Don't believe the five-star reviews. The people who made this had no respect for pulp stories or for roleplaying games. It's designed for a series of single-session games that are barely connected, if connected at all, with the only thing that does so being the same characters appearing each time. I genuinely don't think don't think the people behind this have actually played their own game, because otherwise they would know the types of players who enjoy games like that would never get into the roleplaying aspects of these games. Characters are another big fail for this game. All of them are meant to be the same age, have some connection to The Great War, and all are meant to be sociable, well-off people...even though they suggest wild man and criminal archetypes. Ignoring the obvious lack of thinking things through here, the forced lack of variety is made even worse by the fact that adventures in this game are meant to heavily skewed towards problems requiring the characters to use their fists, so that's even more potential characters rendered pointless. Oh, and advancing characters is discouraged, apparently ignoring how many pulp stories were serials where characters did change. FATE was not the system to pick for this idea, guys. Oh, and when characters do advance, it's supposed to be done with everyone advancing at the same time, regardless of how much they've actually been involved, because some thought doing otherwise is "impolite." Yeah, these people have definitely never played their own game. To top it all off, there's a half-assed metaplot that might've been interesting, except several core ideas behind it are not explained at all, so it's ultimately useless.
