Is It Any Good?
Action games need more than action; they need heart, and while this game sounds like it has all the right elements to be addictive, it misses the mark. Hero Hunters does manage to blend three genres in a fairly effective manner. It's a good-looking game. And it has varied gameplay modes. Unfortunately, it lacks that heart -- that undefinable quality that draws you in as a player. The writing is flat. The characters never draw you in. The action, while it's certainly not bad, is rather paint-by-numbers. There aren't any surprises, even mild ones, to keep you hooked. You can only advance so far -- especially in the multiplayer mode -- before you need to seriously consider paying for upgrades. And, after an hour or two, you'll find your attention wandering to another app. Hero Hunters almost has what it takes to be fun. but it never sinks its hooks deep into you enough to keep you playing.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
