I wanted a superhero RPG that was simple AND fun. Hero Force is both. I have been looking for a game like this for a long time. I think it is a great way to introduce people to RPGs. Simple mechanic, strong on flavor and low on crunch yet still more fun than you can shake your cape at!!! And when I say simple mechanic, I mean simple mechanic. Roll a 1d6 under stat + skill to succeed. A 1 is an automatic success and 6 is an automatic failure. I know it doesn't seem possible, but this system really works. My first game ran about 3 hours including character creation and printing out the rules!!!!
The price is definitely right with this game. For $3.95, as far as RPGs go these days, it is practically free and worth every penny. It comes with 5 ready-made scenarios, each one a blast.
Those of you who like rules heavy and crunchy games, this game may not be for you, but if you are looking for a light alternative the next time too many of your players bow out at the last minute of the weekly meeting, you can't do better than Hero Force! <br><br>
