    Half-Minute Hero may be "JRPG-lite," but even if you're not a fan of the genre there's plenty of great gameplay to be had. A clever game with plenty of humor and personality, Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax is certainly worth your time.

    Those who played the PSP version won't find a lot of new material here, but if you never played it before, Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax is a game you won't regret.

    All told, you're getting an absurd amount of content for your 800 Points, but such is the incessant repetition at the core, you may question whether you really need it. If the answer is yes, then this is unquestionably an instant purchase, but over the long haul its infectious opening gambit doesn't quite sustain.

    Admittedly, Half-Minute Hero does wear out its welcome towards the last handful of stages, and the extra modes generally feel like filler at best. But, for the most part, Marvelous' RPG parody is a unique and entertaining experience that finally has a chance to capture the hearts of an entirely new audience.

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

    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.

    If you don't have a PSP, it might be worth checking out if the nostalgia hits you hard enough, but unless you're a glutton for punishment, I don't know how much you can find here. Oh, and if you do have the PSP version, just walk away. Take your time, no need to hurry, just walk aw-BOOM!

    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.
