Star Wars Miniatures: Rebel Storm Set Review
Get the 411 on the Star Wars: Rebel Storm collectible miniatures strategy game from Wizards of the Coast!
Star Wars: Rebel Storm Uses The Force!The game comes in a Starter Pack with all the rules, a bunch of Star Wars figures - Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Stormtroopers, Wookies and more. Each miniature figure has a rating for their attack, defence and other powers - plus for how many points they cost. You and a friend or two can build teams of the figures worth as many points as you want, then battle with the maps included in the starter pack. Booster Packs have more figs you can collect, plus you can trade with your friends to build a collection of your fave bounty hunters, Star Wars creatures or heroes!
Star Wars: Rebel Storm - The Light SideThe greatest thing about the Star Wars miniatures game is that you can command some of the coolest sci-fi characters in movie history. There's no Darth Maul or young Obi-Wan, but they'll show up in a sequel, er, expansion. The rules are also easy to learn so you can get playing in minutes, especially if you've played the D&D Miniatures game. Collectors are in luck 'cuz there are only 60 different figs in the first set, so it's easy to collect the whole thing.
Star Wars: Rebel Storm - The Dark SideThe biggest problem is that, right out of the box, the Imperials get Darth "kick-your-butt" Vader but the Rebels are stuck with Luke "whiny-farm-boy" Skywalker. Plus, Stormtroopers are tougher than Rebel Troopers, so the Rebels are in for a whuppin' until they snag some Booster Packs and get some stronger troops.
Star Wars: Rebel Storm - Good or Bad?If you're a Star Wars fan, grab this game. Even if it's just so you can decorate your room with the cool figs. It's also a rock solid game that anyone can collect and play. Plus, it'll just get better as more expansions are released!
