Two things work against it for me.
1...The Genre is just not my thing, if it is your thing then you will enjoy this game a lot more than I do.
2...The powers system, powers that can be used are based on levels, it is in my opinion not as playable and took my kid a bit longer to catch on. The same system was used in SuperMunchkin and I didn't care for it as much there either.
Nevertheless the game system plays pretty much like all the others so it is pretty solid. Munchkin is a fine game series it's just a question of finding the right flavor for you.
This one just doesn't happen to be mine.
Each card contains its own set of rules that affect game play, so each card contains (often substantial) text.
The game is fairly flexible in terms of the number of players it can accommodate, but somewhere between 3-5 is probably best. If you stick to those numbers, a game will usually take around 30-45 minutes.
This game can be played as a standalone (horror themed) set and is also compatible with any of the (many) Munchkin expansions, so a player may consistently add new cards to the deck in order to breathe new life into the game.
Overall, the play is very fun, portable, fast-paced, and often amusing.
APPROPRIATE AUDIENCE: Hardcore gamers will enjoy this as a "warm-up" between their more complicated gaming sessions. It's a very useful tool for introducing newcomers to these kinds of games (although Fluxx or Current Number of the Beast are maybe even better for this purpose).
Finally, this particular set is horror/goth themed -- in other words, if the player doesn't enjoy (or won't understand) vampire, werewolf, and black mascara jokes, you are better off getting a different set of Munchkin cards (Star Munchkin for sci-fi fans, Zombie Munchkin for zombie fans, etc).
OVERALL SCORE: B+ (at this point, the game is too venerable to consider anything less, and the cards are well illustrated and consistently funny).
