Ratings and Reviews
Engaging, but tedious
I liked the way the book started, and the choices it presented.
As the story progressed however, I was dismayed to see page after page of writing, only to press one button to "turn to 245" where the flood of words continued.
There were sections where I had no choices to make for a long time.
Unfortunately, the ending left me unsatisfied. Many things were not explained, and it felt extremely rushed and abrupt. I thought I was going to start another chapter, but alas, the game was really over.
Pros: Good start to the story, interesting world.
Cons: Too verbose, leaves you with an unfinished feeling, you don't get attached to your character or other NPCs, and several more issues.
Overall, I can't wholeheartedly recommend this one, but if you catch a price break, you might want to pick it up and see it for yourself.
This game was amazing. I couldn't put it down I just had to know what happened. In fact I managed to get the best ending my first time through and was sad because I was looking forward to going though the game again!? But guess what I still can (and am doing so)! Love everything about it: Story, Characters, Humor, and Skills. Lots of choices and lots of laughs. I must recommend to any that like Gamebooks or even games and books in general. It was so good in fact I think this is the first review I have written because I just had to share. Look forward to a sequel or at least some more science fiction from Tin Man Games.
What was with the racism?!??!
My only real complaint about this Gamebook was the forced ethnicity and ethnic point (or lack there of) of the storyline.
The ethnicity of Caucasian is thrust upon the player out of nowhere. In the middle of the adventure. When gender certainly is an option.
The player is forced to tolerate ethnicity based negative comments for completely no reason what-so-ever. It was weird.
I'm sure the author was attempting to make some kind of comment on race in Australia,
and how poorly the Caucasian community is treated by the aboriginal people,
but it really ruined the book for me. It's only point in the story was interpreted by me, as nothing more than a shoddy attempt at saying "see, 'they're' the ones being racist!" I repeat- WEIRD.
The big question remaining: WHAT WAS THE POINT?
Why didn't you just ask the player what they look like in the Infinite Universe? Not every "Average Joe" is Caucasian.
BUT STILL 4 STARS because the game experience was better than the trope-abusive storyline.
