VGChartz
24 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Welcome to the world of Glory of Heracles, you are the titular Heracles, the son of the god Zeus and beautiful Alcmene; mighty, courageous and intelligent are the words that best describe you. You stand valiantly against the forces of darkness and are charged with spending your immortal life defending both the heavens above and the people below… well, maybe.

Glory of Heracles – Staff Review

RandomNPC
13 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Over the course of the last decade or so, North America has seen a remarkable influx of games and series which, in the past, had been exclusive to the east. From Shin Megami Tensei to Fire Emblem , the widening acceptance of gaming in general has allowed for a much broader cross-section of Japanese gaming to be seen on our shores. However, there still remain a number of long running series which have yet to make the jump across the pond.

A not so glorious role-playing game.

  • Conclusion: The Nintendo DS is home to some heavy hitters in the classic role-playing genre, many of which would be better options than Glory of Heracles. There isn't anything fundamentally bad about this RPG, and it does present itself in a fairly stress free manner. It meets expectations, but never strives to impress. And that leaves it with long stretches of gameplay that would best be described as simply boring.

Glory of Heracles Review

28 January 2010
  • Summary: Glory of Heracles marks the US debut of a long-running Japanese RPG series. It's definitely got an old-school feel to it, but is that to its detriment?
  • Pros: Classic RPG gameplay, Diverse collection of magic and skills, Unique Greek setting
  • Cons: Classic RPG gameplay...to a fault, Slow start and sluggish pace, Uninvolving characters

  • Excerpt: Стереть герою память – чем не удобный способ обосновать, почему отныне воину в самом расцвете сил придется заново учиться азам ведения сражений и осваивать простейшие заклинания? Один минус – очень уж подобный прием приелся даже тем, кто с японскими RPG знаком весьма поверхностно. Более того, расставшись с древнегреческим багажом, Glory of Heracles только выиграла бы.
