    Review:
    Hero of Sparta is a great game with nice graphics and effects. It's 3D environment was nicely created and went well with the game. The controls are like Kroll, however this one is a bit better in my opinion. There are a lot of different monsters you can fight and a lot of boss battles. You can collect life crystals and energy crystals which increase your life and energy. There are also a variety of weapons you can get throughout the game which you can upgrade with a simple upgrading system. The sounds are quite nice and the background music suits the game. There is also a lot of cut scenes in this game which tells the story or introduces a boss. However, there is also a lot of unnecessary ones too. One bad thing is that at certain places it gets a bit laggy and skips some frames. Overall this game is quite good despite the lag. The price i would say is a bit too much. Maybe if it was $5 - $8 it would be more worth it but this game is still worth the money. If you are a fan of games like Diablo II, Titan Quest, God of War or Kroll i would highly recommend this game to you.

    This game is more like what I expected Kroll to be like. Kroll didn't have a storyline which disappointed me. From the 15 minutes I played, I had fun. It reminded me a lot of GoW with the camera angles. It lacks a jump button though. I lost those 15 minutes that I played when I jumped off a ledge and got stuck in a bush. I couldn't get out.

    Why? D: Just saying that you hate it isn't going to make anyone not buy it.
