If Anomaly Warzone Earth was any indication that tower offense games were good, Anomaly 2 confirms that they're amazing. Play the game alone, and you'll discover a rich Story Mode with enough challenge and surprises to keep you coming back for more. Play it with others, and a whole new way of experiencing the game becomes available. No matter how you play it, Anomaly 2's enhancements and new features make it a game well deserving of your time.

Anomaly 2's campaign isn't especially original, but its multiplayer provides a fresh take on tower defense gameplay.

Anomaly 2 largely overcomes its few missteps though. 11 Bit Studios laid the foundation with the first game in the series and Anomaly 2 continues to reinforce the novelty of that foundation.

The story and characters are nothing to write home about, but the innovative spin on the genre's gameplay results in mentally engaging challenges that reward both quick thinking and deliberate planning, and the satisfactory visuals and sound effects don't hurt in augmenting this amazing abnormality's appeal either.

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.

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

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.
