Glory of Heracles, the new RPG released last week for the Nintendo DS, feels incredibly familiar. And that's just fine.
The game takes place in an anime-infused version of ancient Greece. Your amnesiac hero may or may not be Heracles, son of Zeus. But he is, like many of the companions he'll come to meet along his adventure, immortal. So too, apparently, are the rules of the traditional Japanese role-playing game.
