  • Excerpt: 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.

And for the most part, it works. But is Sanctum's daring fusion of tower defense and first person shooter enough to make it tower over its competition?
