Critic Reviews for Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption

Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption is fantastic. It's a highly immersive experience with great writing that will have you fall in love with some characters and hate others, while also giving you the opportunity to live out your rogue fantasies. Every minute is a genuinely fun DnD-esque experience, even when having to study for a test or have the protagonist complete tasks like learning how to lockpick or fight. A definite must-have for any isometric RPG fans.

Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption is a successful return to the Quest for Glory universe as well as a clever, addictive and highly replayable adventure game in its own right. Fans of the franchise will find lots of little references and in-jokes to revel in as they make their way through the substantial campaign, and newcomers should enjoy the well-written, smartly balanced mix of point and click puzzling, time/relationship management and turn-based combat on offer.

Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption is a fun game with great exploration, unique graphical design, and a great fantasy setting. Despite all this, I found myself having a hard time getting into the overarching narrative of a young thief on his road to redemption.

Playing Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption is like curling up in front of a fire with a good book: you give yourself to the story. Bugs and obtuse puzzles aren't enough to detract from what's a unique and thoroughly entertaining experience.

"Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption" for the Nintendo Switch is a great port of a classic adventure game that pays faithful homage to the "Quest For Glory" PC series of games. If you've never played a classic point-n-click adventure game expect a lot of reading, clicking on objects, and dialogue text to go through. For the impatient gamer, this might be a bit trying as some of it might even get tiresome for a seasoned adventure game veteran. To those that preserve you'll be treated to classic and entertaining adventure!

We're headed back to school in Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption from Transolar Games. Described as a hybrid-RPG that will look familiar for fans of those classic Sierra Entertainment games. As it turns out, the Nintendo Switch is a fantastic way to enjoy a title such as this!
