Excellent concept. Mediocre execution. The entire premise hinges on the question 'what happened to the alien life in the universe?' and the book sadly never answers it. in typical FATE fashion it offers several possible solutions, but unlike other FATE products, each answer is both weak and shallow. Hardcore FATE fans might find some enjoyment here, but otherwise I'd skip it as there are much deeper products in the genre even at pay-what-you-want pricing.

Ghost Planets is all about exporation and provides some great mechanics to back this up. Adventures are designed around investigating the ruins of ancient civilizations and trying to solve they mysteries they left behind. You do this by surveying the environment and looking for things the civilization left behind. Here's the cool part: many of the things left behind can be Researched and depending on your success or failure, you can make Discoveries that give you advantages or new information -- or you can have a Mishap which adds complication to the adventure. Mishaps are made more interesting because the type of mishap is related to your character's role. And, of course, this is all going on in parallel to any environmental challenges the characters may be facing. Good stuff!

Great book, nice streamlined setting, with lots of general info, allowing a lot of room for the GM to work with while still giving a solid background on which to build. The basic "templates" - based on the High Concept, gives the game an almost class-like feel, while still allowing characters to pretty much do their own thing.
