Review: Sanctum (PC)

 

This first-person tower defense title is a fun, frenzied experience that presents a novel take on a tired genre.

Excellent tower defense/FPS gameplay; arcade style friendly to both lengthy play sessions and short bursts; gorgeous presentation

Occasionally inconsistent difficulty; lack of narrative "rewards" to spur progress

First person tower defense games are a rare breed, and?certainly?not a proven one. Ever since the lowly RTS genre birthed the tower defense genre, pretty much every developer out there tried to make a quick buck off the concept, and as a result, left...

If you enjoy tower defense games, download the trial and give Sanctum a shot immediately - just don't expect the full package to keep you going for a while.

Tower defense games are finally starting to break out of their mold. We're now seeing interesting takes on the genre, where you control the attackers instead of the defenders, or even go one-on-one with a live opponent. But what could be the most...

When I look at Sanctum, I see an interesting art style and some fun action, but for the $15 price tag, there's a lot of untapped potential as well. It's not just in the lack of levels or overall content, but also in the types of enemies, the two-plane...

Innovates on the TD genre ; Pacing is perfect ; In-game encyclopedia is great

Graphics aren't terribly impressive ; Wonky controller support

Sanctum isn't a truly great game - it needs more content and a few more customisation options to earn that recognition in our eyes. Still, even as it is at the moment, it comes pretty close and provides a brilliant, if short-term, gaming fix.

What's here is nice to look at, enjoyable, and often challenging. And when you take in the mess of limp corpses clogging your passageways, or snipe that last soaring menace just before it reaches its destination, you appreciate what Sanctum brings to...

Sanctum isn't for everyone, but for a dedicated pair of FPS/strategy-loving people in the same room, it's a damn fine choice for for a fun weekend of innovative tower defense.

Sanctum is a neat concept and its modest price warrants a look. While the combat in the game leaves much to be desired, the new perspective on the tower defense genre is a welcome and refreshing change of pace.
