  1. Stratego meets Braveheart in this entertaining and simple game.
  2. The graphics are not jaw dropping, but as is the case with most strategy games, this really doesn't matter. In the end, it's the quality of the gameplay that counts.
  3. 77
    Heroes distills the great battle sequences from the PC version and delivers them in a fun, relatively deep game that’s good looking, moderately fast, and that doesn’t falter particularly badly in one area.
  4. I haven't seen such lame animations since the early days of Sega Genesis. This is supposed to be the PlayStation2 for crying out loud. How difficult is it to do create some cool fighting animations?
  5. While some hardcore gameplay fans may appreciate the purity of this experience, the plot and lack of characters is so glaring, I find it hard to believe even so-called "hardcore gamers" won't find it annoying.
  6. Has a few surprises and some significant flaws. While die-hard strategy fans and extreme fans of the Heroes series on the PC might get a kick out of this one, it's really a rental at best.
  7. If you love this series on PC then stick to it there because the essence of what makes HMM is just hinted at on PS2.
