Top Critic Average
Developer: Whale Rock Games
Genres: Adventure, RPG, Strategy
We Are The Dwarves is an action-based tactical adventure with active pause (extreme slowdown of time) placing you in control of three Dwarven astronauts. Forcer is capable of ranged destruction, and timely set-up exectution. Smashfist, a brute at heart, gets up close and personal with rage worth avoiding. Shadow stays just where you'd expect him to, launching deadly successive assassinations and precision archery from afar. As a trio, combine each dwarfs attack styles into orchestrated destruction against your foe.
We Are The Dwarves Gameplay
We are the Dwarves had all chances for success thanks to an interesting idea, but a unique game world was buried under a pile of numerous problems. A constant struggle with the controls on Xbox One and strange game design decisions did not give a slightest chance of tactical mechanics to prove themself. Jerky picture and low framerate do not add positive impressions and quickly become tiring. We can only rely on a big update that will fix all the technical issues, or try the PC version. Until then, the console version can be safely ignored.

We Are The Dwarves is a brutally difficult tactical action game with some RPG elements thrown in for good measure. Learning the best way to utilize each of the dwarves' talents is the key to advancing in the game. The isometric perspective provides clear sightlines of the action, but I found controlling multiple dwarves much more difficult than controlling a single dwarf. With more characters on screen, things start to become more hectic, but in a way, the game relishes in the ensuing chaos.
