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.

Traditional RPG features lots of mild fantasy combat.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Glory of Heracles is a standard turn-based role-playing game. It tells a story about a fight between good and evil and contains age-appropriate narrative. Fantasy combat plays a large role (most of the game is spent in battle), but attacks involve flashes of light rather than buckets of gore, making them pretty easy to stomach. Mild profanity (“hell” and “damn”) is present but used sparingly and only for dramatic effect.

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.
