Featuring a cast of more than twenty characters, and a setting that is very similar to that of the Trails of Cold Steel series, Zero to Hero is a unique take on the turn-based combat genre. However, it isn’t always clear how the characters’ models and menus work, and the second half of the film is messy and not properly prepared.
Turn-based combat affair
XCOM 2 is not for the faint of heart. It is a tad too long to write about in a single post, and while the game isn’t as polished as its PC and console sibling cousins, the resulting experience is nonetheless a worthwhile endeavor. The best part is that the game is accompanied by a slew of enticing incentives to keep players engaged. The aforementioned octet is the apex of all the other rewards in the game, and even the most jaded amongst the pack will be left drooling and enlightened for the remainder of the evening. Despite the competition, the game has managed to maintain its swagger, and that’s what makes it a must play. The game is a bit on the dry side, but the novelty of adversity is more than half the battle.
Set in a separate world from Erebonia in the Trails of Cold Steel series
Taking place two years after the events of Cold Steel II, Trails of Cold Steel III is set in the same world as the previous two titles, although the game has been localized to different countries. The third installment of the series is scheduled to be released for the PlayStation 4, PC, and Switch in 2020.
The story begins in Garrelia Fortress, on the eastern edge of the Erebonian Empire. The fortress is a large wall that separates Erebonia from the Calvard Republic. It is also home to two huge railway guns that could strike Crossbell City.
A group of young adults rush through the interior of the fortress. They are attacked by an unknown assailant. Afterwards, the group realizes that the enemy’s attack was a diversion to reach the railway guns.
A group of teenagers rush into the fortress to stop the attack, and find themselves battling waves of archeisms. They also uncover a trap door. This is where they encounter the mysterious character of the Blood and Iron Chancellor. The Chancellor is tied to important story moments from the previous games, and is the central character of the series.
The game’s combat is similar to that of Cold Steel. Each character has a default attack, which is unique to them. Players can earn combat points by smacking opponents and by whacking the Evil Mishy. They can also buy items from towns. These items include weapons, boots, and armor.
In addition, the combat system includes a charging attack. The player can use a d-pad or face buttons to attack the enemy. The combat system also features various ‘team strike’ opportunities. This is where a player can gain a buffed team by accumulating Brave Points.
The second half of the film is messy and not properly prepared
Taking a look at the Zero to Hero Collection, the first half is a well-made biopic of Hong Kong Paralympic sprinter So Wa-wai (Louis Cheung). The second half is a muddled mess that barely manages to hold together. While the film has its fair share of eye candy, it fails to deliver anything worthwhile.
The film begins with the birth of So, who has cerebral palsy. Despite his disability, his mother convinces him to join the paralympic athletic team. Eventually, So wins a gold medal in the 1996 Atlanta Games. In addition to his success, So must choose between competing for the team or finding a job in order to survive. So’s life is also filled with other complications, such as his mother’s deteriorating health and his sports agent’s offers of endorsement deals. The second half tries to make sense of everything, but it fails.
The best part of the second half is the music. The soundtrack is full of well-placed, musically-motivated sequences. It’s not a bad thing, but it’s not exactly ground-breaking.
The movie also has a couple of other good ideas, but it’s too short to really explore them. The most impressive is a scene in which So wins the Olympic Games with a medal that’s more impressive than it is in real life. The movie also has a lot of melodrama. The characters are sexy, but the movie is too small to fully explore their emotions. The movie’s main theme, which is about the tribulations of being a disabled athlete, is not explored.
The story is a unique “comeback kid” biopic
Unlike other comeback kid sports movies, Zero to Hero doesn’t sugarcoat the challenges facing the main character. Instead, it highlights how the family and supporters work together to ensure his success.
It’s not easy to be born with severe hearing loss and walk, but the film shows how hard the people around So Wa Wai worked to make sure he had the opportunity to be the Paralympian he was. The film also highlights how his mother and father work four part-time jobs to pay for their son’s care, and how their life has been shaped by his disability. It’s also a great example of how adversity is overcome through perseverance and a positive attitude. It is a feel-good sports movie that will inspire tears during the tearjerker scenes.
Zero to Hero is an inspiring movie that focuses on a story of a gold medal-winning Paralympian and his family. It’s a positive, inspiring story about how Paralympians are viewed in society, and how their hard work helps shape the future of their community. The film also has a message about how difficult it can be for a disabled person to succeed in a world that doesn’t understand them. While the film isn’t a perfect movie, it is an inspirational story about a man who overcomes all of his challenges and wins the gold medal. It’s a great movie for anyone who enjoys sports movies, and is a good way to get into the spirit of the upcoming summer Olympic Games.
While the movie’s main story is quite good, it’s also filled with side stories that add to the length of the film. It’s not an easy movie to watch, but it’s a worthwhile watch for fans of sports movies.
