Loved House of Danger. so bought this. Half way through we quit. It just wasn't fun, so why continue. Go to place X...you die. Go to place Y...you die. Our first planet and encounter was...you die. Game over. Okay...BORING. After getting half way it hadn't gotten any better. Clearly others like it as per their ratings, but we preferred the previous game.
If you grew up with the books it's nostalgic and fun in that nostalgic way, including humor targeting the age you were when you read the books. But as an adult though it's like playing Candy Land just about. It's not the worse thing I ever play, but if you are looking for anything more complex or entertaining that re-reading the books would be, you'll be disappointed as the game play has a complexity of 0.1 out of 5.
I loved House of Danger. The sequel is... decent. The ridiculous, over-the-top writing is still there. But the designers have made some choices that, while perhaps making a better product, make for a less fun experience. In HoD, you essentially play one long story. Yes, you only play once, but it was hilarious and immersive. Here, there's a lot more replayability but at the cost of the story. Each game is around a one-hour chunk, but you see less of the story, encouraging you to play again. For me, I'd rather have one full night of fun than several nights returning to something that's partially new (and a game system that works as far as it goes, but isn't that great) . I guess, I'm in for one night, maybe not five or six.
