Glory of Heracles

Family Friendly Gaming
24 September 2013
  • Excerpt: Not only do I write review for Family Friendly Gaming, but I love seeing the various games that are covered. I was eager to play and review Glory of Heracles. I had to purchase the game myself since one did not come in. I am a bit of a Nintendo fanboy, and the editors keep that in mind when I review a Nintendo game. I have to admit that I am very disappointed with Glory of Heracles. Players take on the role of Heracles who is the illegitimate son of Zeus.

  • Conclusion: Glory of Heracles is a tough call to make. It would be an impressive role-playing game if it was released on a system with little genre support, but the Nintendo DS isn't wanting for fantastic RPGs. Even the handheld's more traditional RPGs, like Dragon Quest IV and Dragon Quest V have a unique character that carries the games' shortcomings.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: 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. When I saw Glory of Heracles being showcased at E3 2009 as an upcoming release, I couldn't hide my smile. You see, the Glory of Heracles series is one of a select few series of Japanese RPGs that fit both of the following two criteria: 1) none of its games had come to North America, and 2) they are really...

  • Conclusion: Glory of Heracles is a nice addition to any classic RPG library. Though it suffers from some of the typical shortcomings of classic RPGs, it's still a solid experience with enjoyable combat and a decent story to boot. If you're into classic RPGs and/or don't mind stepping back into some randomized battles, the game is well worth the price of $29.99. Otherwise, look for a more modern RPG.
