I'll be honest - I had never actually heard of 'OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes' before coming across this game. Now I'll be even more honest - checking out this franchise has raised more questions than it has actually answered. Regardless, you can't help but think that 'OK K.O! Let's Play Heroes' spawns from a cartoon - it would have all the traits that a knock-off popular franchise game would have. It's something that sells by its name alone with no real intrinsic value.
The Adventure Time games of late have driven players to this type of thinking. I wouldn't be alone in fearing a game that really doesn't offer anything besides a playable version of the cartoon. But alas, it is always worth giving it a try in the interest of science. Let's see how this little number competes in the world of franchised offerings.
Let's Beat 'Em Up
It's important to note the game is being investigated through the perspective of someone who has had very little interaction with the show. There could be a lot of aspects missed and a lot of hidden elements misunderstood. However, first impressions of 'OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes' don't stand too tall in terms of its aesthetics and gameplay.
The game takes on the beat 'em up genre parallel to the retro-futuristic action television show. As one of the games, many heroes you will traverse levels set within the universe battling foes in waves as they come, through the unique skill sets ready given provided. Besides mundane questing and dialogue, very little is offered in immersive progression. The whole visual aesthetic and mechanics are reminiscent of the old Newgrounds flash games. Yes, the cartoon actually looks like this. But even those who understand the lore and universe could arguably get this impression.
The game handles with an overly simplistic demeanor. Furthermore, the animations don't do the combat any justice. That being said, 'OK, K.O.! Let's Play Heroes' is fleshed out by its story and dialogue - where interactions between characters and sheer absurdity can be entertaining. The playthrough takes away from any rapport when it forces players to switch between fetching quests and uninspired beat 'em up battles.
It is true, sadly, that 'OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes' is just a game that attempts to cash in on the franchise. There doesn't feel like there is any real effort to make it competitive - only deliver the bare minimum a game requires to make it playable. We can consider that the game is more for children and younger adults - but with compelling games available for younger audiences - there isn't much of an excuse.
The game plays like a kiddie version of Streets of Rage, only without anything immersive about it. I'm sure should you be a fan of the franchise, there is enough to keep you interested. If you are just curious, however, nothing is rewarding to be found in 'OK K.O.! Let's Play Heroes'.
