Anomaly 2 Review: An Incredible Game With A Few Bugs To Hammer Out

Android Police
20 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Humanity came out on top in the previous Anomaly games, but apparently that was just the beginning – a test invasion, if you will. The alien towers have returned with a vengeance in Anomaly 2 and the world is a little worse for wear. In fact, we kind of lost the war. This is the backdrop for Anomaly 2, which employs the same reverse tower defense gameplay that made the original games so much fun.

Anomaly 2

Destructoid

  • Summary: Don’t let the screenshots fool you: This isn’t the game you think it is. The first Anomaly was an unexpected sleeper hit that found a successful formula on flipping tower defense on its head by putting the player in the role of the invader. It’s not entirely dissimilar to the tower defense genre since Anomaly still revolves around choosing the right units in preparation of foe types to come.

  • Conclusion: Anomaly 2 is more of the same, but there’s still nothing out there really quite like this franchise. 11 Bit Studios has added a greater focus on intense moment-to-moment strategy that adds on the original concept without straying too far from what made it’s predecessor excellent. While there are a few frustrations that keep Anomaly 2 from being truly fantastic, the game’s additions to it’s unique tower offense gameplay makes this a worthwhile sequel.

Macworld
25 June 2013
  • Summary: Anomaly 2 is an enjoyable tower-attack game. The multiplayer mode available on the Mac and PC versions provides enough of a challenge to make it worth buying.

Review: Anomaly 2 excels at taking the fight to Earth's invaders

GameZone
20 June 2013
  • Excerpt: In 2011 the original Anomaly: Warzone Earth became notorious for literally flipping the tower defense genre on its head. 11 bit studios took the tried and tested formula, but the developer made the player the attacker instead of the defender, dubbing the concept “tower offense.” The result was a more action-heavy experience that was well-received and worth playing.

Anomaly 2 Review (PC)

Softpedia
12 June 2013
  • Excerpt: Since then, 11 Bit Studios has worked on a full-fledged sequel that not only introduces fresh towers, units, and a new story, but also a multiplayer mode that puts one player on the offense and another on the defense. Does Anomaly 2 have the winning strategy or should it choose a different route? Let's find out.
  • Pros: +Same great tower offense mechanic, +Lots of new units and enemy towers, +Varied single-player missions

Anomaly 2 Review

Game Over Online
31 May 2013
  • Excerpt: The Good : Jazzier graphics engine. Units have new morphing ability. Now with multiplayer! The Bad : Short single player campaign. The Ugly : Multiplayer tutorial really insufficient. No multiplayer AI to practice against. Few people playing it. I heard a lot of different terms used to describe last year’s (or maybe it was the year before) game Anomaly: Warzone Earth, but the one that resonated with me was tower offense.

Anomaly 2 (PC) Review

Brainlazy
22 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Anomaly 2 does exactly what a sequel should do. It takes the core elements that made the first game so much fun and built upon them. It is easily quadruple the game that its predecessor was, and certainly worth your time.

Anomaly 2 Review

Unigamesity
19 May 2013
  • Excerpt: Upon launching the first mission of Anomaly 2, there’s an immediate sense of familiarity. From the gung ho voices of the soldiers in my squad, to the angular shape of alien towers, Anomaly 2 appears to be following in the footsteps of its genre defying predecessor. And indeed, at their cores, the two games are near identical.
