In the end, Aegis Defenders proves to be a solid title with appealing visuals and well-established mechanics. More gripping on its co-op mode, this twelve-hours campaign can be a harsh journey if you try to fulfill it on your own.

Though it comes with a few control quirks and team AI quibbles, Aegis Defenders is still an engaging experience that marries two unlikely genres together in smart and clever ways.
Aegis Defenders is a fantastic game, brilliantly blending the tower defense and platforming genres in a unique way to produce a memorable and enjoyable experience. Lovable characters, interesting lore, plenty of secrets, engaging gameplay, and gorgeous presentation combine to make this a must-have title for your Switch. We would recommend this to anybody looking for a detailed world to immerse themselves in, or to somebody looking for that next game to play through with a friend. Aegis Defenders is a real gem on the eShop; don't miss out on this one.
Aegis Defenders comes highly recommended. The level design is inspired, challenging players to adapt their playstyle on the fly, and the gameplay is riveting and enjoyable. And it's all just so charming, with vibrant characters, witty dialogue, and a story that unfolds at a natural pace.
One part co-op adventure (that you can play by yourself), one part puzzle-solving journey, and many parts Tower Defense game, Aegis Defenders balances a lot of things, and it gets most of it right.
Aegis Defenders is a metrodivania/tower defense crossover that can be both fun and smart when played in co-op, but that could drive you mad if you try to play on your own.

Aegis Defenders is very much a decent game to play that successfully blends action-platforming and tower defense together.
Aegis Defenders fuses two genres seamlessly, providing one of the best tower defense experiences in years.
It may sound like I'm dishing out a lot of praise but I think just 'fun' describes Aegis Defenders quite perfectly.
A charming set of characters in a post apocalyptic world help to keep the player interested in this fascinating combination of action platformer and tower defence game. While the pace can feel a little off in places overall the game is a lot of fun and the splitscreen co op is a brilliant inclusion to keep you playing through,
