The setting is fascinating, well put together, detailed and where there are shortfalls the writers have offered ideas from other media as handy hints.

The base system is very simple, roll 2d10+skill/stat against a static target number, however it can get a little mathematical when you add in various positive and negative modifiers. Once you get the hang of it, it becomes very simple to remember and use.

It's basically the same system used by SLA Industries but with fewer variables to remember.

All in all, I'm looking forward to continue playing and running the game.

4/5 stars easily.

Disclaimer: I'm a freelancer who plans on submitting material for this game, and also friends with some of the writers. That said, I got to know them precisely because I found their game so compelling.

This is probably one of the best settings to appear in tabletop RPGs in a decade. "Steampunk zombie apocalypse" is a great elevator pitch, but it barely does the game justice. The world of Unhallowed is carefully thought out, internally consistent, richly detailed, unflinchingly dark, and yet easy to understand. I don't think fans of gothic/horror games have had a playground this interesting since Vampire came out.

When I bought Unhallowed Metropolis I was impressed with thr setting. It is very well written and detailled. The artwork is also quite nice although it is prartially sexist.

So why did I rate this game with only 2 stars?
The reason is the horrible system. The base mechanic is simple but then you have to add various factors as well even more than in other more complex rpgs I wrote.

Add to this wrongly calculated advantages and disadvantages, the missing balance, unclear rulings and other errors in combination with a non-existing customer support (it is really not existing. Mails or posts on the publisher's message board are not answered by the author or any other employee).

So it is good material for conversions but that's it.
