  • Summary: what should have been DLC at half the price, cost twice as much for the first game. While it does add badly needed updates to the game, it feels more like the developer is nickel and dime-ing players to death. I cannot condone this kind of developer behavior.

  • Summary: Half Minute Hero was absolute win and somehow Half Minute Hero 2 was even better! The story is broken into several era's and with each a different Hero with their own individual story that ties into the main one. The game plays similar to the last one: Rush around, get money, reset clock, win, which worked for the last game and everything they've done on Half Minute Hero 2 exists only to improve upon that.

  • Summary: awesome sequel !! Even though I still agree hmh 1 was better and had the certain charm. You just can't justify giving this game a below 8 score!! for me Hmh1 was just better because the idea was new. I think it's quite hard to make a sequel to games with a certain gimmick. Adding a lot of cool new stuff is hard in a game totally based on the '30 second' idea. I still adored the art, music and the bosses, and i'll probably find myself grinding and speedrunning again!

  • Summary: One of the best games I've ever played, but not the best platform to play it on (that goes to the 360 version). There are still some bugs in the PC version, the controls are kind of a mess in some of the PSP modes (ie. the "Princess 30" PSP mode has the key bound on the right to shoot left, key bound on the bottom to shoot up, so it's advised to rebind these keys before starting, but the keybind menu doesn't make it very clear what button does what so it does induce a...

  • Summary: After reading augh18's review, and seeing GiantBomb's quicklook, I felt the need to reevaluate my thoughts; although I still enjoyed the game, I find it necessary to state that this game is different in many, very important ways, from it's predecessor. As noted, the exposition is beyond that which may be acceptable for such a fast paced game; the story takes itself way more seriously than the first game, but then remembers that the action needs to be front and center -...

  • Summary: I have a hard time expressing what I feel about this game. I gave it a lot of time to try and enjoy it, but at a certain point I realized I was putting more effort into trying to enjoy it than I was actually enjoying it. It isn't that it's bad necessarily, it's that it lacks all the charm that made HMH1 such an amazing experience.

  • Summary: Half Minute Hero does not impress me in any way. At first glance I was super excited on the possibilities within this concept, but mission after mission, the game succeeded to frustrate me. Poorly written linear storyline and dialogues, and amateur-looking graphical mistakes (such as while in pixel art, the characters only zoom in the original sprite while speaking instead of having a more detailed art).

  • Summary: The perfect game to pickup when I have 30 minutes in between classes and I want to burn some time playing rather than reading or studying. Other than that its a game that will probably sit in the library mostly unpicked.

  • Summary: Half Minute Hero is an old-school RPG with one twist: you have to win in 30 seconds. You can pay the incredibly frugal Time Goddess to reset the clock, but you can't do it forever. The result is a fast-paced game that cuts out the fluff and has you figuring out how to best spend your last precious seconds. The story is simple and very goofy, but effectively told. The music and graphics are both very good. Controls are bad, though...
