Unfortunately, Fighting Fantasy Legends Is An Exercise In Frustration
Fighting Fantasy Legends
Sidequest was provided with a copy of Fighting Fantasy Legends for MacOS in exchange for a fair and honest review.
I decided to play Fighting Fantasy Legends because I misread the title and thought it was a Final Fantasy card game on Steam. It’s not either of those things. Fighting Fantasy Legends is marketed as a card game but is actually a point-and-click tabletop RPG. (Apparently, it is actually based on a tabletop RPG, which would have been helpful to know.) And after the first few hours, where you’re struggling to figure out just how to play this game, it’s a lot of fun. Unfortunately, it was disappointing in the long run.
Sidequest’s former managing editor Naseem Jamnia used to do sciencey things, but they now slam their keyboard and call it art. Their debut novella, THE BRUISING OF QILWA, introduced their queernorm, Persian-inspired secondary world; their middle grade horror debut SLEEPAWAY comes out in 2025.
