Aug 22, 2010 by

Hero of Sparta by Gameloft is a 3D RPG game available on the Apple App Store for $1.99.
->One of the best games of its time, Hero of Sparta by Gameloft puts a wonderful twist on fantasy and roman legends.
First impressions? Well, it looked like one of the most worthwhile games I would ever play. And trust me, I’ve played A LOT of games. The menu was clean and very easy to follow. For such a savage looking game, the interface was quite clean.

There are many things I like about this game. The first and the most important being it has a wonderful story plot which makes you want to continue playing until the game has been completed. Trust me; I’ve stayed up until 2 in the morning playing this. Secondly, there is a great selection of weapons which fit any fighting style. The only thing I don’t like about this game are the graphics which appear to be not so clear. Other than that, it’s one hell of a game, no pun intended.
Graphics: 2/5 – Like I said, not that clear.
UI: 4.5/5 – Wonderful; see for yourself.
Gameplay: 4/5 – You can complete most things easily.
Creativity: 5/5 – Has anyone thought of a Spartan RPG in hell?
Sound: 3.5/5 – Dramatic and suspenseful.
Controls: 5/5 – Controls are just really straight forward.
Difficulty: 5/5 – Considering all the difficulties, I have to give this one a 5.
Longevity: 3/5 – Depends on player.
Entertainment: 5/5 – Keeps you guessing until the end.
Value: 5/5 – Worth it.
Total: 42/50 or 84% – Recommended? HELL YEAH! Pun intended.
