If you're questing for imaginative, nonstop 2D action, you'll cheer Herc's Adventures. While it probably won't achieve god-like status, it's a solid quest that mortals will enjoy.
Player One (Nov, 1997)
Entre beat'em all et aventure, Herc's est un titre plein d'humour et qui, en outre, peut se jouer à deux.

Poucos meses após o lançamento de Hercules chega-nos mais um título para a consola da Sony protagonizado pelo corpulento herói mítico grego.

Welch ein Lichtblick! Endlich mal wieder ein auf exzellenter Zeichentrickgrafik basierendes Spiel der alten Schule im Dschungel des ganzen texturierten Polygon-Einheitsbreis. Herc's Adventure macht aufgrund der liebevollen Animationen, guten Pointen (Erste Wache: "Rufus hat den Schlüssel", Zweite Wache."Das große Wildschwein hat Rufus gefressen!") und des durchdachten Leveldesigns genausoviel Spaß wie seinerzeit Zombies in der 16-Bit-Ära.

Herc's Adventures is a pretty decent game. In spite of some of the quirks of the two-player mode, I had fun playing with a partner and helping one another along the way. This game draws on so many other successful titles that you feel comfortable playing as soon as you pick up the controller. It is also challenging enough that it should keep your attention for a while. You could do a lot worse.

So how does it compare to that Disney game? Pretty favorably. With its subversive humor and pun-filled setting, the game is surprisingly funny (in a fashion similar to LucasArts' Sam and Max Hit The Road). The graphics look quite good, and in some ways have a more refined look than Virgin/Disney's version. All in all, it is very impressive for a 2D game. When it comes down to it, Herc's Adventures offers much more depth than the Virgin/Disney title, which is essentially an arcade game. The graphics, gameplay, and humor make a unique mix that results in a truly fresh title unlike most of the other games on the market today.

Obwohl Herc's Adventures nichts mit Disneys Hercules zu tun hat, zog man bei der Gestaltung einen Cartoon-Stil vor. Seit Asterix und Obelix weiß man ja, wie gut Comics und Antike zusammenpassen können; und auch hier geht das Rezept auf. Die antike Welt strotzt vor skurrilen Typen und hat einige Gags zu bieten. Die dumpfen Zyklopen zum Beispiel stapfen umher, grunzen „Hungry!“ und grabschen sich ein Schaf von der Weide. Dieser Comic-Style sowie der angemessen bis niedrig angesetzte Schwierigkeitsgrad machen das Game gerade für jüngere Zocker interessant. Bis auf den Zwei-Spieler-Modus, der Euch gestattet, gemeinsam durch die Antike zu tigern, bietet Herc‘s Adventures jedoch nicht gerade sprühende Ideenvielfalt. Das System „Bringe Gegenstand A zu Ort B“ erhält sich durch das gesamte Game und wird kaum variiert. Wer auf solch geradlinige Action-Adventure-Kost in Cartoon-Optik steht, kann sich getrost in Hercules‘ Adventures stürzen.

With bad directions, infuriating pathways, and adventures that take way, way longer to get through than you thought (many of them have you get to a remote area to accomplish your goal, only to have to go through three or four more events just to get back and deliver the item you came for), the game's design is so painful that it sacrifices fun for challenge. Harp on Ghoul Patrol all you want, but it still had the foresight to be fun instead of needlessly challenging.
Herc's Adventures is far from the greatest game out there, but it is a relatively enjoyable and pleasant gaming experience with a keen sense of humor and a high degree of playability.
IGN (Jul 18, 1997)
Although Herc's Adventures isn't a super-death-polygon fighter or a high-speed racing sim, all in all, it doesn't look that bad and offers some exciting gameplay. A small, but fine, production from LucasArts.
