I'm a big talisman fan and was happy to see it! but after I played it for some time I got bored. It was singleplayer. no multiplayer options at ALL. Another thing I hate is that there is no save feature. Can you amagine playing talisman with no friends, in ONE sitting!? I can't! They have more charecters which is slightly more enjoyable, but I never end up using them. With the price, EVEN IF IT IS SMALL is not a good deal. this gets a 3/10

An excellent way to learn Talisman. Get used to the game, learn about the different characters you can choose and how they differ, and generally get your skills and enthusiasim up to the point where you are ready to get the full game (Talisman Digital Edition). That is what worked for me - learning the game via the Prologue edition, totally getting into the full game along with the expansions, and then also adding the Talisman Board game along with the Reaper and Frostmarch expansins to my board game library. For me Prologue was well worth the modest price.

Note: This is/was one of the Steam products with the Data Execution Prevention BS - a real major bummer . This issue, although eventually resolved, resulted in reconsideration of whether this amount of stress was worth sticking with STEAM. I am still here and I enjoy most of my STEAM games, but that was overall my worst expereince with STEAM and a game bought from them.

A friend gifted this to me, and for that I'm obviously grateful to him...we and a few other friends used to play the original (well, 2nd edition) board game TO DEATH back in the 90s, and more recently, another one of these friends rebought the ♥♥♥♥ing thing (4th edition), allowing me to get just a teeny weeny bit "sick" of it all over again. Ah, memories! I must admit to still being fascinated to see how this would all translate into a VIDEO GAME, however, so while this is merely the single player "prologue" to the multiplayer version (which has since been released), I must say I was quite impressed with how extraordinarily faithful the whole adaptation appears to be.

I say "appears to be", as I've only played so much of it, but enough to confidently opine that apart from reducing the epic "get-to-the-middle-region-first-and-murder-the-♥♥♥♥-out-of-the-other-players-to-achieve-world-domination" mega-quest of the board game to a number of small, character-specific mini-missions, it's, well...it's pretty much the board game. Or at least a limited version of it, as this particular game doesn't have anywhere near all the characters, expansions, etc etc...though to the best of my understanding, the fully-blown Talisman: Digital Edition does or at least will do over time, and assuming its objective is to be as slavishly faithful to the source material as this prologue game, I can't see that anyone looking for a video game adaptation of Talisman is liable to be disappointed. As for me, personally, right at this moment in time...I might have to give such a prospect a miss for now, not least of all because of that friend I still have who's only half-a-suburb away who, unlike myself, is probably up for reliving our wild 'n' reckless glory days of rolling dice and shuffling cards at relatively short notice. I'm a bit over it all, truth be told, and have more than adequately sated my sentimentality for the time being, so I think I'll ♥♥♥♥ away my time with other, less painfully overfamiliar games (be they of a digital or more tactile nature; I still play board games, just not this one when I can help it).

Back to the Prologue for a moment, though. This particular product would no doubt provide an adequate "training ground" for those too daunted to leap straight into the multiplayer game, though I can't imagine you'd get much replay value out of it beyond that. Still, it's cheap enough, especially in a sale, and if you've never played a board game in any way, shape or form - or at least not one more complicated than Snakes 'N' Ladders or Trivial Pursuit - then this may give you an idea what dyed-in-the-wool nerds USED to do before video games progressed beyond one bunch of ugly pixels shooting at another bunch of ugly pixels with little dots or dashes for ammunition.

Verdict: 7.5/10.

Pros:

Quicker game play than the full Digital Edition
Useful for learning the rules and character nuances in Talisman: Digital Edition



Cons:

Can't save the game. They definitely need to fix this. (Seriously, Nomad, what are you thinking here?)
Game play can get extremely redundant with only one character on the board.




Verdict:

Worth buying when it goes on sale, if:

* You already know you really want it
* The Digital Edition confuses you and you want to practice the nuances of the game
* You're a compulsive collector like me
* You're not going to bother with the Digital Edition anyway

If none of those apply, then I'd say don't bother.

Прежде всего стоит сказать, что это - очень хорошее воплощение - но настольной игры. Причём игры достаточно простой, так что геймплей ощущается как бедноватый. Ну, и сама игра, я так полагаю, изначально рассчитывалась на несколько игроков, что, естественно, тоже сказывается. Фактически, всё, что вы делаете - это кидаете кубики, ходите по карте из двух дюжин клеток, да тянете карты на каждой клетке, пока не добьётесь поставленной цели. В текущем - соло - варианте у каждого класса пять разных квестов, которые, по всей видимости, прежде всего и рассчитаны на то, чтобы дать понять, как же этими классами играть в многопользовательском варианте. Собственно, игра и не скрывается, называя себя "Прологом". Уверен, что в мультиплейерном варианте (который тоже есть на Стиме) играть гораздо веселее. Впрочем, если рассматривать Talisman: Prologue как спокойный, хоть и несколько хаотичный пасьянс, эта игра вполне неплоха.

Difference Between Talisman Digital Edition & Talisman Prologue

Talisman Digital Edition is the multiplayer form of the game, so you can play with other players or against the AI. Talisman Prologue is completely a solo single player experience, so you will strictly play against the Adventure Cards. Nomad Games does take it a step further than that, and they have quests designed per character on the main menu. They also have characters available that are not currently available in Talisman Digital Edition.

Just know that once you complete the quest, the game ends, whether you made it to the crown or not. The only quest in Talisman Prologue that allows you to go all the way to the Crown of Command is The Magical Quest. Some characters only have The Magical Quest available to them with no other quest options. There is a distinct difference in the two games. Be sure you’re buying the game version that will suit your play style, unless you want both, then more power to you. Truthfully I think picking one or the other would be best, especially if you’re not sure whether you are going to like it or not.

This is quite literally Solo, not a "single player experience", its a single character experience, its just you and you are alone WITHOUT even computer controlled (AI) players, as one would expect by it being a boardgame.
You wont get anything of value from Talisman: Prologue, accept if you are a huge fanatic of game specific achievment chasing.
In prologue you are simply chasing trivial goals, for no real purpose than to achieve them, save your cash for the digital version.
Even at less than $2.00, I feel its wasted money, and a completly pointless purchase.

Definitely a 'Prologue' (introduction) to the Talisman Digital Edition. Consider this to be a tutorial to the extreme, enough to be able to sell it seperately.

I consider it more of an occasional distraction, probably not one of those games that you feel like playing for hours on end...but one of those that you 'pull off of the shelf' here and there.

After playing Talisman Digital Edition, I will say that I did miss the quests. Ultimately, it could be cool to blend the two and introduce individual quests into the Digital Edition.

It seems that, at the least, Prologue will either be a quick distraction, or it will be one of those that you will enjoy here and there. (Obviously there is the possibility that it may just 'click' and it is played to completion).

In other words, for the price ... not too bad. I enjoyed it so far, but for me it is here and there. It would seem hard to go wrong if you can get it in a bundle or, as currently under a couple bucks. (I'm buying a couple extra as gifts ... can't go too wrong for that price and maybe they will go for the Digital Edition and we can do multiplayer...)

Talisman: Prologue is a proof of concept formed as a commercial product.
As such, it's not interesting for more than an hour or two - unlike the full game, Talisman Digital Edition, which I wholly recommend and which includes this game as a separate download.

If you like talisman and can get Prologue it cheap, give it a try. In all other cases, avoid.

Although, I bought two versions of Talisman (Prologue and Digital Edition), I started with this. Yes, I got a good experience, playing and learning different characters, their advantages. This helps me to know the game, its rules. But after some games, this solo adventure starts to bother me. Quests quite frankly aren't interesting. Often you need to get to some place or monster, and you roll dice one by one until you get exactly you need (Sometimes I spent more than 20-25 turns just only to be on the same space as my quest's task). I don't persuade to buy Talisman, but don't waste money, buy original Talisman: Digital Edition, where you get better experience, fun and enjoyment playing with friends or bots. There you will not only roll dices, but also think about your next steps.

There is so little to really DO in this game. Player decisions are very limited. The game almost plays by itself.

Faithful recreation of a board-game look and feel is nice. But there is too little 'game' in this game.

This IS the classic board game I used to play. What a GREAT game this was. The Prologue edition can be played solo. The deluxe can be played with others.
This game used to have a few expansion packs that are being added to this version.

If you ever played Talisman back in the day, get this! You will remember why you loved it!

A great job at showing how to finally bring this fun fantasy board game to the PC. While there's plenty of life in this version, there's a lot that would be added by getting the multiplayer version once it's out of early access. Many characters have a ton of quests tied to them to try to beat as well as the randomness of the core game. Hopefully once the multiplayer is out we will see the other board game expansions translated to the PC version.

First off: I absolutely adore boardgames. I own many and play regularly with my friends in real life and online friends through VASSAL.

I always wanted Talisman (and subsequently Relic) based on their generally favorable reviews and the description of the game. I like similar games of the genre and planned on buying it down the road.

Luckily I got the prologue in a game bundle somewhere so I could finally try it.

I can't really say it's a horrible game, but to me it's really not that fun. Sure, this is a single player-based version and in a digital format, but the core mechanics are just rather bland.
Reading the reviews on Steam before I got it I figured most of the negative feedback was based on people not well versed in boardgames and assumed they may just not have a taste for them. It truly is bland, however.

The biggest problem I think stems from the complete lack of choices, tactics, and strategies. It really is random. Not just in combat, like most tabletop games, but every aspect is controlled for you. The game essentially boils down to what direction you want to travel and making a choice on the off-chance you land on somewhere interactive.

All in all I know I will never buy the boardgame. If a friend had it I may just try it to see if it's any better in person and with friends, but we have so many better games to play I'm sure it would be a one time thing. I know I'll probably never revisit the video game.

This game is utterly boring, just rolling dice and not even a match against AI. Just you and the board.
I expected more from this game.

Okay I never played the board game version of Talisman(Read: Non digital), but I was interested in it, I just did not see the point of spending 75 bucks for a game I might only play like maybe once a year. Then this came out, along with Talisman: Digital Edition, and I must say I reccomend them both, for different reasons. You see in Talisman: Digital Edition you get to play online or off and are up against up to 3 other human/AI players, it is fun and is a true original edition of Talisman(Or at least from what I read), but this one is different, you see in this one you play all by yourself, and you are on some kind of a adventure ranging from getting the crown of control in the magical quest, to something as simple as finding a cave for the Troll(Harder then it sounds actually especially with the turn limit of 20) This has way more of a D&D feel to it then the normal version because of these quests, since your not just playing as a random character through one quest anymore,you can take a character through something of a small campaign of 6 total quests, and while you do not get to keep your items, or stats from game to game, it adds a certain level of interest and intrigue to these characters that the original lacks. Of course this is also a problem with this game too, you see apparently they decided to add some new characters in there, but then wasted some of their potential by not giving them their own campaigns and more or less just gave them the magical quest. (The one for the crown of control) These include the Vampire Hunter, Amazon, Minotaur, Leprechaun, Sprite, Sage etc. if you buy this you will know them, put this with the unfortunate circumstance that it does not appear that they will update, or give this a expansion to give these characters their own campaigns and it leads to a lot of wasted potential, in addition it would be great if they not only did this but came out with exapnsions for other characters as well, and put a nice campaign with them as well, (The Knight for instance). and while I will admit this is not Talisman proper, both this version and the Digital Edition has their places. This is for the fams that like the idea of different stories, and quests to do with the characters and don't mind going solo, where the other is for the fans of the game that really don't care about that. Overall a excellent game and well worth the purchase.

Graphics: The board looks great, the artwork is nice, it is a step down on somethings from the digital edition, but the graphics are still good enough to please any fan, or anyone curious. 8/10

Controls: Simple to control and fast and responsive. 10/10

Value: I set my price for games at about 2 bucks per hour of play time I get out of them. I have already got the full 6.99 plus out of this and I am not even close to completing (much less mastering) all the quests. So yeah well worth it. 10/10

Achievements: What are those? LOL, no seriously though, other then cards I have not noticed any. Not that there is any scroe for this, but if your a achievement hog, this might not be the game for you.

Fun Factor: This of course will vary by person, or sometimes how long a particular quest takes(It can be brutal) but overall I give it a 8/10 It's not perfect, but it is fun and interesting.

In the end: If you are just a fan of Talisman the game and don't care so much for additional quests, maybe you would consider them mini campaigns/side quests, then this might not be the game for you. If you love Talisman and are not afraid to try something different with the game, you may want to check this out, if your a fan of adventure boardgames and don't mind going solo, go for both this and the digital edition. You won't be sorry.

Like the board game except without other players. That's on the DE version. This needs a save function! Otherwise, good price especially for the $1.74 sale currently on Steam.

Well, this was cheap, so I bought it to pass a little time until I grab Talisman HD.

Unfortunately a few minutes was all I could stand. While the game itself is good, the board game mechanics are implemented reasonably well, there's one factor that's impossible to avoid, which in itself makes the whole Prologue idea redundant: It's single player.

Thankfully, one of it's saving graces is the price, otherwise this would seem like a quite cynical move (wholly expected of Games Workshop i'd have to say, though I doubt they had much input into any of the games save charging a small fortune for the license - and no, i'm not a fan.)

Talisman is a great boardgame, but it's multiplayer. Would anybody buy a single player version of Monopoly before you bought the full MP game? Of course not. Save your money, put it towards buying the HD edition.

Oh Talisman, you have sucked up so much of my boardgame playing time, and I loved almost all of it. This is a pretty darn good recreation of the basic vanilla Talisman boardgame with a few extra characters. I'm not sure if there are more end quests to unlock or not yet, having only played through once, but it's possible, given that the game's introductory screen asks players to choose a character and an end quest. I have only played the original Crown of Command one, because I don't see any choices for the end quest yet, but still... possibilities. Anyway, this is a single player only version of the game, and because it's faithful to the original, it includes turn loss cards and effects, which have no meaning in single player. Other than that and a couple oddities with the play itself that are evidently being ironed out by the devs, this is solid Talisman fun. Check out Talisman Digital Edition for the full game including expansions and multiplayer. And check this out if you want to spend an hour or two playing an old boardgame friend.
