The Heroes Are Alright

RPGamer
19 August 2012
  • Excerpt: On the surface Heroes of Ruin doesn't appear to have a lot going for it. A third person looter for the Nintendo 3DS and veteran developer n-Space's biggest project to date, its look and feel aren't particularly original, and neither is its story at first.

3 August 2012
  • Excerpt: As developer n-Space does not tire of reminding us, Heroes of Ruin goes out of its way to make use of nearly every element in the 3DS' feature-set. The result is an action-RPG that certainly looks complete on paper.

Heroes of Ruin Review: Pioneering and looting on the 3DS

17 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Ambitious is a good word to describe Heroes of Ruin. When I first previewed the game, a member of n-Space’s design team was there to tell me all about the long list of firsts it would be bringing to Nintendo’s handheld such as voice chat and drop-in-drop-out online co-op, features we have yet to see...

Bringing Hack-And-Slash To The Handheld

Game Informer
29 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Concept: Bring a lootfest to the handheld space with as few apologies as possible Graphics: The muddy visuals make it look more like a DS game than a 3DS game.

Heroes of Ruin review

Gameplanet
4 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Heroes of Ruin only partly delivers on its goal to fill a hole in the lives of 3DS gamers, offering smooth and entertaining multiplayer, but falling short in other fields.
  • Pros: Quality multiplayer functionality. A fair amount of replayability. Mechanics are functional and easy to understand.
  • Cons: Bad, low-stakes storytelling abounds. Repetitive maps. Middling graphics. Insufficiently challenging.
