“Despite a lack of customisation and short story, Minecraft Dungeons is a delightful spin-off that is well rounded (or well cubed) with its fun core gameplay and brilliantly designed levels. The outstanding graphics and beautiful soundtrack are also worthy additions to an already wonderful experience.” – Grunt 4500. This addition is a few weeks late to the roundup, but worth checking out regardless, especially with the newly released DLC!
