Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: Screw the two hour-long grinding sessions. Forget the amnesiac hero's quest to find his true identity. Just go save the world as fast as you can. Such is the perspective of Marvelous Entertainment's Half-Minute Hero , a wildly unique and disarmingly funny role-playing game that every PSP owner...

  • Excerpt: Condensing game genre stereotypes into frantic, fast-forwarded snippets, Half-Minute Hero is the latest in a wave of retro game parodies coming out of Japan. Can its appeal endure longer than 30 seconds, or is it just a flash in the pan?

  • Excerpt: There’s a lot to make fun of when it comes to RPGs. Many developers don’t seem to care that they’ve been recycling the same stories over and over again for years, and neither do a lot of fans.

WorthPlaying
31 October 2009
  • Summary: Half-Minute Hero is a bold new concept of having the player save the world, 30 seconds at a time. The player must fight, shoot, summon, and protect in four distinct modes, each containing a different perspective and unique gameplay style, across a total of 120 varied stages.

  • Conclusion: A charming, self-deprecating, retro-steeped homage to classic gameplay conventions set to a rockin' speed metal soundtrack. At only ten hours, the ride is short, but each second of gameplay is packed with an immediacy unmatched in current games on any console.

26 October 2009
  • Excerpt: If “pick up and play” is the holy grail of portable games, Half-Minute Hero is the holiest game in the history of the world. The latest title from Xseed—a reliable publisher of appealing oddities—takes short-attention-span design to its logical, farcical extreme by cramming as much play as possible...

  • Conclusion: Half-Minute Hero is a stunning example of why all games don’t have to follow the same rules, but, even with as much as I loved playing it, I'm well aware of its limited appeal. I could drone on and on about how the game flushes the rules of classic RPG's down the toilet and emerges better for it,...
