HOT SAUCE REVIEWS: GAMEBOOKS
Blunt, wicked, reviews of gamebooks. Don't just stand there, roll the dice and pick a review. Any review.
The Way of the Tiger renaissance begins with this prequel, written by an upstart named David Walters. So how was it? Well, it’s… easy, which may be a good or a bad thing depending on how you look at it.
How on earth did this interactive app win an award? It’s pretty but far from user friendly. Cute story, but the app hurts the eyes and numbs the brains too much for its own good.
So, you want to play a harem game where you have all the hot guys chasing after you, but you are too young for the pornographic versions? Well, this one’s for you, for those days when you don’t feel like playing the Sims.
It’s quite surprising. One of the authors here is well-known for having co-written one of the best “Japanese” gamebook series out there, but the same magic is nowhere to be seen in this “Japanese” gamebook.
This is an interesting campaign featuring an amnesiac wizard, but it is marred by needlessly complicated rules and a story that works better as a novel.
The reviews you are reading here date only as far back as May 16, 2014. I can't bring myself to transfer the older reviews over as there are too many of them. You can find those reviews by clicking on OLDER REVIEWS in the menu above.
