Master Ackrovan's Review of Nobody's Heroes
Nobody's Heroes is the 7th scenario made by Kelandon.
The Plot - This scenario has a very original plot compared to most other scenario's. You play a group of new adventurers out into the world for adventure!. You explore a small, isolated valley, looking for chances to prove your worth! Yay! On the way, however, you encounter another group of adventurers. During the course of the scenario, you compete with these adventurers to find Machrones artifact, which was stolen from him. While its nothing jaw-dropping, the plot fits perfectly with the humor ride you'll be in, so overall, its not to shabby.
The Graphics - Nothing surprising or special. Nothing substandard or unfitting either. There really isn't much more to be said. Don't play this scenario for looks, but you don't have to worry about your eyes hurting while looking at it either.
The Dialog - Heavily humor based, you can expect to have quite a few laughs while playing through this scenario. Virtually all of its jokes are on-point and entertaining. If you like to laugh, then you'll enjoy this scenario's dialog. If you don't laugh while playing this scenario, then you probably don't have a good sense of humor.
The Gameplay - There are a few shops in this scenario, although you won't really need them. A few of the shop owners have something to say, but most will simply direct you to their wares. Prices are pretty balanced, but again, I doubt you really need them. The run time for this scenario is around an hour, which while short, is average for a BoA scenario.
The Scripting - One excellent part of this scenario, however, is the scripting. There are some superbly done cut scenes and are a real credit to the designer himself. They range from "OMG, how did he do that" to "Haha, that's hilarious". A few minor scripting tricks were there as well. Overall, the scripting is excellent, and a real eye reason to play this scenario.
The Combat - The combat in this scenario could have used a face lift, to say the least. There are a few fights, but you only participate in one, and its neon-easy. While the plot itself may be the reason why combat wasn't taken heavily into consideration, but it still could have been more varied and entertaining. Don't play this scenario for the combat. You'll be disappointed.
Overall - This is an excellent short scenario with plenty of fun and jokes with some pretty cool coding tricks. While its combat and gameplay features could have been worked on a bit more, you should definitely give this scenario at least on try, for its goods utterly outweighs its bads. So get out there for fortune and glory!!! Or something.
Final Ranking - Good
