Gemini: Heroes Reborn is short, drab, and derivative, but it nevertheless generally remains fun throughout its five-hour running time. In its best moments, it mixes familiar elements from beloved platformers and puzzlers to create an experience that, at least for brief moments, captures the essence of the show.

In a way, it feels kind of cruel to mark Gemini down. For all its flaws and lacklustre looks, you can tell that Phosphor were really onto something in the way it experimented with superpowers here. Given more time and resources – and without being weighed down by the Heroes license – the studio could have created a truly special comic book adventure.

It isn't the best first-person adventure you'll ever play, but it does offer some fun in its combat and time travel mechanics to warrant your time.

The story doesn't have a lot to offer and is pretty standard as far as these kinds of games go, but the game's fun telekinetic combat and stellar time-shifting mechanics make the experience a worthwhile one.

Were it built with more skill, with a greater flow of movement and one hell of a graphical upgrade, and then given a dose of writing that wasn't horribly reminiscent of its sister show, this could have been quite the thing. And yet, I enjoyed myself at moments, before wearying of its weaknesses toward the end. Fascinating that it came this close.

Although it has problems going against it, Gemini: Heroes Reborn has some great ideas and fun gameplay that make-up for it's shortcomings. I recommend this game, and although it falls short it is definitely worth the $14.99 price tag.

Gemini: Heroes Reborn is certainly not a bad game, it is just excessively forgettable.

For $15, this is a good game to burn through over a weekend. Expect anything more than a above average tie-in, however, and you'll be left disappointed. Good for fans of Heroes (both of them) and anybody who longs for the days of endless licenced media.

It also made me realize Gemini: Heroes Reborn offers up a layer of strategy and depth I never expected to get.

There is the odd glimmer of something greater in Gemini: Heroes Reborn. For whatever reason, you never get to see it very often. Combat can be gleeful fun, but a forgettable, pointless story, dull characters and uninspired design work are just some of the things that work against any potential.
