Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
As a book, I think this is a pretty entertaining concept and is nicely presented. However, it was clearly listed as a game and even claims to be one on the back cover! However, upon closer interior examination, it becomes evident that although everything is presented in the form of a game (the characters have "power meters", they each have a list of moves they can do, etc), it is actually just cleverly presented data on each type of warrior and an analysis of the two battling warriors' weapons and styles. Having read all the information about the two combatants, the reader turns the page to find that the winner is pre-determined and the following two pages explain why a samurai (for example) would always defeat a Zulu warrior. There is absolutely no gameplay involved at any stage. My son is 7 and greatly interested by history and war, and this is exactly the sort of book he will enjoy pouring over again and again, and in that regard I would call this a 4-star book. However, the clear misrepresentation in suggesting that it is a playable game has forced me to lower my rating to 3 stars. That said, if you have a young bloodthirsty male in the house, there is a good chance that this is the kind of book that could keep them quiet for hours (well, minutes anyway) at a time.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book (it's not a game, despite what info others may have seen) attempts to pit warriors from different eras against one another. Essentially, if you've seen the TV series `Deadliest Warrior' then you'll know what this book is trying to emulate. In fact, this book comes across as being written by someone who's seen the show and then decided to write down what was on it (even seven of the ten combatants are the same as featured on the TV series, and one's only a slight variation - female rather than male), only a low-tech version without the help of a combat simulator which, once all the relevant data is inputted, re-enacts 1,000 fights to determine the winner, instead just making a basic decision to decide which warrior won (i.e. this one won because he had better armour or a better weapon, it really is as simple as that). To be honest, the lack of build up and anticipation makes the `results' almost worthless.

The book is nicely presented; the hardback cover's a little different and is split down the middle, opening both ways, as if opening up (I imagine) to represent something like a gladiatorial arena, of sorts, which is a nice touch. There is a little historical, nutritional and weapon info on each competitor, but overall I feel it's rather lacking. Perhaps it's having seen the TV show that makes this compare unfavourably, but if you too have seen it then I'm sure you're quite likely to feel short-changed by this book, you might as well just make up your own match-ups and decide for yourself who wins.

I'd pretty much say that if you've seen `Deadliest Warrior' then don't bother with this book as it'll be a disappointment, if you haven't seen DW then by all means, pick this up and if at least the concept whets your appetite then go and watch the TV show and see it done properly.

The concept for this book positively roils with testosterone. It's probably one of the most "boy" things I've ever seen. I can relate to it entirely, since I'm fascinated with history as well as imagining "who would win in a fight" - two passions that I share with my young nephew. So we were excited to open up this book, or as it styles itself: game system.

The "fights" work thusly: there's an information spread for each fighter that catalogues their weaponry, strengths, and weaknesses. This is informative and generally accurate, and it's fun to read. Then the book does something strange: it chooses the winner for you, often on completely arbitrary grounds. Granted, such hypothetical duels are silly by their very nature, yet I was hoping for a "top trumps" style confrontation where we could take turns choosing a facet of the warrior and see who would win. The game later encourages players to decide for themselves, which is what it should have done in the first place.

We soon realised that it would be just as easy to "play" the game by looking up articles about the warriors online and comparing them that way.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My son was very impressed when he opened this book up and he spent about an hour playing with it. Sadly after the initial rush of enthusiasm for this new toy, he soon lost interest having exhausted all of the options. it's not that the product is bad at all, it is just that he found that it was very limited and even he questionned how they could assess that a samurai warrior could beet a Roman legionary: they fought completely differently, the former generally as an individual and the latter as part of a unit: effectively would a 80 samurai defeat 80 legionaries? Probably not.

The upshot is, if you want a short lived book/game, this is ok.

I got this book for my 11 year old nephew and I wanted to make sure it wasn't too violent and also provided a historical perspective. I wasn't disappointed ! The book is presented in a very easy to read format and has several hidden gems of information behind it's novel cover. The book takes the reader through the history of the worlds best known warriors, is well illustrated and also uses photo's from films, which my nephew could relate to.

On the whole a good compromise between a factual history book and an exciting adventure story. My only comment was that there wasn't as much content as I had expected.
