Heroes of Ruin

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Heroes of Ruin is the Diablo for the Nintendo 3DS. Square Enix did something Family Friendly Gaming has been asking for - for years. They made it less violent. Heroes of Ruin is also not as dark as the Diablo franchise.

Heroes of Ruin review

2 August 2012
  • Conclusion: Heroes of Ruin is simply a little rough around the edges. While one part of it is truly great (fun hacking and slashing and impressive online play) the rest suffers from not enough polish.

Heroes of Ruin (3DS) Review

411mania.com
18 July 2012
  • Summary: Overall, brings a needed genre to the system. However, it does it at the bare minimum needed. All the mechanics are there, but nothing is really added to set it apart from the other games in the genre. However, fans of the genre looking for something portable won’t be disappointed.

  • Conclusion: An uncreative, but dependable, handheld dungeon crawler that gets extra marks for providing proper online play on a Nintendo system.
  • Pros: Good variety of skills, lots of loot, solid online play.
  • Cons: Recycled dungeon rooms, by-the-numbers quests, very short, a bit bland.

Heroes of Ruin Review

Eurogamer
20 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Online gaming has never really been Nintendo's 'thing', has it? I sort of expect Miyamoto is still using dial-up at home. Even today, first-party support feels begrudging at best, most recently seen in the threadbare features of Mario Tennis Open.

Heroes of Ruin review: Diablo in the palm of your hands

CVG
18 June 2012
  • Summary: Numbers are terrible things. They float around, pretending they're bigger than other numbers and getting tangled in maths equations, but doing nothing truly useful. Numbers alone serve no purpose.
  • Pros: Addictive stat heavy gameplay, Punchy combat, Varied classes and abilities
  • Cons: Can feel like a slog at times
