Conclusion: In my last review, “Defenders of Ardania,” I commented on how giving players the ability to attack as well as defend in the Tower Defence genre was an addition that brought the game to life, and allowed the player some input in their success beyond placing defences and hoping for some breaks.
Excerpt: If any single genre could be considered synonymous with the rise of the downloadable game market, it’d have to be tower-defense. Rather than dive headfirst into the already crowded market and hope to find their niche, 11 Bit Studios’ title, Anomaly Warzone Earth , turns the genre on its ear. It’s the year 2018 and a comet has entered the Earth’s atmosphere, splitting into two and striking the cities of Baghdad and Tokyo.
Conclusion: Anomaly: Warzone Earth is exciting, clever and ultimately addictive. There's a level of innovation here that we rarely see in AAA gaming, and we'd like to see more of it please. If you have any interest in tower defence whatsoever, this is an essential purchase.
Summary: Anomaly: Warzone Earth, at its core, is an arcade approach to the real-time-strategy genre. You have the heat of an RTS battle raging around you, as you find yourself in the middle it all, supporting your squad, issuing orders, changing tactics when the situation forces you to do so.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Anomaly warzone earth by 11 bit studios is a PC game that reverses the tables in a tower defense game. Instead of setting up the towers, you will be controlling a wave of units fighting against the invading alien towers.
Conclusion: Anomaly: Warzone Earth's fresh perspective on the traditional tower defense setup makes for an exciting new entry in the genre, exploring familiar gameplay from an entirely different angle makes the action in Anomaly: Warzone Earth even more exciting. It's surprising how much of a difference a few simple tweaks can make toward revitalizing a genre that has long grown stale for some players.
Pros: Creative twist on traditional tower defense, Beautifully detailed environments, Great mix of strategy and action, Simple mouse controls.
