Critic Reviews for Aegis Defenders

With a local co-op buddy Aegis Defenders becomes a fun mix of genres, but when playing solo it canbe an exercise in frustration.

Platforming and tower defense do not mix well in Aegis Defenders.

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.

It's been quite a start to the year with the sheer videogame quality on show in 2018. Aegis Defenders is a title that totally delivers on its initial concept. It's a game that built on the obvious passion of the developers, resulting in something that's vibrant, fresh, enthralling and addictive. And when you've reached the end, you'll be heading back to the start for more.

Aegis Defenders takes two genres I like on their own and blends them together to create a memorable and fun experience that absolutely shines in co-op.

With great art and an interesting idea at its core, Aegis Defenders still would have needed quite a bit more refinement to really stand out.

The visuals are bright, smooth, and varied more than one might have expected.

Aegis Defenders is probably one of the tougher games I've played in recent memory, and that's all thanks to the tower defense sections.  Fans of that genre probably won't have too many issues, but newcomers playing alone might find those sections pretty daunting until they master switching characters, learning the arena layouts, and know what traps to use when.  If you have a friend to play co-op, you'll likely have a much easier time.  Still, it's a pretty good game for GUTS Department's first outing.
