5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty much perfect RPG-lite ..., 24 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Descent: Journeys in the Dark Second Edition Board Game (Toy)
As opposed to some of the criticism this game has had I felt it was a fun game to be the GM (or Overlord as it is referred to in this game) as long as you play with the mindset of aiding the player characters as opposed to playing against them. I find this game to be a real social experience and lots of fun because of it.
As per usual with FFG games it chockfull with components amongst them to be some of the most beautiful & detailed mini's I have ever seen outside the wargaming scene. Also worthy of special mention are the tiles which all connect nicely without problems but most imortantly are friggin' gorgeously drawn. Some of the more intricate ones really evoke a sense of adventure and awe which is so needed in a high fantasy setting.
I feel that for the money you're spending you more than get your money's worth contentwise.
The game itself is solidly designed and I love that there's a campaign option coupled with a simple but cool levelling-up system. Definitely my fav board game and in essence an RPG-lite for people who lack the time to invest in a full-on RPG and therefore of course sacrificing a great deal of customisability but it's definitely worth it in my eyes.
