Ratings and Reviews
I've played each of the Choice of Games-sponsored releases as they've come out since I played Rise of Heroes. I've been disappointed each time, and that trend continues here, but this is by far the best since it. The choices feel organic, the story is brief but compelling (especially if you have an interest in medevall Chinese culture or mythology), and the characters are fairly real and avoid the typical stereotypes that so many Asian characters fall into today.
My one real complaint is length. I went through this in about an hour and a half, which is a shame because this has the potential to be Heroes Rise. It's very well written, everything feels real. The short time spent in the story did a great job of setting up a believable and interesting world I would have liked to further explore, and the major conflict hinted at could do to be fleshed out more. But this is a great read/play, and I think despite the brevity it's worth the three dollars. It just has the potential to be so much more.
I have always been a fan of these games. I buy $60 games for fun stories like these! Granted the stories are not groundbreaking but for me they are very satisfying. The writers did a great job with this story. I enjoyed various dialogues among the characters, especially the scenes with the Go matches.I have only played one play-through with the choices I liked but will definitely play through the other choices as well. The only negatives are that I wished there was more story for the romance arc ( although it may have just been short for my choice) and a longer epilogue! Overall I enjoyed my experiences with this story. A recommend buy for anyone who is a fan of wuxia and action!
*might want to change cover art though. no offense to the artist, just change to something more icon-like. (e.g. a peach tree or an image of the monastery)
It's up there
One review said that it rivals cog's Heroes. That is true. My only wish is that it would continue untill my death... That wish applies to both game. But since I'm reviewing this game I guess I should say something about it. It has some grammatical errors that, if you know the format they use, are hard to prevent. However they are easily overlooked and do not take away from a story. Also there are many different endings. I highly recommend this game along with Hero's Rise (I think it's the game it is comparable to, different subject matter but really good).
