Creature of Havoc has a well-earned reputation as one of the best and toughest gamebooks. It's longer than most Fighting Fantasy books; there's a small degree of filler between set pieces, with many dead ends and red herrings. Meticulous note-taking is a must - as is a fair dose of luck. The detailed backstory is integrated beautifully into the main story. You play a monster trying to master its instincts and gain understanding of its nature and control of its fate. This is more than just a gimmick; it sets the scene for a masterful adventure and memorable climax.

Creature of Havoc is a single-player roleplaying gamebook written by British game designer Steve Jackson (not to be confused with the US game designer of the same name).

Creature of Havoc is a single-player roleplaying gamebook written by British game designer Steve Jackson (not to be confused with the US game designer of the same name), illustrated by Alan Langford and originally published in 1986 by Puffin Books.

Newcomers to Fighting Fantasy will find a more forgiving intro elsewhere - I recommend City of Thieves, Citadel of Chaos or Steve Jackson's Sorcery! series.

Fighting Fantasy is a series of single-player fantasy roleplay gamebooks created by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingstone. The first volume in the series was published by Puffin in 1982, with the rights to the franchise eventually being purchased by Wizard Books in 2002.

Steve Jackson gives us Creature of Havoc where YOU play as the powerful yet instinct driven primal being. This has to be one of my favourite Fighting Fantasy books which I played as a teenager and in turn for its high difficulty, where you must navigate twists and turns yet many outcomes are set in loops of doom: Choices that lead to a grisly demise or an uncertain or different fate.

I read/played through this adventure probably about 15 years ago and still remember it vividly. It is a well written, challenging and original representative of its genre. A great deal of the originality comes from the players inability to control the bestial savagery of the "creature of havoc" the story is based around.

This should be a must read/play for anyone who likes RPG, Tolkien, or anything else really. How fun is it to eat Hobbits in a Fighting Fantasy book?

HOWEVER, there is one problem. Depending on your version you probably have a typo on paragraph #213. To fix this typo just assume the first sentence is "You find yourself at a dead end." (instead of "You reach a dead end." This really matters! Pencil it in when you buy the book!) This will save you a lot of headaches down the line!

Creature of Havoc has been on the top of many fighting fantasy lists, and is well deserving of this recognition. However, this is also one of the most difficult fighting fantasy books and beginners to the series may be frustrated. Nonetheless, this book has a very intricate storyline which is set up by many pages of background material. Even with the background material, you start off as a creature unknowing of the world, and begin a quest for identity. There are a diverse number of environments that you will traverse. This updated book does correct a glaring error in the previous edition which made the book extremely difficult to solve. Also, the production value of this book is top notch, from the wonderful cover to the quality of the paper. A must for any fighting fantasy or gamebook fan.

A great deal of the originality comes from the players inability to control the bestial savagery of the "creature of havoc" the story is based around. This deepens the players immersion and helps overcome some of the limitations inherent in "pick-a-path" books.
