The Defenders: The Second Wave reviews and comments

Overall interest: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ the defenders: the second wave is a mix Castle defense/action game in 2D or you have to choose the right mix between building, upgrading your equipment and improving your features to get new skills usable during the waves. It is a good surprise that I advise. To seize! Graphics: ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆ good 2D neat, colorful and precise texture level. Now the whole game is located in the same place on the same map... The monsters are not very original but still cared for. Music/sound: ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆ the minimum is there and it stays neat. The same background music all along and sounds of pretty classic skills. Gameplay: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ simple and effective gameplay, right click to swing a left click skill to type. A really playful gameplay in the different strategies possible. We're having fun playing. I have not played in multi but it must be super nice! Lifespan: ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆ waves that follow and are not alike too. I only made a 50aine of waves, after the game becomes still complex. But we don't get tired of starting over and testing a new strategy.

Defenders: The Second Wave-despite the hellish Amatorskaya drawing, quite a good action, besides the local koopom. The Game has a fairly light achivki, so it can be attributed to a simple "perfect game" in the profile. 1) Plot: In a remote monastery: "We are haunted!", "Let them go." Actually the plot here for a check-it all can be read on the screen of the comic book on the game page above. 2) Graphics and sounds: The worst that is in the game. The Drawing is made at the level of free-calus masses on flash which can be found in tons in the inete. Animation of the Uboga. Music is even more or less. 3) Gameplay: Gameplay is not bad as opposed to graphics, oddly enough the game turned out to be extremely addictive. We have 3 levels of difficulty, they change the ending (not to say strongly), 50 waves with 5 bosses (1 for each 10 wave). You can manually cut these waves and save on the update parameters and armor, but you can on the money to build towers, grouping them into the castle. Defenders are put On them, so theoretically the game can be played in the style of Tower Defence. There is a local coop, unfortunately crooked made, because for the game on one computer need controllers and clave. That'S just in my case, the game flatly refused to recognize my controllers, so I had to play alone. As a result: the artist on the soap, but the programmer should pay tribute. The Game addictive, for a while, but it is in principle and well, for an hour for 3 can collect all the Acachivki, and then it was and pass the game all three times at different levels of difficulty. After that, there is nothing to do there. Not sure that the game is worth its full cost, but with a big discount to take it still possible. 5 waves of ghosts out of 10.
