Game is solid... Has a little steep of a learning curve. After you get the hang of the basic strategies and team composition etc. youll be golden. Still enjoying this title. Love Fantasy Flights tabletop games and this is a great adaptation. I do wish it would have a multiplayer component. but that is for another day.

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.

The game play heavily varies based on random draws. So you can play for 20 minutes then get a YOU LOSE set up with a couple of random bad draws.You can also get extremely easy random draws. So I never really felt like I won it just seemed random.

This could be a fun strategy game if your choices actually meant something. The random event draws were far more important than my characters or strategy. Disappointed.

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.
