Embark on an Epic Quest to Ancient Greece
Not everything plays out exactly as the legends say. Great cities still wage war, mythological monsters haunt the land and the gods of Olympus fight while heroes and men suffer difficult lives, but in the midst of this chaos, a young boy washes up on the shores of Crete, devoid of memories and divinely blessed with immortality. Who granted him this gift, and to what end? Will his quest to regain his memories shed light and hope on the gods or ignite a new war that destroys all?

Take Command of the Greek Squad
Glory of Heracles features many familiar references to Ancient Greek characters and locations with a rich storyline inspired by Greek Mythology without explicitly recreating events. The story begins when a boy washes up on the island of Crete. He doesn't remember how he got there or even who he is. In this unique adventure, he soon meets companions with equally murky backgrounds and finds out he's immortal...just like his new friends. Glory of Heracles also features a deep, role-playing battle system and magic that can be powered up through the use of touch screen challenges. Players can visit well-known locations like Sparta, Athens and even the legendary Mount Olympus.

Glory of Heracles

Features:

  • Inspired by Greek mythology, Glory of Heracles delivers a unique take on the characters, events and monsters of legend. Travel from Crete to Athens and all the way to the halls of Mount Olympus, facing off against Minotaurs, Harpies and the unstoppable Hydra as you try to earn your place among the immortals of ancient Greece.
  • Guide your party of heroes through turn-based battles, unleashing the powers and magical abilities of the gods against the monsters of Greek mythology. Touch screen challenges give add to the action, giving you the chance to power up your magical attacks.
  • In-game tutorials and intuitive stylus-based controls make Glory of Heracles easy to learn for beginning RPG players but difficult to master. In addition, during battle, the game will offer advice on battle strategies that both RPG newcomers and advanced players will find helpful. Heracles also offers tremendous depth for experienced RPG fans, featuring alternate control schemes, programmable party member AI sets and a multitude of unique character skills, abilities and magic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid DS RPG January 25, 2010
By H. Wang
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The Nintendo DS continues its impressive run of portable RPG/Strategy games with this gem! Glory of Heracles takes a lot of good traditional elements and combines it with a clever magic (mini-game) system and adds a bit of Greek Mythology in for good measure.

The game, like many DS RPGs out there these days, begins with a pretty standard (some what contrived) storyline. You're a hero, you wake up with your memory all but erased, and over time you work to recover your memory (and do some other big things like save the world) along the way. Sounds familiar? The story here won't blow you away but it will keep you interested enough with a few twists and turns, and again if you're a Greek myth fan, you'll be happy either way.

As for the mechanics, the battle system is what you would expect. You can choose attack commands, magic spells, special skills, etc. One plus is that unlike some other RPGs, here you can augment your magic power by selecting an optional mini game after you cast your spell. The mini game gives you the opportunity to jack up your magic attack power ... but with the risk of failing as well. It's a nice little compliment to a traditional formula. I also like how you can do 'overkills' by attacking a downed foe and using the residual ether to replace a little MP that you need. It's a nice additional bit of strategy which is always welcome for a long game like this.

Battles tend to go pretty fast and the encounters within the dungeons and in the overworld are all random-based. The happen pretty frequently, but the fun battle system keeps the monotony down. Having the ability to collect items and forge your own weapons also adds to the fun.

Otherwise, the sounds and graphics are all reasonably done.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fairly traditional RPG addition to your DS Library January 25, 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I didn't realize this was coming out until I saw an advertisement for it in Nintendo Power magazine. I'm always up for a good RPG and Glory of Heracles delivers. I love anything based on the Greek Myths (or other myths for that matter like the Norse ones!) so clearly this is right up my alley.

This is your standard story RPG (amnesia hero of the world). The graphics are a bit strange to me as they look like 3D characters but they are kind of awkward. It looks like a game that was done several years ago--but with a few upgrades. I believe that may actually be the case but I'm not sure. I know the series is strong in Japan but this is the first one brought to our shores.

I found the music to be a bit refreshing. It can get redundant in battle but overall I was fine with it as background.

The story starts off very slow in my opinion. Much slower than other RPG's. I put the game down several times the first several hours I played as I found it hard to maintain my interest. This knocks it down a notch from 5 stars for me--because that first character just cannot sustain the story himself. Even with the addition of Leucos it is hard to be motivated by story when you first play. I would advise to stick with it as it does get better as more characters are added and you encounter more characters. Some stay with you a while and others are there for their own little segment and will soon go away. I found the two that join you on ship towards the beginning of the game to be very funny--I enjoyed thier dialogue.

The gameplay is strange mix. Once you go into battle you go into a grid based tactical type encounter--so the game felt like a mix to me of a strategy RPG and a regular JRPG. I really liked it as I like both types.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have DS title March 6, 2010
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I think this game deserves a 4 and 1/2 rating, but given all the four star reviews, I made it 5. It is a very good game, and it kept me entertained. The battle system isn't anything to out of the ordinary for an RPG, but there are nice features, like the magic boosting mini games, and the overkill feature, which allows you to strike a enemy already killed to gain some MP (magic points). The graphics are moderate. But the storyline is completely unique. Although the beginning is somewhat cliche (you wake up with your memories lost), there are plenty of twists along the way to keep you entertained. A good example (slight spoiler) is, contrary to what you may think, the hero is NOT Heracles. I won't explain why he thinks he is just yet... that's a little to big of a spoiler. Some other nice features include the ability to forge and enhance your own weapons, as well as give them special powers. Again, the storyline is by far the greatest aspect of this game, but I don't want to give to much away. In short, BUY IT! It's an awesome game, and you'll enjoy it very much.

5.0 out of 5 stars i love this game July 4, 2010
A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
the adventure never stop with this game, it met my expectations and surpass it. the only thing it i would recommend that you need to build your players up to a level such as level 20 so that you can compete and have the advantage in your ball-court. also if you are not a strategical person this game isn't for you. it took me quite some time to understand my players weaknesses because it was more so about gaining more power then being tactical. but if your the type of game player that grow the more you play you will have no problem.
