Trenched - Xbox 360 review at Thunderbolt Games


There's something intriguing about a developer like Double Fine fully committing to the downloadable space. Part of it is that their concepts are too fresh – too unique for retail-level marketing. Whatever the format, the Tim Schaefer-led studio has...

Trenched Review


A perfectly blended tower defense concoction.

marriage of shooter and tower defense mechanics, blistering pace, characteristic Double Fine humor

You never have enough time to pick up all the scrap, not quite as charming as some of the developer's other titles

An alternate history game combines old fashioned warfare with newfangled technology.

It’s all good, accessible fun, which makes up for the absence of Double Fine’s trademark jokiness. There’s silliness here and there: One mission involves protecting a depot filled with coconuts, so the soldiers can enjoy them for dinner. But humor is...

You have to love Double Fine, the studio helmed by the legendary Tim Schafer. To boost morale during some studio/publisher issues, he broke the team up into four groups and had all of them create game prototypes within two weeks. Trenched is one of...

Great design ; Gameplay combines genres and plays to the strengths and strategies of both

Genre bending isn't for everyone ; No local multiplayer, I'm surprised at how often this is a problem

Double Fine is proving to be the Elvis Costello of video games, mixing genres and looking like they may have invented something new. It's sad that the sheer willingness to be creative is such a rarity, and though this isn't going to revolutionize...

Between the real-time strategy of Brutal Legend and the classic turn-based role-playing mechanics of Costume Quest, Double Fine has made a name for themselves by turning classic genres on their head. Instead of trying to reinvent the wheel, these games...

Don't like tower defense games? Not impressed by the slow-moving nature of mech games? Me neither, yet I couldn't get enough of Double Fine's newest game. Trenched isn't perfect (it can be a tad frustrating when playing solo), but that shouldn't stop...

Review: Trenched (XBLA)


A new downloadable title from Double Fine that throws in enough weaponry, hardware, and multiplayer shenanigans to make even desktop tower defense fun again.

Addictive, loot-rewarding gameplay; strategic,easy-to-jump-into multiplayer; fun customization options for yourmech

Occassionly wonky enemy-indicator and hard-to-findfoes; no strategic view of the entire map

Trenched Hands-On Preview


One man uses his genius to protect, the other to destroy -- it's the old trope of heroic struggle from any age, place, or reality. Double Fine has adapted the classic battle for their latest project, a downloadable title called Trenched, where players...
