As a long term fan of the gamebook genre, I *really* wanted to love Appointment with F.E.A.R.

Unfortunately the new comic book presentation gets in the way for me: It's hard to become immersed when each passage is so very brief, requiring a tap to advance the plot every sentence or so. Perhaps more importantly, any sense of nostalgia for the original paperback is lost.

That isn't to say that Appointment with F.E.A.R. is bad. Ironically, the very same pace-breaking presentation, is visually attractive (so much so, that it would suit a new, purpose written gamebook that is devoid of any nostalgic baggage). The overall quality of presentation is great, beautiful artwork etc. I get the sense that it's been lovingly crafted.

However, I can't help but feel that Tin Man Games would have found it considerably easier, and garnered more appreciation from die hard FF fans, had they stuck to the original text more rigidly, either by employing their old gamebook engine, or by ensuring each text block contained all of the equivalent location text from the paperback's text (i.e. like Inkle's Sorcery! conversion).

In summary, if you're looking for a nostalgic gamebook adventure, this probably isn't the best choice (the previous Tin Man Games Fighting Fantasy conversions are absolutely brilliant though). If, on the other hand, you're less encumbered by memories of the original books, then you may find this more appealing.



I remember purchasing this book when it was first released. After all these years I thought I'd re-read it again and I love the comic book style they have done with this story complete with the sound effects, you can tell it was done with a lot of love and respect for the original book.

Great update of a classic gamebook!

Tin Man Games have done a wonderful job of updating this gamebook classic. The comic book designs are cool, there are many different story paths to explore and the collectible cards are a neat bonus. Highly recommended!!
