    This action-adventure RPG is just about as fully-featured, customizable, and fun as they come.

    Battleheart Legacy is easily among the best games I've played this year, and I can't imagine a reality where it isn't still high in the running when we get around to doing all of our game of the year stuff in December.

    Simply put, Battleheart Legacy is one of the best action RPGs available on a mobile platform and one of the best mobile games in general.

    Battleheart Legacy is an intricately designed RPG experience with tons of action, and potential choices making it a must buy.

    Battleheart Legacy makes use of a minimalist visual style that, while clean and easily accessible, won’t exactly wow you. Its controls, too, are a bit of a sticking point, as during the heat of battle, it’s easy to accidentally click the wrong target or move to the wrong area. Still, these issues are minor, and will probably go unnoticed by players as they’re too distracted by the ludicrous amounts of fun they’re having.

    An exciting, accessible role-playing game that does away with most of the fluff that bogs down the genre while retaining the depth that fans adore.

    Mika Mobile has crafted a lengthy and uncomplicated action/RPG adventure, with just enough challenge and depth to draw in gamers of all stripes.

    Props to Metacritic. I complained they did not have this game up and within less than an hour they responded by email with a link. On to the review: After having played this. I have to lower the score for wayward souls, which was probably a two compared to this game. This game is what DIablo 3 should of been. Its mind-blowingly good. The Toucharcade review is spot on. DEPTH DEPTH DEPTH. this game has it. Quests and storylines are BOMB. with twist on twists. Makes you feel like you have LOTS of choices that makes real impacts upon the story. You can be a goody good or wicked or in middle. The class system is a dream. You can diversify or focus like the TA guy says but after hours of experimentation I focus on being the gandalf wannabe. Dam, my wizard is so badass!!! thats what i feel like as I play this. but its not overpowering, the challenge is LEGIT. balanced almost as good as dark souls. I gave up RPG's for awhile b/c i couldn't stand the combat of final fantasy and skyrim, but then this new generation has games like Demon's Souls and this game which make RPG combat as good as it gets, painfully challenging with fluid controls. Death is horrible in just right way, partly b/c the economy is pretty well balanced. Every coin you get seems to matter and when you die, you lose a big chunk of your dough. Like Zombieville, the ability to customize your character is FUN and Complex. Not annoying and complex like some games. The guy in TA says you will run out of batteries multiple times on your ipad from trying to play it unplugged b/c its sooo addicting....that **** is happening to me. I'm not writing anymore. I'm going back to play dammit! Get this game. Support Mika mobile ( i think that's the company?) they take awhile to come out with games, but when they do...they knock it out of the ball park.

    Update: I just beat it. The ending is amazing.

    This game has endless re-playability due to its class system. Unlike in some RPG's you aren't chained down to 1 class, no no, you get points on each level that you can put in several stats like charisma, int, skill, etc. And with those points you can buy spells in all kinds of classes for example necromancer or barbarian. Another factor that gives this game re-playabiltiy out the ass is its story line, Every conversation will give you multiple options, in some you may insult the other guy and in others u can agree leading into a different story line.
    My only complaint is that once you reach level 10 or so you don't have many quests left, and at level 15 they're literally are none, leaving you to grind the **** out of areas that you already did until you can actauly beat areas at higher levels.

    Good balance, but the pace is too slow and laborious indeed, often find myself forced to go over missions over and over again! Other than this, great music, easy control, a fun game not to miss! Expand

    The phone screen is way too small for a game like this. This game would be great on real hardware, or even a larger hand-held (still, better on real hardware like a PC). Games like this just prove that iOS is an awful platform for anything but cheap, simplistic casual games. Port the game to PC, and you would have yourself a great experience. But I can't strongly recommend it in its present, diminutive form. Gameplay-wise, there is great potential. Expand
