The first edition of GODLIKE was the first One Roll Enjine game I ever purchaced. When I heard about a second edition of course I jumped on it!

A sleek and simple gaming engine running one of the most original superhero backgrounds imaginable; this is a real gritty super's game. No spandex here your character is just another grunt on the front lines of history's greatest conflict. A grunt who can lift a tank, or fly, or make people's head explode just by looking at them!

But look out that grunt on the other side can do those things too.

The background and infilration of amazing superpowers into the historic conflict of World War 2 is genius. Other super games are forced to hand waive the whys of superpowers not affecting the larger pace of the conflict, but in GODLIKE the sheer numbers of powered individuals can do that for you. Or you could let your characters have a huger impact on the war! It's all up to you.

The game engine is one of my favorites. A single roll tells you if you succeded at a task, how well, how fast... everything you need to know. It is an excelent and beautiful mechanic and as is seen by the wied array of other ORE games can be used to simulate a wide variety of genres.

In short I highly recomend this game, and any ORE products.
