Half-Minute Hero Review

IGN has reviewed Half-Minute Hero, an upcoming PSP game that requires gamers to complete quests in half a minute or less. The review is very positive, saying that:

"...the impending release of Half-Minute Hero is currently at the top of the list of reasons why it's a great time to be a PSP owner. Sure, the PSPgo is here and Sony's got some big first party stuff coming soon in Jak and Daxter, SOCOM, and LittleBigPlanet, but Half-Minute Hero is just days away, cheap, funny, built for short play sessions, and clever as all hell. 

In short, thank you for reading this review. Buy this game. "
The reviewer enjoyed the music and different gameplay modes and especially enjoyed Hero 30 mode. However, there were a few minor complains about the game:

"There aren't many "Sadly…" moments in Half-Minute Hero, but there are a few dings in this otherwise awesome affair. Although I dig the 8-bit styling of the title, the menus could use a bit of sheen because they do come off a bit too basic; this is the same for the odd blue load bar that pops up on a gray background when you try to load a mode. I could've also done for a better way at connecting the stories. In the beginning, Hero 30, Princess 30, and Evil Lord 30 are all unlocked, so I wasn't aware that they were really connected. I just started hopping between them, and it wasn't until I finished one of them that I realized there was a strong link."
 The reviewer gave Half-Minute Hero a 8.8/10. The game comes out on October 13th.
