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.

I recommend this adventure right off the back because if you played Prodigy, then you will want to continue "your" story. It took me awhile to get used to the writing style in these stories, as it doesn't feel exactly like a "choose your own" kind of story. Some of the reactions from "My" character feels closer to watching a character, instead of controlling myself. This adventure takes you into a reality TV show for superheroes, though I'm not sure I would want any of these heroes saving me.

One of the biggest issues I have with "my" adventures up to now are the romantic options. Maybe spoilers, but the romantic choices suck. At least, during my adventure they have. I think the writing overall was better then the first story, I wasn't pulled out of my adventures as much as I was in Prodigy. After seeing where Prodigy took the storyline, I was extremely curious to see where the next adventure took me. I'll be honest, I was a little disappointed with a reality show setting, but after finishing the adventure I can at least see why it was chosen.

Some of the most important choices during my adventure though felt emotionally powerful, but it wasn't always my emtions that were moved. As I had mentioned, sometimes I'm watching this lead hero react not in a way I would have in the same position. Also, with the given choices, more then a few times during combat I feel like there is no gray area between "nuclear bomb" and "don't move". When this occurs, I tend to take into account how angry I am at the target, or how serious they have attacked me.

Overall, I would say I enjoyed this adventure and where it might lead too, even if it was a little obvious from the begining. I was never really invested into the reality show's antics, and I was so unwittingly thrown into the event that I was completely suspicions of the thing the entire time. Though, I never really had an option to express this feeling. How much love will I find next, i'm starting part 3 now!

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.

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.

If you liked the first Heroes Rise, you'll love the sequel, thats really all there is to it. The game follows a reality TV concept that is really interesting, as it constantly puts you in situations where its impossible to please everyone, the story, like the first game is still quite linear, but it makes you feel like you've made a difference anyway, quite similar to Telltales The Walking Dead game. This game is almost twice as long as the previous game, and its writing quality has only improved, as well as being more in depth too, there are a bunch of relationships in this game, and favouring one will displease the other, trying to please everyone is an incredibly hard path to take and may earn you more enemies than anything else

Fantastic game at a really good price, if you're a fan of the first, definitely check it out, if you thought the first game was lacking somewhat, then this one might change your mind on the series since its better in practically everyway. As should be obvious, if you dislike reading, then this isnt a game for you, and if you're looking for big epic storytelling or Game of Thrones level intruige, then once again this probably isnt the game for you. But if you want to sit down for a few hours, and just have fun with a story, then I wholeheartedly reccomend it.

Heroes Rise: The Hero Project is an entertaining story, and it is bigger than its predecessor, but I found it to be a weaker entry overall.

While Heroes Rise: The Prodigy deals with the protagonist starting his career as a hero and most of the choices revolve around how the hero uses their powers, Heroes Rise: The Hero Project moves the protagonist onto a super-powered reality TV show. While the writing is still fun, and I still like the characters, suddenly the story branching points are less about the actual heroing and more about the petty politics of a Survivor style reality TV show. Presumably, this story is more mutable by the player as a result, but I found the choices to be less exciting.

Ultimately, I would still recommend this title because it is an entertaining super-powered romp with a really, really fun climax. It also gives the (presumably) upcoming third instalment a really good kick-off.

Buy it, and impress all your friends by not only reading books without pictures, but by also playing games without graphics.

This game...this game makes me sweat with each choice that I have to make. Seriously, you thought Mass Effect and Dragon Age had great story and choices that matter? Well, trust me, they're innocent babies next to Heroes Rise. I do encourage everyone to play it and hope that people who made these games will not stop at that. 10/10

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.

One of the best games I've played so far, in all my life. For a text game it's a wonderful experience, really! Kind of reminds me of my days playing table-top rpg with my friends. I think the previous one is better. I didn't like what they did with some of the characters on the sequel, but still, it's the developers and writers choice, and it's very understandable. It's a wonderful game I recomend to you all.

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"
