|Demian's Thoughts:||I was looking forward to re-reading this book, as I remember enjoying it when I last played through it. Alas, I was rather disappointed -- the book's story doesn't stray far from the "young, inexperienced hero on a dangerous mission" formula that defines most of the books in this series, and the writing is fairly weak, with unengaging characters and quite a few amateurishly overblown attempts at artistic descriptions. The gameplay does deserve a bit of credit, as it is quite challenging to reach the optimal ending, and many of the decisions are both interesting and tough. Unfortunately, it is not without flaws, and for every challenging decision, there is an obvious or unsatisfying one. There's also a lot of text between choices, so unless you're very patient, the adventure seems to lag a lot of the time. This book isn't a complete waste of time, but it's definitely not a classic.|
|Fireguard's Thoughts:||Vision of Doom is a decent but unremarkable book. The writing and adventure are nothing too special, especially this late in the series, and I'm not sure why Kirchoff bothered to make the villain a vampire, unless it was just a reason to make the reader decide between finding him and finding the magical doohickey he's after. While I won't say this is a bad book, I have read better. And scarier.|
