Although I haven't read the original version of Haven: City of Violence. This setting in general seemed a little too over the top. Haven is as gritty as it gets. I can see some obvious influences in the work. You can tell that Frank Miller, James 'O' Barr and John Woo definately hit hard on this setting. It was not the best writing I have seen, but nonetheless, it wasn't bad. <br><br>
<b>LIKED</b>: Gritty details about EVERYTHING that goes on in Haven. The power groups, the different districts of the cities from Golden Heights to Rome Island. Very good stuff that will give GMs more than enough to run a Haven chronicle for a while. <br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Advanced classes were disappointing. I thought they could use a little more thought and effort on the writer's part. Worse than the advanced classes are the NPC descriptors. If you are even going to mention any NPC's, their stats should be in there. You want to give the GM a bit of knowledge on what the capabilites of the NPC's are instead of just implying that Dominic Carlucci has so many bodygaurds and goons beneath him, it's impossible to get to him, give stats on the man, and describe his lackeys, whether they be individual NPC's or high level thugs. No NPC stats is definitely the lazy man's way out. <br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Acceptable<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Disappointed<br>
