“At last, in Grimoire: Heralds of the Winged Exemplar we have a sequel that has hewed to the traditions of Crusaders of the Dark Savant, and to a good degree Bane of the Cosmic Forge, in both presentation and seizing that intangible quality, the spirit of the game.”
"Superb" – RPG Codex

“One of the things I realized while playing this game is how important it is for the author to just get out of the way and let you explore and do what you want. It's been so long since we have been allowed to have fun and decide for ourselves how we want the game to unfold. Grimoire really knows how to let the player create their own narrative, without having some message forced on them while they wander on rails.”
"Great" – Matt Chat (Youtube Channel)

“Pure Incline!. The best 1st person, party based RPG in at least 15 years, without a doubt. If you loved Wizardry 6 & 7 and are looking for more, this is it. Lots of story, puzzles, stats, complex combat, huge gameworld, recruitable npcs, lock picking. Wide variety of spells, items, monsters. Some crafting/alchemy, with a lot more coming in a future patch. NPC factions and multiple solutions to most goals. There haven't been any blobbers with this level of detail in a very long time and there likely won't be for an even longer time to come. Easily worth the money for anyone who enjoys this kind of game.”
10/10 – Metacritic (Baff)
