I downloaded this thinking it was module for either a realistic or possibly less realistic yet action oriented adventure for an assault on the Bin Laden compound. Even if I never planned to run it with Bin Laden as the centerpiece of the adventure I thought it could be an excellent retrofit for any insurgent leader, drug lord, or crime boss ranging from an estate in Mexico City to a dacha on the Black Sea. It was none of these.

It's a comedy adventure. Bin Laden, the compound, etc, were simply designed with how many chuckles one could work in and not a cross genre usage. And gags weren't really all that funny; they felt obvious and easy like taking the newsbite about computers filled with porn and making Bin Laden into a perv. Too easy. If he had been made into a subtle parody of Skeletor or the Postmaster General that would have been cute.

Of course I don't own ROLF! And if this what ROLF does, an action parody game and not an action game, it doesn't interest me. As a GM far more likely to run realistic to cinematic military ops games this supplement contained nothing I could use. As preview item for ROLF it neither entertained me nor interested me in its parent system.
