King of New York provides a novel counter to this. In place of the number faces of the dice are the new features of Destruction, Celebrity, and Ouch. Cities now fight back - military units break out in response to damage - and you can funnel these units to where your opponents are stationed. No monster is very safe for long. This isn't a small rebalance. You'll probably discover that while the rules remain pretty similar, habits from KoT are counter-productive in KoNY. It speeds up the game and rewards careful consideration. There's less room for error when choosing when to heal, when to gather energy, and when to attack.
The only slights I can manage: the cards from KoT are mostly incompatible given these changes. Which is sad since some of them are pretty fantastic and I would love to include them. Second, the scoring placards haven't changed other than the artwork for new characters. So they still suffer from the problem of not very visibly showing health and victory points except through a very small window. This leads to lots of neck craning or 'health check' announcements. Neither of these are enough to dock KoNY out of five-star territory. All of the charms from before are still here, just refined.
The other new concept are buildings in each borough that can be destroyed and will give you rewards and transform into units in the borough which will fire at you if you roll poorly. The units can be destroyed at a later turn, but while they remain in your borough, they are a danger.
It adds an interesting twist to a familiar favorite, however, if you play this with 3 or 4 players, you will notice the flaw that the units will not fire often and it is easy to win with stars and not even getting into Manhattan that much.
I think it is worth getting this if you own king of Tokyo, but only at a discount as I would not pay full price since I own King of Tokyo. If you own neither, this may be worth full price but only if you are looking for a game that holds larger groups (5-6 players). When played with 3, it was not as fun as King of Tokyo with 3 players.
