Product Description

War raged for over a hundred years until strong, powerful Lords emerged from the fighting to bring a fragile peace to the land. This peace is threatened when one of the Lords, Ataraxis, ruler of the city of Nexus, is taken ill by a deadly curse. A call is sent out, promising rewards beyond measure for anyone who finds a cure. Four mercenaries, each with their own strengths, weaknesses and motivations answer the call. One uses forbidden spells to rain death on her foes, one has guns and bombs to blast his way through, another has a mighty sword capable of slicing through entire packs of enemies, and one other gains strength from savagely tearing through anything that stands in his way with brutal, bladed fists.


  • CREATE A FEARSOME ALLIANCE - Battle forth on your own in single player or join forces with other heroes online in 4-player drop in / drop-out co-operative multiplayer. Chat with your team in real-time using the 3DS microphone, trade items with them, forge new alliances and engage in tactical team play to overcome enemies.
  • DEVELOP YOUR OWN MERCENARY - Choose from four diverse and powerful classes then customize your appearance from the outset. As your character evolves, your fighting style, armor set, weapon and class abilities can also be customized. With almost unlimited combinations your hero will be truly unique and yours.
  • EMBARK ON A PERSONAL ADVENTURE - Explore and fight through wild, varied and dynamic environments. Battle against a wide variety of deadly creatures, who will stretch your combat and tactical skills, collecting oot, weapons, armour and other gear which will empower and enrich you on your quest. Discover new layouts, routes, items and enemy encounters each time you play.
  • KEEP THE ACTION GOING! - Test your combat skills and earn rewards by taking on new challenges downloaded daily to your 3DS. Trade items via StreetPass™ to unlock rare weapons, armour and items to aid your quest. View and track your game progress online on the game’s official website at www.HeroesOfRuin.com.

3.0 out of 5 stars Where's my replay value? 19 Jun 2012
By IainXL

Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this game on the Friday it was released and over the weekend I'd 100%-ed it with one of the classes. That's when the big flaw with the game kicks in. There is no replay value whatsoever. Yes, you can replay the game by creating another save file with one of the other characters but if you've invested time creating a specific character, building their skills and stats you can't do anything with them after you've finished the game except go online and basically be muscle for hire to help out the lower-levelled players.

In short, here's a list of things that are wrong with the game: low level cap (30), no boss respawns (without creating a new character or going online to find someone who hasn't completed the game yet), no quest replay (without creating a new character or going online to find someone who hasn't completed the game yet), no real class-specific storyline, no new game+/story repeat (without creating a new character), no increased difficulty or XP for anything after you've completed the game so one hit kills and 1 XP from most enemies all round and if you do all the side quests as they become available you level up too much and the storyline then becomes way too easy.

The worst of it is, this IS a good game and one that is needed on the 3DS with the online play and the voice chat. It's just a shame that the developers have completely missed the point on what makes this genre so special.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heroes of Ruin Review 16 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Story: Intriguing, with twists and depth. Drives the game forwards.

Gameplay: Flawless, the most enjoyable gameplay I've experienced in a very LONG time!

Graphics: Pretty, nice places to explore and varied too. The cutscenes are in a hand drawn style and I really like them, they work very well for this sort of adventuring game.

Music: Nice music, nothing stands out, but it certainly sets the scene and can send a chill down your spine.

Multiplayer: I've never been a big fan of multiplayer. This game has made a convert out of me! The single player is SO FUN, then you go on multiplayer and the experience grows in depth tenfold, it works very impressively considering this is a handheld!!!

Conclusion: If you have a 3ds this is the best game you will get on it at the moment (apart from maybe Ocarina of Time of course) BUY THIS GAME. IT IS WORTH IT.

I bought this for my son who loved the game. Delivery was very quick and the price reasonable. But like most parents we would love to see the prices of these games coming down. Overall 5 stars for delivery and it's condition on delivery. It was protected well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Big Surprise 19 Jan 2014
By Antar
Verified Purchase
Not many hack 'n slash games come out on portable systems. Especially not on Nintendo 3DS. Gameplay is surprisingly fun, especially if you can play with a friend. Levels aren't very open like you would expect in a console or PC H&S game, but it does its job well enough. Fun abilities for all classes and enjoyable boss battles.

3.0 out of 5 stars Soon you'll get bored 22 April 2013
Verified Purchase
The game starts well but in a few hours you'll get bored because is very repetitive and the four playable characters are almos identical.
