...

Touch screen and face button controls, anime style intro, lots of monsters to kill, likeable characters

Too much Japanese RPG influence, excessive micro managing, too similar to other role-playing games

Glory of Heracles is a DS role-playing game set in ancient Greece. You play an amnesiac that washes up on the Island of Crete. As the story unfolds, you learn that the young man's not only immortal, but may also be the legendary hero known as Heracles....
