If you think WoD needs to run a bit more like D&D this is your book. While the combat options are decent, they are a bit clunky so expect to spend a fair bit of time, characters points and effort in combat if you want to include this module. WoD:Combat is well written dropping the RP fluff and getting right down to combat details to give you most you can get out of an RPG book but it mostly feels unnecessary for WoD so I'm not sure you will get your money's worth out of it as I can't see using these combat rules with very many stories.

Exalted or D&D are much better suited to more battle heavy games with volumes of combat oriented material written for them. While WoD:Combat does add a bit of spice with new combat abilities and more detailed mechanics it still pales in comparison to games built around combat. I think for most people added extra combat rules to the World of Darkness will feel unnecessary as that isn't really what WoD is all about it. I'd wait for this one to go on sale if you really want the extra combat options with the exception if you are planning on playing Demon Hunter X which I feel will benefit most from WoD:Combat.

At first glance the initiative system it uses looks very confusing and clunky, but as soon as you use it regularly it just clicks in your head. With all the new moves my combats have realy started to sing, and my players have started to describe there moves in detaikl now. Really cinematic.

I love this book, granted its rules for hack and slash but it gives detailed discriptions for stuff which makes your otherwise boring combat sessions alot of flaver, it has rules for shapeshifting in combat and dragon ball Z type moves, its freakin great if you ask me!

Of EXTREMELY limited utility. If all you ever want your players to do is kick butt and take names, buy this book. Otherwise it's a novelty at best.

Adapted, by and large, from the systems for the (now disavowed) Street Fighter RPG White Wolf put out in the early- to mid-ninties.
