Under rating threshold (show) I'm actually surprised...I've gone from liking this..to hating it..to having it grow on me like moss. The challenges suck..they do.. But, the computer gaining a rank..really isn't that big of an issue. The main game...I'm amazed at how fun, exiting, tense things get. When you're both low on health..both insane..it gets your blood flowing.

Under rating threshold (show) This game perfetly captures the meaning of Lovecraft's stories: You have no control, you are the pawn of outer beings. The randomness is just a way to drive you insane, because you are not in complete control.

Under rating threshold (show) Fun game, i quite enjoyed it. However, some of the challenges left the realm of "game" entirely and just became entirely random events where you either get incredibly lucky or instantly lose. Challenge 15 was the worst. 10 of the 36 available cards can insta-kill you in that challenge, and the PC gets to draw 5. I played that challenge 116 times. 115 losses, with 72 of those coming on the very first card the PC played.

Under rating threshold (show) Core game is fun, but Challenge Mode is a joke. Trying to claim "challenge" in a random-draw system is just pseudo-difficulty. It isn't actually hard, it's just a matter of trying enough times to get the right cards.

Under rating threshold (show) In challenge 15, I maintained my 5 life all the way, but I was invulnerable and the opponent was dying from megalomania. He would already have died if he could die from taint. In true Necronomicon fashion, I didn't manage to draw anything that I could attack him with, but he attacked me twice in a row and I lost. Fffffuuuuu-

Under rating threshold (show) Since Challenge Mode doesn't require any player skill other than luck, i guess this is the easiest impossible badge. Indeed a maddening game. But Chtulhu Mythos is supposed to be like this.

Under rating threshold (show) basically challenges 15-17 are luck - think of it as trying to roll 6 6's on dice or something -- one interesting note, i have never gotten value from 'city of r'yleh' the one where opp goes insane because his very next card kills me -- its almost as if its programmed that way

Under rating threshold (show) The Impossible badge is meant to be extremely hard or very time consuming. In this case it was just time consuming eventually you will get it, just the probability is like 1/300 that is if you know the right card to play in every situation.

Under rating threshold (show) Miles, you have played the challenges right? Story mode is perfectly easy, sometimes too easy, but the challenge mode, a lot of them are absolutely ridiculous. And I've figured the major issue for a lot of them (especially challenge 13 and 15) is the fact that you have so little health, literally every single attack card except one will kill you in one go. The only way you could have possibly done good for challenge 15 is starting with a lucky hand and the AI deciding to be an idiot. This game is great, the challenges are not.
