Critic Reviews for SteamWorld Dig 2

A 3DS classic gets a follow-up that doubles down on the charm.

SteamWorld Dig 2 retains the original's addictive resource-gathering gameplay, but supplements it with a gorgeously detailed, handcrafted world. Its heady mix of exploration, combat, platforming, and puzzle solving, alongside an expansive set of abilities and mods gives it plenty of variety and a great gameplay rhythm. I wish there was more to do once the campaign ends, but that's a testament to the fact that what is here is just about pitch perfect.

The SteamWorld franchise digs deeper than ever and comes up with another charming mix of Metroidvania and Boulder Dash.

The “dig, upgrade, repeat” formula never gets old thanks to fun gameplay and a steady stream of new powers

SteamWorld Dig 2 is a brilliant evolution of the first that not only expands upon its hybrid formula, but presents it in its best light.

SteamWorld Dig 2 is a worthy addition to any library, but stands out on the Switch because it works great as a portable game and also looks amazing on a big TV. I took about 15 hours to track down every collectible, but it'll probably take most people around ten for their first playthrough. It's perfectly playable with the Joy-Con, but I used a Pro Controller for most of the game to take advantage of the cross pad. If you haven't gotten your fill of Metroid gameplay after playing Samus Returns, you'll definitely enjoy delving into SteamWorld Dig 2.

Action, exploration, platforming, beautiful visuals... SteamWorld Dig 2 improves everything from the original game, adding some metroidvania elements, and making it one of the best indies for the Nintendo Switch.

Google Stadia Library Surpasses 30 Games

It's been a slow start for Stadia, and though these four new games merely bring its library above 30 total, at least they're great games.
