Demian's Thoughts:

This is a pretty good book. The game design is interesting, offering lots of choices and more flexibility than usual; there are some branches of the story that can be avoided, and it's even possible to lose the Free-For-All (which surprised me, since I figured victory would be inevitable). Although the extra possibilities of the book make it feel a bit less linear than usual, they bear a price; the gamebook and the novel fit together very poorly, and unless you take on the role of Major Fassa and do exceptionally well, the end of the novel will totally fail to match the events in the gamebook. This is too bad, as the inconsistency at the end dramatically reduced my opinion of an otherwise excellent book.

Character Cards Included - Major Fassa, Captain Tarpals
Vehicle Cards Included - Kaadu, Hydrotoboggan
Device Cards Included - Cesta, Slingshot
Power Cards Included - Diving

My Starting Score - 7450
My Ending Score - 7987

Errata:On page 80, you are instructed to do one thing if your adventure# is equal to or more than 14 or a different thing if it is less than 17. This presents an obvious inconsistency, but it is unclear which number is the correct one.
