As stated before, Mystic Heroes is a very fun game, especially when played with some friends in co-op mode. The magic spells are pretty, and the bosses are of gigantic proportions. You can expect 50-80 hit combos with large magic moves, and at least 15-20 enemies on screen at any given time. Button smashers and arcade gamers will really enjoy this title, but even then, I'd say rent it first before dishing out fifty dollars.

Mystic Heroes has some solid action, but it highlights the major trade-off between itself and its history-based cousin Dynasty Warriors: The fantasy theme allows for more-exciting game elements like huge boss battles and impressive magic attacks, but the historical games can get away with being light on plot and character. Mystic Heroes definitely suffers from Koei's lack of experience in storytelling, but it is still a good game that can be enjoyed both alone and with others.

Un bon beat-them-all qui séduira sans aucun doute les amoureux de baston intense grùce à sa simplicité et son efficacité.

Die Mischung aus Arcade-Action und Magie ist zwar durchdacht, wird aber trotz 70 zu findender Spruch-Runen auf Grund mangelnder Abwechslung schnell langweilig. Und obwohl die Grafik-Engine angesichts der zahlreichen Gegner einen passablen Job abliefert und bei Magie-Einsatz auch mit netten Licht-Effekten punkten kann, bleiben hauptsĂ€chlich die kurze Sichtweite und die NebelbĂ€nke im Hintergrund im GedĂ€chtnis haften. Zudem ist der Umfang auch deutlich geringer als beim Vorbild Dynasty Warriors: Wo die epischen PS2-Schlachten mit Dutzenden spielbarer Charaktere und zahlreichen Waffen aufwarten können, bleibt die Auswahl hier auf vier Figuren beschrĂ€nkt, die sich durch gerade mal acht Abschnitte prĂŒgeln können. Fans unkomplizierter PrĂŒgel-Action werden sich wahrscheinlich kurzfristig mit Mystic Heroes anfreunden können, doch wer ein lĂ€ngerfristig motivierendes Spiel sucht, ist mit den alt-chinesischen Schlachten definitiv schlecht bedient.

I do not believe the game is as bad as my review likely portrays it. It’s just that it isn’t all that fun, nor a worthy purchase for any serious gamer. It would, however, make a fine rental for those anxious to experiment. I’d say, when they can apply the magic system from Mystic Heroes and place it into an original game based off the Dynasty Warriors formula, they’ll have something more to work with. Furthermore, if they can take the kind of time legends like Kojima and Miyamoto take to implement features to the fullest, all the better. Lastly, I should hope Koei considers a stronger and less juvenile narrative with their next GCN outing, since Mystic Heroes did succeed in breaking the ice of the cubic waters.

Wer mal einen Moment Ruhe vor seinen kleinen Geschwistern haben vwill, kann sie mit Mystic Heroes eine Weile beschĂ€ftigen, aber fĂŒr “ernsthafte“ Spieler gibt es nicht allzu viel her.

IGN (6.3 out of 10) (63%)

Mystic Heroes is simple and to-the-point arcade action. I like it for the immediate satisfaction. You can jump into the game and start testing out buttons and attacks without too much consequence. It also has a very old school flavor that I enjoy. Battling through hordes of enemies and then taking out a huge boss is pretty enjoyable. The catch, however, is that all this becomes pretty dull after a short time. It's too much of doing the same thing over and over. Multiplayer helps amend that a bit, but even then, chances are you and your friends will want to turn to something that has more depth.

Si la jaquette du jeu pourrait laisser croire à un action/RPG, Mystic Heroes n'est en fait qu'un simple beat'em all dans la veine de Dynasty Warriors. Le genre étant assez peu représenté sur GameCube, certains pourront se laisser tenter, mais malgré quelques bonnes idées au niveau du gameplay, le soft n'affiche finalement rien de réellement convaincant.
