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!

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.

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.

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*

Out of the trilogy I would say that this is the most satisfying to play as it ties up many loose ends and allows for greater exploration of how a characters powers could be used. My only complaint would be that some of the storytelling feels a bit weaker than the other two installments. I would still encourage anyone to play this game as it has been great fun tracing the career of a hero that I created from scratch.

It is an exciting and fascinating story that's waiting for you right here! The whole Heroes Rise trilogy is definitely worth reading AND playing - yeah, despite of being a text novel this is still a game, and quite a re-playable one.

1. Convincing characters cause empathy. You will love them, you will hate them.
2. You'll face a thrilling plot and experience well executed storytelling.
3. You choices are not just nominal here: you become a real co-author, a co-creator of the narrative fabric.

If your imagination is developed well enough to perceive the text, be sure to pay attention to this creation.

Resume: it is definitely worthy of purchase!

Gaming seal of Approval: I stayed up until 4am to finish my main run. For me it had a much more satisfying ending then poor Mass Effect 3. Can't wait to think up new PCs to find other alternate paths.

I was devastated when I relised this is the end of the Hero Rise series but it was an epic ending. There is still so much you can do with the main character I realy hope the creater Zachary Sergi comes back to add on or potentially some one new. I just hope we will see another HR with you being the same main character not some one new.

Definetly the best of the trilogy. Your choice throught the three games, really affect the story line, and in this third game the fight and tactical choices are far more easier to decode (and unlike in Prodigy you can have different outcomes due to them). So yeah, game mechanics gotten really better, the only thing I still miss is a manual save, since it can happen that you accidentally chose an other answer then you wanted, and then all you can do is start from the top... But the story it self is really interesting, and it was nice to see my character have the ending she deserved. 9/10

It is best to think of these as novels rather than games. More specifically they are in the vein of the Chose your own Adventure books I adored so much as a kid. And like them the first in this series(Heroes Rise: Prodigy) has a bit of railroading going on. You might just want to scream at the main character.

That said I enjoyed this third installment much better than the first one in the series. Since it is the end of the main character's story the choices have been opened up a great deal and you really get to feel as if you are shaping the world you are in. In addition at first glance it appears there are many carryovers from your choices in the first two of the series, thus lending more weight to those decisions that may have felt pointless at the time. I am not sure how much that actually effects though since I only went through all three games once.

That said while I am divided on whether I would recomend the first installment, and while I am kinda meh on the Hero Project, this third installment I can say is truely an epic end. It is nice to see something end strongly for a change. All to often the last installment, or chapter of a story feels like a let down. It is rather hard to end something well. And for all the faults some find with Heroes Rise's start, it ends in HeroFall on a very solid note.

The conclusion to the trilogy of Heroes Rise. This one really made me enjoy all of this series and make me feel at ease. I felt like I was the Batman or any hero you love, standing for what I felt was right, with my AI companion that followed me through all 3, the drag queen Lafawnda. I forgot to mention the fact in all 3, I had put on a few soundtracks that seemed fitting and became immersed in the game. This one wraps up the story, while still making you on your toes, waiting to see what comes next. Replay value is around the same with Hero Project, but after this involving story, some may say they see the replay value as less, all up to you. If you love a good choose-your-own adventure, or maybe the thought of being a super hero, check this series out.

I liked the character development throughout all three games and it's nice to see how much some of the characters matured in this game. The Heroes Rise trilogy is a must play if you enjoy reading or just want to immerse yourself in an awesome story.

//Intro
Beginning with the "Heroes Rise: The Prodigy," you’re immediately integrated into the expansive Heroes Rise universe. With nothing short of imaginative effort, Zachary's narration does quite an impressive job at introducing a few key characters whilst allowing you to establish your own unique role in the Millennia City society.
The actions and choices you make throughout your adventure follow you through each sequel, as you continue on.
Upon finally reaching "Heroes Rise: The Hero Project," your hero glimpses at the immense buildup of suspense to which inevitably reaches a much earned climatic conclusion in "Heroes Rise: HeroFall."



//Opinion
The Heroes Rise trilogy written by Zachary Sergi was undoubtedly an enjoyable experience.
With its truly engaging storyline it helps establish a connection the reader has with their own character. Even moreso paired with allowing one the choice to respond in ways they see fit. With these two elements, it proves to be quite a noteworthy “choose-your-own-adventure” game. 6/10



//Pros
Comic book-esque
Action-packed
Non-linear
Optional Romances
Underlying Philosophical Themes -- Identity, Freedom, Security, Morality, etc.
Genuinly Surprising Plot Twists


//Cons
No option to choose/create a unique power set
Somewhat limiting in regard to fighting options
Extremely unpredictable consequences based on answer choices
Par quality reading -- a few typos.
No non-monogamy

(This game shows potential not only for the market on the PC platform, but the overall quality of what is to come.)

An absolutlely stellar final part in this amazing trilogy. If you've played the others in this series, and even if you haven't (though you most definitely should), you owe it to yourself to read this.
