Anomaly: Warzone Earth
18 October 2013
Excerpt: The Live Arcade has a good amount of tower defense games, but Anomaly: Warzone Earth more than earns a place at the top of the genre. An alien menace has been unleashed on our blue planet, but the armed forces plan to turn back the invaders and restore peace. The plan is to assault the aliens, but since the invaders have dug in and set up entrenched defenses, the march to victory will not be a simple one.
Excerpt: I think it is fair to say that the Need For Speed franchise has been through a tough time trying to re-identify itself after losing the ideals of what the original titles brought to the table. I still remember the heady years of the early 90′s, sitting down and popping the original Need For Speed title into my 3DO for a monster session of racing and police evasion over 3 courses.
Excerpt: 11 Bit Studios sent us over the code to check out the Xbox Live Arcade version of this interesting game. Anomaly: Warzone Earth is a bit of a twist on tower defense gaming. Rather than being the one defending against incoming forces, the player is the one defending their column of military vehicles going in to take down the defenses.
Summary: Anomaly: Warzone Earth offers an interesting twist on the tower offense genre by giving players an on-the-ground presence. As the commander, players will be able to walk alongside their convoy as it makes its way through a gauntlet of alien towers, calling down smoke, decoys, repair fields, and air strikes to ensure their safety. It’s this extra hands-on touch that really sets Anomaly apart as it adds a dimension of action that other tower offense titles lack.
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.
Summary: If you’ve played " Anomaly: Warzone Earth " before, then this is not the game for you. It looks and sounds a bit nicer, but you’re paying a lot more money for that, whilst the new content is not brilliantly compelling, nor does it last forever. If you’ve not played before, then Warzone is an interesting take on the genre that’s well worth picking up.
Excerpt: Near the beginning of the year, I did what any responsible gamer should do and supported the Humble Bundle game collection in recognition of all those late nights and caffeine binges endured by independent game developers. Little did I know then that I’d be treated to such a wealth of creative and novel games. One such game was Anomaly: Warzone Earth which has now made its way into the annals of Xbox Live as a downloadable Arcade game.
Excerpt: Anomaly: Warzone Earth is the unique PC hit that brought its own set of rules to the tower defence genre with some additional twists that you wouldn’t expect in this game. Now it's being released on Xbox Live Arcade but will a controller be able to give you the same experience as the PC version? Or will it be StarCraft 64 all over again?
