I'm going to have to hammer this game.
I really wanted to like it, enough to play 25 hours into the campaign. Everything beyond the first half-hour was just more of the same. All campaign stages and game modes play out identically, you dig and come under attack only when you deliberately dig into marked areas. The town management & combat & AI behavior are all *extremely* basic.
This is a 3D dwarf fortress with 95% of the game content and mechanics missing.
While entertaining and helpful, it lacks the serious complexity of Dwarf Fortress - as well as the endless gameplay. Pricey DLC and simplicity of gameplay are a huge turnoff for me, but that didn't stop me from buying it on steam and playing it for a few hours. I don't regret the purchase, and I like what is being attempted. I just wish it would gain a few more layers and incorporate more DLC into the game itself. It may well do so with time.
