Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is a fun companion to Hundred Heroes, offering a bitesize action RPG that stands up on its own merits.

It feels more like a long lost SNES game than a modern action role-player but that's clearly the point in this charming, if insubstantial, prelude to Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes.

Pretty visuals can only get you far, however, and Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising doesn’t offer enough entertaining or unique content to keep it from being anything more than a passable RPG. At the very least, it introduces the Eiyuden world and some characters involved in Hundred Heroes, but that’s very little incentive for putting up with tedious gameplay and boilerplate characters.

While Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is nothing novel, it is a charming and enjoyable experience.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising is a hearty appetizer for Hundred Heroes. I think Natsume Atari accomplished its mission of giving players a taste of what the world of Hundred Heroes has to offer, and I’ve gotten less enjoyment out of much more expensive games. You can’t ask for much more for a budget title that was created as a stretch goal for a Kickstarter project.

Impressive efforts with a few noticeable problems holding them back. Won't astound everyone, but is worth your time and cash.

Eiyuden Chronicle: Rising has a slow and snore-worthy opening hour, but hiding behind that repetitive introduction is an incredible blend of high-octane 2.5D combat and rewarding resource gathering gameplay. The icing on the cake, though, is the Marvel Cinematic Universe-worthy parade of character cameos and appearances that promise some of the many faces you'll be battling alongside (or maybe even against) once Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes comes out.
