Demian's Thoughts: While reading this book, I did realize that I owe a lot of my appreciation of Lone Wolf to nostalgia. While I still give the series plenty of credit for its fun system and its story continuity, I think that I would find its shallow characters and silly location names a lot less thrilling if not for the fact that I know they were created by Joe Dever. I guess I still cannot claim to be unbiased. That being said, this was yet another fun adventure. It's highly replayable since the first choice leads to two different story branches that allow wildly different events to be experienced during the first half of the story. After that, it's time for some reunions and daring deeds leading up to a gigantic cliffhanger. Of course, it could have benefit from better characterization (I dare you to tell two Lone Wolf characters apart) and some elaboration (much of the adventure feels a little bit rushed), but it's Lone Wolf. It's hard not to enjoy it, flaws and all.
