About

Sanctum 2 is a first-person shooter game, the second installment in Sanctum series by Coffee Stain Studios.
The story takes place on planet Loek-III colonized by people. The colonies are built around the Cores, large spheres of energy that make Loek atmosphere suitable for humans. You take a role of one of four Core Guardians team members. There are 4 characters in the game with its unique abilities and characteristics and several unlockable weapons for every one of them.
The gameplay may be essentially described as a mix of FPS and tower defense. Every level is necessarily a tower-defense-style map with the main building, the Core, which player has to protect from waves of enemies, coming from the access shafts. Every round consists of two phases: building phase, when the player can build towers and walls that help hold back waves of enemies, and defending phase when the player has to kill enemies in order not to let them destroy the Core.

Sanctum 2 reviews and comments

Translated by

In Search of new Co-op titles, we came across Sanctum 2, and bought it favorably in the Sale. The Game works like this, you have to protect a Core from heaps of white Aliens. Once the Core is destroyed, one has lost so that this is not done, you can build Kasten/Towers on the Paths. By building the Box, which can be occupied by a Rocket Tower, for example, the enemy Troops are weakened or destroyed. The Rest can be given to them with your own Rifle in the ego perspective. The Towers must be set strategically wisely, since each Type of alien has different Strengths or Weaknesses, but by putting the Towers you can also extend the Paths of the Aliens, which brings an Advantage. The Towers can be upgraded and improved, I thought the Game is cool and fun, even if it has quite a lot of Edges and Corners, especially the strategic Thinking has always given me new Ideas, as each Card was tactically different.

The Game is good (for Friends of the Genre), but for me little entertaining. The Game is a tower defense game (TDS) combined with a First-person shooter. Played (throughout) in an Ego Perspective. The Game probably unfolds its most Fun in multiplayer mode, but you can also play alone. It seems to Me that it has a fairly typical Structure for a TDS. You choose your Hero and the Weapons and Towers he can build. Before any Wave of Enemies, each Player can build a few Towers and Obstacles that guide and fight the Opponents as skillfully as possible. During the Attack, each Hero fights with two Weapons, which are usually used alternately. The Opponents are, as is customary with TDS, somewhat unintelligent stubborn, but some attack in a rather sneaky Way, for Example by long jumps. There are a lot of Levels that you can unlock over Time and gradually build up them to Become more complex. Likewise, Opponents are boosting. In Return, you levelt your Heroes and unlock more And more objects to Fight your Opponents. I appreciate for Friends of the TDS the Game can be a Joy, especially in multiplayer mode. Everyone can find out for themselves how long this lasts. The Genre is generally not so much Fun, even this time. So I just alluded to it and can only give a rough Impression. The Graphics are pretty good in modern Design. The Heroes and the Opponents are also attractively designed. The Sound is quite OK. The Control is good and possible with both keyboard kit and Controller. There are many Achievements, for which you have to kill some Monsters. Rating: 5/10 (for me), otherwise like more. Although certainly a good Representative of his Genre, I can't do much personally with TDS this time either.
