There are a couple of standard elements I want from...

Takes my breath away.

Fascinating! Thanks for the review MB.

And here I am, without an opportunity to complain about a plastic replica of Tom Cruise vs. a cardboard chit of Val Kilmer.

I cannot express what an unexpected take doing the volleyball/dogfight bifurcation is in a *licensed game*. This seems like the sort of longshot art angle you pitch in a meeting that is immediately shot down by the IP holder or the company business person. I'm still not super interested but wow.

Yes it does. I get a sense that this was a low stakes, hands-off licensing deal- really just the brand, logo, and character names. They were probably just given carte blanche on it.

I have been involved in many game pitches. I can picture the look I would get if I said "okay, so you play a volleyball match, and THAT affects the dogfight" :D

It's nice to see a game with a jetfighter on it be so lighthearted.

Good review -- I continue to enjoy this game. Probably the best entry level dogfighting game you could get. I keep trying to pull off the "flipping the bird" move, but it is quite difficult (I love that you can invert your plane for no other reason than to brag that you did the maneuver). Enough bluffing in both parts of the game to make it fun.

Solid work by Prospero Hall -- not as good as Jaws, probably, but still does the IP justice. Excited to see what they do with The Shining

I was excited about The Shining until I saw that it will be a traitor game. That's probably the right match between license and setting, but it's hard to get excited about yet another traitor game. Might still be great if they have other elements that help deliver the setting and themes. I am curious to see what they do with the board, if any.
