Item-Level Details

Translated Into: El BarĂ³n Rojo (Spanish)
User Summary: You must discover who it was that shot down the Red Baron during World War I.
Demian's Thoughts:

It's not too surprising that a book about World War I would deal with the Red Baron, and this one does a pretty good job of it, though it might have been stronger had the reader been given an opportunity to know Richtofen better and thus be more emotionally affected by his ultimate demise. Perhaps that's a bit much to ask, though. The book's gameplay is decent; it does a nice job of avoiding the inventory-related infinite loop that I keep complaining about, and its choices often relate back to the data bank in meaningful ways. The book also happens to feature some interesting (and moodily dark) artwork.
