First things first:

------------------------------
THIS IS A HORRIBLE PORT!
------------------------------

I am sorry, but it is. This is exactly the mobile game, ported to PC without changing anything. It has no resolution options (and only a low/high quality setting, nothing else). It only runs in window mode or in a stretched (!) fullscreen mode. Really, really bad. I have a native resolution of 1920*1200, so why the hell can't I get this exact resolution in the game? Instead I get this ugly, stretched mess. But ok, I can live with it. Tower defense games were never about the graphics, right? The interface is exaxtly what I know from the iphone. They really didn't change a thing. For instance, if you drag a weapon to a free slot in the armory, it becomes zoomed in in your hand/mouse cursor, which makes sense on a mobile device. It looks horrible and ridiculous on a full HD display though. And they added absolutely nothing. No achievments, no trading cards, no nothing. I really have to assume, that the developers only wanted to make a quick buck with this.

Which is really a shame, because the game itself is actually great. It is exactly what i expect from a tower defense game. Looking at all the newer TD games which try to implement more interaction (like running around with a hero), this is rather old-school. And it is exactly how i like my TD games. Searech for optimal spots for your towers. Find the right balance between getting lots of interest each round and not dying. Love it! And the commander is a nice addition to the already great gameplay of its predecessors. It gives you a little bit of additional interaction, but not too much. For me personally the commander is about as much interaction (besides placing and upgrading towers) as I can take. Perfect!

I really like this game, and that's why it gets a thumbs up. I was really struggling though, because this port is basically a punch in the face of all Sentinel fans. I would have expected more. I pay more money for this than on the iphone after all, so I think i can expect more, right? Whatever, the game is still a lot of fun. If you like traditional tower defense games, this might be the game for you.

Solid, Simple, Tower Defense for fans of the genre. This is primarily a fixed path, but flexible tower placement game. Not a maze builder.

After about 30 minutes of play, it appears to just be a bug free, direct port, of the mobile version. That is not necessarily a bad thing. I already own the android version and have beaten it before. Too many mobile to PC ports are buggy right off the start. So far this works fine for me in either full screen or windowed mode. Thumbs up to a smooth mobile to PC transition for the Devs.

It’s a good addition for fans of the genre, especially if you don’t already have it on your tablet or phone. This is best for those that prefer a more 2D tower defense where you focus on upgrades and tower placement like Onslaught, Fieldrunners, iBomber Defense, or Defender’s Quest.

If you prefer a more complex fully 3D tower defense that uses more of the PC’s gaming power I’d recommend checking out Prime World: Defenders, Dungeon Defenders, Sanctum (1 or 2), or Defense Grid.

I enjoy both the simple 2D and complex 3D Tower Defense games. So I was more than happy to add Sentinel 3 to my Steam collection.

This was a solid tower defense game on android. The Steam version suffers from being a lazy port. The controls haven't been properly reworked for PC, the slider where you select your mission is slightly bugged (clearly intended to be swiped with a finger and just badly ported over for mouse), and the graphics are poorly detailed when viewed on a normal sized computer monitor or TV.

I think if these guys had just put in a bit more effort, it could have been a good port. As it is for now, there are better tower defense games to be played instead.

As tower defense goes this is a great example. I wouldn't say it brings anything truly unique to the table, but gameplay is solid, re-playability good, and progression fun. Advised to any TD fan.

A lot of people complain about games that are ports from other systems, but I can't say I have a problem with them so long as they are ported well. While this may be an phone app port, I have to say I'm really enjoying it. Personally I have more problems with console ports (due to poorly implemented keybinding options or only supporting the XBOX controller; Deadpool being a HUGE example of this) than phone app/flash ports, so this was a pleasant surprise when I found how much I'm enjoying a game that was originally a phone app. The only gripe I have about it is the fact that you have to click & drag the towers to the location you want to drop them to, which is a bit of an issue if you accidentally release the button & drop the tower somewhere you don't want to (luckily not all areas in a map are buildable). Other than that, I would probably give this game an overall rating of 8 out of 10. Music would be 9 out of 10, it lost a point for being somewhat repetitive (the music you hear in the trailer is exactly what you hear in the game).
