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.

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!

So this game is a text adventure by Choice of Games, which has many games on its website and mobile devices. They create their own games and host other games that people write using their software. If you care more about plot than cutscenes and running around then you will like this game, if you don't then perhaps you should go play something else. I love visual novels, and this is very similar except no pictures.
This is the third and final game of the original trilogy (they are supposed to release a fourth game with a different protagonist). You can import your saves from the second game or start new. There are a lot of choices and endings in this game, or at least it seemed like there were more compared to the first one. The major villian from the first game shows up as a companion this time, and now you are on the run from the law. Your parents, who were put in jail for killing a supervillain, are about to be executed, and you need to find a way to save them without getting arrested. There are several romances, and you can be male/female and gay/straight. All the romances from the firs two games show up again, and new ones are also avaliable.

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.

First impressions:

I read through the first chapter. I liked it.

(optional let's play footage)
http://youtu.be/2kygobwgcJk
Wow the graphics of your imagination are ♥♥♥♥ing incredible! This game looks amazing lol

It's a choose your own adventure novel. In the fictional world is it common for people to have super powers, kind of like X-men. There are both heroes and Villains. Oppression and discrimination are strong themes i.e. against people with super powers. This is the third title in a trilogy. But you can play this without having completed the previous two games. But I think it's recommended that you have at least completed certain chapter of the previous books.

You have to read a lot lol. From what I can gather from these games you can't really choose to play as a Villain which is what I would like to do. But it does put in you in a situation where you can or you have to cooperate with the bad guys. Which from the look's of it will be a major element of the plot here. Okay, maybe the ideas in this game aren't completely original. I'm pretty X-men had featured same sort of stuff. And some of the scenes are kind of cliche. For example one character repeatedly attempts to warn their companions that danger is imminently approaching, but each time is ignored or cut off until the danger is right at the doorstep and that character even says 'I told you so' lol. But to be honest this didn't really bother me. The narrative seem to have enough substance to be interesting. It's far from the worst thing I've read.

I really enjoyed really playing this game. I like to read. If you like or don't mind reading maybe you should give it a try.

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.
