Product Description

The wonder of ancient Greece comes to life on Jan. 18, when Glory of HeraclesTM launches exclusively for the portable Nintendo DSTM and Nintendo DSiTM systems. The game marks the first in the popular Japanese Heracles series to launch in the United States. The game is inspired by Greek mythology and written by Kazushige Nojima of Final Fantasy fame. The traditional role-playing game features an engrossing story and a robust battle system. You can roam the countryside as they encounter new characters and gain experience, or they can visit familiar ancient settings like Athens and Sparta. Although the plot is fictional, many of the people and places in the game are based on familiar Greek mythology. An extensive glossary provides more details about the places and characters that heroic Heracles encounters. You will be treated to animated cut scenes on the screens of their Nintendo DS or Nintendo DSi systems. You can opt to use the stylus or control pad and buttons to control movement in the game, while the touch screen is required to complete optional challenges used to power up spells or skills during battle.

Reminds of the golden era of RPG

Happened to get this game free through someone just giving it away, and I have to say, it's one of the best RPGs I've played in a long time. It's battle system is with magic and skills having a neat little twist to power them up. Of any game, it really reminds me of Breath of Fire. Pick it up, and don't miss out on an awesome little journey.

Great Story!

While playing this game, it reminded me of my childhood and the feels were great. Even though the graphics may be somewhat crude compared to today's standards, this game is awesome. I mainly played it for the story and was very impressed. It was long, intricate, and played to the players emotions very well. Overall, I am now very fond of this game, and I probably always will be.

Couldn't put it down!
Roxas358

At first glimspe you think this game is another mediocre game Nintendo made to "TRY!" to appeal to the RPG fanatics (such as myself), but boy was I wrong. I literally did not want to put this game down. The story was great, the gameplay even better, and it was different than most RPGs I have played recently. The battle system is amazing compared to most other RPGs on the DS (like instead of just hitting A and selecting the option you wanna use and see a cool animation). They incorporated the touch screen use with powering up spells and skills. Other than that it's kind of boring with the amount of random battles you have to encounter, but the story more than makes up for it. For $15 New or $5 Pre-Owned, I highly reccomend getting this gem!

Very Good RPG
ThreeEchoBravo

This game is a great RPG for the DS. It is more of a mature flavor than some other DS titles, but not inappropriate for kids. The battle tactics are where this game really stands out. Like many RPGs the characters become more powerful through experience and by acquiring new weapons, armor, and items. The Greek mythology is an interesting flavor. Boss battles are challenging, but not so much that they are frustrating. They require you to adapt to whatever twist the boss throws you, and almost each time it's a different twist, which makes it really cool. One frustrating part is the random battle frequency is very high. The story arc is pretty linear, with not much room for exploring or problem-solving. As the story goes you're kind of just along for the ride without feeling like you have much involvement in it.

How an RPG should be

An excellent story that has twists and turns, engaging and interesting characters, beautiful graphics and musical score, witty & funny dialogue and an easy to use battle and inventory system are all high points of any good RPG. Glory of Heracles has all this in spades. If you're a fan of RPG's (even just a little), appreciate a good story, or need a great way to kill time without spending over thirty dollars; seriously pick up this gem and give it a go. Personally, I'm seriously hoping for a sequel!

Greek Mythology meets wonderful story telling
WhiteRabbit17

I absolutely adore thsi game, and have played it twice through. Whatever do you do when you're immortal, with no memory of who you are. Easy, you follow fate! Now what happens if ypu're the famed Heracles AND you've lost your memory. Now that a Heroes adventure indeed. The characters are witting and humorous and the plot remains easy to follow. The power up by Praying to the Gods in temples or before the foot of Prometheus. So much Greek mythology is woven into the story as well. Graphic are beautifully smooth and the music is cute. A top ten fave game for me. =)

Great for the DS

I got this game from my family for chrismas. I liked right off the bat because the graphics are really good, considering the fact that this iis a DS game, and the graphics are normaly really bad. And the plot line is very good. It is always building on it's self. I would tell anybody that this is a very good game, and that they should get it. And I can't wait for the sequal.

BUY THIS GAME

I bet your wondering is this a game i want to buy. YES! this game has got it all great story great characters great plot. There for a while your like whats going on? but then it starts to come all together. this game is like a little final fantasy a little dragon quest mix in with a bunch of Greek myth and it makes a fantastic game. I'm mean Ive bought many games but this is my very favorite and guess what it was one of the cheapest! you start out with two people and then you start to meet others. you and all your friends that join you are immortal and none of you remember why that's why you set out on your journey but fate has other ideas. from Sparta to Athens, by sea,land, or air its a battle to the end. If you like any R.P.G.'s you'll have to get this one for your collection. over all I rate this game 9 out of 10. ENJOY!

Awsome RPG

I usually only play weird games for 10-year olds, but when Glory of Heracles came out, I knew I needed it. I LOVE Greek mythology. And this was the perfect game for me. I'm stuck on getting throught the Maze of Heroes, battleing Hypno again is a pain, but I still love evrything about it. It can only get better in the character and world graphics.The character traits are good, the magic is powerful and helpful, the items make it that much better, and the customization of battle equipment takes a lot of time, but is really fun to just plan out each character's battle tactics. The battle system is OK, taking turns to do attacks you tell them to do. But the different monsters and bosses you battle I love. I loved all these creatures in stories, now I get to battle them. Overall, this game is really really good for what its worth.
