One of the most amazing features of a role playing game is that it enable us to be our heroes. We can be who we would like to be and do things that are impossible. And it should be fun!
An RPG that takes a well known hero and brings him close to us and enables us to play those heroes take a great risk. The risk of disappointing us.
That is what Cubicle 7 has done with the Doctor Who: Adventure in Time and Space RPG, take a risk. Both because people will have great expectations of the game,and secondly because it is a dear license for the BBC and great care has to be taken to portray the much loved TV series as well as possible.
So, has Cubicle’s 7 managed to create a product that lives up to the price you have to pay to get it and reflects the TV series to its best?
Let’s find out!
Great unboxing episode. My Dr. Who boxed se just came in the mail and my reaction was similar to your’s: outstanding production quality, simply stunning (and the dice really were the final touch that made me feel great about the purchase).
I just finished reading the game to review it and I have to say they’ve captured the spirit of the series marvelously. Although some of the photos look a bit silly (namely the vampires ones) the emphasis on wit and intelligence rather than violence and brute force is very well conveyed.
The adventures that come with the game also feel like real episodes of the series and are really fun.
Have a couple of minor criticism that I’ll leave for my review! 🙂
Looking forward to the review. Working my way thriugh the boxed set among other things, so just getting through character creation. Seems solid so far.
