The Sentinels $0.00
Publisher: Green Ronin
by Damon B. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 04/06/2011 22:11:23
I have several issues with this product. To start with the most glaring, half of the files are Corel PORs, not very useful without an enhanced graphics program that can open them. Why not the more standard gif or jpg, or even PDFing them like the others?

The layout is sub-optimal, since if you're reading them instead of printing them you have to scroll past large stat blocs to resume the text. This could easily have been prevented if the M&M2E style of having the stats up top and the text below had been adhered to.

The characters feel unfinished, if not bland. Unsurprisingly, the one that's the most developed (Ultramarine) is also the only one with three pages. The Rook also has potential (homage characters having almost as long a pedigree as Masked Adventurers), but pretty much comes off as a less stalkerish version of Blackbird II From Frredom's Most Wanted.

Most damning of all, it makes Emerald City seem like a rather boring place to play.

It does get a star for the Villain Notes, since at least three of the 'heroes' feel more like villain of the week material. Another star for the price, which makes this easier to take a chance on.

I'm sure several of these issues will be addressed when the writers revise the product after they develop a better feel for what they want the Em City to be, but until then it just doesn't do it for me.
