I wish The Glory of Heracles had taken a few more risks. The story has a good thing going, with your requisite twists, and an interesting set of characters. However, it is wasted on a game that struggles to find uniqueness. While the game does a good job doing everything you expect it to, the problem is that it only does what you expect it to. RPGs, Japanese style or otherwise, have advanced and The Glory of Heracles feels dated by comparison.
