Ten Ton Hammer's "First Glimpse" Review of Hero Online

Posted Wed, Aug 02, 2006 by LadySirse

Ten Ton Hammer's "First Glimpse" Review Gives Hero Online 3 Out Of 5

Ten Ton Hammer reviews the latest MMORPG to arrive on the scene. Hero Online, released on Monday (7/31/2006) is free to download and free to play, and who doesn't like free? Developer NetGame has a very novel approach to making money in the increasingly jaded fantasy MMORPG market, unfortunately there's little else innovative about the Hero Online grind. We played the first fifth of Hero Online's 100 levels, and our "first glimpse" review gives the game 3 out of 5 hammers

"In a slight bow to newbie-friendliness, Ngame added tips for beginners that appear at intervals in your chat window. Unfortunately, this consists of mostly keybinding information. Aside from that and what you can discern from the zone-wide chatter, there's literally no handholding. Quests are few and far between; I received a grand total of five quests in the first ten levels. Mostly mundane single-step quests are, however, doled out at intervals; a message scrolls your HUD that "[NPC] might have work for you" when you level up."

Experience Week Canceled

A note has been posted on the official site for Hero Online that their week long experience event has had to be canceled.

We regret to inform you that we have canceled our exp week event due to conflicting problems with our new UI. Our exp event is currently causing a lot of problems with our testing which is causing us to delay the release due to constant problems. So in order to keep the release date May 9th, we have to shut down our experience event.

FiringSquad.com posted this interview today with Firefly CEO today.

FiringSquad: What can you tell us about the storyline for the game?

Simon Bradbury: Only a little at this stage. Our hard bitten mercenary hero enters the dungeon on what he thinks is a straightforward mission, but it soon proves anything but… It will involve a dungeon under siege, a dungeon that needs the Hero’s help.
