This is a good RPG/action game much like the Zelda games for Super NES. The music is fantastic and the graphics are colorful. This one will keep you playing for hours, with lots to explore and plenty of weapons to acquire.

It's Zelda Lite. The cuteness is a little overwhelming, the graphics are definitely retro, but the game within is amusing and entertaining - like just about every Hudson Soft game I've ever played. They've got this beginner-level RPG genre down pat; why they're still releasing games for the Duo is a mystery.

Une conversion qui aurait sans doute pu ĂȘtre meilleure, mais qui reste un ajout non nĂ©gligeable au panel de bons jeux CD PC Engine, et qui de plus est disponible en version US.

Still, it appears that the designers didn't work too hard to inject much freshness, like more realistic graphics. That's what makes Dynastic Hero a "run of the mill" rather than a "better" RPG.
