Reviews

  • “…an intoxicating blend of co-op FPS action and strategic TOWER DEFENSE.” - IGN - 8.5/10
  • "...the most fun I've had with a tower defense game in a long time." - Game Informer - 8.5/10

About This Game

Sanctum 2 is the sequel to the world’s first Tower Defense/FPS hybrid game. Pick from four unique character classes and embark on a mission to protect the oxygen-producing Cores from hordes of deadly aliens who are threatened by their existence. Outfit your character exactly the way you want through the new and extensive customization system. Choose your own loadout of towers, weapons and perks, but choose wisely because you are humanity’s last defense against the unrelenting hordes set out to destroy it.

Sanctum 2 is a new game completely rebuilt from the ground up using community feedback and innovative design to really push the bar of what an independent studio can do.

Intense Action – Deep Strategy


In Sanctum 2, you will utilize elements from multiple gameplay genres to succeed. Construct towers and walls during the building phase before the enemies attack, then jump into the fray and blast everything to pieces in FPS mode. You can progress through the single-player campaign yourself, or play with up to four friends in co-op to discover the secrets of the planet LOEK III and learn the backstory on why the aliens are so intent on destroying the Cores you are sworn to protect.

Key Features


Building on the success of the original game, Sanctum 2 stands alone as the only true FPS/Tower Defense hybrid. No other title delivers gameplay that seamlessly combines both genres.

  • Tower Defense – Design complex mazes and build powerful towers to stop the enemies from destroying the Cores.
  • First-Person Shooter – Don’t just sit back and watch, jump into the action yourself!
  • Four playable character classes – Each with their own unique strengths, weaknesses and weapons.
  • Vast Customization System – Pick perks or make the game crazy hard by adding Feats of Strength.
  • In-game Visual Novel – Unlock a comic-book page for every map you beat to discover the secrets of LOEK III.
  • Progression System – Increase your rank and unlock new weapons, towers and perks.
  • 4-Player Co-op – Progress through the storyline yourself or team up with other players whenever you want.

"Sanctum 2" As with previous releases, a bold blend of FPS and tower defense elements, but unlike its predecessor, the practical effect of the game much better. Sequel will mix and match all the elements and go in the right direction, improvements in almost all respects on the basis of the original. People play addictive, IGN also gave high evaluation absolute 8.5.

Sanctum 2 is just amazing, even better then the original. Combining First Person Shooters and Tower Defence into one was an amazing idea, but giving it a bigger storyline and more in-depth characters just made it so much better. The DLC's for Sanctum 2 just add to an already amazing story. With it's up to 4 player co-op, perk system and vast array of weapons, it really made me want to just keep playing it. The only things that drags it down are the limited amount of towers, only three tiers for towers and the lack of upgradeable weapons. Strongly suggested for people who greatly enjoyed the original.

This game is ridiulously entertaining in co-op. Even though the last 2 DLC-campaigns were a little easy, there are still some really tough maps and you will have countless hours of fun :^)

This is like the best TD I ever played. Skill tree? Check. Tons of towers at your disposal? Check. Endless replayability? Check! This game is definitely worth it.

If you are bored of the typical Tower defence games then this a very good option. The 3rd person makes it so more funnier than the other typical Tower defences.

First of all - If you like Sanctum 1 you will like it too (for me as minimum), it's same game with amazing improvements (characters, weapons, towers, maps, modern FPS RPG style atc...) + good story line for game this type, it becomes more active in Character gameplay and didn't lost "Sancum"s deep Tactical gameplay.
Second, if you don't know what I'm talking about - it's the FPS tower defence, where you must make tactical decisions, build towers and also need to shoot enemies, it's amazing and deep Tactical game with FPS elements, where wins smart choice and teamplay, RPG style character improvements gives this game more strategic/tactical freedom (what skill to take, or what tower-weapons).
Shortly - it's amazing game with quite cheap price for it, Really, 100% Recommend...

I did not like Sanctum 2. First of all, Sanctum 2 just did not have fun gameplay. I did not like the so called story because there really wasn't one. I know I shouldn't say that because some games don't have story, but this game just didn't. It wasn't even clear why they were in a sci-fi world or had these monsters trying to attack them.I thought this game was going to be similar to the game Orcs must die or Orcs must die 2 (That's why I bought it), but it was the more awful version of orcs must die. I did not like the monsters, traps and the voice acting. I played it with my friends, and they didn't like it either. I got this game in a humble bundle, but if youre going to buy this off of the steam store don't. This game is worth probably like $2.00 not the $14.99 it costs. Do not get this game, it is really bad for $14. For $5.00 I'll buy it, but not the price it really is.
