Über dieses Spiel

Grotesque Tactics* kombiniert Besonderheiten und Klichés von Western- und Asian- Konsolen RPGs wie Fire Emblem oder Final Fantasy Tactics und bietet eine stark süchtigmachende und unterhaltsame Abwechslung zu den derzeitigen, ernsteren Rollenspielen. Das Spiel ist auf die Faszination des Strategie-RPG Genres konzentriert, aber enthält auch eine witzige Geschichte mit einer Vielzahl amüsierender Dialoge, die auf viele der erfolgreichsten RPGs wie Oblivion, Final Fantasy unnd der Herr der Ringe anspielen.

Um das Königreich vor dem erbarmungslosen Kult der "Dark Church" zu beschützen, welcher alle Helden und Ritter ermorden ließ, ist es Ihre Aufgabe Soldaten mit zweifelhaften Absichten anzuheuern und hilflose Mägde zu retten, die dann ihnen dann als Groupies in den Kampf folgen werden. Bis zu 10 Helden können in den taktischen Kämpfen eingesetzt werden, um sich der Dark Church mit ihren mysteriösen Fähigkeiten entgegenzustellen.

Features

  • Rundenbasierte Taktikkämpfe mit bisher in einem RPG ungesehen witzigen Animationen
  • Markante Charaktere wie der arrogente Heilige Avatar, der blutdurstige Vampir Solitaire, der süße aber hitzige Engel Angelina und viele mehr
  • Prächtige Dorflandschaften und düstere Verliese
  • Spärlich gekleidete Mägde, die aus den Klauen erbarmungsloser Monster gerettet werden müssen
  • Kolossale, hoch detaillierte und sehr übellaunige Endbosse
  • Klassische Rollenspielelemente: Quests, Schätze, Handel, Leveln und das Ausstatten einzigartiger Helden
  • Unterhaltsame Multiple Choice Dialoge und Gesprächspuzzles im Stil klassischer Abenteuerspiele wie Monkey Island oder Maniac Mansion

*Beim Schach ist eine Grotesque ein Problem im Endspiel, welches eine ungewöhnliche, seltsame Ausgangslage bietet, beispielsweise wenn Weiß mit einer sehr dezidierten Armee gegen die riesige Armee von Schwarz kämpfen muss. Grotesquen sind meistens sehr humorvoll.

There aren't many grid-style movement, tactical, turn-based RPGslike this. There is a good handful, but by no means are there many compared to other similar genres. This is a pretty great game if you are a fan of the genre. If you aren't that big of a fan of the genre, then this may not be a good game for you. The thing is: this game is technically a parody RPG. However, ironically, it winds up being a pretty good game in the genre it is trying to parody-- even though it is pretty simple and minimalistic.

So the game doesn't have very much depth in the departments of tactics or RPG elements-- which many other games of the genre do have. Each character is a set "class" and only learns 2 "spells", you don't choose them. There are only really one set of weapons/armor for each character that you acquire through the game. The story is linear and there are no choices. But even without all that depth the game is still charming in its own right. Everyone has a set class with set abilities, so it takes a lot of the tactical aspects of party formation out of the game which many other games of the genre have, but you still have to plan your actions on the battle-grid accordingly, so there are some tactical decisions to be made-- just mostly only on the battlefield.

You need to go into the game understanding it's supposed to be simple and whimsical and then you can enjoy it for what it is.

The characters are purposefully cliché and it works out in a charming way. And even though the tactical elements are minimalistic, it fits perfectly with the atmosphere of the game. The story, and the way the events occur are also purposefully cliché in a charming way. The graphics and sounds are fitting with the game, nothing jaw dropping but nothing jarring. Importantly, the game seems to work just fine-- I think I only had one crash in 12 hours. The game is just fun, simply-- especially to a fan of the genre itching for a novel experience...

So even though this game is just a "parody," and therefor is simplistic compared to others in the genre-- it is a welcome addition to a small list of games to a true fan of an amazing genre.

Grotesque Tactics, developed by an indie German studio by the name of Silent Dreams in a joint venture with Headup Games, is a turn-based strategy game in the same vein as Final Fantasy Tactics, Tactics Ogre, or any of the other hundreds of games with "Tactics" tacked on to the title. But let me clear the air here: unlike the aforementioned games, Grotesque Tactics is bad. Not "bad" as in Big Rigs: Over The Road Racing bad, but more like "all I wanted for Christmas was a Nintendo 3DS but all I got was a Nokia N-Gage" type of bad. You know, the type of disappointment you get when you are hyped up on all the good things, but are let down on every level.

The plot is nothing to write home about. There are no plot twists, no overly-emotional scenes, nothing. Just you and your party against an evil empire. You play Drake, a drop-out from the Glory Military Academy. By a stroke of luck, the very fact that you were the only dropout in the history of the academy has saved you from death in battle at the hands of the Dark Church (the aforementioned evil empire). Being mopey and emo (and yes, the game makes use of "emo" way too much), Drake finds the courage to fight back against the Dark Church with the help of the Semidivine Holy Avatar, the stereotypical "I'm better than you, and women love me" beefcake of the game. Together, you and Holy scour the world rescuing maidens, recruiting party members, and completing side-quests. Like I said before, it's nothing to write home about.

On that note, I should mention the writing. I'm guessing Silent Dreams hired a 16-year old high-school dropout to translate the game for them, because even though the game has had an extensive grammar overhaul for the English version, the writing would make even a first-year college student cringe in terror. Grammar and spelling mistakes abound, and any hint of humor the game wanted to convey has been lost due to the horrid translation. For example, Candy, one of the three maidens you rescue and recruit, constantly says "Hihihihihi" instead of "Hehehehehe" or *giggles*. The only thing that would make that worse is if Navi from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time was put in the game and constantly said "HEY! LISTEN!" every ten seconds. But even then I would have fond flashbacks to my time playing an infinitely-better game. Grotesque Tactics just makes me want to punch babies.

And then there's the humor. I'd like it to be known that humor is NOT universal; it is purely subjective. Unfortunately, the game is billed as a parody of other great games. If anything, Grotesque Tactics is a parody of computer game designing. There is a difference between parodying a game and simply referencing a game, and Grotesque Tactics references the hell out of other games. The humor is extremely in-your-face, much like playing an interactive version of the Meet The Spartans movie. While it's not as ham-fisted as UnEpic, at least UnEpic is a good game.

The entire cast is a tragedy upon game design. The main character is an emo who isn't really emo all that much except in certain combat situations, the supporting character is the stereotypical knight-in-shining-armor with sunglasses, the rogue is a goblin who joins you because you killed his buddies, and various other travesties. Oh, and if any reader of this review is black and you want to see how German game developers portray black people, play this game. The only way the token black dude could get more stereotypical is if he had fried chicken in one hand and purple drank in the other. Yes, this is what Silent Dreams considers a parody. Sad, is it not?

From the moment you boot up the game, you can already tell you're in for a world of hurt. The pre-game loading screen features Holy Avatar and the three maidens, but the whole thing looks like it was made in Poser. Then the game starts and the Poser-like art is replaced by anime character portraits. Holy is pretty much the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ of the group, while the three maidens and other female characters are in various states of undress. Let's not forget that while you are rescuing said maidens to recruit them, they are screaming about getting their clothes torn off. The character interaction, combined with the almost-ecchi artwork makes me believe that this game is the lead designer's attempt at a VERY bad self-insert fanfiction rather than a clever satire of RPGs.

And finally we come to the meat and potatos of the game: the gameplay. As I've said before, it's a clone of the various Tactics games you see or have seen on the market. Turned-based strategy on a battlefield with positioning. Nothing new, so let's move into what makes Grotesque Tactics stand out from the crowd (other than the sad attempt at German humor).

The really big thing about the game is the Obsession system. The game flat-out tells you in the tutorial that this is a limit break (I'm guessing Silent Dreams' thought process was "LOLOLOLOL! I MADE A FINAL FANTASY 7 REFERENCE! LAUGH, PEONS! LOLOLOLOL!"). Each character has their own way of increasing their Obsession, from hitting stuff (Drake) to getting hit (EVERY SINGLE PARTY MEMBER). Each Obsession does their own unique thing, but more often than not it involves the obsessed party member attacking another party member. West goes berserk, attacking anything in range (friendly or not), the maidens and the angel simply attack a party member, the goblin rogue blinds everyone in a radius (again, no thoughts to friendly fire) and warps to Holy, and Drake buffs nearby party members' attack rating but at the cost of halving his attack rating a few turns afterwards. Drake is obviously the most benefitial of the party, but that's not saying much considering everyone else is geared toward screwing you over.

Inside combat, you control all characters in order based on their agility. Outside of combat, however, you can only control Drake while the others automatically follow him. This works out fine, except for one major game-breaking bug that was the straw that broke the camel's back for me: Afflictions aren't removed once combat is over. In the battle leading up to getting the mage party member, West went berserk due to his Obsession. I ended combat right next to a treasure chest in a narrow 1x1 area in the forest with West blocking the only exit in or out. Since he was technically still berserk, he refused to move, and I cant move through party members. Needless to say, I was stuck and had to reload the entire damn mission. Have I told you yet how much I hate this game?

And lastly, I come to the deal breaker: the camera. Or, rather, the automatic camera panning. Any time there is dialogue or a character is moving, the camera will pan to that character. This isn't such a big deal if the damn thing would actually CENTER on said character. Instead, it trails behind a moving character. Trying to manually compensate for this means your camera goes out of whack and ends up 50 feet in some random direction. Again, this wouldn't be such a big deal if we could turn automatic camera panning off, or if movement outside of combat wasn't in real time. Alas, no on both accounts. This will, more often than not, lead to clicking the wrong square or giving you a fit of nauseua.

Funny Indie game. If you liked The Bard's Tale give this one a try. If you're only into serious games this is not for you. It's pretty casual and the technical basis is not the best but I could play through withou any severe bugs.

if u like tactical rpgs this is a great game. cant really find the right words to express how great this game is other then u need to play it to understand.

there is only so many weapons and armour in the game but it is enough to satisfy as u arent playing for hordes of items. and yes there is a few bugs but they dont break the game and only 1 is a crashbug towards end of the game by an optinal golem which if beat quick enough and move away from the spot it wont crash u and u will know the point when u reach it.

but overall u got ur parodys ur semidivine hero and the maidens alongside drake ur gothic style commander and well ur perverted goblin? u got the lovely yet easy to piss off fallen angel and a beserker ish warrior. oh and might i add there is vampires? its a great game and sidenote try to beat it without using ur potions as weapons and armour early on is alot better use of coins and potions are only really needed if ur not that great at tactical rpgs.
overall a very enjoyable tactical parody rpg which i would play again <3 10 of 10

I've played this game through twice. I liked the humor, it's definitely a casual game. People that are looking for a more complex game are going to find it lacking all sorts of depth. The camera shifts that follow the party are annoying, but not detrimental. I thought that the gameplay system that some people complain about was also a parody in and of itself. Concerning the emo phases, you just have to plan ahead, knowing at some point, looking at their meters, that they are going to enter into their various emo phases. I found it added another dimension to the tactics, having to plan for that. I picked this game with the second on sale, I thought it was well worth the sale price.

It lacks complexity and depth, and it lacks content. There's really no character development and areas are used several times for different scenarios. That being the case, it's still quite entertaining and very much worth the small price I paid for it. I'm definitely looking forward to more from these develpoers. I recommend it to anyone who can just enjoy a fun little game without expecting too much.

Nettes Spiel, dem es gelingt ein klassiches RPG-Spiel zu sein und sich gleichzeitig großartig über die Welt der RPG-Spiele lustig zu machen. Rein als RPG oder Taktik-Spiel bertrachtet ist es nichts Besonderes.
Der erste Teil übertrifft den zweiten Teil, weil die die Satire super ist und es weniger Fehler gibt.

Netters Spiel für zwischendurch ... macht Spass auch wenn mit steigender Anzahl der Partymitglieder etwas die Taktik in den Hintergrund gerät. Lustige Dialoge, mit Anspielungen auf Klassische RGG's und Filme und Serien.
Wenn es gerade im Sale ist, absolut zu empfehlen.

Anfangs eher skeptisch...
Doch als alter RPG Hase stellt sich in einem beinah das Flair vergangener Zeiten ein. Das rundenbasierte taktische Vorgehen, gerät aber schnell in Vergessenheit wenn die Party groß genug ist. Der total abstruse Humor schafft es durchaus zu punkten.

Im großen und ganzen: Ein Spiel das sich selber nicht ganz so ernst nimmt und für lustige Spielstunden reicht.
