Okay, time to show off just how much of an old-school, dyed-in-the-wool, sad-♥♥♥♥ nerd I really am: I used to own this board game back in the day, and it's a SINGLE PLAYER BOARD GAME. That's how sad I am...er, WAS (I would never do anything like that nowadays, except for innumerable recent games of Arkham Horror by myself...but apart from that, NEVER!!!!)
This is the first time I've tried one of these literal board game conversions, and I must say I do find it all a bit odd as a concept, but that aside this is about as successful as something like this could ever have been. And I've just spent a solid few hours trying to conquer all three difficulty levels, so there's obviously something a little bit compelling about it all. Having said that...I suspect there's a not a great deal of replayability once one has gained all three - count 'em, THREE - achievements, and I'm already two down, so how much this is worth the measly five buck asking price is up to you.
My advice would be wait til it's on sale, and then the heck with it...how much playing time do you expect for two or three dollars? Skyrim won't be that cheap anytime in the next decade, so by all means, if you're as big a nerd as me, and want a taste of what we old ♥♥♥♥ers used to play BEFORE the Playstation 1 even existed, then it's surely worthwhile as a curiosity piece if nothing else. By the time I conquer all three difficulties I probably will have wasted five hours of my precious life, so that's about a buck an hour. Only the cheapest of cheapskates can balk at that kinda logic, surely...
