Last month we did a Hercules game, and now this month we're doing another! I mean, what's the deal? Seriously though. Here's Adventure on the Saturn is an awesome title. Not only are the graphics good, the gameplay is flawless. On more than one occasion I found myself laughing out loud. For example, in the intro Here is punching a lion in the head, but the lion doesn't seem to mind-it just wags its tail. I guess you'd have to see it. but trust me. the game is hilarious. There are plenty of levels to play through, all of them with their own style-in level design and enemy inhabitants. The levels are scattered all over Greece and other places (all that take you to "real" cities). Keep an eye out for gigantic enemies that not only look cool (from a cartoon standpoint) but also are funny to watch, like the Cyclops or boar. There are lots of weapons to pick up and other stereotypical items (like eating Gyros for health). The Two-player Mode is a nice addition that takes me back to the good old days of 16-Bit games. Here's Adventures' classic gameplay is refreshing amongst all the other fancy. 3-D titles these days. It may be a strange one for LucasArts to pick up but hey maybe George (Mr. Lucas to you) likes good comedy, good games and mythology. I'll pick it up.
I suppose anything involving Hercules nowadays onds up being a sleeper hit. Here's Adventure is no exception. It's easy to pick up. hard to put down. Two-player co-op makes it all the much better. I like the innovative levels and special weapons too. Here's is a simple, enjoyable and fairly fun title with decent replay value and graphics that deserves a look.
The gameplay in Here's Adventures-especially in Two-player Mode is reminiscent of kick-ass classics like Zombies Ate My Neighbors, ToeJam and Earl; heck, even Gauntlet. It's simply a fun, top-down adventure with lots to explore and extremely imaginative enemies. It can get a little too maze-like at times; you'll run into a few frustrating dead ends.
Want some good of-fashion action/arcade style gaming? Look no further, because Here's Adventures is on the scene, boasting three characters, each having unique personalities and abilities. I love the straightforward action that doesn't rely on 3-D to impress me. Hercules is also riddled with many cool inside jokes and slapstick humor.
