    Prepare to be the fastest hero there ever was!

    Role-playing games are notorious for requiring hours from the gamer to accomplish one quest. You must cross barren wastelands and delve into dank dungeons and defeat hoards of monsters to become powe...

    It's not your average RPG. rather it's one for casual gamers who dont have time or don't want to spend hours grinding.

    As you know, RPGs have always been about spending hours leveling up so that you can battle a giant boss. One reason they're so popular is because in between your fantasy adventures you can find villag...

    Different... but sorta takes you back.

    I'm actually really enjoying this one. At first, I thought with the old school pixel look I was going to be disappointed. Yay! I was wrong! It's actually really fun racing against the clock and ha...

    It's very refreshing to find a good 8 bit game among so many "modern-looking" games. <br />

    Half-minute hero is a rpg that puts you in the skin of a hero that has only 30 seconds to save the world from pure evil lords while you have to gain some exp. levels along the way from fighting other ...

    One of the games, that make your psp sweaty.

    This was the second time I got into the following situation. While I was playing psp, my friends looked from behind my back on the screen and laughed at me for playing an ugly 8bit looking game. First...

    This "fauxback" is meant to be played in short bursts, but even then you won't want to put it down.

    What if you were only given thirty seconds to save the world? That's the premise behind XSEED Games and Marvelous Entertainment's latest PSP role-playing game, Half-Minute Hero, a fast-paced RPG which...

    Charming, but charm alone does not make a good game.

    Rated on January 26, 2010 by TruthLady

    An interesting concept lies beneath the surface of Half-Minute Hero, a game that plays out exactly as is promised in its name. There are a few different modes to choose from, all based around a time l...

    Can be very engaging if you're able to look past the 8-bit graphics presentation.

    Rated on February 05, 2010 by KingLim

    This is an unusual game with an unsual goal - to save the world in 30 seconds. In 8-bit color. It's like watching a Lord of the Rings movie fast-forwarded 360 times that's running in a Sega Saturn con...

    Unique, fun, fast, humorous, simple, challenging, and lasts longer than you think!

    When I first picked up Half-Minute Hero, I wasn't sure what to expect. But it exceeded my expectations ten-fold. Gameplay: HMH is a game with four completely different gameplay modes, and two cha...

    Half-Minute Hero proves a low budget can make a great game with interesting mechanics and lots of charm.

    Rated on March 06, 2010 by SeraphimGoddess

    You have 30 seconds to save the world. Normally in most games this amount of time would mean game = over. How could one speak to the village chief, find out the item you need is in a cave, train and l...
