  • Conclusion: Hammerin Hero is almost guaranteed to disappoint any gamer that purchases it due to the short length, repetitive gameplay, and lack of replay value. But, it does make the perfect rental, and is highly recommended for a brief rendezvous.

Comical hero wields mallet in action-packed platformer.

Common Sense Media
1 August 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game's hero is full of comic mischief and goes around whacking enemies on the head with a mallet that can be made bigger via a powerup. In defense, enemies do try to kill him first. Hammerin' Hero spins and falls to the ground when he's hit (although there's no blood). There are occasional references to tobacco (cigars) and alcohol (billboards for fake products). The game is supposed to be irreverently funny.

Hammerin’ Hero (PSP) - Review

VGChartz
15 June 2009
  • Excerpt: “It’s a dude with a big head and an even bigger hammer, how could it not be awesome?” Such was my response when the cashier at my local retailer asked me why I picked up Hammerin’ Hero for the PSP, an obscure Japanese title brought over by Atlus. A throwback to the old Hammering Harry titles, the game is a 2.5D platformer touting stylish visuals, a wacky storyline, and an old school difficulty level.

Hammerin’ Hero

  • Conclusion: While it’s more likely to frustrate casual players than entertain them, serious platform fiends have a reason to dust off their PSPs.
  • Pros: The collectables, including dossiers with amusing information on the enemies you’ve beaten, and thank-you letters from bystanders you helped.
  • Cons: You get bumped back to the start of the level after losing your last life in the boss fight.

Hammerin’ Hero

  • Excerpt: Thanks to its relative power, the PSP has been a breeding ground for quite a few ambitious portable titles – Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories pushed open-world gameplay into a tiny package, SOCOM and other games like Syphon Filter featured robust online multiplayer, and God Of War: Chains of Olympus gave the little handheld’s graphics processor a good workout. Hammerin’ Hero , on the other hand, does none of those things.

  • Conclusion: Go buy Hammerin' Hero, especially if you've been whining about the lack of good PSP games. This is one of them. You need it. Go feed the need, man, and remember that all emotional problems can be solved with copious amounts of hammerin'.

Hammerin' Hero

7 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Name: Hammerin’ Hero Genre: Action, Platform Platform: Sony PSP I have a pretty unhealthy obsession with hammers. In my last three Dungeons and Dragons campaigns, including the one I’m in right now, I always make sure my character, no matter the class, is equipped with at least a warhammer of some sort. Shoot, my latest character is even called Hammer. See what I mean?
