SteamWorld Dig 2 review
*Review copy provided by Image and Form Games*
Another review! That’s three this week and there’s one last one coming! Enjoy!
I came off loving SteamWorld Dig which is still my favorite indie game of all time. This sequel is bigger, better and improves in every way possible!
This game picks up after the first game where Dorothy is looking for the first game’s protagonist, Rusty. After passing the through the short and fun tutorial you’re opened to the vast and exciting world of the SteamWorld Dig franchise. It looks so so good. The graphics on the Switch look amazing.
It looks but also plays well. The controls are sharp and responsive for the sometimes precise movement of going back up through the mine. The gameplay hasn’t changed since the first game but they did add a bunch of new features. The map is way bigger than before and you have sections of exploration outside of the mine. You also have new and innovative upgrades which are a fun to use and find. They’ve expanded the world and the lore with new enemies, NPCs, and locations. It’s a sequel that really expands this universe and the Switch is the perfect platform for it!
This is a sequel done to perfection. It expands and improves in every possible way from the first game. I loved the first one but I love this one more. I’m giving it a 10
