    Offers a smooth ramp of power, fast-but-strategic combat, and a real variety of gameplay. Alone, it's cool. With friends, it's a blast.

    While the graphics seems to be a baby step back, the camera, which can zoom in and out, makes up for it. The gameplay is incredible, the musical score is impressive and the controls are fantastic.

    We all loved "Gauntlet" in the arcade and D&D Heroes captures the adventure-filled essence of that classic but with a very clever new control system that can be enhanced and refined in all sorts of interesting ways.

    There's something immensely satisfying about plowing through hordes of monsters with a group of friends, and Heroes does that exceptionally well, despite its other flaws.
  5. I enjoyed this game, because it's one of the few games that you can take a few buddies and play through. It doesn't require much thought and in fact much skill. Anyone can seemingly pick up and play this game for some good fun.
  6. Play solo, and you'll find scant motivation to hew through hundreds of drooling monsters. Forming a party, on the other hand, changes everything. [Nov 2003, p.189]

    The game doesn't look bad, but it doesn't look good enough for an action game whose major draw is its audiovisual presentation.
