3 out of 5 stars
The concept for this role-playing game and subsequent collection of stories is fun and unique. I really enjoyed the mash-up of spaceships and giant, attacking bugs; it made for classic sci-fi entertainment. It was easy to immerse myself in this world and understand the plot of each story, even though I’ve never played the We Hunt Bugs game. Occasionally the stories ended a bit abruptly or lacked character development, but overall I would recommend this collection to anyone who loves sci-fi, whether they’ve played the game or not.
