Having read through Zounds!, I'm impressed. I've been gaming for thirty-someodd years, and have played or GMed a lot of systems. I found SFX to be nicely minimalist in its mechanics, with a heavy reliance on the concept of plausibility for the setting. The game puts more of the weight on the players than most systems, creating a more cooperative environment between GM and players, pushing the game more toward group storytelling and away from improvisational acting with a stage manager. I look forward to having the time to read through the other three of the SFX games, Kapow, Zap, and Argh.

I found that the character creation rules could easily accommodate a number of different styles of play. Don't let the low count of character templates fool you, two "Heroes" can be radically different.

I created Wise One with the magic of Geomancy on the fly, the character works with local energies to shape the environment to help him. The mix of high flavor customization and fairly robust rule set lead me to compare it favorably to a pastry: I found the outer shell to be warm (inviting) and lightly crunchy, but on the inside it was soft (flexible) and rich and it easily supports many possible flavors. 

This is a fun, fast, and easy to learn game, I would suggest it to anyone.
