  • Summary: In Mystic Heroes, it's up to you to find hidden Runes that will help you defeat an enemy army. As one of four main characters, you'll battle through Mt. Hoshin, Mt. Senkai, and The City of the Ancients. In each stage, you must equip your Runes strategically in order to defeat powerful enemies and bosses. The more Runes you gather, the more spells you unlock and levels you advance. There are 70 total Runes hidden throughout the single-player missions and multiplayer modes. Expand

  1. A game with gorgeous models, intense combos, magic-driven action, and a cast of characters that make character selection a really tough decision. [Oct 2002, p.84]
  2. The frantic fighting and creative spell-casting are highly addictive, and the difficulty is where I'd want it to be. [Oct 2002, p.86]
  3. An action game with appealing and simple gameplay but with flat characters and no connective tissue.
  4. The frustrating camera and repetitive gameplay will ward off most older players after a few hours.
  5. It’s just that it isn’t all that fun, nor a worthy purchase for any serious gamer.
  6. 63
    Becomes pretty dull after a short time. It's too much of doing the same thing over and over.
  7. 50
    This game adds a lot of great stuff to KOEI's long-in-the-tooth Dynasty Warriors formula, but the sum experience is still way too repetitive to be enjoyable. [Oct 2002, p.42]
