4.0 out of 5 stars Fun game if you like cooperative games and don't mind cheap components
By A reader on September 30, 2019
This review might be a little long; but I hope it is helpful. Yet, if you just want the bottom line, here it is: this is a fun, easy to learn and to fun play game for the whole family, provided that (a) you like “cooperative games” and (b) you don’t mind lower quality components. Now for more details:

In this game, each player plays as a different character (with different special abilities) trying to help a village survive attacks from any number of several “classic” monsters while trying to complete certain tasks needed to defeat the monsters. As in all cooperative games, the players play together against the game itself. They can all win by meeting the winning conditions or lose in a number of different ways. The game is similar to another cooperative game called Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu, which is excellent but which did not get a lot of attention when it came out. Reign of Cthulhu, however is a hard game and you are likely to lose more often than not. In Horrified, it is much easier to control the difficulty level and it is not difficult to win when played against certain combinations of two monsters. The game can be set to a higher difficulty level by adding monsters or by selecting the monsters that offer more of a challenge to defeat. Horrified also does a slightly better job than Reign of Cthulhu in driving the theme of the game across. There are a lot of thoughtful little details in Horrified that those of you who have watched the classic horror movies will recognize (from the names of the Villagers, to the items the players collect to defend against, and attack, the monsters, to illustrations in some of the cards, etc.) Also, not everyone is familiar with the Cthulhu stories, but everyone (even younger kids) is familiar with Frankenstein’s monster, the Wolfman, the Mummy, Dracula and the other monsters in this game. A game with four players should take about one and a half hours, which I think is perfect for a family game. All in all, I have enjoyed the game and look forward to playing it again with different combinations of monsters.

Unfortunately, the game is not perfect and the biggest negative for me is the low quality of the components. The cards are really flimsy. You will want to sleeve them if you are going to play the game a lot, which adds a cost to the cost of the game. But the most disappointing is the quality of the monsters’ mini figures. They are made of cheap molded plastic. When I opened my copy of the game, I noticed the mummy had been in the box pinned under the weight of other components and was bent over looking like it was falling over. Dracula is also bending forward a little bit (looking like he is hovering over someone with this cape). I contacted Ravensburger and they graciously agreed to send me a replacement. But because they sent it in an envelope, the poor mummy was again crushed along the way and the replacement was in even worse condition than the original (see the photo). It barely stands up. I am not going to return the game because of a crappy figure, but being a big player in the board game market, Ravensburger should know better. Lastly, with so many cardboard pieces and the fragile figures, the box really needs a good insert that would let you organize the components and keep the figures from getting crushed. I now spend a lot of attention at how I place the figures back in the box because I am afraid they will bend while the game is not in use. I own at least one other Ravensburger game, by the way, so I am not trying to pick at them. On the contrary, I am saying they are a good company (and their customer service is great) which is why I am surprised at the low quality of the components in this game which I think will be a very popular game.

I don't mind owning both Reign of Cthulhu and Horrified, but if you already own and love Cthulhu and play it often, this one might be redundant. But if you are looking for a more accessible theme, particularly for younger players, and particularly around Halloween, you want to consider Horrified.

The Good:
– Great theme
– Fun and easy to play, easy to learn
– Good for adults and children alike
– Just about the right length playing time
– High replayability value because you can create different combinations of monsters to play against
– Easy to control the difficulty level
– Can be played solo

The Bad:
– Fragile monster figures
– No box insert
– Low quality paper cards

Reviewed in Mexico on September 20, 2019
Excelente juego, la temática de los monstruos clásicos es muy llamativa y el material es de muy buena calidad, lo compre con un poco de duda por que lo comparan mucho con Pandemic (juego que mi grupo de amigos odia), pero me lleve la sorpresa que este juego es mas amable, no es tan riguroso con los castigos y los turnos son bastante rápidos y fáciles de entender.
