With a plethora of horror games already on the market, I wondered how SHTG would fare. I'm happy to say I was not disappointed in it! The game rules are simple, but accurately detailed (which brings guesswork to a minimum). The art of the game can be considered a bit "quirky", but IMO it adds to the overall charm of the game. And MY GOD this game has an insane amount of product support! Take a quick look at all of the scenarios and packs it has! This obviously shows Darkmook's loyalty to their game.

The biggest downer for me is that this game is in no way printer-friendly. Thankfully, I have an ink cartridge refill kit, because you'll go through a TON of ink to print off everything you need. A rulebook that is printer-lite would make a world of difference. Also, the game isn't too heavy in the way of an RPG style (at least not the traditional RPG format), but that's a minor nit-pick I have. Luckily, there is a lot of room open for house rules, to which the game can easily convert to more of an RPG (using XP, class variants, etc.). Agin, minor nit-picks and not glaring flaws.

In the end, for what it's worth, SHTG is a stand-out in an already crowded game genre. It held my interest throughout, even if some concepts become a bit repetative. But, it's not enough to drag the game down, or make it a watered-down knock-off of other survival horror games. Personally, I would recommend SHTG to anyone who likes survival horror style games, and for its cost you definitely get a lot of bang-4-buck. Just make sure you're on good terms with your printer before you start playing the game.

Great game and I would give it 5 stars if the miniatures weren't so pixelated compared to Darkmooks other mini sets. Also it would be nice to have minis and manuals as separate documents.

Simple but alot of fun. With the unprecedented onslaught of zombie-themed games (seeing that the undead are looming large in our present day culture) its hard to pick one that covers all the bases, but for straight ahead playability you really cant go wrong with these rules.
