If you like me you have read the Edgar Rice Boroughs books three times through you will instantly spot lots of differences. Nothing killing in the preview, but enough to show that they couldn't get the licence from his estate, so had to make changes. Still it is a well done preview, and makes you want to see more. Very good art, and I agree the Savage Worlds would be the system to go on this rather than the d20.

Looks good enough to make me want the full d20 version.

I needed the book after seeing the preview was enough to whet an appetite ready to game on Barsoom for a much needed change of pace.

As for those who claim that the material is not all that original, I think they miss the point that the material it is based on has been begging for a game setting for almost 100 years (in the case of the stories by Burroughs). I, for one, am glad someone put out a game like this to show just how enduring the novels that started the genre of Martian tales is.

If you appreciate Burroughs, then you will appreciate this game. For all of its flaws, both the literary works and this game, it is worth having on both counts. As a gamer who prefers settings that offer something out of the ordinary all I have to add is more of this, please.

I prefer the Savage Worlds edition of this game. Overall the designers know the source material very well. I wonder why it took so long to see a prodcut like this available on the rpg market.

Preview was good enough that I bought the full book.

But I must admit I liked Lizard's "Iron Lords of Jupiter" setting in Dragon Magazine better as it was more original.

Anyone familiar with the Sword and Planet stories (see Wikipedia for a good list) will appreciate this, and in some places the familiarity of the genre helps but does make the book a bit more generic than I'd like.
