Rise from Disaster is a free action-based game set in a sci-fi world where humanity has been at war with machines for a century, with deadly mutants aiding the machines. In this game, players join a rebellion to turn the tide in favor of humans. The gameplay combines hack-and-slash mechanics similar to The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom with a zombie-filled setting reminiscent of Resident Evil 4. Rise from Disaster offers stylish visuals and easy-to-grasp gameplay for most players.
In Rise from Disaster, players find themselves in a post-apocalyptic wasteland battling zombie-like mutants to survive. Starting with bare hands, players can acquire more powerful weapons like a sword with various slashing capabilities. The game features different missions with objectives ranging from killing mutants to reaching specific locations, as well as challenging boss missions. Completing missions progresses the story, although the cutscenes lack sound.
While Rise from Disaster offers a stylish and visually appealing science-fiction adventure with varied mission objectives, there are some oddities in its design. In certain missions, enemies stand still and do not fight back, resulting in wildly variable difficulty levels. Additionally, the game is quite violent despite being rated for all ages. However, if players can overlook these quirks, they may enjoy the adventure.
