- Audience-Alienating Premise: While there is a definite crossover between Gamebook and Comic Book fans, the series failed due to combining them in a way that failed to appeal to either demographic. The stories were too short and simple to appeal to Fighting Fantasy and other game book fans, who were used to four hundred reference adventures whereas Dice Man had adventures with as few as fifty references, while comic book fans just wanted to read the stories and not have to mess around with dice and note keeping, as well as dealing with a story that didn't read in a linear fashion.
- Harsher in Hindsight: Ronald Reagan has a "sanity" score and you have to keep the score low to avoid suspicion that you are not the real Ronald Reagan. His diagnosis and eventual death from Alzheimer's disease robs this mechanic of some of its humour.
YMMV / Dice Man
