Grotesque Tactics 2: Dungeons & Donuts is the successor to the celebrated RPG-parody Grotesque Tactics. Experience an ironic story-driven RPG with humorous dialogue-puzzles in the style of Monkey Island as well as a strategic combat system, where your party members are controlled simultaneously.
Our story starts as the citizens of the Kingdom of Glory celebrate their victory over the Dark Church. While in the catacombs of their former enemies, their revelry is disturbed by a sudden all-encompassing fog. The citizens wrapped by the fog disappear screaming into nothing. Those that remain alive after the strange attack, barricade themselves in the depths of the catacombs. As time passes, food becomes scarce and the people of the Kingdom of Glory begin to realize that they might all meet their demise. The ‘heroic’ Knights of Glory, shady mercenaries and the arrogant high elves band together into guilds in order to survive and escape the dank catacombs. Unfortunately, the guilds are far too concerned with their distaste for each other and are oblivious to the awakening of dark forces in the dungeons below…

The first Grotesque Tactics was an amusing combination of Tactics and RPG with gaming satire. If you enjoyed the first, I think you will really like this one as well; it carries with it pretty much everything you may have liked and in fact improves upon the graphics, adds fully voiced dialogue (which I thought was surprisingly well done), familiar as well as new characters, new and more abilities and accessories, and lots of new places to explore and monsters to battle. Really the only thing I thought was a downgrade was that the camera feels zoomed in closer, but it is still manageable and you can rotate it freely at least. Definitely recommend!
I'm in the minority, but I actually like the Grotesque games and the spinoff Holy Avatar. The game plays like the old Shining Force games. You get a sometimes humorous story, followed by a turn based battle where you move your characters one at a time on a grid and attack enemies when you are in range. There's a lot of sidequests to complete and this game took me about 16 hours to complete. I enjoyed it more for the battle system than the story. But I did like some of the characters, especially Holy Avatar. Not surprising that he got a spinoff game. This game had more to do than the original, hence the added playtime. You could join guilds, and take on a lot more quests than were available in the original. The original Grotesque took about 12 hours to finish with side quests for comparison. The Holy Avatar spinoff was brief at 5 hours and was seriously lacking, but it wasn't meant to be a full game. If you like old school turn based games in the vein of Shining Force, buy Grotesque. Otherwise, it's tough to recommend.
