    I am not a huge fan of generic roleplaying systems, and in general prefer my games with more fantasy, but I can see the appeal and appreciate the hard work put into this product.

    A real nice point-based system. There are different levels of purchases limits according of the campaign you plan to run (cinematic, realistic...).

    Amongst all noteworthy features I especiallt appreciated the vast list of advantages & disadvantages that (albeit there's quite nothing new here) all have their base levels and costs carefully estimated and compared one to another. The skill list is also impressive with the possibility to buy a skill, boost a specialization or buy a whole skill group, each with distinct costs. Combat also offer quite an awesome numbers of choices, like action points (read hero points) do.

    All in all a very open system if you have the time to finely tune & tailor it to your campaign. I'll keep on using the (dis)advantageskists nearby for all games I sometimes play that are none.

    Great pick.

    Good game for action/adventure RPGs. It is designed to focus on "realism", so no super science or magic, but perfect for say a spy, detective, cop or any other type of action game.

    ACTION! offers a system that can support a variety of settings. It's a nice little system if you haven't settled on one to focus on, but it really doesn't offer much in the way that it resolves the usual mechanics for a game being played. Lots of potential if you have the time to invest.

    A generic system, using point-buy to gain a character traits and skills in the way the player wants. If you're tired of systems that shoehorn you into certain roles, check this out for freedom. And its free!<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: It's an alternative to d20. It has a whole lot of skill variety.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Coudln't find any rules that replicate spellcasting.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Acceptable<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>
