Review of 'Oriental Hero'

Rating:3 User: p13z

A sideways scrolling beat-em-up, that tries to make up for the overly simple game-play by making it fast and difficult.
The graphics are good, and, if you can put up with repeatedly dying to learn the levels, the game-play can keep you coming back - just to get that bit further.
This game was widely slated, with one of the major criticisms being the speed and difficulty of it. As someone who persevered with, and ( I think ) completed this game as a kid, I am not ashamed to say that I quite liked it. Its not a great game, but it looks good, and if you have the patience to learn the levels it can be mildly rewarding to play.
