Like I said, Anomaly 2 is pretty much more Anomaly but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Anomaly 2 will scratch that itch you likely have for reverse tower defense games and with a longer campaign, new units, plus multiplayer you'll definitely be satisfied with what this game brings to the table.

Generally speaking, it's a great tower offence game. There are some fun objectives in the levels and the mixture of juggling abilities, your squad's set-up and their direction is quite a thrilling challenge, which makes for some very satisfying gameplay.

Anomaly 2 then is a game well worth having if you've always wanted to see a tower defence game from the opposite side of the battle. Unfortunately the single player while entertaining won't last forever, and the ghost town multiplayer means there's very little reason to return once finished.

Overall Anomaly 2's release on the PS4 offers console players the chance to play an interestingly designed take on the tower defence genre in which we will hopefully see more of in the future.

Nevertheless, that recommendation comes with a caveat. As much as I enjoyed Anomaly 2, I have a very hard time recommending the console version to anyone. Even this non-PC gamer thinks I would have had a far better time with a keyboard and mouse.

Essentially a tower offense game, where militant Earth forces must destroy alien towers along their path, the Anomaly games have been remarkable.

11 bit Studios, the creators of Anomaly 2, have shown once again that small indie developers can achieve astounding things and Anomaly 2 has a lot going for it. As a tower defense game it is easily one of the best, and the gameplay is a welcome change to the traditional formula.

The novelty wears thin when you realize that you've actually been playing Tower Offense games for a very long time as "Real Time Strategy" games. Here Anomaly 2 is trying to reinvent its own wheel with little tiny incremental upgrades instead of taking the same drastic approach that gained it such praise in the first place.

If you are looking for a new multiplayer game to play on your PlayStation 4, Anomaly 2 may not fit the bill, unless the population increases. The narrative missions provide a challenging experience, even for veterans of the traditional tower defense genre and Anomaly series.

Despite some of the new additions failing to add much to the core concept, Anomaly 2's tower-offense gameplay is still fun enough on its own to warrant checking out.
