Switch Player (Oct 17, 2017)
88 Heroes: 98 Heroes Edition is another game that fits into my “belongs on a tablet” bucket, which is worryingly starting to fill up fast. Whilst it does nothing wrong - and is actually fairly enjoyable in places - it just doesn’t feel like the sort of game that I want to play on a console. As I’ve mentioned in previous reviews, the Nintendo Switch’s portability does offer this game somewhat of a new lease of life but I’d still find it hard to recommend - especially with the sheer volume of quality releases currently sitting on the eShop.
The Game Hoard (Feb 02, 2018)
88 Heroes: 98 Heroes Edition is a game that I really wanted to be good. I love the full embracing of cartoon silliness, I love the constant need to crowbar 8 into any situation, and the hero designs are appropriately ridiculous, filled with pop culture references and the kind of zaniness that would appeal to me in any other setting. It has such a wonderful set-up, but it appears all the inspiration was used up before they started making a game around it. The levels feel like rearranged versions of each other, prioritizing killing off heroes rather than providing interesting obstacles. The heroes are mostly either too similar to deliver on their premises or too limited to be worth your time playing. The game itself is bogged down by the limitations it imposes on you, discouraging the exploration of its characters and instead making you want to thin the group down to one ultra-capable hero so that you can actually complete the levels.
