Ratings and Reviews
Surprisingly, I don't think I ever read any of these books when I was young, which is too bad as I would loved them.
This newest book in the series is really fun. Very simple to learn and fun to read. Do hardcore from the start as the save mechanism creates a "load" system from anywhere in the game.
Only issue I had was near the beginning you can buy a bunch of stuff and if you don't the right stuff, you'll end up reloading from all the way here. Let me save you some pain, get the hacksaw and the steel hook.
Resident evil+fighting fantasy
This game is pretty good as a fighting fantasy game. It's plot is well written enough for what it's trying to do and it does give you the feeling of isolation and fear. I was kinda tense making decisions and the only real problem I can think of (outside of a few glitches) was that there were some decisions that immediately kill you despite the game hinting that it is the right answer. For example there is a box that you can't open. I had a shotgun. I was told that the only way to open it was to shoot it. It exploded and killed me when I did.
Great! So much fun— Even in groups!
This game is designed to be played solo, but we were enjoying mapping out our adventure and reading aloud together in a group of three (with one designated hero at a time and sometimes switching roles after a failure). The writing and unique social opportunities are interesting enough for even non-participants to want to listen in and cheer on the successes of of the protagonist. If you want to play this game socially, I recommend having one person read, one person make decisions, and another person draw a map.
The only problem is that the story has a number of typos and syntax errors. It could use a good edit, but the fun is not dampened by the mistakes. I am so glad we got this game!
