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.

I dislike this game as a tower defense game because it isn't. A few maps are heavily dependent upon towers at easier difficulties but you quickly discover that the right combination of character and weapon can do more damage than all your towers combined, and hard mode is designed with this in mind. There are some levels where you can do 90% of the total damage done and still lose the round. And then the designers start trying to achieve greater difficulty by throwing in enemies that are 100% immune to towers, and then gimmicky enemies that towers stop targetting and then they return to 100% health if you don't kill them by yourself fast enough.

The worst part is that they have all the elements for perfection. Their map design is really creative but then they only give you a few walls and towers to work with, leaving you feeling like a kid drooling at the lego box for the Millenium Falcon but then looking down at your hand and realizing you only have a dozen blocks to work with. When you only have 2 towers going into round four and maybe 5 or 6 towers going into the final round, there's not much stategy. The game would be more more fun if you were given far more walls and towers and the outcome were determined more by your maze building and tower placement skills, rather than picking the right weapons and perks and then showing off on youtube by killing all the enemies without even bothering to build your token towers.

I thought this would be less of a problem in survival mode but there is no true survival mode. Survival is just normal mode with the normal waves but it repeats after the last wave and just boosts the health, speed, and regen of enemies by a LOT. So rather than being a mode where you can try to build the perfect setup and then see how many waves of every increasing monsters you can last through, you're instead just left with another form of hard mode that lasts maybe two or three times as long as normal.

I've never seen a game be SO close to perfection and then just ruin it with poor design choices. But if you like PVE FPS then I do still recommend this game for you. Just don't expect much tower strategy in hard mode or you'll be disappointed.

Sanctum 2: A Review

You might be wondering, why am I reviewing it now, why not 6 months ago, or even when it came out? The simple truth is this. Sanctum 2 has been out for a little more than a year now and in that time the game itself has gone though many changes. So much so that it is hardly the game it was whence it first arrived on the market. Sure it's always been a FPS/tower defence, but in such a different way than when it was first released that a whopping 3 whole days after it's release, the Devs released a patch that set in motion the game you see before you today.

Now, your time is precious, and I understand that, so for those looking for just the short answer to the question: "Should I buy this game?" That answer is, unequivocally, and without a doubt in my mind, wholeheartedly, seriously why haven't you just pushed the add to cart button and checked out already?!?!

For those of you who are of the more discerning...Steam...Steam-inites? Steam-ies? What suffix do we use to classify the people of our wonderful Steam Community? Hmm I wonder... In any case, for those of you wanting to be convinced, there are several reasons why this is the game for you, your mother, your brother's dog, and that pen-pal Geoffrey who you wrote to and exchanged letters with in primary school from Uzbeki-beki-stan-stan, that always said he was going to come visit, but never really had the means to do so; still it was nice to see someone from the other side of the planet and who had just as many gramatical and spelling errors in their writings as third grade you did back in the day. Yeah, remember Geoffrey? Well even though he wont be visiting "Amerika", he probably now plays this game and if you play this game too, the both of you have the option of text to speech chat! Ah yes, you heard me correctly, TEXT. TO. SPEECH. In an almost Stephen Hawking like manner (until you select your character that is), you can wow the masses with literal pronunciations of the written English language which is always good for a laugh, but terrible for poor old Geoffrey who's been desperately trying to learn how to pronounce words that he couldn't learn from his Speak&Spell.

"Ok, so what's so great about that", you ask as you feel so very smug in your smug chair, wearing your smug bathrobe, listening to smug jazz, sipping your imported smugness coffee/tea/caffinated beverage, and occasionally adjusting your monocle...smuggly. Listen here Smuggy, have you ever heard Stephen Hawking sing the theme to the A-Team? No, you haven't? WELL I HAVE. And this game has let me do that, it sounded much like I thought it would if Stephen Hawking were part of the A-Team. "Big deal", you say? Well a little known fact about Stephen Hawking is that he has relatives, that's right, relatives! And whether they're actually related or not there's a player here in our very own Steam Community who goes by the very similar name of Tiger Hawkins.
*(Flashback)*
Long ago, in a galaxy far far away... he very bravely (and without the use of right pinky) fought off hordes of Lumes (the game's monsters) in a Survival challenge set forth by the Developers in Sanctum 1 with the promise of everlasting fame, fortune, and imortalization within their games. Alone on the battle field his war raged on, until finally, he cleared the threshold of damage being able to be dealt and beat the Devs at their own game! (Actually he just survived the most waves out of anyone...ever) He was imortalized in both games just as the Devs had promised, and he lived happily ever after.
*(End Flashback)*

Feel like the game has been out far too long for you to bandwagon onto? Not a chance! With every new Steam sale, a horde of eager beavers, not unlike yourself, flood through the gates of Elysion One Core Guardian training grounds and look like a bunch of fools until someone with a little more knowhow plays a map with you and corrects the error of your ways. To which you feel a little butt-hurt about it and you go off and play single player for a while until you realize that "HOLY CRAP, THIS ISN'T LIKE OTHER FPS GAMES IN WHICH THE ONLINE COMMUNITY IS JUST FULL OF RUDE ASSHATS AND TROLLS, AND THEY WERE JUST TRYING TO HELP ME LEARN!!!!" (*cough* sorry, accidental capslock and whatnot)
Seriously, the co-op community in Sanctum 2 is very quick to come to the defense of someone who is 1.) New. 2.) Under Attack. or 3.) Being yelled by someone who they themselves aren't pulling their own weight.

Want to be UBER L33T 360 NOSCOPE 420BLAZE-IT and go charging in head first, not a care in the world, complete disregard for your own safety for the sake of your own team mates? Go right ahead, so long as you have the right perks equiped. "Wait a minute, there's perks too?" Yes, there are. There are TONS of them, and you get to pick a few per map to help customize your own play style. Don't feel as though you need to be the guy mentioned above as you would rather spend your time building a map so that your towers do all the hard work? Sure, that's possible too! Find that you're at neither extreme and would like to join the rest of us under the Bell-curve? Great, see you there! *high five*

Character skins, DLC maps, guns, perks, DEATH, Sanctum two has it all! But wait, order now in the next immediate time frame and CoffeeStain studios will supersize your order by throwing in their trademark easter eggs! Ever wanted to occupy your character with some rad-arcade-gaming action while you wait for your online friends to decide whether to upgrade this tower over here, or that one over there? BOOM! Wish granted! There are game stations that you can find in game maps that will allow you to play games within the game! Game-ception! (Except that I really hate this trend of adding "ception" to anything that happens within itself. Yes the movie started it all, but the title when way over your heads. Inception, was what it was called because of the plot point of planting the seed of an idea, not because they needed to go 12 billion layers deep! Whatever, Game-ception!)

If that last point hasn't convinced you then there's not so much more I can do to convince you other than letting you know that this game has a super chill soundtrack, significant amounts of replay-ability, and you get to shoot things in the face/back/butt/weakspot, causes you to think and then punishes you for making bad decisions, and when you finally manage to beat it, you enable the Feats of Strength, and relearn every single mechanic the game has with expert precision, timing, and bragging rights per wave when the MVP status is awarded.
Buy the game.
Buy the DLC.
And maybe, just maybe, this wonderful game will reunite you with Geoffrey.

Sanctum does look impressive, visually. The white laboratory theme from the first Sanctum is only a small portion of the sequel, with outside environments making up most of the campaign levels. Many of the enemies are carried over from the first game and look pretty much the same. The sound design is excellent, with great weapon sounds and music that sets the science-fiction atmosphere incredibly well. It isn't quite as much tower defense as fans of the first game would probably hope for, since more of the emphasis this time around is placed on the first-person shooting element. It also hides way too much information from the player, leading to a lot of guess-and-check strategies. The game remains a refreshing hybrid of genres, however, and many of the frustrations temporarily wash away as you lay witness to the last enemy in the last wave die, proving that your strategic planning and accurate shooting have paid off.

Great Tower defence game, brings together most good TD concepts like a Hero who can move around and kill guys, walls to build mazes, points give power to towers, leading to upgrades etc etc. Oh yeaah and its first person, really good there too. AND AND AND it can run on computers that are potatoes!

only thing I can't really care for is the fact you have to level up to unlock stuff. I wish my friends could just join in as powerful as me. I'd rather collect all feats of strength than grind to max level.

Story: 9/10 (Solid, and fresh)
Gameplay: 10/10
Presentation: 10/10 (it's own sort of theme, +Originality points)
Soundtrack: 8/10 (not annoying not memorable)
Replayability: 10/10

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.

Sanctum 2 is a very original uniqe blend of a First Person Shooter and a Tower Defense game.

Before each round you take time to construct/upgrade defensive towers, paths and then protect your energy cores from the hordes of different enemies until the round is over.
Along with the large selection of defensive towers that can be placed, you also have a nice selection of load outs and character perks to choose from.

Desite also being a indie game this really does shine with it gameplay, artstyle and excellent asking price of $15.

The game is best played with friends and Steam offers a very reasonable price on the 4-pack, which is a good idea for anyone wanting to play with friends.

Its on sale now, just get it if you didn't already.
worth full price though, 3$ is a giveaway.

FPS with Tower defense and strategy elements, amazingly implemented, its kind of its own.
Great graphics, Sold gameplay, nice shooting, good enemies and huge bosses.
Try to play it with a friend, Co Op is really fun. works very well within steam system.
Sanctum 2 Complete Pack is recommended.

Just before you buy it, I advise you to see some gameplay video, it will give an idea how this game works, after all not everyone like tower defense.

+ Very well-implemented blend of FPS and Tower Defense
+ Good variety of towers that felt well-balanced and purposeful
+ Plethora of unlockables that go hand-in-hand with a simple experience/leveling system
+ Larger variety of weapons than what I was expecting, though you can't change your primary until much later in the game
+ Audio and visual quality were both satisfactory
+ Very well optimized game
+ Multiplayer co-op was very well done, and adds more replay value to the game

- Some levels can be inordinately difficult, even with other players
- In all levels, allocated resources are SLIM; often this adds to the challenge, but more often it will make you pull your hair out (Looking at you, CANOPY)

I love this game. Me and my friend play it for fun because it just rubs our chesthairs the right way. I do find myself slightly excited by the game because some of these looms (enemies) resemble very arrousing features. For example the bobble heads, giant, three legged towering creatures with glowing, pulsating bumps on the top, the mutator, another short, stimpy, three legged creature that squirts out gooey white substance that "mutates" other looms. The flying things that spit green balls out at you slightly resemble the Andre The Giant Obey picture. Idk why. And to top it all off, the flying things resemble either squidward or the flying spaghetti monster. Anyways, it's a great game. Creds to the guy that made those exciting figures. ;) Looking forward to a sequel with monsters featuring more exciting things. SANCTUM IS LOVE. SANCTUM IS LIFE.

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...

Sanctum 2 is a unique concept that utilizes the tower defense genre to deliver a satisfying fresh experience, Sanctum 2 cleaned up and made the overall mechanics more efficient compared to Sanctum 1, the graphics were inproved and more content was included (more through DLC content). Sanctum 2 includes a interesting plot that you may continue to look into further if you desire however the gameplay is where the game shines as the game is very enjoyable and offers alot of variation when it comes to maps, characters and potential towers and their placement. You get conplete freedom over your arsenal this includes swapping weapons, perks, characters and appearance (optional skin pack). Sanctum 2 difficulty levels vary and add interesting new effects to make your experience more thrilling. Overall Sanctum 2 deserves a 8/10

I was a bit skeptical about this game. At first, it appeared to be a simple tower defense game, where you can fight in as well. But I have to say, I'm pleasantly surprised.

The tower defense bit I can be simple about: It's your basic tower defense. Machine guns, high damage guns, slowdown turrets, those kinda weapons are available, and all upgradable. You can buy them with credits you earn through gameplay. You place these guns on blocks, that you can use to lay out the path for the enemy to follow.

For the ingame fighting, you can choose from 4a5 characters to play, which basically determines your main weapon: Shotgun, sniper, machinegun. By leveling you get access to more weapons and other stuff. Although the weapons are not upgradable, you can use perks to increase their damage.

But it's the versatility of the in-game combat that give it that little bit extra that makes it interesting. You can engage some enemies, so they attack you and can be lured away from the path. Some enemies have higher damage points on their bodies, for extra damage, if you can hit it. Some perks can really help in killing off those enemies. In short, it's not just simple shooting that has been added, it gives it that little extra that makes you wanna play the game some more, just to try out those little extra perks or weapons, to see if you can get further.

There is 4 player coop, where all resources can be shared freely.

And graphically, it's ok. I do like how they added the little men to fight with you. They suck at combat, but it's a little extra that gives the game a 'face'.

Basically, if you like tower defense and FPS, you'll like this.

Sanctum Two is an excelent game where you play the role of a person who kills things. That's it. That's all I know.

Now that I got that out of the way, I can say that this game is amazing! It's a perfect mix between Tower defense and First person action. However, the game can get quite challenging without people to play with, as well as boring. Over all, it's a fun game, if you loke games that reqire a decent amount of strategy, not just how quickly you can move your mouse. So, here's the verdict.

PROS:
Good gameplay
Lively visuals
Decent ammount of strategy involved
Can make the game say "Jimmy Nutrin" simply by typing it
Great with friends

CONS:
Nobody ever plays it
Boring on your own
Difficult solo
Virtually no story

Pros:
+Not your usual Tower Defense game.
+A large amount of maps, at least half of them with unique layouts that require differen strategies to beat.
+A fair amount of different enemies, some with unique traits or weakspots, especially on the DLCs.
+Choice of perks and weapons can really make the play experience of each map different.
+Fair amount of playtime, around 30-40 hours if you include the DLCs (which fortunately ain't very expensive), more if you are going for the Feats achievements.
+Text to voice chat which can be quite amusing during group play.
+A sorta decent story with cool comic-like presentation. Not the best thing ever but it works fine.
+Perhaps not something meaningful for other people, but being a Coop game where you actually have to work together with your allies rather than shoot them on the face as any FPS is a big pro for me.

Cons
-Some turrets can be... well, entirely useless, while others become more or less a must have for most of the maps (ex: Violator), ruining in some way the porpuse of having a wide variety of turrets.
-When playing with others, if you have a lvl 30+ player join with new players or low level ones, the player with high level can make many of the first half of maps trivial or way too easy.

Veredict:
While it is not the perfect game or one to call "game of the year!" or similar, it is a fun game to play if you have nothing better to, even more if you have friends to play it with and its not an expensive one at that (and it often goes on sale here on Steam).
