We Are The Dwarves

Today, I am really happy to present you an amazing and really fun game called We Are The Dwarves. The game is created and published by Whale Rock Games and it is as amazing as you expect to be. But is it worth picking it up now or on sale? Is it a truly good title? Let me start by saying a few things for the title.

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. The story of the game is that the Dwarven stars are slowly dying-- putting the race at the edge of extinction. Deliverance is poised upon three Dwarven astronauts who are sent on an expedition to find a new star in the depths of the Endless Stone. Take control of Forcer, Smashfist, and Shadow as they explore the unknown territories of the stone universe while meeting new civilizations and ancient monsters from the deep layers of space.

The very first thing of the game that I loved is the graphics. They are sharp, unique and they create an amazing atmosphere for even the most demanding players. The environments of the title are really detailed and well-designed and with the sounds/soundtrack there is a movie atmosphere. Moreover, I love the fact that there are 3 distinct characters in the game (Forcer, Smashfist and Shadow) each one with a skill tree of its one and unique abilities to choose from.

You can also pause the game and issue commands to your Dwarves and plan your next moves so you can clear the level more efficiently. Another positive aspect are the stealth mechanics and how you can kill your enemies without even noticing you. As far as the negative aspects are concerned, there aren’t many aspects to mention. One of the negatives is that the combat is poor, without depth and heavily based on stealth. Moreover, sometimes the AI is really unfair and they notice you really quickly compares to other time.

To sum up, the game is really unique, fun and full of surprises in every corner. I liked it a lot despite the negative aspects and I totally recommend it to everyone. It is not perfect but it is fun for sure.

Verdict: 8/10
