Dungeons 3 is a title that toes the line between nostalgia and gameplay almost perfectly, although at times its humor becomes self-indulgent to the point of exasperation. Non-existent multiplayer population and bugs aside, Dungeons 3's campaign has enough going for it that it's worth a look.
Overall, I still emphasize the fact that for those who expect a Battlefield game, that is exactly what you are given. At its core, it’s a competent shooter from a company that knows what it is doing, but it really should have been so much more. Perhaps shifting eras will be enough for most, but it feels like EA Dice went through the motions here. From the ho-hum campaign to the by-the-numbers multiplayer, it feels like a manufactured product rather than a game that developers poured their hearts and souls into, and that’s a real shame.
Total War: Warhammer is a well-thought out iteration of the Total War franchise, which means that those that are still on the fence on buying the title should expect a release that is everything one may expect from a polished Total War title… for better or worse.
Stellaris builds a foundation that will hopefully yield something wonderful within the next few years of patches and expansions. For now, this is a good game that I recommend for both the newcomer and the hardened veteran that probably already has this game.
Grim Dawn is a game that is more than the sum of its parts. Its graphics, story, and music are not particularly impressive, but its combat is so good that it elevates it over almost all of its contemporaries. This is a title that is worth it's full price.
