I recently played Vampyre again and enjoyed it just as much as I used to, but I've never had a chance to give Revolt on Antares a go. How does it stack up to its horror-themed counterpart?

Better, IMO. Vampyre, like many of the TSR mini-games, is a cool game but fairly one-dimensional. Revolt on Antares has 2 different ways to play the two-player (Antares vs. Terra and Antares/Terra vs. aliens) and a multi-player option (houses of Antares competing.)

I'd say it's probably a matter of taste or what you're in the mood for. Both games are a lot of fun, but, as Jackwraith said, Revolt on Antares offers a wider variety of playing options, and quite a bit more nuance too.

By the way, Mandrake, if you're in the market for a copy of Antares, let me know. I might be able to help you out.
