Comment: This is a fantastic mix of two of my favorite genres of gaming- tower defense and action-RPG. I got into tower defense with custom Warcraft III maps years ago but never played anything like them since then. Recently I’ve also been into RPGs, and the blend they have created in Dungeon Defenders is something that you just don’t see in games these days.
The game is good on its own, but really wouldn’t be anything if you can’t play with others. It’s much to difficult to solo most of the maps, especially if you are a low level character, regardless of the difficulty setting.
And despite what the screenshots of the action may show, this game is quite a lot of RPG elements, it isn’t just an action game branded with the RPG genre title to get buyers. There is a customization system that differs strategically depending on which character you choose to play as. The game also has tons of loot and a currency system to purchase rare upgrades and items with, making the entire product worthwhile to many different types of gamers. The low $15 price tag definitely justifies the amount of depth you’ll get out of this game!
