Another offering from Lowell Francis at RPGGeek, his review of Armitage Files is simply entitled ‘wow’ and you can read the whole thing here.
The Armitage Files is a unique game book. Pelgrane’s once again demonstrated that they’re willing to go in new and novel directions. At the same time we once again get their high standards of production, layout and illustration. I know I’ve spent a lot of attention on the Gumshoe line, but they keep making interesting things… Quite honestly I wish I’d never read this sourcebook. Instead I wish I’d been able to come into a campaign using this without any foreknowledge. That would have been the coolest thing… This product blew my mind. I think every GM with an interest in alternate campaign approaches ought to read it.
