    You are the most unlucky guy in the world: An Emo! In your Company there are crazy characters like the
    extreme Holy "Duke Nukem Ultima Parody" Avatar, jealous virgins, and a perverted goblin thief!

    This game is not made for the hardcore tactic Pro gamer (recommended: try the hard difficult), but for all RPG loving fans, Ex-WoW gamers (like me
    ;)) and yes... also for women! It's very easy to learn and after you played a few hours it will become more complex, because you get more and more party members each with unique skills.

    Game length: around 15 hours. That's ok for this price and I hope there will be a sequel.

    Computer problems, camera difficulties, and an imperfect item slot were not enough to distract from a fun and wryly engaging story. The combat was rather repetitive, but not so much that it was terrible. All in all, you should play for the story and the wit, not for the combat or the graphics.

    One of the most funny indie games I ever played on Steam. Simple Party RPG with nice ideas. A bit like Vandal Hearts, Kings Bounty or Fire Emblem but with focus of humor and story. Glad to see they work on Grotesque Tactics 2 with cool graphics.

    Much underrated!
    At first glance the game seems not as polished as other games, but I have to admit that it is very addictive.
    There are very few games which I have finished, but this one has a great mix of humour and playability which kept me playing to the end.
    If you do not expect a realtime 1st person RPG you will have a good time for about 10-20 hours.

    This game is for casual humor. If you are a hardcore gamer who wants a challenge, look elsewhere.

    If you want to spend some time leisurely being humored by the story / dialogue, it is good for the $2 on steam sales now.

    There is the seed of an interesting, enjoyable, funny, and simple SRPG in Grotesque Tactics: Evil Heroes, but it's buried in fertilizer.
  2. All in all, Grotesque Tactics is a shoddy low-budget game.
  3. A fresh and funny indie game. A real little gem, though not without flaws, but with lots of virtues missing from most blockbuster titles: charm, comedy and imagination- for a low price.
