Why Star Wars Legion is my Favorite Game: The Bad

Welcome back for part two of my Legion review (or welcome for the first time if you decided to read the negative stuff first)! Like I said in the first article, Legion is not a perfect a game, as I don't think such a thing exists, but it's probably one of the closest things for me that there will ever be. However, the points in this article are the things that I think hold Legion back from being my perfect gaming.

The negative points we're going to be discussing are:
  1.  Quality and Availability
  2.  Accessibility of Rules
  3.  Lack of Official List Builder
  4.  Upgrade Card Hunting
  5.  Unique Characters Galore
  6.  Suppression Tokens, Suppression, and Panic

Why Star Wars Legion is my Favorite Game: The Good

You might be thinking, "wow, that's an awfully bold claim to come from PoR, he must be riding some kind of hype train". While a fair assessment, it's not true in this case as, without a doubt, Star Wars Legion is one of the best gaming experiences I've had in all 20 something years of playing games. It feels the same, but yet fresh. It doesn't complicate the formula to the point of being unrecognizable or unfamiliar, but it does change enough to be a welcome difference and exactly what I was looking for.

Am I saying that it's a perfect experience? No, hardly any game will ever be perfect, and I'll get into that, but I do think it's one of the best gaming experiences you can get at the moment, if you don't mind doing the whole hobby thing or if you at least enjoy Star Wars to some extent.
