I very much liked both this game and the previous one, but I found it a bit difficult sometimes to know which actions corresponded with which 'hero strategy'. I also disliked the game changer actions that didnt have any kind of warning and only told you that you had basically severed all romantic ties with either of the two female love interests AFTER you made your voting choice. I assumed that the romantic aspect of it was just going to be strained a bit maybe, but instead it seemed to just end it.

...OH! duh, one more thing. It would be WONDERFUL to have some kind of temorary save option at the end of each chapter or at least at the end of each 'PART'(part1, part 2, part3) so that you DON'T have to restart if you accidentally touchscreen the wrong option or misread a name. (suspect im a bit dislexic since I got rex and victons names mixed up for about 5 pages at the end of the story....)

All in all, even though I've probably restarted my game at least 20 times and redone the first 8 chapters so many times that I could do it blindfolded in order to redo an important decision that I didnt realize was THAT important, I still reccomend this game to anyone who has even a passing interest in DC, Marvel or Choose your own Adventures.

So, after my disappointment with The Prodigy, I was set to never touch this series again - once I had gone back and finished it, of course. A family member assured me I was wrong and that the series got better in The Hero Project - to their credit, they were right.

However, even in that case, THP barely struggles to make *average*. The writing style continues to be quite sophomoric and not in the entertaining sense of being young. It's sophomoric in the sense of awkward phrasing, juvenile handling of sex and bizarre, immersion-shattering rants about correct gender pronouns. It's immature and banal. Look, I get that more games should deal with sex and gender, and I get that interactive fiction is one of the best genres for it, but Zachary Sergi needs to handle it with a bit more deftness. Credit for attempting it.

To Sergi's additional credit, there are some interesting choices in this game. I thought many of the ones relating to Null and Lucky were quite good and hard to choose from. Unfortunately, much like the previous entry in the series, THP suffers from the stark feeling of being stuck on rails with an author that's waiting to jump out and go 'aha!' at you for not picking the right choice (while giving you no indication of what might be the right choice unless you *pay for it as an in-game app store-esque purchase*. THP, however, seems to have less of those ridiculous options like The Prodigy had (infilrating and forgetting to take off your hero costume, anyone?) - so, that's some improvement. But it's still not embracing the strength of an interactive medium because good IF rewards choices and does its best to disguise the rails (eg; Choice of Robots).

Much of the worldbuilding and setting continues to be a bit on the nose - again, it's very sophomorric. The fact that Sergi continues to interject 'slugger' into so many sentences as a catch all term that seems to be a general epithet, noun, verb, adjective and so on is lazy. Honestly, if there is one thing I could remove from this whole trilogy, it's this word. As a whole, the world feels very derivative of superhero comics and doesn't offer much in the way of originality.

For a simple premise (superhero reality TV) the plot has too many characters (of course, expecting you to remember/care about all of them) and a slow development where things just seem to happen. I'm not sure how much control over my story I actually had, thanks to the aforementioned of feeling like I'm on rails. What's worse, is that the characters aren't particularly likeable - again, due to the writing style.

So, what's good about it? Well, there's a fair bit of customisation. If you're looking to feel like you're in a superhero story and you want a bit of a self-insert fantasy where you can craft your dreamworld to exacting specifications then this is for you. If you want something that advances the medium of IF, offers interesting, branching choices with clever writing and wit - avoid. As someone who looks for the latter, I cannot recommend THP.

Additionally, I ran into a bug near the end that caused me to need to restart my entire story. I won't mark the game down for that but it was quite unfortunate.

The main problem with this game is that instead of selecting choices that you want to make, you have to look at the wordings of the choice and try to GUESS what the developer think of those choices. Even worst, if you guess wrongly, you lose the game.

I guess it is really like a reality game where you have to guess the preference of the judges, but it does not feel super hero worthy at all.

Unlike the first game where I get the feeling of actually giving my super hero a personality, this one seems to be about making random choice with unknown consequence again and again.

Fittingly for a sequel, this is pretty much the same as Heroes Rise: The Prodigy. If you've played that and liked it, you'll like this one. If you didn't, then you won't like this one either. Both are too linear for my tastes, though to be fair the writing in this one has improved somewhat.

Considering the price (I got it for 4 euros), I really enjoyed this. Actually, I paid 4 euros for "The Hero Project" and "The Prodigy", but I had mistaken the order and played "The Hero Project" first.

It took me around 4 hours or so to finish, but it was quite a nice 4 hours. It's definitely not an A-list story, I'd expected a bit more and it did end rather abruptly, but it's quite a nice little thing.

I've wasted more money on A-list games that provided less entertainment. If you want a nice little distraction, get it. If you're hard to please, go write your own damn book.

The best one within heroes rise trilogy
To me, it has the most lengthy story ( 5 hours for one playthrough comparing to 3 hours for the other two
The most difficult choice to make ( where you have to choose between dream and friendship
And the best conflict in the whole game
It's not as good as the Prodigal, it's better

For a text-based game it's quite good, the writing's solid and it took me about 4 hours to finish, which is a fair length for a game this cheap, I mean, some of the more modern Call Of Duty titles have shorter singleplayer campaigns. Some people may point to the fact that the game is linear and that occasionally your choices may make you feel "Boxed In", however, the choices presented to you are great enough and of a large enough depth that you may deviate from the main story arc and play the kind of hero you may want to play, however you will soak the fallout for whatever decisions you might choose.

In short; the game is good, and gives you more entertainment than expected of a game with such a small pricetag.
Oh, and if you have the few extra units of whatever currency you possess, buy the bundle or the perfect legend guide + warning system. They help in the long run.

This was so painful to read. As a fan of "Choose your own adventure" books... This was just too painful. There is no true depth in the choices you make or the story. There were a lot of "OH by the way this happened because of a random person whom hasnt had a proper introduction to the story decided to mess up your day," "oh and this person just so happens to be an arch nemesis, oh this one too, man people really dont like you"

An interesting idea. Reads like a book, plays like a choose your own adventure. Are you the hero or the Kardashian in the room? Who cares really; get in there and show them who you are.

Surprisingly compelling and enjoyable for such a simplistic concept. There are a few minor gripes I have here or there regarding the outcome of the game, but all in all it was a fun story to play through and simple without losing the actual game aspect of an Interactive Fiction Game. Basically, if you enjoyed the Lone Wolf or Fighting Fantasy series despite the frequent nonsensical deaths rather than because of them, this is a game you'll like. Good value for the money.

I actually preferred this to part 1; opens the world up quite a lot and is fairly entertaining, if brief.

This game is definately required if you want to understand half of whats going on in Herofall. As the 2ed game in the trilogy it provided the needed bridge in the narrative but I will be honest:

Going full hero path basically messed up both teams in the story. Still going to replay as a villain at some point because there are so many avenues from this game into the 3rd that I want to see how everything ends. Just pick up all 3 games as a collection. You wont be dissapointed. Its like City of Heroes meets Text based RPG.

This game is much like the first in the series, and you can play it without paying the first one but I wouldn't recommend it. After the fame generated from Prodigal and her Deathwave, you are trying to find a way to keep your legend level high. Your best idea to do this is to join a reality TV show called the Hero Project, which the top six winners will join a team of superheroes supported by the government. Black Magic, Jury, Mayor Victon, Jenny, and your Grandmother all make appearances. You can continue your relationship with Black Magic, if your were in one, or you can start a relationship with Jenny or another Hero named Lucky. Black Magic is pretty jerky in this one, so I went with Lucky, who is sweet. At the end you can import your save file into the third game, which some of the romances in the third one require the romance to have been completed in this game. Also you do not have to import a save file from the previous game and you can start fresh.
Some of the bad things were: you cannot save and load in the game, so if you do not like a choice you made, you are stuck with it, the legend guide that you unlock isn't that helpful, they could have added more achievements, and sometimes it was hard to tell how a choice would affect your stats. Overall it is a good game that is well written. Some complain about ending up at the same place regardless of the choice you make, but that is sort of the point to keep the story moving, and it being written out. Sometimes you'll unlock scenes you didn't see on a previous playthough.

Do you like choose your own adventure stories? Feel like every storyline is the same in every game, Ever? Then its time to bring back the past and nostalgia, and pick up this game! Sure, it had no visuals or audio, but the story and the choices themselves offer quite a bit of entertainment for those willing to read a little (okay, more then a little. Its like a novel!) This is definitely a game to pick up if youve been looking for a new book or adventure to read, without having to sink all your attention and time into something. I thoroughly enjoyed the series, and would reccomend it to any reader or enjoyee of literature.

Awesome. Althoughthis game isn't something some of us are used to, the story would win over pretty much anyone. I would definitely replay this game without getting bored one bit. Ihope to find games as great as this one, but it's not likely so.

This was an INCREDIBLE game is versitile options and enough story to keep you entertained for a long while. I loved every second of this game- sometimes it was intense, sometimes sweet, sometimes sad- it really makes you consider each option carefully.
There's so many characters, and you're always questioning who you can really trust. Can you really trust your heroes? Your friends? Your mentors?
Seriously, this is worth the buy.

Sorry Sorry if this review is a little incoherent I am playing the Hero Project right now and I am debating whether or not to betray the underdog alliance and side with the popular and remain with Black Magic or follow my heart and fight for the underdogs and say bye to her.

I am enamored with game. If you loved those old choose your adventure style books well this up it to ten because you can make actual choices that have bearing on the story. I have only one other thing to add....I can't wait for part three and I would love to see me more of this on valve.
