    Hardcore Sega fans will love it, but casual gamers will most likely become bored. If you love weird Japanese games, however, give me a try. [Aug 2003, p.29]

    Seems expressly designed to become an obscure B-game classic - it's unpolished and controls strangely, but it's too weird and drop-dead funny to ignore if you're a very special sort of gamer.
  3. It's a direct port of a 3-year-old Japanese Sega Dreamcast game, and, well...it shows. Try it if you're brave; you just might like it. [Aug 2003, p.118]
  4. Fugly when it came out on Dreamcast, and it's even fuglier now. Everything about this game is low-rent, and nothing has improved in this Xbox port. [Sept 2003, p.67]
  5. Although Hero's high concept borders on the brilliant, the game itself is poorly executed and seems as out of place on Xbox as a rump roast at a vegan restaurant. [Aug 2003, p.89]

    This game rocks! It is pretty well made for a SEGA game.
