Serena Nelson writes: "Some adventure games are serious looks into the human condition. Some adventure games are pure comedies that'll leave you in stitches. Some adventure games are just full of beautiful landscapes that make you want to explore every nook and cranny. And then you have the adventure games that can best be described as...weird. We Need a Hero falls squarely in the latter category. Honestly, I'm not sure quite what to classify this one as other than weird. Still, it sounds like my kind of game."
