A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Combat is a matter of triggering attacks by hitting buttons once they've been charged up. But tracking the number of characters you have on your team, coupled with the action on the screen, and what works best against certain characters can be very confusing.

Violence

Characters use guns, fists, and other weapons in battles against other teams of opponents, but there's no blood or gore shown as a result of combat. 

Sex
Language

Sexist comments, such as telling female characters that "you have to clean my room" instead of considering them equal to other characters.

Consumerism

Players can spend real world money on in-game currencies in amounts ranging from $1 to $100. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Bravo My Hero is an action/role playing game for Android and iOS devices that pits a group of heroes against each other. The game's loaded with cartoon violence, where characters use fists, guns, and other items to defeat their opponents, although no blood or gore's shown. It also makes a soft push for in-game purchases ranging from $1 to $100, but  it's not necessary to spend money to play the game. There's no alcohol, drug use, or sexuality issues, but there are sexist comments made by characters. For example, one female character is told "You have to clean my room" instead of considering her equal to the other fighters.

What's it about?

BRAVO MY HERO is an action/role-playing game that mashes up animated parody characters from various franchises (like knockoffs from Star Wars, Dragon Ball Z, Final Fantasy and more) and pits them against each other. Players fight enemies in teams of five vs. five against computer controlled and human opponents. Victory often comes down to the squad you choose, as each hero has different strengths and weaknesses you'll need to consider when fighting. Successfully defeating enemies earns you coins, which can be used to upgrade a hero's abilities to make them more effective in battle. Apart from 5v5 matches, players can fight hordes of enemies, and can also join guilds to increase their chances of success.

Is it any good?

While this role-playing game tries to capture something for every gamer, it doesn't have nearly enough solid play or inoffensive content to make it appealing. Bravo My Hero has the bones of a good 5v5 fighting role-playing game, but it badly lacks polish. The control scheme is just too complicated; even figuring out how to get to the next fight can be challenging. The tutorial is just too long and doesn't explain the game's mechanics well. There's also a poor English translation of the game dialogue. For instance, "her" isn't a word that should be on two lines. Worst, there's dialogue that veers from the groan-worthy to sexist and offensive. There's just a lot of work on the content that needs to be done to make this game moderately acceptable for modern audiences.

Bravo My Hero tries to let gamers play a Japanese-style version of The Avengers, with a wide variety of heroes, but forgets that it's not fights that make those heroes appealing; it's their backstories and how their powers are integrated. The lack of sensitivity around the dialogue is also way too questionable to be justified. Although some players may be amused with the action of Bravo My Hero, most players will quickly find that their time could be better used. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about sexist comments. Why would someone make comments that are clearly offensive to someone else, even when they claim that they're joking? Is there a way to explain to that person that those comments are harmful without them dismissing the comment as a joke?

  • Why is it important to work with the right people as a team? Can you use the skills of teambuilding that you use in Bravo My Hero in real life?
