Is “Just as good” not good enough?
In this generation of “Is 'X' game a 'Y' Killer?” mentality, and the perceived nature of the battle for shelf space, Is “Just as Good as it's predecessor” good enough to earn a title a place in your collection? Between Two Castles of Mad King Ludwig is a great interweaving of the aspects from Between Two Cities and The Castles of Mad King Ludwig but it doesn't exceed or “replace” either title. It is a good game that I anticipate seeing plenty of times on my table but if the core audience for this release are fans of one or both titles, maybe that isn't enough.
