Demian's Thoughts:

The novel in this package isn't terribly good, and as in the last package, integration between the novel and the gamebook is quite poor. Fortunately, these flaws are largely made up for by the quality of the gamebook, which provides a nice variety of situations, an interesting setting, and some nasty setbacks to your score when luck goes bad for too long. There's a lot of droid-killing, which brings back memories of the Bartokk-slaying missions early in the series, but this isn't just a rehash of earlier volumes. If not for the annoying novel integration problems, this would be an above-average adventure.

Errata:On page 40, the Aim skill is accidentally referred to as the Marksmanship skill; this is probably a relic from an earlier draft.
