100 (Sep, 2007)
H.E.R.O. ist auf dem C-64 technisch wie auch spielerisch fabelhaft in Szene gesetzt worden und bietet noch heute grenzenlosen Spielspaß. Es ist ein Spiel, das man zweifelsfrei gespielt haben muss!
Zzap! (Jun, 1987)
Not just a programming exercise, a fabulous exploration designed with the player in mind.
Retrogaming History (Aug 25, 2009)
Ciò che rende H.E.R.O. un vero classico intramontabile è la sua giocabilità innata, non elogerò mai abbastanza l’autore, John Van Ryzin, per aver sviluppato un’idea così semplice ed accattivante. I livelli richiedono degli ottimi riflessi per essere attraversati, ci spronano a proseguire, generano quella curiosità che ci spinge a vedere cosa c’è oltre. La difficoltà è graduale, ben bilanciata, almeno per quanto riguarda la prima parte del gioco, più avanti diventerà una bella sfida!
TeleMatch (Nov, 1984)
Was noch? Mehr nicht, außer Punkte sammeln. Für Freunde des Genres nicht uninteressant. Grafisch, wie einleitend bemerkt, etwas schwach. Den Sound hat man einfach links liegen lassen.
Your Commodore (Oct, 1987)
A re-release of an old Activision game. The games looks more than a little dated now (not surprising really) and is graphically crude. For all that, there is still an initial addiction but once you start remembering where all the hazards are, that also wears off soon.
