  • Summary: [WiiWare] The famous Heracles has taken on a challenge like none he has ever faced. Our hero will have to beat his opponents in a race across mythological kingdoms and be the first to reach the top of Mount Olympus. You can play as Heracles and help him return the sacred trophy, or play as one of the other varied mythological characters from Satyr to Poseidon and claim the prize for yourself. Race through three racing cups across 10 courses set in five mythic landscapes. Use awesome fantasy weaponry to defeat your opponents: tridents, fireballs, Zeus's lightning rods and more. Get your friends together for intense two-to-four-player split-screen multiplayer action in Championship, Single Race or Battle mode. [Nintendo] Collapse

  1. This game is also a hint for beginners as for pros. The items and tracks are actually like those in Mario Kart and the characters out of the Hercules cartoon. A good copy is better than a bad original, right?
  2. As a cheap and fun alternative to Mario Kart, Heracles Chariot Racing has it covered. [Oct 2009, p.88]
  3. Lacking any realistic sense of the story of Heracles, or the experience of chariot racing, this game would at first glance seem to be a disappointment. However, what we have instead is a passable Mario Kart clone that offers some new twists to its racing, some new battle mode levels to play with your friends, and ultimately a full PS2 game in one budget priced download.
  4. There are definitely other small missteps, such as the lack of control options, but Heracles: Chariot Racing shines because of its mythological setting, with stellar course pieces and style.
  5. A Mario Kart clone that doesn’t impress, but neither disappoints. The multiplayer bit makes it worth the time.
  6. Provides a cheap, easily accessible kart-racing experience, but does nothing else to distinguish itself. As a WiiWare game however, it stands above the crowd in terms of value and content.
  7. Heracles: Chariot Racing is a stupid copy of Mario Kart, as lots of them which we are used to since the first one was launched, in 1992.
