Yes, well-written review, Tof. As you say, I can't imagine this game will appeal to people who are not already fans of both Talisman and 40k, and even for those of us who are, it's fine but just missing any kind of wow factor. I'd probably rather just play Talisman, or some other game (Pathfinders!) for now, but hopefully Nomad will find a way to update it and spice it up a little somehow.
