Demian's Thoughts:

This book doesn't have the unconventional options or humor of the previous entry in the series, so it's not nearly as much fun. It's not too bad, though.

kleme's Thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book, despite its lack of continuity. As often happens in many game books, who and what people are changes depending on the choices you make. There is an air of mystery that is exciting, but I think the premise could have been done a bit better. I guess I was hoping for something along the lines of Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express.

A side note: the railway featured in the book is actually named the "Train of Terror." I don't know about you, but I think that would've been a clue that something might be up.
