About the Game

All About Tower Offense vs. Tower Defense

Anomaly 2 is a sequel to the critically acclaimed Anomaly Warzone Earth. Maintaining the core elements of the original, Anomaly 2 adds new features to the single-player campaign and finally puts your skills to a test in a completely unique experience: the dynamic tower defense vs. tower offense multiplayer mode!

In the years following the invasion of Earth in 2018, the planet is overrun by alien machines. Humankind is on the verge of extinction. Banded together in huge convoys, they search the frozen tundra for food and supplies. Since the war, the roles have been reversed: now our species seems to be the Anomaly on a machine-controlled planet. Your convoy, Commander, is called Yukon.

Anomaly 2 takes the RTS tower-offense concept from Anomaly Warzone Earth to a new level. The core elements of the original – tactical planning and the on-field Commander to support troops in combat – are spiced up by a number of important new features.

Key Features:

  • Morph your troops into war mechs to discover the new face of strategy: each unit has a different mech form with various abilities to help you overcome specific combat situations.
  • Engage in a multiplayer experience unique to Anomaly 2: tower defense vs. tower offense. Play as the towers and destroy the humans or lead the humans to annihilate the alien towers.
  • Fight across a post-apocalyptic world in a new single-player campaign that offers a more intense strategy experience than the acclaimed original.
  • Carve your own path to victory and create your ultimate battle squad. With over million tactical combinations to build your squad, your options in combat are nearly endless.
  • Dive into a beautifully rendered world, thanks to the team’s upgraded and improved visual engine.
  • Experience alternative endings dependent upon your approach to enemy machines in the campaign.

☺ A role reverse of Tower Defence done very well.
☺ Intense gameplay.
☺ Good visuals.

☹ Feels more like an expansion than a sequel.
☹ Limited tactics.

(NOTE: This Review only takes into consideration the Single Player Campaign).

Anomaly 2 see's you take up the role of a commander, who's squad are wrapped in a struggle against an infestation of machine towers who's only goal is to destroy all which enters their firing range.

Anomaly proved you could make a great game by switching the roles of Tower Defence, forcing you to be in command of the troops rather than the towers and making strategic choices of what your squad is composed of, how and when to assist that squad during battle and the route you shall take to your objectives. Anomaly 2 goes a step further by giving your squad the ability to transform on the fly, expanding your options at any given time and also throws in a few more enemy towers.

The gameplay can be quite frantic as you manage your abilities in the heat of battle and scoop up additional abilities from destroyed towers, you can also pause the action to assign a new route for your troops or change the order your squad is currently in at anytime.

On a normal play through, I quickly found a squad set up that worked and while the transformations are useful at times (switching a front arc fire cannon to 360 degree missile fire for instance), I could largely switch to the preferred role and leave them be.

Anomaly 2 doesn't really do anything the original didn't already do. In fact, I preferred the original over this game (both the story and gameplay balance). Anomaly 2 feels more like an expansion than a sequel in many ways and as such, I wouldn't recommend the game unless you've got and enjoyed the original Anomaly: Warzone Earth and fancy more of the same - but I'd stress the original Anomaly is indeed recommended!

This was a good game. I found it an interesting concept being a reverse tower defense! It lacked colors but it was extremely puzzling at points. This is a strategic game that I recomend to all of you thinkers!

Anomally 2 best described as a tower offense game contains a very interesting system whereby you create a route on an overhead map that your units will follow, your job from there on out is to moderate the patrol on foot, shifting them between various modes of attack, giving them upgrades, and making sure they remain healthy and away from heavy fire by placing down various objects such as repairs and decoys, I'm quite enjoying it so far! Impressive visuals too, but apparently I need Alienware to experience those properly. What a shame I don't have copious amounts of spare cash. :)

My only gripe with the game would be that some enemies require use of a slower rate of fire to take down without ♥♥♥♥ing them off too much, but apparently the only way to prevent faster rate of fire units from shooting the ♥♥♥♥ out of them is to sell them for a price less than purchased... because a cease fire function would be far too complicated to incorporate, wouldn't it, 11 bit? :|

Anomaly 2 is the sequel to the innovative 2011 Anomaly: Warzone Earth. It’s a reverse tower defense game or tower offense in which you protect the attackers and destroy the towers. The premise of the game is simple – alien machines have invaded and Earth is in ruins. You are the only hope to reach the titular anomaly and destroy them. Regrettably, Anomaly 2 has more story exposition than its predecessor which wouldn’t be a bad thing if it wasn’t very poorly written and voice acted. You have all sorts of terrible cliches including hillbilly marines, an elderly German scientist and a younger female doctor all with equally horrible accents. At least you can skip all the cutscenes.

Anomaly 2 is all about the gameplay and that’s where it shines. The player takes over the role of the Commander unit which is tasked to protect and guide the military unit convoy. You can choose your route on the fly and you can buy, sell and upgrade units at any time. The novelty in Anomaly 2 that provides a pretty big twist is that you can morph any of your units to suit the challenges of the current battlefield. For example, the armored vehicle with a long range gatling gun morphs into a robot with devastating short range flamethrowers. The morph mechanic does a great job at keeping you on your toes as different situations require different tactics.

Your convoy can only consist of up to six vehicles and you only have five unit types (ten if you count the morph ability). The enemy towers are more varied than that. Apart from the low level towers, there are also big boss towers which deal great amounts of damage, predator towers which only appear as you’re already passing through, hacker towers that form a disruption field in which your units will attack your Commander unit and so on. As the Commander, you have four different abilities – repair units, launch a decoy, target a selected enemy and disable enemy tower. All of these enemy towers and the morph and Commander abilities come together to create a a very dynamic and at times extremely intense experience.

The campaign goes on for 14 missions across a slightly disappointing variety of environments. The first half of the game takes you across a frozen United States mid-west and New York City whereas the other half you’ll be fighting through the jungles of South America and Rio de Janeiro. Even though each mission is different enough, it all kind of boils down to snow levels and jungle levels. It also feels too short, the game only starts to really get going and then pretty soon after that it’s over.

The graphics are great, both the friendly and enemy unit designs looks really good, the weather effects and the explosions look awesome. The soundtrack doesn’t really stand out, but the sound effects really heighten the intensity of the carnage even further.

Anomaly 2 successfully manages to carve out its own place in a rather saturated genre thanks to its new ideas and interesting tactical gameplay mechanics.

7 OUT OF 10 (VERY GOOD)
