    I Am The Hero is a love note to retro gaming, ripped from the fuzzy memories of the developer's childhoods and seasoned with a wild passion for fighting games. If you want a truly modern re-interpretation of classic gaming, then it's time to join the fate and answer one simple question, "are you the hero?"

    I am the Hero is a slightly different take on the classic beat ‘em up that tries to offer a deeper and more technical combat system. It has some flaws, but overall is a great take on the genre.

    I Am The Hero isn't the best scrolling beat 'em up ever but it is well-presented, fun to play and gives you another reason to dust off the Vita too. We like it.

    Short and sweet, I am the Hero is another example of why you don't need a big budget or a 50-hour campaign to make a good videogame. Smooth, deep combat and sharp, well-crafted levels and enemies ensure that this bite-size experience is an enjoyable one even despite its repetitive soundtrack and poor English translation.

    I Am The Hero finds its home with beat ’em up fans quite well. As far as appealing to the wider audience, however, it falls short. Combat that fails to offer a personal feel alongside a lack of depth and replay features leaves me wanting more. High-score chasers and leaderboard-savvy players will have lots to love, but those looking for a casual beat ’em up may find themselves turning away at some point.

    Bad game, boring and only button mashing gameplay. The only good aspect is the number of playable character
