Ratings and Reviews
Just ok - decent first attempt.
Tin Man really should not have lead with this book, as the first installment. It's just ok - not bad, not great. Luckily for me, I started with book four (which is amazing) and I was hooked. I think that if this book was the first one I tried, I would not have read any of the others. If you are looking to try one of these books, start with books three or four (both really good). And don't worry - you don't have to read the books in order. They are stand alone titles.
Something to consider for the price.
After finishing the current part of zombie exodus, I was looking for another text game to immerse myself. This game doesn't have the same level of immersion. There are a lot of passive writing and so far I haven't ran into a companion. It tries to be engaging by using d&d rolls for attacking creatures, but its still not all that interesting. What was really memorable to me from other game either from other companies that does text games are the illuminating 1st person stories and descriptions that make you feel like you're there. the story kind of just lacks charisma on some level. Everything is matter of fact and people seem really one dimensional. I guess since this is the first story book produced it might have gotten better over time. All I know was I skimmed most of it and couldn't even focus on the story in great detail because the writing was really passive, and described a lot if stuff that i can care less about? it tries very hard to Spend most of the pages describing the environment, but that in itself seems like a chore to read. It's still worth it to try it out.
Not very good.
Pass on this. This series is not anywhere near the best, though the publisher does have better offerings that are not tied to this series.
