Herocade Review – 9 Cheap Games but a Waste of Money

As a PlayStation VR owner, we can’t complain about the many different games at our disposal these days. A lot of different game genres are being explored by developers over the past few months. Herocade is one of those games that offers a lot of potential considering how you essentially get 9 different games for $14.99. Unfortunately, you sometimes get what you pay for, and Herocade illustrates that point perfectly.

Herocade Fails to Live up to the Expectations

Granted, when you get a bundle of different VR games for the price of $15, one can’t expect too much, after all. Although there are tons of great games in VR, Herocade doesn’t necessarily mixes those by any means. None of the games in this bundle is particularly good, fun, or challenging. It is evident there are a lot of failed attempts to create pretty decent VR games these days ┬áIt is sad to see all of them get thrown into one bundle as a way to make them look better, but it isn’t working in this case.

That doesn’t mean the games themselves are all a waste of time, mind you. We merely want to point out some people may need to adjust their expectations when dealing with Herocade, as you will not get 9 AAA games for a bargain price. All of the games itself are mainly indie projects, which can be a bit hit-and-miss. In this case, however, they are mainly a miss, as very few of them are worth playing a second time.

Some of the disappointing games include Jurassic Survival, PolyRunner, and Z-Strike. We did enjoy 405 Road Rage and Dreadhalls a bit more, thankfully. Although they are still clearly half-finished games compared to what we have gotten used over the past few months, they offer at least some value in return for the price. Dreadhalls was actually a pleasant surprise, as we never envisioned playing hide-and-seek in virtual reality whatsoever.

All things considered, there is no real reason to pick up Herocade unless you are 100% certain you will enjoy all games. Rest assured that will hardly be the case, though, as there is so much “crap” in the bundle it makes you wonder why these games are grouped together in the first place. Especially for newcomers who want to pick up a few games for a cheap price, this bundle will be pretty disappointing as a whole. Spend some more money on decent games, that is the best advice we can give you right now.
