Summary: It seems that bird's eye action RPG's were the new wave ever since the hit Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance (PS2/XBOX) was released about two years ago. Taking after BG: DA developer Snowblind, Atari tries to do the same with their newest D&D title, Heroes. The gameplay is pretty much the same as in DA, but the biggest draw of the game is being able to play through the game with three of your friends.
Summary: This is a typical hack and slash game. And that is almost always fun. Beside from that its nice to play a game which take you back to the good old days with ADD. Me and my eight year old son has played this game alot and both he and I find it fun - but as there aint much for the brain cells to do it only get four stars from me :-)
Summary: If you're reading this, the chances are that you have either played the Baldur's Gate (PC) games or 'Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance (1 and 2) on the Xbox and you liked them so much that you are trying to find other games which are similar. For the PC RPG fans this game (like Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance) will be a bit of a disappointment because it much more closely resembles the PC 'Diablo' games.
Summary: I got this after finishing Baldurs Gate 2 because I wanted something similar. This is excellent and, I think, a bit harder because it doesn't have so much armour and suchlike to buy. You can't make your character better or recall back to the shop and its save point quite so easily so have to be better than in the BGDA games. It is much easier to look at than BGDA and you have the zoom in zoom out to help you.
Summary: D&D:Heroes is in simple terms 4 player Baulders Gate, less repetitive perhaps but easier for the most part. If you have never played Baulders Gate, this is a classic hack and slash adventure, with enough pick ups, weapon upgrades and storyline to satisfy the rpg fan as well as quench that thirst in all of us to chop up nasty monsters. The graphics are pretty good, not the best the xbox has to offer but it certainly goes easy on the eyes.
Excerpt: E' un periodo abbastanza florido per gli appassionati di RPG che oltre alla nutrita disponibilità per i titoli su PC, possono adesso dare un'occhiata anche alla lista di titoli per la console di mamma Microsoft. Atari adesso ci offre un nuovo titolo che s ...
