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.

Minus its co-op niggles, Aegis Defenders pulls off its ambitious gameplay mechanics with ease. All of its elements, while seemingly disparate, end up working quite well together giving Aegis Defenders a sense of cohesion, making it a quirky, engaging game worth checking out.

I had a lot of fun with Aegis Defenders. I really liked the action platforming elements of the game, but what surprised me the most were tower defense sections. Setting up my defenses and planning for an attack is very fun, creating a unique and cohesive experience I wasn't expecting. Play this game on PS4 right now since it has a lot of fun to offer.

There are some genuinely tense moments to be had here with its numerous smart ideas and a rather decent execution. Cooperating with your partner during the hectic tower defense segments make for an experience unlike any other. Aegis Defenders is available on PlayStation 4, Switch and both Windows and Mac OS X on Steam.

Aegis Defenders is a passion project in every sense of the phrase, and it shows. From its fleshed-out world and characters, to the gorgeous soundtrack, and frantically fun gameplay, it makes for a wholly unique experience. While each individual aspect is great on its own, Aegis Defenders truly is a game that's greater than the sum of its parts.

Barring some unfortunate bugs and one design decision that hampered my experience, Aegis Defenders is a smooth, well-thought-out ride. The original art, charm, and in-game universe only add to it, and I'd love to see more.
