Critic Reviews for Anomaly 2

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

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.

Multiplayer shines brightly alongside a short but dynamic campaign in the tower offense sequel Anomaly 2.

Anomaly 2 is an immediate and exciting strategy game unlike any other, but over time the repetition and lack of depth leaves something to be desired. It's a welcome distraction on a phone or tablet, but the limits of the game are quickly noticed when played in long bursts on PC. For fans of the first that looked past these shortcomings, Anomaly 2 is a bigger, smarter, and better looking game.

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.

A tough-as-nails tactical challenge is hard to find in today's console market, and Anomaly 2 will probably be enough to scratch your strategical itch. Without a strong multiplayer community behind it though, I would say skip the PS4 release and head straight for PC if you have the means.
