Pit People offers a ton of game to chew on, and while it might not be the deepest tactical RPG, it manages to translate The Behemoth’s distinctive style while providing an entertaining, often engaging strategic experience. It might not reach the insane heights of BattleBlock Theater’s take on the 2D platformer, but Pit People almost does something even more impressive, by taking an often opaque genre and turning it into an enjoyable romp.

There's so much to love about Pit People, it's hard to nail its single best quality. The simple-to-pick-up strategy gameplay is fantastic, as are the options to make it tougher through the Insane Difficulty toggle or through enabling Permadeath. There's the off-the-wall humor, filled with one-liners, anachronisms, and even the gibberish voices that sound like the Canadians from South Park invaded. There's the mind-blowing amount of recruitable allies and the room for experimentation. And there's the co-op aspect of the game, which leaves room for a friend.

When all is said and done, it’s the potential for laughter that proves to be Pit People’s standout achievement. The tactical gameplay is interesting and entertaining, but the comedy is the star of the show here. I enjoyed my time with The Behemoth’s new, funky world, as well as the cast of lovable characters who inhabit it, and will fondly remember many of its gags for a long time to come.

Pit People es otro excelente título de un estudio independiente que es garantía de calidad. El sistema de combate es el punto más polémico, y quizás no guste a los jugones de la estrategia más exigente; si consideras que un SRPG se define únicamente por este apartado, hay mejores alternativas.

Pit People ya mostraba buenas maneras en su versión Game Preview y, finalmente, se ha confirmado. Estamos ante un notable videojuego de combates por turnos, divertidísimo, con un gran sentido del humor y con una vida útil más que aceptable. Además, es disfrutable tanto para novatos del género como para los más curtidos e independientemente de si vas a jugar en solitario o en compañía de amigos. Se adapta a cualquier situación y es enormemente adictivo de cualquiera manera.

Il quarto centro per The Behemoth ha l'aspetto di un colorato gioco strategico che richiede dedizione e offre una sfida sorprendentemente elevata. Tra campagna, modalità cooperativa e battaglie online ne avrete per parecchie ore e molto probabilmente ve le goderete tutte. Peccato per un aspetto grafico a volte un po' confusionario e per alcuni bilanciamenti non proprio ottimali. Un gioco consigliatissimo per tutti i patiti di turni ed esagoni che non disdegnano qualche risata tra una spadata e l'altra.
