HEROES OF RUIN
Nintendo famously doesn't “do” online well. Maybe it is fear of exposing its core audience of young players to the griefing and swearing commonplace in online multiplayer. Maybe it's lack of experience. But none of its platforms and few of its games seem to 'get' it.
That's what makes Heroes of Ruin such a pleasant surprise. On the face of it a fairly standard dungeon-crawling RPG, it incorporates some solid online features that make it well worth a look.
Dressed in luscious visuals nicely enhanced by 3D, HoR settles into a comfortable rhythm of monster mashing and loot collection. That is until another online player suddenly materialises in your game to help - and (gasp!) can voice-chat to you.
It's mundane stuff on other platforms but an absolute breakthrough on 3DS. RPG fans will lap it up.
Normally, a good game charges you with benevolently aiding your little charges. Here, your duty is to stop the gradual construction of the eponymous tower by assailing humanity with fire and, um, rocks. But even a cheap download such as this should offer more strategy and destructive power. As it is, you're forced to hammer the buttons and wait impotently. - Belfast Telegraph
