An interesting blend of FPS and Tower Defense. DLC is not required to play, but helps in a pinch (Violators are a must imo, helpful when placed properly, but don't think they replace AA).

Hybrid Tower Defense First Person Shooter that hits all the awesome parts of both worlds. Just like in a Tower Defense game you can upgrade your tower and you earn new towers along the way. You can always plan multiple paths for the enemies to follow. As with a FPS you have a good selection of weapons and you can upgrade them as well.

I love the fact that it allows the player to choose the amount of TD or FPS emphasis they will choose while playing. For example if you want more FPS, dump more upgrade points into your weapons. If you want for TD you obviously focus on your towers.

I will say though that focusing on your Towers will make the game easier, while focusing on your weapons adds a good bit of difficulty. I personally focus on both and Rock heavy hitting versus DPS.

This game is one that deserves more attention. It has a perfect balance between FPS and tower defense, a combination never thought of before and they nailed it! Great game with loads of replay-ability. I recommend playing with friends.

Entertaining gameplay coupled with fresh and clean art style!

This is pretty much the Tower Defense game I've always wanted. There is a tactical aspect with tower placement and maze -ing. Then there's never a dull moment as you must upgrade your weapons and towers whilst you shoot enemies with your very own guns! 4-player coop is definitely a joy.

However, the part that pulled me in the most was the art style. It's clean, sleek and fresh!
