I want to like this book better. I really do. It's got a good, intuitive game system. It lets you play just about anything. It doesn't take itself too seriously. It's *clever*. These are all very, very good things, and you should seriously consider buying this game because of them.

On the other hand, while the game is very *clever*, it's not especially *funny*. This is a very, very bad thing, because the game so desperately wants to--and deserves to be--a comedy. But comedy is damned hard to do, especially when you're laying out a system of dry, probabilistic mechanics and writing up a campaign setting that the characters are supposed to take seriously, even if--especially if--the *players* aren't. For whatever reason, this book just can't take itself seriously *enough* to be a good comedy. It should be a simple matter to *make* a Demon Hunters game into a rollicking fun time--that's just the DM'ing part, and that's all in timing and delivery--but it still feels like the authors are passing the buck on to someone else.
