Has-Been Heroes Review | New Game Network via New Game Network

Has-Been Heroes is a solid tower defense experience that borrows attributes from Plants vs Zombies, while putting its own twist on the formula. Plenty of repetition and frustration - exacerbated by too many randomized elements - but the addictive and enduring gameplay shines through on occasion.

This roguelike’s cool combat system is held back by a terrible structure.

Has-Been Heroes Review: Perfect for the Switch via Nerd Much?

I'm not sure if the game would work as well for such an extended period of time if I were tethered to an Xbox One or my PC to play, but the Nintendo Switch appears to provide for the best gameplay experience.

Has-Been Heroes Review via Nintendo Insider

Has-Been Heroes heroically treads the line between strategic brilliance and overwhelming frustration to result in an experience that will leave many feeling like toppling the Great Ghoul’s evil army is an insurmountable task. It is in the game’s difficulty and lack of accessibility, then, that sees these wearied heroes falter. Which comes as a great irony when you remember how ridiculously simple their quest had first sounded.

Has-Been Heroes Review via GameSkinny

Like its titular characters, Has-Been Heroes may look like nothing new, but has a charm and unique style of gameplay that should not be overlooked

I love this game. I got it at launch, and sometimes I had to put down BotW to get a run or two in. Like everyone has said, it’s brutally hard, and doesn’t teach you very well, but there are a lot of guides and ways to learn online. This game is all about planning and strategy, and really makes you think. If you are in to tough games, or want to get some rouge-like action in, I can’t recommend this game enough.

This game does take some getting used to. Once you do, I absolutely loved it. One thing for newcomers, use the L button to continually pause the action and plan out your strategy.

Septimus is right, I felt kinda confused with it and had to look up YouTube videos for strategies. I kinda regret grabbing this, even when it was on sale.

Has-Been Heroes suffered a lot from a poor presentation of information. A lack of tutorials for the more complex mechanics as well as a poor UI and HUD. There is an enjoyable game with multiple endings and replayability though, you just may have to squint to see it.
