    What makes OK K.O.! Let’s Play Heroes so suitable for gamers of many ages is not just the ease of gameplay, but the delightful characters and storyline.

    Shows that licensed kids cartoon adaptations don’t have to be mediocre, and that they can be filled with the same charm as the television shows that made them beloved in the first place.

    The more relaxed method of storytelling works well to get newcomers interested in the cartoon series, and there's enough here to get them up to speed on each character's personalities. The fighting isn't deep, but it's still enjoyable if you don't mind that the battles against even low-level enemies can be quite lengthy. The same can be said for the adventure portion, which can be pretty shallow but still fun. This may not be a must-have title, but it's still worth checking out as an example of a fairly decent licensed title.

    Fighting can be incredibly fluid and fun, but it's like Capybara took an idea they had for a side-scrolling beat-'em-up and stretched it beyond its limits into an ill-fitted action RPG. In that same breath, you'll be hard pressed to find a game more faithful to its source material.

Let’s Play Heroes is a side-scrolling beat’em up game based on the cartoon of the same. Can this game be as great as some of the beat’em games of the past or will this game fall victim to the curse of bad licensed games?

    Story: The story is about K.O., a hero in training that works at a superstore for heroes. While working at the store, the villain company across the street, Boxmore, tries to destroy the plaza, so K.O. has to stop them. The story sounds generic and that’s because it is. It has the humor of the show at times but the story mimics the beat of some of the most forgettable episodes of the show and while it has a few good jokes, most fall flat. The story will please fans but this will be a negative for everyone else.

    Gameplay: The combat in this game is fluid and satisfying. There is a varied amount of moves that you can use to beat up robots and this helps make this game feel like the beat’em games that you would see in the arcade. Unfortunately, that where my praise ends due to repetitive fights as you fight the same 6 enemies over and over again until near the end of the game. The 3 end boss fight start shaking things up but the game is over when it starts becoming good. The other half of the game is running around the plaza and collecting item for different characters. Since you play in the same location for the entire game and there nothing interesting about these part, you will be praying for it to go back to the combat. If you like beat’em up games, you might have to suffer through some less than thrilling parts. I do think that this game is perfect for kids if you are introducing them to beat’em up games for the first time.

    Technical: The game runs in a smooth 60FPS. There is times where the game's framerate started slowing down to a crawl but this was mostly at the theme song and title screen of the game. I had the game crash on me twice despite there being no problems with the game. Music is generic and forgettable. I had audio issues where the cutscene audio was MUCH louder than the in-game audio. The game works for the most part but had some flaws that should have been ironed out before launch.

    Verdict: The game's combat is certainly a plus and this game is sure to be a hit with kids and fans of the show, but the repetitive nature of the game with bad technical issues and the bland story makes for a game that most fans of beat’em up can skip.

    Pros:
    +Great Combat
    +Great for kids first time within the genre

    Cons:
    -Repetitive enemies
    -Bland story
    -Boring gameplay when there no combat section
    -Technical Issues
