|User Summary:||One player, as the Black Knight, flees towards his castle after reclaiming a stolen family treasure while the other, as the Red Dragon, attempts to reclaim a friend the Knight kidnapped on the way out.|
I've only played through this once, and I died rather quickly, so my evaluation may be flawed. From what I saw, however, I'd have to say that this is a fun, if flawed, set. On the positive side, the game has some good player interaction through mini-games and frequent battles, and its turn-taking structure makes it ideal for e-mail or telephone-based games. On the down side, many of the rules are rather ambiguous (though it's not too hard to deal with these problems if the players can agree on what to do), and the story is rather weak, being mainly a seemingly random sequence of encounters eventually leading to a confrontation between the two player characters. This definitely isn't the best entry in the series, but it's not bad.
Revenge of the Red Dragon is solid, but nothing spectacular. The Red Dragon also seems to be considerably more powerful than the Black Knight (the Dragon has fire breath, can cast spells, and can use the faerie dragon against the Knight), so if you're playing as the Black Knight, you have very little margin for error in winning. As much as I like this gamebook, I wouldn't recommend it for a first time player, due to the competitive imbalance I just mentioned.
