Defense Grid 2 may not be the original idea, but with some nice new features this game is pretty good. And it can be just as addictive as Defense Grid: Awakening was. The story may be a little bit boring, but since you’re looking for some tower defense action, that is what Defense Grid 2 offers for you. If you like tower defense games, then this game is worth a try.


  • Multiplayer modes.
  • You can continue your game from where you left it.
  • Matchmaking system. Allows you to play campaign when you are using matchmaking system.
  • Leaderboards.

  • Story is a little bit boring.
  • Long matchmaking wait times.
