As the corrupt President Victon launches his oppressive campaign of Powered Regulation, your Legendary heroic rise transforms into something much more: you must become a political icon fighting to restore Powered rights in America. This new battle takes a twisted turn when your once-greatest enemy, Prodigal, tells you President Victon’s darkest secret....

This is definitely a fitting end to this fantastic trilogy. It's still tense as anything and some parts had me screaming internally because most of my decisions are me playing by luck and some of those choices were NOT FUN oh my lord. If you haven't had the absolute pleasure of reading HR: The Prodigy and HR: The Hero Project, the first two parts of this trilogy, then you are missing out on one Hell of a time. This is a choose-your-own-adventure on a whole 'nother level of 'OH MY GAW WHY DID I DO THAT' and crippling regret. Given all of them are really cheap too, it's entirely worth it - you get more than your money's worth, so long as you enjoy reading and also shaving twenty years off your life because this stress is just too damn much.

TL;DR: I will recommend this until the day I die, along with the two prior installments.

If you have the first two, this brings the whole journey to a satisfying end. It has the most divergent story as well and does a very good job of bringing old choices into play.

Also, I got to sleep with Prodigal which was pretty neat. I guess she even had lingerie that matched her costume. I spent ~20 hours of my life on this trilogy so I'm just going to pretend that made it all worth while.

I have always favored games where you made real choices. In most games with such choices it's little more than a 2 way branch, or nothing but choosing a particular ally before going right back to the same path. Railroading bores me. Heroes Rise... Does not. The choices felt like actual choices, with actual consequences, influinced by prior choices and changing future choices you might have. This gave the game a fluid feeling and made it actually feel like those choices really mattered and influinced the world.

At the end of the game I got to see my choices come to a head, and got to see the results of those choices. I was particularly pleased when my decisions caused almost every conflict I was going to have, break down into infighting as half my enemies joined me instead. Knowing what I did made such a difference was an extremely satisfying feeling, one that most games do not offer. The focus on story rather than flashy graphics allowed the game to become something far greater than the pretty but. frankly, boring games I usually get to see or play, and certainly left me eager for more. I look forward to what this developer produces next.

The Heroes Rise Trilogy, man...where do I even begin. It's a work of art, the game absorbs you into it, keeping you eyes glued on it. The characters make you feel like you're really there. I recommend this game a hundred percent. One of the better games I've played in my entire life.

This game is amazing.
Rarely does a book (and game) invoke such strong emotions upon me.
This book, no, this game it should be a testament of everything that is great in choice of games.
I laughed, I cried and sometimes I even got angry...
It just goes to show how someone could easily get invested on this game. I would recommen that you start at the very first Hero Rise: The prodigy.
*warning to all gamers- This game does not contain graphics or music, do some research before buying*

Some choices don't have quite as much impact as I hoped, but this is overall a great ending to the trilogy. Love the solidification of the previously-introduced achievement system!

Great ending to one of the best Choice of Games series out there. The challenges you face in the game are fresh, unique, and creative. The choices you make, from the beginning of the first book to this last one all significantly affect the final outcome. It has some surprising twists and tense moments. Herofall also gives the whole trilogy huge replay value because of all of the possible endings.

My only complaint is that some of the relationship scenes seem forced, which is minimal compared to everything else Herofall does right. If you're a fan of Choice of Games, have played any of the previous games in the trilogy, or are just looking for a good eBook type game, definitely pick this up.

Last year during the summer sale I decided to give this trilogy a try. I thought just the pure idea of a text based super hero game was clever enough to earn my money. So I bought it and instantly fell in love with the series. It even inspired me to write my own super hero story with my own original characters. I will admit a game like this isn't for everyone, but all 3 are worth the money.

A considerable improvement over The Hero Project, winnowing down the list of characters considerably and allowing you more genuinely free choices with more logically-following outcomes. A return to the high narrative and characterization standards of The Prodigy.

In my opinion this game is the best in the series as everything from the previous games came together really nicely in this thrilling conclusion. I replayed the series so many times mostly because of getting all the achievements and I felt it was worth it every time. Funny enough the hardest achievement to get for me was the one where you actually die which is kind of hilarious because the game chided me for it and made it out to be the worst thing I could have ever done.

It was neat getting to see how all the different romances worked out and how I was rewarded or punished for previous choices I had made in the game. I got to see ho each of my characters changed in some of their stats as the game went or or stayed true to themselves and in the end each one is a very different hero from the last that I played.

I wanted to like this game, after truly enjoying both prequels, I was excited to wrap up my hero's story. But I found myself suddenly thrown into a linear plot where my choices didn't matter. The previous games are very open to letting you decide your own emotions and reactions, which is what you expect from a CYOA. But after being told I "have no choice", "the only way", "You know you have to"... etc, over and over, I realized I was just reading a book with buttons that I was no longer in control of. The final straw for me was the game deciding FOR ME who I romanced and kissed. Without me choosing. Also, power cost information usually leads to "wow that cost more than you thought" - which I'll admit IS in line with the plot, but ends up being frustrating when you were trying to be strategic.

I'd say buy this on sale if you really enjoyed the first two games, but be prepared to relinquish control over any major plotlines or decisions.

The final story in this 'trilogy' of games (although not the final story in the Heroes Rise universe) this game brings all of the previous story threads together well, if a little rushed. (I felt as though some of the romance options were perhaps a little rushed in this one). Still, it's great to come to a fitting end for my hero and I can't wait to see what's next for the world.

Bring on THP Season 2!

The final part in Zachary Sergi's Heroes Rise trilogy...

Shouldn't it be Hero's Rise, given it is about your rise? But I digress.

The final part in Zachery Sergi's Heroes Rise trilogy remains as boring, uninspired and shamelessly railroaded as the previous two installments. For a game that essentially amounts to a superpowered revolution against the President of the United States, there is absolutely no 'bite' to the piece. The writing does not improve, 'slugger' continues to be used, and all the criticisms from the previous titles are very much still apparent. You get railroaded from plot point to plot point and then it, mercifully, ends.

The worst part about it, though, is that this game has so many positive reviews, presumably because the game is nothing more than shallow wish fulfillment that (briefly and with the subtlety of a sledgehammer) mentions LGBT characters.

I'm amazed at how extensive this series was. I came upon it thinking I would find about 4 or 5 hours of cheap entertainment for about 3 bucks, not a week of gripping plot and interesting characters for about 10 dollars. I love this series especially amongst Choice Of Games' arsenal, even if some of the stats may have been a little convaluted. Overall, I am VERY satisfied with my experience and I would strongly recommend anyone who thinks this game might be worth their time to try it out. Seriously. Its worth way more than the price of a medium pizza, which it is currently equal to.
