The game also supports head-to-head multiplayer action and the ability to trade collected items, two features designed to build a community of worldwide heroes. Featuring more than 50 playable missions with branching paths and side quests, Dawn of Heroes takes players to the endangered Kingdom of Brimthule. Brimthule's King sacrificed himself to entomb the great beast Ragnakore within stone. Now players must save the kingdom by battling the curses, monsters and misfortunes that have ensued following the King's tragic demise. Utilizing a streamlined user interface that allows players to command all aspects of their adventure with the Touch Screen and stylus, the game contains 25 playable classes from six unique factions and a multitude of enemies. In addition, the massive world of Brimthule and its unique inhabitants are rendered in detailed 3D graphics that help bring the adventure to life. [Majesco Entertainment] Expand

  1. Although a few aspects are annoying, such as the inability to skip combat animations, the game offers a nice balance of complexity and accessibility and should keep gamers coming back, making it easily worth its price of purchase.

    There may not be many new ideas in Dawn of Heroes but the hilarious dialogue and wacky adversaries still make for a memorable experience. [Apr 2010, p.89]

    While Dawn of Heroes is a stalwart effort by the developers, and I can't say that there's anything truly wrong with the game, it simply underwhelms in every single aspect.

    It frequently plays more like a puzzle game than a tactical game, however, with large doses of luck being required to come through some encounters. The bothersome interface aspects ensure that playing the game is more a chore than entertaining, relegating it to the status of yet another disappointing DS game.
