Top Critic Average
At the end of the day, the game is good. Sometimes the gameplay feels a little shallow and may even you feel like more could be added to the experience. This is easily overlooked, however, when you play with others. Fortified is worth buying if you enjoy Tower Defense style games.
In the end, Fortified is a decent tower defense game. The classes add some variety, and the shooting is fine, but the tower defense portion could use more work. It plays well with others, but there isn't much balance available for the solo player, especially since XP progression can become a grind. Coupled with an average presentation, it's decent fun with buddies but not something worth pursuing if you're looking to play solo.
An interesting mix between tower defense and third person shooting, it's surely not flawless, but can still deliver some solid entertainment.

Fortified is an enjoyable romp through a criminally underused setting, but is held back by the jack of all trades nature of the action tower defence genre. It'll be fun with friends, and for a few hours alone, but mileage may vary.
Fortified has an impressive pulp sci-fi pedigree and speedy co-op play, but the blending of shoot-em-up and tower defense gameplay stumbles.
Fortified is a decent first attempt at a wave-based, "tower defence" shooter from a studio that has, until now, made only mobile games.
If Tower Defense isn't your style though, then give this a miss… the different genre elements do make it more interesting and entertaining, but there isn't really enough there to make it a lasting experience… play through is extended a little by having the four different characters but the experience is not sufficiently different with each one to really make it much of a draw to play again just to see a few different weapons or short cut scenes.
Fortified is an okay action/tower defense hybrid with neato style but not much depth
While the style does draw you in, Fortified has a hard time keeping players invested, and its barebones multiplayer options really hamper what could have been a great online co-op choice for fans of tower defense and shooters.
Fortified is a solid mix of tower defense and action third-person shooting. Its design may not be all that original, but its execution is great and should entertain you, as well as your friends, via the cooperative mode.
