I bought it although my favourite board game of the franchise is Arkham Horror.

First impressions are positive: the game looks nice, loading of the screens is fast and smooth, and graphics of characters common with Arkham Horror are nice and shown in quite high resolution.

Second impression is mixed: the game is hard, and tutorial is really crappy. It said that drawing of the tokens is random, but it doesn't explain that the tokens are actually d6 dice, so in the beggining you have no idea what the odds are. Also I think that it didn't explain, that blocking of the dice by monters, etc. is global, so removing these blocks are usually do-or-die decisions.

Now that I have come to understand the rules better I am extremely happy with the game, and must admit, that it gives exactly the same kind of thrill as much more complicated Arkham Horror. Plus setting up the game doesn't take hours as in tabetop version ;)

With its haunting music and beautiful artwork the game draw's you into the Cthulhu Mythos. But be warned this game can be hard but not to the point of frustration. When your fearless party expire to death or insanity, it makes you want to jump back in and take the fight to the old one's.
The aim of the game is pick four investigators and use these heroes to thwart the Old Ones plans. Each of the investigators start with some form of benefit and with the right combination you have a good chance to succeed. The game is easy to pickup and play and highly recommend it for Cthulhu buffs.

I played this game for quite a while. And I like it - yeah it gives the table-top some computer conversion and this is fun to play. The great old ones are tough to beat and you need some good strategies, but those strategies also might fail.

Since this game has some random element as most tabletops or card games, you can either fail through bad luck or by using the wrong *ahem* investigator on the wrong playground. I just hope that there will be some expansions for the game, since there are still a lot of great old ones missing ...

Tabletop fans will love this game, most other players might get hit at the head because of the many trial and error experiences this game might offer. But on the other hand, not all games can be won. I managed to beat Yig and Tsathoggua, and the last one with very much effort - so yeah, I beat them but I didn't master the game. I like this insecurity, sometimes dice will get locked... which of course even offers more suspense and frustration at the same time.

Always keep the special abillities of your investigators in mind - it will give the edge you need to get your foe down.

Solid 9/10 for playabillity and fun.

Fun, highly addictive casual game. Just my cuppa for a Lovecraftian fix. Consider if you're a fan of Arkham Horror & other similar titles from FFG. ;-) The music is very well done, I suggest trying it loud if you're able to & you'll hear the low rumbles, climbing cresendos that really add to the ambience. Although some players have complained that the music is repetative, it's easily disabled. Now if they'd come up with something 40kish along these lines, oh my! (Relic the board game or what have ya). Hmmm =)a

p.s. I'm playing this on a netbook w/ 2gigs of mem < way underpowered for most tings, but this plays well.

Although this game has very nice concept, good gameplay, sound, graphics, etc. I think it needs some adjustment. I spent a couple of hours learning how to use the various glyphs and such, I played many many rounds but no matter what I could never ever win. Either I am missing something very important about how to play, in which case it needs a better tutorial, or the game is simply made to be far too impossible to be fun to play.

Watch This: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jh4nSpV2n4k before you play, after that it should be pretty smooth sailing. I did not find the ingame tutorials particularly helpful.

I've never played the board game version of this, but I am a board game fan, so I took to this game pretty quickly. Great fun, played it with my girlfriend, we both played two different characters (though this game is not technically multiplayer). This game is hard, perhaps thats why it really gives me "roguelike" feels while playing. I really enjoyed it overall, I'd recommened it to friends looking to kill time. Unfortunately it being single player I feel the game loses some of the charm and fun that it would have as a board game played with friends.
