I have played almost half of the games included in the bundle: Terraria, PixelJunk Eden, Orcs Must Die! 2, and Age of Empires.
Terraria is an action-adventure sandbox game that’s kind of like a 2D version of Minecraft. If you don’t have it yet, it’s worth beating the average for this game alone.
PixelJunk Eden is a minimalistic platformer puzzle game by the same company that made PixelJunk Monsters. It is colorful, beautiful, and relaxing — not one of my favorite games, but definitely one that I enjoyed playing.
Orcs Must Die! 2 is a super fun combination of trap-based tower defense and third-person shooter. Highly recommended.
The Age of Empires Legacy Bundle includes both Age of Empires II and Age of Empires III, which are real-time strategy games. AoE2 is set in the Middle Ages and is one of my favorite games of all time. AoE3 takes place during Europe’s colonization of the Americas. It’s been almost a decade since I’ve played AoE3 and I think I liked it all right, but that it was a let down after AoE2.
I’m most looking forward to trying out Crusader Kings II, a medieval strategy game with a sense of humor that was published by the same company as Magicka. I’ve also heard great things about Legend of Grimrock, a dungeon-crawling RPG.
