Hardcore Gamer writes: "One problem is that Hero's Saga plays like most SRPGs on the market with few exceptions. It's you and your troops versus a main rival and his/her troops in grid-based warfare, and like many genre entries, it has an incredibly steep learning curve. However, it does help separate itself from the pack with things like a unique class system. Instead of a traditional class system where class changes with the character's level, here, characters change class with their weapons. I don't recall seeing this before, and it actually works pretty well."
