The famous "Angry Video Game Nerd" has started to make review videos of some old classic board games which includes Battle Masters and Hero Quest. The Battle Master video can be found here:

The Battle Master video is much better than hero quest because they really point out some of the issues with the game.

It's only better than the Heroquest one in that they show a lot more of the game this time before they (yet again) give up on it for being, ahem, too complicated. laugh Considering he lives, eats, and breathes videogames, I know he's got to be very capable at figuring out manuals and strategy guides so I really don't know why boardgame rulebooks give him such problems, but Heroquest - and especially Battle Masters - are some of the easiest games in the hobby. Oh well.

I know that he exaggerated a bit the fact that the rules were complicated, they are not that complicated. I don't remember having a lot of page cross reference in the rule book.

The heroquest video does not show much of the game compared to Battle Master.

I love James and all of his reviews... I'm just disappointed that his Battle Masters review is one of his weakest contributions. I'm a huge fan of the game... and he didn't really review anything. Yeah, yeah... it's a huge board and takes a while to set up. Oh well.

At least he didn't have Battle Masters try to forcibly felate him (like poor Mr. Bucket).

I don't think his goal is to make serious reviews, it just to make fun of the game. I also don't think he is a real expert about board games.

This wanst a review
These guys should not publish videos
An utter and complete waste of time
Or maybe just a sense of humour I don't get

In fact, he is a professional movie maker, and he is going to release soon a community financed movie about the "Angry Video Game Nerd". So in the world of video games, he is very popular.

This means he is not going to stop making movies anytime soon.
