Here's a selection of reviews of the jamb-packed $30/£20 box set to date:

Paul at Geek Native: http://www.geeknative.com/53330/legends-begin-here-a-review-of-lone-wolf-adventure-game/

The Lone Wolf Adventure Game strikes a nice balance between simplicity and complexity. As a starter set, the pre-generated characters and introductory adventure let you play within minutes. Once you’re done, you have all the rules you need to create characters of your own or advanced the ones in the box… and a whole world to explore. The simplicity of the Initiate rules makes it accessible to children or curious adults alike.

Over at our Google+ community Jimbo Hawkins had this to say:

I backed the Kickstarter, so I'm reading through my copy now.

Firstly, if you're a fan of the original game books, there's plenty of familiar territory for you.  The setting is as rich and interesting as I remember, with just the right amount of detail to get you started.

Secondly, the game mechanic from the books has been lifted, polished and improved for a multi-player game.  Cubicle 7 have included an introductory adventure you can jump right into with the provided pre-generated characters which will teach you the game system step-by-step....

...Cubicle 7 have included all of the core rules you'll need to play the game and create your own adventures set in Magnamund.

Thirdly, the box and it's content have excellent production values.  The books and materials are gorgeous, and the artwork really evokes the Lone Wolf setting.

Finally, I think this is an ideal entry-level RPG for anyone wanting to get into the hobby, or for anyone introducing beginners to role-playing, especially children.  The Initiate/Master rules are a great idea to provide different levels of complexity for beginners and veterans alike.

Highly recommended.

The Lone Wolf Adventure Game takes the Lone Wolf game books as the inspiration for its system, so if you’ve played any of them there are many things that will be instantly familiar to you – Combat Skill, Endurance, combat ratios, the combat results table, your Kai disciplines and so on.

But the game’s system has been newly designed for our game, adding in extra complexity and options to cover the sorts of situations that only crop up in an adventure game! In today’s post, we take a more detailed look at the rules of the game.
