Excerpt: The tower defense genre has evolved a lot in recent years, but with the release of Dungeon Defenders, it takes a quantum leap forward. While some games have combined third-person action with tower defense, Dungeon Defenders polishes it to a high shine and then takes the genre to a new level. The strategic element of tower defense is in place, as barricades and towers are crucial, not just an activity to do between battles.
Excerpt: Dungeon Defenders starts off exceptionally well. These heroes have vanquished the evil old ones, and entrapped them into crystals. They go off on a quest, and leave their children behind. Who accidentally knock one off, and have to stop the waves of evil hordes. Why stop them? Because they want to free all the others. Then the game lets you decide if you want to go through the tutorial or not. I suggest you take the tutorial.
Conclusion: The multiplayer system is awesome and you will never get tired of playing this with diffrent settings. If you love RPG you will spend a long time gearing up your Hero and probably more then one. This works for both Tower Defence lovers and action RPG lovers. My oppinion overall is 9/10 but with the potentional of future updates and extra content like gender change it will rize to a 10/10.
Excerpt: The Tower Defence game is, in the scheme of things, a fairly recent creation. Initially made as an online flash game it was quickly copied and became very popular. This is easy to understand as there is something about setting things up and watching them go. However, sometimes you want something a bit meatier… something a bit like Dungeon Defenders.
Conclusion: Despite these criticisms, it’s hard to be too down on Dungeon Defenders; Trendy Games clearly have a strong understanding of their intended audience, and if you fit into the category of gamers that relishes cooperative-based play and obsessive levelling, there is plenty here to be recommended. Visually, its pseudo-cel-shaded aesthetics are really quite sumptuous and, although slightly generic, the character design is certainly charming.
