The UI is an over complicated mess, making movement / combat cumbersome, even inventory is convoluted . I wanted to like this game but had a tough time even following along with the tutorial.

Been playing it. I can say sometimes the AI takes longer than expected to end their turn, but the majority of bugs and unnamed item issues seem to be squashed. Game isn't for everyone, but it's been fun for me.

Tactic system is one of the best so far in fantasy tactic genre. The rest is OK, but the gameplay is so sloooooow it took me 50 hours to bet it on nightmare. Everything in this game take so ling time to do, even the loading screen!

Youdefintiely have to know about the IP from before to enjoy it to the fullest. It is not a strategy game themed in a med fan genre, it is a Neheulbeuk story with a little bit of strategy gaming around. The humour and particularly the team as set here is key to the whole story. If you are after pure turn-based strategy, better get xcom 2 or something similar. If you want to enjoy this one, you'd better run it in French to really get the bulk of the jokes. The translators did well, but it is waaaaaay better in French.

I played the limited time demo they had released and never finished it because of that 'enemy never takes his turn' bug. I left the computer running for a couple hours hoping it might choke through, but no luck. The demo had to be played all at once and I didn't feel like starting over again. It's a shame they didn't hammer that one out. I will definitely go on a wait and see mode now.

It would be amusing if the "dumb blonde" was voiced by a beefy guy while the orc was voiced by a woman, etc, etc mixing up the voices like a real D&D campaign. Given the game is already going for laughs it would just be a fun meta-layer.

Update The English language version is too serious. I understand that a lot of effort has been made to have the English dialogues and texts just as good as the French, however, it is different. The French version is a comedy, a satire, the English version is a bit bland with too many F* and S* words. Expletive words and expressions which are not in the French version. The French version can be played by a teenager (although a few of the jokes will not be relevant at that age) and it would be just as funny as it is to me, the characters have a lot of soul. It took me a lot of deliberation to choose between the Paladin, The Priestess and The Ministrel. In the end I told myself that I will play again with the other 2 characters, but the first time it has to be The Ministrel, his heart open like a book, his speech impairment and terribly funny songs. I couldn't go further without the guitarist swing. And I'm not disappointed until now :) Qui etes-vous, Monsieur? :) I still love The Elfe the most, she has a big and naive heart. Et comment elle s'ennuieeeeeeeee :) Oh, I also tried the French language and the written English (it is possible to set the speech to be in French and the texts in English). Again, the original French texts are way-way better. About the voice and characters: oh no, they are just perfect as they are, in most of the cases.

@Kilarith Duskleaf I started playing the PC version yesterday. As language choices: English, French and German. Unfortunately I do not speak German so I will not comment on that. The difference between the English and French is significant. While the French version has voice modifications presets, from my point of view it is worlds ahead better than the English version. I played a few hours in French and only some minutes in English (and I will try to play 1-2 hours in English). The French characters kept me laughing continuously. From Coucou! to the ministrel artistic endeavours, from "Oooh, les jolis dessins! C'est quoi?" (the elf, of course) to many others ("Fils de taburet!"). "Oooh, les jolis dessins! C'est quoi?" ("Oh, such beautiful drawings! What do they represent/what is drawn/what it is?"). You open the map, you get a reply from any character :) The few minutes in English seemed too serious and too many Fs. I will try a reasonable amount of time (2-3 hours at least) before having a definitive preference, but for now I'm literally charmed by the French version and all the crazy stuff going on.

Not doing research on what? I guess if research makes a game seem better, it'll find its players that way? "This game needs 20 hours of hitting your head with a frying pan to properly enjoy" so I guess sell it in the frying pan isle of the stores :D

@Zenn Exile That's a funny comment, you're the one that acted mad first. On the other hand MariaVosa, research SHOULD ALWAYS be done when reviewing a game, and a game being made for fans of the IP only is not a bad thing in itself, so I don't get your comment either.

If you have to do research before playing a game then maybe the game is not for anyone but the fans. And this is a 3 minute review. It should focus on gameplay, not the history of the IP

Except for the fact that XCOM have been quite vocal about how they massively skew odds in your favor at higher values compared to what is displayed. This is mainly a perception bias from the player's side: we are incapable of properly intuiting this type of probably, and our brain will tend to mistakenly perceive a 90% chance as closer to 99%.

Well, I must say, if there was a thing I never expected an American website to cover, it's the Donjon de Naheulbeuk. That IP has a long history - it started as a series of French audio comedy sketch that were aping the style of French-Canadian comedian François Pérusse and applying it to a DnD parody. It started back in the early-to-mid noughties. It's thus bizarre, but refreshing, to hear the thoughts of someone who doesn't know jacksquat about it

My all voice repertoire is based on the original Naheulbeuk... I love how the international audience receives the fact that they "constantly drop f bombs" when we as French see Americans as saying f bombs 5 times in each sentence XD ! I learned English by watching movies... and when I first moved to New York people where shocked by how much I was saying the f word xD ! I didn't understand why !

For anyone interested, a lot of the odd mix of humor and weird 4th-wall-breaking elements come straight from the game's origins as a French comedic audio drama created by a band of musician/comedians that has since been adapted to comics, books, and now a game!

@J3n50 I don't think it's ever been translated. It was a geeky audio parody started in 2001. While not exactly underground, it never became popular mainstream. There are a few puns, but the comics shouldn't be too hard to translate. The audio is the best way to experience this delightfully stupid world, but with the cartoonish voices and fast pace, it might hard for a foreigner.

Naheulbeuk was originally a kind of parody. Think Critical Role, but where nothing is taken seriously. It became such a hit that it begat a whole range of merchandising.
