SteamWorld Dig 2 Review

SteamWorld Dig 2 is a sequel that does more than simply update the original. It creates a larger world structured like a Metroidvania by adding more mazelike corridors and open rooms. On the flip side, the digging segments feel more tedious this time around, especially when compared to the excellently designed challenge caverns and environmental puzzles.

Steamworld Heist

Steamworld Heist is a ton of fun, and developer Image and Form are doing a great job of trying new things following the surprise success of Steamworld Dig. Perhaps a little on the easier side, it makes up for it by being a great playing and superbly produced tactics game with a lot of character, and loads or replayability. It's going to be ported over to other systems soon, but the 3DS version is fantastic, and you owe it to yourself to pick it up for some on-the-go bot blasting.

SteamWorld Dig

Despite not really achieving anything with its barely-there story, SteamWorld Dig is an excellent surprise from an independent studio putting out a game that is more than the sum of its parts. Maybe in the future developers Image and Form might delve more into the story that makes this robot-western world tick, but for now, I'll accept the excellent gameplay and a superbly-paced upgrade tree instead.
