Over dit spel

Defense Grid: The Awakening is een unieke draai op tower defense-gameplay die aan zal slaan bij spelers van alle vaardigheidsniveaus. Een horde vijanden is aan het binnenvallen, en het is aan de speler om ze te stoppen door strategisch verdedigingstorens rond zijn of haar basis te bouwen. Prachtige omgevingen, spectaculaire effecten, en een dynamische, meeslepende soundtrack brengen de wereld tot leven. De besturing is intuïtief en de gameplay is diep — de speciale aanvallen en eigenschappen van elke toren werken samen om vele verschillende methodes om te slagen te maken.
  • Hoge herspeelbaarheid Er zijn ongeveer 8 uur aan gameplay in het hoofdverhaal, en vele speeluren in de challenge-standen die spelers unieke begincondities en doelen geven. Elk spellevel is erg herspeelbaar, en kan op meerdere manieren opgelost worden, met verhoogde beloningen voor betere efficiëntie.
  • Grote verscheidenheid aan vijanden Gedurende de loop van het spel vechten spelers tegen 15 verschillende soorten vijanden die steeds sterker worden, en verscheidene strategieën gebruiken om voorbij de verdediging van de speler te komen. Terwijl je je door de levels heen werkt worden de vijanden steeds sterker en moeilijker om te verslaan.
  • 20 unieke levels Defense Grid: The Awakening heeft 20 unieke omgevingen, elk met een verschillende layout van wegen, torenbouwlocaties en open gebieden om een strategie rond te plannen.
  • Vele torenopties en upgrades Er zijn 10 verschillende soorten torens met 3 bekwaamheidsniveaus per stuk. Elke toren heeft unieke eigenschappen die invloed hebben op hun ideale locatie, zoals een zichtslinie-aanval of ballistisch pad-vuur. Sommige torens verbeteren andere nabije torens, en sommige zijn ideaal op bepaalde locaties, zoals een achterhoede-toren die een vernietigende aanval loslaat.
  • Steam-prestaties Het succesvol voltooien van elk level levert je een bronzen prestatiebeloning op. Verdere doelen leveren je zilveren en gouden beloningen op voor een bepaald niveau. Een beginneling kan dan wel misschien de aanval overleven, maar alleen een ervaren speler zal alle gouden prestaties weten te bemachtigen.

Defense Grid: Resurgence Map Pack

New Maps, New Strategies, New Experiences, and New Achievements From the Creators of Defense Grid
Defense Grid: Resurgence is the first premium expansion for Defense Grid: The Awakening and is made up of 8 new highly polished and balanced maps from the original creators. Each week in June over four consecutive weeks a new pair of maps will be released providing new environments and strategic experiences and requiring new ways of thinking to beat back the aliens and protect your cores. Each map pack contains 2 maps each with a campaign mode and 4 additional modes associated with the design of that level. New Steam achievements and high-score leaderboards are associated with each map pack.
Defense Grid: Resurgence Map Pack 1
Service Interruption and Height of Confusion
  • Two new challenging Defense Grid environments are the first two released in the Resurgence DLC. An obstructed road to the core housing gives the aliens a significant advantage in Service Interruption. Choose your towers wisely! Height of Confusion has a wide open surface, making for endless possibilities! Build anywhere you want in your defense of the power cores!
Defense Grid: Resurgence Map Pack 2
Risk Exposure and Roundabout
  • Don’t miss out on the next two maps in the Resurgence series. Risk Exposure will allow you to discover your ability to defend two independent power core housings! Limited build spaces will test your skills as you divide your resources to discover optimal tower placement. On Roundabout, you will be faced with numerous possibilities for pathing and a variety of elevation changes. This one will have you going in circles to contain the alien menace!
Defense Grid: Resurgence Map Pack 3
Urban Planning and Tactical Diversion
  • It’s the third of four great map packs in the Resurgence series. Urban Planning is a dense environment with restrictive build spaces, forcing difficult decisions against continuously attacking hordes. In Tactical Diversion, survey the small, snow covered platform and consider numerous possibilities. But be prepared for the aerial assault!
Defense Grid: Resurgence Map Pack 4
Kill Zone and Overflow
  • The final installment of the Resurgence series includes two more environments sure to challenge your tactical planning. In Kill Zone, will you construct your defenses near the spiral road in, the spiral road out, or the open platform in the middle? Perhaps all three! But you’ll need to be on your toes to deter the invaders. Overflow has numerous connected platforms that will provide countless options to turn back the enemies. Will you be able to keep the cores safe?

I first owned this game on the Xbox 360.. and needless to say I played it to death.. cleared allmost every single level and challenge mode...

It was such an amasing game I decided to get it through steam and continue to play it over and over again....

Such fun can be had for such a simple yet effective tower based game.. Don't take me wrong though the game concept is simple but the game itself is deffinately not a quick game to complete. The levels and content for this game gives you a good 100+ hours of playing...

Yes.. I know I have currently only clocked up 71mins.. but to be fair I did spend well over 200 hours playing it on the xbox.. I Enjoyed it that much I would go back and see if I could just improve my scores and times on each level just to beat my friends scores.

I have played many different tower defense games, on many different formats and hardware. But this by far is the best tower defense game I have ever played. Yes this is the original Defense Grid in all its glory, but it has a sequal now. I have not played Defense Grid 2 yet, but if the video's of it are anything to go by then I would say you will like it just as much as this version.

Game Play - 10 / 10
Graphics - 9 / 10 (Only because its a little dated now)
Music - 8 / 10
Longevity - 11 / 10

Overall - 9.9 / 10
For all the very minors gripes I have this is a must have for any tower defense game. I mean the only reason I mark it down slightly is due to its age now, but other than that its just about perfect.

Cant wait to finish it and move on to Defense Grid 2...

I have played this sice it first came out and still do, because I can not find an equall to it. If you love tower style games this is the best I can find. If anyone knows of a better or equall please let me know. I wish they would make no content for it. I'd by in a heart beat. For the cost it is by far best bang for the buck.

Not sure how to write this review....

I wish there was an apathetic or indifferent option I could click for games like this. Its not the greatest tower defense game I've played, but not the worst either. Its fun for an afternoon in my opinion.

It was good enough that I bought the second one when I saw it for a good price though so I guess I should give it a thumbs up.

A really addictive and fun tower defense game! Some DLC with new maps make the replayability even higher.
There are some odd design flaws though.

For example: Some maps let you put towers in a way to block off or form new paths for the aliens, however when all paths are blocked for the aliens, the alien will just go straight through the towers (flaw 1, shouldn't be possible to block their path at all).
When you blocked off the path and the aliens go through the towers, the game lets you know that at the moment when the aliens are already through and it's to late to respond to that! (flaw 2) it feels like a punishment for their design faults.

Anyway, if you take your time to plan where you put your towers this shouldn't be a problem. ;)
I picked the game up in a humble bundle and paid maybe just €0,50- , but it's definetely worth it's full price of €8,99 ;)

Tower defense at its best. Being able to place your towers in such a way that it forces the baddies to take longer paths is extremely enjoyable and challenging.

Key features:

- Block baddies just as they're getting near your cores, forcing them to re-route.
- Bounce a train of baddies back and forth between two paths by repeatedly opening one and blocking the other.
- Unspent money earns interest so if you build just the towers you need, you'll have even more money later on.
- Create "kill zones" with your most powerful towers + slowing towers + bonus money towers to maximize efficiency.
- Cool story with some great DLC (The Portal cross-over DLC is top notch)
- Alternate modes/achievements will keep you playing for a long time

This is by far and away the best tower defense game I've played. The game is very simple to play, pick a tower type, choose where you want to put it, watch it kill aliens. The aliens are trying to steal power cores, your job is to kill the aliens before they can make off with them. You start with limited money, but gain more by killing aliens. The challenge comes from making the best tactical use of that money. You need to pick the optimum type of tower for the available locations to place them in. Some of the maps are cleverly designed to let you place towers and divert the path the aliens take to the cores. Choose wisely and your towers will kill lots of aliens, earn you more money for more towers, and the power cores will be saved. Choose badly and you will slowly be overrun and the cores lost.

All of the maps have massive replayability with different modes offering different objectives. Your scores are also ranked against everyone else who has played. Think you found the optimum way to play a map? Take a look at the highscores and think again! Scores are based on the number of cores you managed to save, the money you have left at the end of a map and the sale value of the towers that you have built. The less you have spent, the better your score will be. Getting the highest scores requires using the bare minimum of towers leaving you constantly on the edge of failure. Experiment, improve your tactics, watch your name rise through the ranks. There are literally 100's of hours worth of gameplay to be had from the main game, and 100's more from the DLC, which is all excellent.

As of this writing, this game is almost 7 years old. For perspective, it came out only a year after The Orange Box did. When it was first released, it was undeniably the best tower defense game in the world -- but that's not surprising, because its only competition was Desktop Tower Defense and a handful of other shoddy flash games that were starting to ride the trend.

A lot of time has passed since then, and hundreds of weird and interesting tower defense games have been released. So, is Defense Grid still the best? ...Honestly, I have no clue. I haven't played as many tower defense games over the years as I would have liked, and I blame it all on the quality and longevity of this one.

The people who made Defense Grid understand where tower defense came from. Everything about this game is built to look, feel, and sound like retro StarCraft, from the isometric view, to the color choices, to the tower types and damage types. Gun towers are basically bunkers of marines, inferno towers are bunkers of firebats, cannon towers are bunkers of ghosts, and so on. They’ve even borrowed some classic towers from other games, like the tesla coils from the Red Alert series. Even today, it still hits me with that old 2002-era nostalgia of searching for tower defense maps on and that pumped feeling of starting the map with a full lobby of people (because, of course, you needed a full lobby to even have a chance!)

The biggest reason why Defense Grid is so great is because of its scoring system, which rewards even the tiniest improvements in performance with exponentially more money and score. It appeals greatly to the gamer's OCD, since the better you play the beginning of a mission, the more freedom you have to build deadly mazes for the remainder of the mission, the easier victory becomes, and the more often you can see your score skyrocket into the hundreds of millions. Fast-forward and checkpoint-rewinding controls make it simple to re-do every wave until it is perfect. It also creates an ultra-hardcore metagame with a massive curve of leaderboard scores, if you’re into that kind of competition. You’ll need to learn some really annoying advanced techniques if you want to break into the top 100 on any mission, or you could choose to compete in maps and game modes where the techniques don’t apply. Or you could simply choose to compete with yourself and your friends, or just aim for the pre-set gold medals. It’s really up to you.

I've got over 130 hours logged into this, and I'm finally coming down the home stretch of getting all the achievements. God, this game has a lot of content, thanks to over 4 years of continued support and expansion sets. The expansion sets are quite solid, too; at one point I thought I had found a strategy which works on any mission, but then the DLC campaigns came and changed all the rules, and made me rethink everything.

Is Defense Grid still the best? Probably not, and I will have a lot of tower defense games to explore once I’m done with this one. But one thing is for certain: this game is the sole reason why future tower defense games had to start trying new things, because it got the basics about as perfect as they can possibly get… at least for those of us who still occasionally see hordes of zerglings filing through mazes of bunkers in our waking dreams.

I've played a lot of Tower Defenders in my time, and this one is unequivocally the best! The balance and learning curve are manageable, with just the right level of challenge for players. The Voice acting is way above expectations for this price level, and the script is both funny and tragic in places. Once you've completed the story, the journey continues in a wide array of DLC, which is reasonably priced and well-sized. Also the range of "Challenge" levels like Go back through this stage using only machine guns make you rethink a map and re-creates it for you. If you only play one TD game (and you should try everything once, except incest and folk dancing) make it this one.

This is not only an excellent tower defense game, it's just plain fun to play. The base game has plenty of maps and a great selection of different towers to place. The game is very challenging to find all the right combo's of towers and also the placement of the towers.

Plenty of different aliens make their way onto the map, learning what aliens are on each map will really affect what towers you will use. Right clicking on an alien will provide much needed info about the alien to help you make tower choices. The UI for the game is very good, making it easy to get towers placed quickly. The wide variety of maps and types of games you can play on each map keeps the game fresh and keeps you coming back to play once again trying to get all gold medals on every type of game.

The story line also makes the game fun as well. I'm still playing the base game right now and nearly have story mode complete and already have 70+ hours logged on the game and am not bored with it one bit and I still have all the DLC to get into as well.

I highly recommend this game as a good challenge but something you can sit down and play anytime.

For people trying to decide on the current Humble Weekly Sale: "Defense Grid Gold" contains the base game, Borderlands DLC, and the 4 Resurgence map packs. It does NOT include Containment or You Monster, though maybe they'll add those in later.

Anyway, it's a very good tower defense game. Especially if you like raspberries.
