Play the first Grotesque Tactics onlyFinka_Karfein | June 11, 2012 | See all Finka_Karfein's reviews »
After a great Grotesque Tactics: Evil Heroes I was more than happy to play the sequel. Well, at least for first tens of minutes. Then it turned out that Grotesque Tactics II: Dungeons & Donuts is just an average game. Let me start with advantages. The humour is still great and there are many moments in which you will LOL, ROTFL and others. It is helped with a great dubbing. Some lines are expressed in such a way that even worse dialogues become funny. And the battle system works fine apart from the fact that... There are many disadvantages. You cannot double the speed of animations as in GT1. The music is fine but too few and it gets repetitive very quickly. Graphics are ugly. Where are the funny portraits from GT1? Why include here a nasty 3D models which are an eyesore? The interface is also badly designed - it will take a while until you find your money count. And the worse - this game is a bugfest. Many quests are impossible to complete, often your characters will get stuck or spawn too far to be part of the battle. And occasionally you may visit desktop. All in all, the game's worth lies mainly in the funny moments. It was the only thing that kept me playing. I recommend buying it only during sales and only for fans of parodies who completed all the other cRPGs in that matter.
