  • Excerpt: The Good: Interesting mix of tower defense elements The Bad: That ultimately don’t mesh together all that well. The Ugly: Endless multiplayer games.

  • Excerpt: There is certainly no shortage of tower defense games these days, particularly on platforms such as XBLA or iOS. In fact, Defenders of Ardania was born on the latter, and though the genre staples of tower defense -- such as resource management and multiple defense units -- are present, it strives to...
  • Pros: The colorful art style, Online multiplayer, Adding offense to tower defense
  • Cons: Frequent sensory overload, A steep learning curve, Feels more at home on iOS

Review: Defenders of Ardania (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Diehard GameFAN
14 June 2012
  • Summary: : You can see where Defenders of Ardania seems like a good idea when you play it; mixing real time strategy and tower defense elements seems like a fantastic concept, and could be, but the end result doesn’t quite make that idea match up to the reality.

  • Conclusion: The campaign seemed to have a drag to it despite speed boost, but was interesting. With all the skirmishes and multiplayer available you have much play ahead of you. Also give the green nature race a try, it’s umm rather interesting.

  • Excerpt: Something unholy stirs in Ardania. Suddenly soldiers, angry animals, and shambling undead are lining up to bash your castles to bits. Time to drop some gold on auto-firing towers. Unlike most tower-defense games of this sort, Defenders of Ardania features two-way streets.
  • Pros: + Intriguing mix of tower defense, real-time-strategy offense, and light RPG elements.
  • Cons: - Painstakingly whittling down enemy defenses requires more patience than planning., - Cheesy bosses; three online factions that differ in appearance and little else., ? Why are tower health bars so tiny?

  • Conclusion: Defenders of Ardania is competently made but doesn't really excel in any particular area. I might have rated it higher if it wasn't for the 1200 Microsoft Points asking price (that's £10.28 or €14.40 in real money), but as it stands this feels a little steep for a tower defence game regardless of...

  • Excerpt: It’s good to be the king. You get to sleep in under comfy silk sheets while your vassals wake at dawn and go out to till the land. Architects build your towers. Wizards slave over mysterious, glowing artifacts. All the while, your coffers fill with gold.
