What does "deliver" mean for you? That it's as good or better than your favourits from the last decades? Yeah, that is unlikely.
For me Conquistadors already delivered I'd say. And Shadowrun - I only started But I see a fun short game that is a bit underwheming - but I also get another campaign, an Editor and Access to community created Content, all for $15 or whatever I pledged for it.
But yeah, People have to be somewhat realistic with what can be achieved with the Budget (and in most cases that also means budget = time constraints) that KS can provide to developers. Like Dajjer I do thoroughly enjoy seeing how the projets try out new ideas, revive old ones, mix and match into something new.
Sometimes I know how rune_74 must often feel on the Watch - a starry-eyed youth among grumbling old men
