    I apologize for the inconvenience, sir, but Call of Heroes doesn't come with any multi-player, though it does have 15 single-player levels and a few boss battles added for extra flavor. [Oct 2007, p.70]
  2. This is Quotix Software’s first venture into this genre of gaming, and while some interesting ideas are at work in CfH, its problematic gameplay and shallow story eclipse its potential, resulting in a budget title that is far more frustrating than fun.
  3. There are games that evoke nostalgia, and there are games that just feel old. Call For Heroes: Pompolic Wars, feels too much like the latter, and has a myriad of problems associated with its core gameplay that make it tough to play, and even harder to enjoy.
  4. Find a good book and read, or get a real game, but stay clear of Call for Heroes: Pompolic Wars. It is that bad and if you don’t want to take my word for it then check out the other ratings, the average on the internet is somewhere around 2.5 out of ten. Yes, it is that boring and dull.
  5. This action RPG from Quotix Software hits new lows in mind-numbing combat and ridiculously confusing level design.
  6. There are plenty of problems and no redeeming qualities in Call for Heroes, and it simply is not worth your time and money.
  7. 12
    Notice to innocent consumers: avoid Call for Heroes as if your life depended on it. It’s enough to destroy your motivation to ever game again.

    I think the storyline even more than plagiated from warcraft game. Pompolos is taken from Archimonde, from Warcraft, the story of the leader I think the storyline even more than plagiated from warcraft game. Pompolos is taken from Archimonde, from Warcraft, the story of the leader opening portalls and taking units to it is jist Burning Crusade's new name, and the gameplay is like Contra if u've ever played it on NES64. P.S. I didn't play this game on my PC so i'm giving to it the approx. value that was before me. Full Review »

    Am finding it very hard to type this review because whilst playing this game I attempted to gnaw my own arm off through sheer boredom. The Am finding it very hard to type this review because whilst playing this game I attempted to gnaw my own arm off through sheer boredom. The graphics are appaling, the gameplay is even worse and the story looks as if a mentally deficient badger wrote it. Steer clear of this game at all costs. Full Review »
