TGG REVIEW
7.5 TGG SCORE

Summary
While there are interesting aspects of Dark War, including the various dice size allocation for attributes and special "kicker" traits, the game is better suited as a tactical skirmish game than an RPG. Those who like an OSR vibe of very mechanics light may be intrigued by the system but those who look for more modern trappings will be disappointed. Overall, not a bad little game but it could use quite a bit of fleshing out.
