The experienced gamer will most likely complete this game quickly, however it was a fun little game which I did enjoy playing. It's not a game I would pick up and play through again however, I think whilst it's amusing and has its little quirks, it's not enough to have me play it a second time. The game also doesn't feature any multiplayer or xbox live options, meaning this game's probably better for renting (as I did), or buying cheap and trading it in again.
Fighting enemies can become a bit boring if all you use is your sword, however each kill can be strangely satisfying. There is however a selection of spells you can cast instead, sending powerful fire bolts or shock bolts to kill your enemies, or you can even more bombs to throw at them, adding a bit of variety to your kills. Most enemies love to engage in fights however I do notice some of them tend to try and run away once they realise it's a fight they can't win.... but they don't make it far from Hiro!
The levels aren't too challenging and quite linear, however there is often space to run off and explore, which is often recommended as you will find various shrines Hiro needs to find to gain new spells. However this isn't too difficult as Hiro has a spell he can cast where small glowing butterflies will lead the way to the nearest shrine, and if you are close then glowing fireflies also show you're near a shrine.
The graphics are actually quite good and though it's a cartoony game, I was quite impressed with various parts of the game. Some of the environment starts to look very similar in places which can get a bit boring, but the game moves along quick enough as it's not an overly challenging game.
