    Altogether, this makes Dungeons of Naheulbeuk a real mixed bag. Its slick and well-observed aesthetic is undercut by rote humour and tired cliche, and its combat has great potential smothered by layers of random chance and obfuscation, with the great swell of combatants meaning that you can sit helplessly as a cavalcade of attacks all target and take down a character before you have a chance to act. There’s definitely something here to enjoy if you’re a diehard tactics fan with a keen eye for optimum strategy and luck mitigation, but it feels like a lot of effort for little reward.

  1. If you like XCOM-ish things, The Dungeon Of Naheulbeuk should be in your library – just so long as you don’t mind a bit of hamfisted zaniness. I don’t think it’s one you’ll want to replay again and again, but it’s a substantial, well-crafted effort that’s definitely worth your time. Admittedly it’s no Garfield Kart, but it’s unreasonable to expect a developer to produce two once-in-a-generation masterpieces on the trot, after all.

    No bugs, nice nelevl design, good depth for the fight system, and of course, the legendary Naheulbeuk universe, deveopped 20 years by Pen ofNo bugs, nice nelevl design, good depth for the fight system, and of course, the legendary Naheulbeuk universe, deveopped 20 years by Pen of Chaos.
    Artistic direction is really nice, same for musics and dialogue. The story is hilarious and compelling, the jokes are good, and there are hundreds of small references to loveraft, tolkien, and other famous fantasy/fiction master piece.

    Dont let yourself get scared of by a few bad reviews from people with a toaster for a computer. The game runs fine, and better than the average release this days. The couple of "professional" critic that have review this game to give it average grades are often offended by the humour this game has. You probably know how it is in 2020, people will get offended for no reason.

    Keep in mind that this game is a great work, made by a small team of pasionate nerds and role play gamer over the course of quite a few years. It aint, perfect, but its damn refreshing. Dont hasitate two second to get it.
