Given all the advances in technology, you wouldn't think that something which mimics a 20+ year old system of printed words and plastic dice would be all that entertaining. Then again, at it's heart that's what role playing games are all about. An Assassin In Orlandes goes even a step further, bringing you an authentic electronic replica of the old Choose Your Own Adventure / Fighting Fantasy style game books. And, unlike most modern computer role playing games, you actually get to roll the dice. Thankfully, though, you don't need paper and pencil to keep track of your stats. A smooth interface and excellent writing make this game a joy to read and play, and the fact that you can choose multiple paths in many spots gives it that extra replay value that many people desire. I think you'll find that the trip to Orlandes is certainly worth it.
