25th Anniversary Edition: High quality reprint, low quantity of new material,
This review is from: The Warlock of Firetop Mountain: 25th Anniversary Edition (Fighting Fantasy) (Hardcover)
I stumbled across this re-issue by chance and was then lucky enough to pick up a copy signed by both the Authors (Jackson and Livingstone) though the description of the extras was enough to lure me into buying.
Straight to the extras, I managed to read through them all in about 20 minutes on the morning that the book arrived. Fair enough, they're all there as promised but definitely lacking in their depth and 'exclusive' status (a lot of the facts and bonus trivia I had already found on various fansites of the series).
The best bit about this book is the quality, it's a very thick hardback edition with the original title's artwork perfectly transferred. First thoughts were how great it would be if they re-released all the series in this identical format - it would certainly be the ultimate Fighting Fantasy collector's edition.
If you're buying this for the 'wealth of extras' that it promises, you may feel you have been sold slightly short. If you're buying this for a top quality reprint of a classic, in a collectors format, you'll probably be quite pleased.
