Griftlands provides drama, laughs, and fun strategy that's a great twist on the genre, adding more character depth and lore than the usual deck-builder

Griftlands is an atypical deckbuilding roguelite with an addictive gameplay formula and a top notch narrative. I can see myself playing this game for a very long time while trying to master everyone of its aspects.

Griftlands has so much to offer to a player. The nuanced deck-building system, heartfelt characters and a deep lore makes it a worthy way to sink dozens of hours.

"Double agent and licence to kill."

Griftlands uses flexible systems to create a remarkable roguelike deck-building RPG. Its best aspect, without a doubt, is the great influence of decisions: allying with someone or annihilating characters have important consequences in the events. In addition, it's exciting to be able to resolve dilemmas in a variety of ways—talk, intimidation, and bribery are valid options. The two types of encounters (negotiation and direct combat) are solid and with good possibilities, even if they are not as varied as other representatives of the genre. Finally, the elaborate narrative aspect makes the matches engaging, but there are some pacing problems. Griftlands is inventive and another great representative of the genre.

Among roguelike deck builders, Griftlands is an ambitious one. But it actually pulls off those ambitions. The gameplay is unique, combining a two-deck system with a relationship system. Visuals, sound, and controls get one thumbs-up, while the writing gets two thumbs. Even run-of-the-mill conversations have a spark of wit, or at least a dash of snark. More importantly, it’s fun to play (though there’s lots of terminology to digest at first) and enough reason to replay on a higher difficulty if you love a good challenge. At $19.99, this is seriously a steal.
