Attack of the Fanboy
by Jason Eliason
Though the mechanics of Tharsis are often exciting and suspenseful, the game ultimately falls short of expectations due to irredeemably punishing dice rolls.

44 / 100
Tharsis is well made, but not well designed—an attractive, interesting board game idea, but only the first draft.
by Jeb Haught
I'm sure the punishing difficulty and numerous unfair dice rolls will turn many gamers against Tharsis, and that's perfectly understandable. However, the reward of actually beating the game truly elevates my spirit. I can only hope that the developers will continue the story with another punishing round that occurs on the red planet itself.
