About the Game

In this first full-story expansion to the award-winning Defense Grid, GLaDOS, the menacing AI from Valve’s awesome Portal franchise, guest stars and shakes up the Defense Grid world. Players will battle not only alien hordes, but the deviousness of GLaDOS as she tests the player’s skills and changes all of the rules that you have come to know. Can you protect the cores in spite of her intrusive testing?

Defense Grid: The Awakening is a unique spin on tower defense gameplay that will appeal to players of all skill levels. A horde of enemies is invading, and it's up to the player to stop them by strategically building fortification towers around their base. Beautiful environments, spectacular effects, and a dynamic, engaging soundtrack bring the world to life. The controls are intuitive and the gameplay is deep — the special attacks and properties of each tower work together to provide many ways to succeed.

Defense Grid: You Monster adds:

  • 8 new maps with an all new story.

I just finished the story modes of this new DLC and cannot recommend it enough if you already like Defense Grid. And if you are a Portal fan (who isn't?), then I recommend it all the more! This DLC is different from all the previous ones (aside from the Portal theme), in that every level throws in some new and interesting twist unlike anything seen in the main game. I guarantee you will be surprised at some of the unique wrenches GLaDOS throws into the works. It's really fun, and also challenging. Definitely pick this one up if you already own DG, or maybe even if you don't. And now, if you'll excuse me, I must get back to playing all of the alternate game modes :) ...

Thankfully, not just "more of the same"!
The new missions successfully shake up existing strategies, at least on the first playthrough. The enemy waves are also more challenging - definitely not DLC for beginning players.
