Off-Site Reviews

In short, this is a gimmick game that shouldn't be a gimmick game. It's got a couple of good gimmicks which are fiendishly clever, but the real strength is in the characters.

What this game does best is unsettle you. The whole game has an extremely eerie atmosphere, and half of that is due to the strange plot (or lack of a plot, Iím not sure which.) The other half is due to some Adam Cadre writing, and the strange ignoring of player input. (Christian Baker)

In its own way, then, Shrapnel is quite a story, and that it's less interactive fiction than a forced march isn't a major drawback, in the end. (Duncan Stevens)
