    STAR FRONTIERS was a great 80's game that started me on role-playing games. The combat system is all percentage based and meant to be fast. You will be amazed at the way it integrates melee, the futuristic ranged weapons, vehicle and aerial combat at the same time (well-placed projectile shot? Roll "Roll and Burn!") Other strengths are the notes on being a referee (game-master) and adventure design, a helping hand to keep new players from being lost. The book combines the Basic Rules (what we would call a quick-start today), the Expanded Rules, and an adventure module SF0: CRASH ON VOLTURNUS.

    This book is reformatted from the original, and represents some serious effort from someone who cares about the game. New art and layout but everything is where you expect to find it if you've played from the original books. I like everything about the book except for two things: 1. Pages have no margins, and this is a problem at the seam, where you have to pull the book open a little in some cases to see the right hand side of the left page and the left hand side of the right page. It seems like this could be fixed by simply adding a blank page at the beginning, since it looks like the page edges were meant to be in the center. 2. The new art is great, but the original art has not been rescanned at high resolution and doesn't look good. The iconic cover art has lots of jpeg noise, and lots of the interior art is pixelated or noisy or badly scaled. It might look ok on a screen, but doesn't look good at all in the book. Unfortunately these issues extend to the maps, which to be fair,... More > were much larger in the original game, but in my greyscale paperback edition are printed each on a single page and are unusable, forcing me to hunt down alternatives. Still, 3 stars for the obvious work that's gone into this and its usefulness, barring the maps, which seem to be available at DwD Studios site as free downloads in a readable form.< Less
