    Simply put, this game is amazing.

    You can play casually and enjoy the game at a leisurely pace, or play to top leaderboards and enjoy the rush of an intense, reflexive puzzle/RPG hybrid. I have sunk 15 odd hours into the game so far and the game still has hours of gameplay to offer.

    Great graphics (on Classic mode, the updated visuals are terrible), stellar music, insane gameplay,
    hilarious dialogue, a pantload of unlockables, tons of replayability, and currently just 800MS points. Discard all previous notions about the genre, buy this game, and prepare to be blown away. Expand

    Half-Minute Hero is a fun and quirky gem that is worth a second look.

    You may tire of the basic gimmick before you're skilled enough to succeed on elaborate, brutally competitive four-player online maps, but Half-Minute Hero's charms still last a surprisingly long time.

    I grew fond of the concentrated characters, and after applying the alternate retro visuals had a much easier time navigating the game world, along with it being easier on the eyes.
