Review: Defenders of Ardania

Everyday Gamers
13 April 2012
  • Excerpt: It’s often said that the key to a good defense is a strong offense. Paradox Interactive takes that expression to heart in their latest Tower-Defense game, Defenders of Ardania (DoA). DoA is set in the Majesty world, but unlike its predecessors Majesty and Majesty 2 which were Real Time Strategy games, DoA is a Tower-Defense style game…with a twist.

Defenders of Ardania Review

23 March 2012
  • Summary: Ultimately Defenders of Ardania may represent a point a curiosity for die-hard fans of its parent genres, yet ultimately fails to capitalise on the successes of either. It’s simply frustrating to know that there’s very little that can be done to win these wars. There’s so little scope within the mechanics for inspired tactics or original thought. Victory seems less like a matter of skill or tactical acumen and more a test of patience.
  • Pros: Curious genre mixing
  • Cons: Tug-of-war battles, Few tactical options

Defenders of Ardania

22 March 2012
  • Conclusion: If only someone had reminded Paradox Interactive of the simple old saying when they were developing Defenders of Ardania, a tower defence game with a twist. You certainly can't blame the company to try and innovate within the genre. Tower defence games have exploded in popularity in recent years; what was mainly a flash-based online genre has now become a main-stay across all platforms.
  • Pros: + Innovative Ideas + Decent Graphics
  • Cons: - Uninspiring Story - Broken gameplay - Frustrating missions - Harsh learning curve

Defenders of Ardania

19 April 2012
  • Conclusion: Alguien debería haber recordado a Paradox Interactive el dicho cuando estaban desarrollando Defenders of Ardania , un juego de 'tower defense' con un giro. En realidad, no puedes culpar a la compañía por intentar innovar en el género. Los juegos de defender la torre han explotado en popularidad en los últimos años: lo que era básicamente un género online-flash se ha convertido en una tendencia en todas las plataformas.
  • Pros: Ideas innovadoras, gráficos decentes.
  • Cons: La historia no sorprende, sistema de juego estropeado, misiones frustrantes, curva de aprendizaje muy dura.
