Review: Defense Grid The Awakening (XBLA)

 

It seems like Tower Defense games are all the rage these days, and it is hard to separate one game from the next, unless you get a solid hook for your game.  Defense Grid: The Awakening looks to change things up a bit by giving you a vast arsenal to...

I came into Defense Grid: The Awakening rather new to the whole Tower Defense genre, and found it to be highly addictive and enjoyable.  If you have played a lot of titles in this genre, you might decide to skip it, but that would be a shame, as there...

Defense Grid: The Awakening

 

Defense Grid: The Awakening has a simple story that is often used when a game designer wants a generic enemy in their game and having Nazis don't make any sense. That's right, Defense Grid features an alien invasion. On a far away planet you wake up...

With enough content to make it worth the price, but not enough unique content to make it stand out from other free titles you can find online, Defense Grid: The Awakening is a slightly above average tower defense video game.

Defense Grid: The Awakening

 

"Defense Grid: The Awakening" is an award-winning PC Tower Defense game with plenty of content to last, but how does the Xbox 360 version fare?

Best graphics out of the entire tower defense genre ; Perfect atmosphere ; Very good voice acting ; Even if only very basic, the story is as good as it gets for the genre ; Extra level challenges extend the replay quite a bit

The game has to end eventually

Tower defense fans, this is as good as it gets. Buy this game without question. Anyone who doesn't know what a tower defense game is, this is the best chance you'll ever have to find out!

Defense Grid: The Awakening review

 

Tower Defense games have seen an explosion in popularity ever since the first Flash game was released. They're now practically everywhere, from consoles to the Iphone, however, only one game based on the Tower Defense concept can be found on the Xbox...

Defense Grid: The Awakening

 

Tower defense is a genre that has taken off in recent years. Titles like Savage Moon, Comet Crash, and Plants Vs. Zombies all manage to stand on their own as full titles instead of add-ons for RTS titles. Defense Grid: The Awakening is the newest...

Defense Grid: The Awakening

 

This exceptionally balanced tower defense game will keep you coming back to fight off the alien invasion for just one more wave.

Great sense of balance between your powerful towers and the massive alien onslaught ; Ability to jump back to previous checkpoints minimizes frustration of trial and error ; Story, music, and voice acting give the action weight ; Visuals make your...

Trial and error can still be frustrating ; No multiplayer modes

A nicely put together game in an increasingly crowded genre.

Defense Grid: The Awakening - Review

 

For all the variety on the XBLA, the tower defense genre is sadly under-represented. The lack of titles is a bit strange, given how prevalent the games have become on the expanding iPhone App Store. Too often, you find a great game on the iPhone and...

A few levels in, maps begin to expand in size, with spaces for your towers through the path of the enemies. You can force their path with tower placement, adding a bit of additional strategy to the game as you attempt to make their path as long as...

Defense Grid: The Awakening

 

The best Tower Defense game ever?

Real layers of strategy ; Full of charm ; The best looking TD game

Pretty basic when it comes down to it ; Not really original ; Won't appeal to aggressive players

Most importantly, Defense Grid has charm – a snooty semi-senile English-voiced AI directs you through proceedings and tells the tale of an ancient civilisation wiped out by the hordes. As for the Defense Grid itself, the little turrets and deployment...

Take back the tower.

The bottom line is that Defense Grid: The Awakening is one heck of a buy for $10. For anyone who has yet to venture into the Tower Defense genre of gaming, it provides a uniquely appealing style of RTS/puzzle gameplay that is sure to addict most...
