No Recommendation / Blank

At the moment, it's hard to recommend actually buying it. It's not hard, however, to imagine that the few months when it should have remained Early Access will be able to make the difference - to file off the rough edges, add the missing features, and create a dungeon experience that can appeal to both the hardcore fans out for a challenge and more casual Keepers looking for the darkly dripping horrors of a place to realise their evil whims.

Not so much a sequel to Dungeon Keeper 2 as an unofficial remake, and while a little magic has been lost along the way this is still a charmingly unique strategy game.

So yes, an awful lot of what makes Dungeon Keeper Dungeon Keeper is in here, and I respect the hell out of that, but there's a certain degree of elegance missing due to the micro-intensive method it's chosen to move the dial towards.

I can only remain confident that, from this positive base, Overworld is only going to get better. It just would have been wonderful to have it begin that way, because we don't rate potential here.
