So far I've completed the first adventure, and I like how they didn't throw all of the rules at you (locked doors, for example).
I also like the idea of taking the components from the other 3 games and putting them together for one giant adventure.
I subtracted a star just because the tokens and pieces should have been organized in bags, and some of the rules seem confusing (but not enough to distract the player from having fun).
Highly recommended. I can't wait to try the other 3 games in the series...
1 - discouragingly varied element of 'randomness' - negative experiences that the players could not possibly have anticipated, accommodated, or dealt with. sometimes you just get stuck in a room full of lava with enemies that repeatedly paralyze you and your one chance to heal yourself fails.
2 - there's no real 'role playing' involved here - it's RPG--style combat, and your characters have some stats and equippable items, but you're just playing with 'pawns' in the end - no in-game incentives to actually include a story or 'play' a character.
both of these shortcomings can easily be addresses with some judicious house-ruling or one of the players stepping up to 'play' the role of the DM (a position ostensibly unnecessary in this game) - but it's worth noting that out-of-the-box, these two elements do seem lacking.
Now - all that aside - this is a super fun and 'lite' way to get into an RPG tactics battle game, sort of an excellent introduction to larger scale miniature war games or more story-based RPG adventure scenarios, and it comes with a surprisingly useful collection of figures (the big boss characters are pretty rad) - as long as you know what you're sitting down to, it can really be a lot of fun to play.
I use the components for DM'ing 5e D&D games and am extremely satisfied. The game itself is also great for introducing new players to a D&D lite that serves as a gateway for pulling them deeper into full role playing. I highly recommend for those looking to build out their collection of miniatures for tabletop gaming and for those looking to get a taste of D&D is about.
