    Simply put, Has-Been Heroes is one of the most engaging strategic gaming experiences on the market. However, getting to the point where it's that enjoyable can be too demanding for casual gamers so make sure you're willing to give it time for the gameplay to click and let it grow on you. Once it does, it's a downright blast to play.

    Eventually, though, the heavy emphasis on the luck of level generation, the frustrations of enemy repetition, the poor tutorial, and the tendency to overrun you with tough enemies spoil the whole. Hard games are great, but there are limits.

    Has-Been Heroes is as tough as nails and built for people that like to lose over and over again. The combat offers an interesting twist on a familiar mechanic, but never really evolves beyond that initial learning process. Some of the whimsy present in the Trine series has been carried over here, but not enough to balance out the punishing difficulty.

    Components blend in such a way to entice a new player to give it more than a few runs. After the honeymoon is over, though, a game that leans so heavy into the rogue-like trappings needs to do something to maintain player interest. Regrettably, that is where this title falters.

    Has-Been Heroes has some great ideas and offers a interesting take on strategy, but some questionable design choices prevent it from being a better game.

    Has-Been Heroes doesn’t excel at anything and remains a game that had a lot of potential in theory, but punishes players too much in odd ways to be much fun, and isn’t a recommended purchase at full price. It is a game that will probably do quite well in a Humble Bundle down the line, but on its own it is a very hard game to recommend.

    Has-Been Heroes is just not a great game as it has very complex and confusing controls and a battle system which feels punishing and difficult. There are far better roguelikes out there and Has-Been Heroes just doesn’t have the chops to make it a worthwhile purchase.

    Every part of my being told me that this game would not be fun. Every video I watched made me not want this game. I broke down and got it.Every part of my being told me that this game would not be fun. Every video I watched made me not want this game. I broke down and got it. I've been playing for the last 6 hours. I still haven't beat the second boss and have been getting my teeth kicked in over and over again. However, I'm still having fun trying to get past this pirate prick! I'm liking the art style and really digging the challenge. I highly recommend this game. Expand

    Per il resto tutto funziona: grafica bidimensionale pulita e ben fatta, animazioni molto buone, strategie che si rivelano utili quando si possono attuare in un contesto “normale”. Ma se non viene corretto questo grosso problema strutturale, il titolo Frozenbyte arriva solo alla sufficienza e poco più.
