Summary: I am actually rather disappointed with what is given to us. Sanctum 2 is a fun and enjoyable in short burst but the short campaign and lack of other modes makes this a hard sell. Also while the multiplayer is fun, it can get frustrating if you are paired up with someone that doesn’t have a clue what they are doing. Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be a lot of people playing Sanctum 2 online at all.
Summary: Sanctum 2 is a game of balance. It blends two separate mechanics –– the reaction of a shooter with the forethought of tower defense. As the soldier, you’re in charge of building the trenches, as well as defending them. Different tower types, weapons and character perks all serve you in your mission to defend each map’s core –– lose the core though, and you’re done. On a broad scale, Sanctum 2 finds that balance.
Excerpt: The original Sanctum quickly became one of my favorite PC titles of all time. It had a ton of charm, but most of all, it was difficult . On some maps you had to juggle scores of towers, make elaborate mazes, and blast your way to victory without a second to waste. Sanctum had a level of strategy practically unparalleled in other tower defense games, if only due to the mere fact that twitch skills and strategic thinking were required.
Summary: Against an army of alien invaders, the trusty turret has always got your back. Like its predecessor, Sanctum 2 is an enjoyable blend of first-person shooting and tower-defense-style strategy. Instead of watching passively as your towers do all the dirty work, you get to dive into the action and sow carnage alongside them. Both games execute this concept well, but Sanctum 2 has far more content than its small-scale predecessor.
Pros: Unique and balanced mix of tower defense and first-person shooting, Large arsenal and difficulty modifiers encourage replay, Tackle each challenge with up to three friends online.
Excerpt: The tower defense genre has become one of the fastest rising video game genres ever in recent years with popular titles such as Plants vs. Zombies , GemCraft and Protector leading the charge. Developer Coffee Stain Studios' Sanctum continued this rising trend with the release of a brand new type of tower defense game that combined aspects of many different genres when it released back in 2011.
Excerpt: If you’ve ever played a traditional tower-defense game and wished you could be in the trenches alongside the turrets, now’s your chance. Sanctum 2 still lets you build elaborate mazes of offensive towers to slow down and eliminate tough waves of enemy creatures, but rather than simply watch the proceedings and hope your plan pans out, you’ll take to the battlefield with a couple of firearms and up to three co-op comrades.
Pros: + Great pairing of tower defense and first-person-shooter combat., + Co-op play is a blast, although it doesn’t make things easier.
Cons: ? Will Coffee Stain produce some map packs, as they did for the first game?
Un heureux mélange de « shooter » et « tower-defense »

Summary: Focus final Pour les 15$ demandés, le jeu téléchargeable Sanctum 2 (PS3-PC-XBLA) est un jeu honnête offrant plusieurs heures de plaisir aux joueurs qui aiment ce type de jeux ou encore ceux qui voudraient essayer pour la première fois un « tower-defense ». Les contrôles sont optimisés pour tirer profit des manettes de consoles comme la PS3 et la Xbox 360 et l'aspect jeu de tir est salutaire nous propulsant à titre de participant dans l'action au lieu de regarder le...
Pros: Quatre joueurs en coopération, 16 niveaux, Seulement 15$, Facile à comprendre
Cons: Manque de profondeur, Doit être joué en coopération pour espérer le terminer, Manque de finition
Conclusion: Tower defence har aldri vært de mest actionfylte spillene på markedet, noe indieutviklerne i Coffee Stain Studio bestemte seg for å gjøre noe med i 2011 da de lanserte Sanctum . Det kombinerte klassisk tower defence med førstepersons skytespill. Kombinasjonen ble godt mottatt, og nå er selvsagt oppfølgeren her. Da gjenstår det bare å se om utviklerne har klart å bringe fram nytt og friskt innhold på bordet, eller om det bare er mer av det samme.
Pros: God blanding av sjangerne, Utfordrende, gode tilpasningsmuligheter, meget underholdende sammen med venner.
Cons: Organiseringen av flerspilleren kunne vært bedre, kan fort bli kjedelig alene.
