Reviews

“Two Worlds II: Castle Defense is a well done strategic game, with Tower Defense elements and a good characters design. A nice choice for fans of the genre.”

“It's kind of surprising how good the game actually looks.”
80 – Gamezebo

“But Two Worlds 2: Castle Defense surprised me – in fact, it’s a better game than the “main” titles in the series. This one sits at the top of the pack in its genre, with great action, great presentation and plenty of meat.”

This is literally the most boring defense game I've ever played. All you do is place troops, then wait. There is very little upgrading to be done. No strategy is involved here at all. Matter of fact, if one of your units does happen to die, all you have to do is wait for the wave to end, and they all come back to life. Steer Clear of this title, even if it's on sale, or hell, even if it's free.

I will recommend it only because I got it for free with the Two Worlds II pack. If I paid for it I would not recommend it unless it was like .49 cents. Simple tower defense. Like maybe a half-hour worth of fun.

It's.... Odd. In total probably will come to about 4-6 hours of mild entertainment so for what I paid I can't really argue. (On sale I got this and the first game for only 50p more than if I had baught just II and it's expansion). It's like a 1990's game and is laughably basic. It's one main guy stood in the middle who can only cast 3 crap spells who surrounds himself with a variety of only 6 troops (two melee, two ranged, a healer and a slower) and fights of a few skeletons and crap.

Mildly entertaining for 5 hours so, for what I paid, who can argue.

first startup the game showed language flags and although i picked the american flag it gave me some other language, italian maby? Started up in a 800x600 window that doesn't capture the mouse or even accurately register when the mouse is over it. My mouse litterally only shows up in the top left corner of the game screen when i need to click a button on the bottom right corner. i completely deleted all local content and reinstalled and it kept the faulty settings. In other words i couldn't even play this game.

It's a simple game. Somewhat pretty time waster.
What really killed me is if you have to redl for any reason a couple times you have to activate by phone calling germany or you can no longer play.

To annoying for not much game.

Please ignore the play time. I have finished the "campaign" as well as all the arena challenges.

This is great, settings and options suck, the whole protection thing was crappy too. Lack of good leaderboard.
Game is pretty solid, but can be easily beat by Using beefed up archers/fire-mages. The damage they do is more powerful than anything the stupid necomancer could do.
Necromancer does not raise fallen enemies. Damn.

6/10 Abandonware, but still good enough to enjoy for a while.

For some reason I thought you don't need much to make a good Tower Defense game. How WRONG I was... or maybe devs just doesn't understand the idea of this genre. Two Worlds II: Castle Defense is BORING. There is not much strategy you can use, Units are dull, skills are rather useless, maps are small and not a well planned for a game in this genre. I'm not sure if there is even any music when you are playing, all I heard were screams. Also, it's very short, with almost no replayability, which is a great loss for a Tower Defense game.
Sure, there is thing or two I liked in this game. Like, teleportation between units. What's more... oops, that's all. There isn't more good thing I can say about this game. Can't recommend it to anyone. Don't start your adventure with TD genre with this game - it will ruin your fun with this genre. I wouldn't even say to try it out to people who are familiar with this genre because of how boring it is. It would be a different if it was some bonus thing for beating Two World II main game. Something you get for free, but for this price? Sorry, it's not even worth full price, half of it, and even one dollar. Two Worlds II: Castle Defense is worst Tower Defense game I have ever played.

I give this game a good rating on the stipulations that 1. You have thoroughly played and enjoyed either or both of the Two Worlds games; 2. You are intuitive to details when thrown to the orcs. This has a good soundtrack (copy pasta from Two Worlds II), and a storyline - however vague - to boot. Sadly, the mechanics aren't the best, and little to no hint as to even what level you should start off in (the Arena is the practice). Give it a try if you're a fan, but if you have any second guesses, wait for a heckuva sale.

I got this game for free from a deal. With that in mind this game is quite fun. Building guard to protect your hero/boss and survive waves is a fun way to play a tower defense game. However, this game is really short and not all to difficult. Do not buy this game unless its on sale. Ten dollars for this 3 hour game is not the way to spend money.

9,99€ on this game is just the company showing that they only really care about money.

This game only has a few different levels with the same mechanics in all of them. In fact this is the first game I have seen that displays all its content on the gallery of sample images on the store page.

I got it in a bundle so I gave it a try. What I wasn't expecting at all is the lack of information about what you have to do. There are so few options that you can figure it out by yourself soon but there's not a single hint about what does each unit, what are they useful for, when should you upgrade them and what does that upgrade too.

I've seen more work and dedication put into similar flash games released online for free.

Simple and short, really no lasting value. 6 units overall, 2 melee, 2 ranged, healer and slower. Place them, upgrade each ones health and attack 5 times, and use the three abilities of your main guy, the one you need to protect. That is it really. There are some resurect and teleport abilities, but they seem pretty useless as I did not need to use them once.

Even counting the "arena" which is the same map 5 times, increasing in difficulty each time, there appears to be only 9 maps overall, even though it seems to suggest at the end that there is more, maybe unfinished? Each map will take you 5-10 mins tops. There is a high score feature that you can upload and see your scores against other players, but it basically asks you to register to do this and I felt uncomfortable putting this in so never completed it.

Feels a lot like a phone or tablet game, even though I can play tower defense games on my phone that keep me busy for weeks, some of them free, all of them cost less than half as much as this.

There is no way in the world you can justify spending the full price on this game, or even on sale. Should have been a little side game that came as part of the package when buying the Two Worlds 2 RPG.

It hits you in the face within 1 minute of the game launching that it wants a ton of personal information as well as product key activation by phone...
Incase you have the misfortune of owning it and haven't played it yet, when it wants all your info, just exit the game and relaunch. Won't ask for the info again. Brilliant developers.

If there is one bright spot in Two Worlds 2 Castle Defense it is the combat animations, but this game is generally very dull in terms of content and actual strategy. The gameplay pretty much consists of placing troops, leveling them up, and waiting to win. There are a handful of spells to cast, but I rarely had to use them. The short 5 map campaign can be finished in just over an hour. This is one of those games you'll play once and likely never touch again.

I had a 90% coupon, so I'am not angry, just disappointed.
You don't need much thinking.
Your towers(soldiers) are moving, so you have to teleport them from time to time to keep the troop together.
Yawn!

I love castle defense games as long as there is some story in them and it is very focused on strategy. This game however, I did not find challenging. I placed my characters, leveled their attributes and fast forwarded. The story is lacking severely from what I've seen without any character connection or goal besides "You're doing this. Do it." I wouldn't recommend it to a friend.

This is the type of game one would find for free on internet gameing websites, like Kongregate or Armour games.
It feels cheap and unfinished, not to mention short on story, levels, and gameplay options

Nutshell version: 2 hours of content only, no matter how slow you try to take it. Either get it for free or pass. What there was of it, was fun, though.

Level 1 was a lot of fun. Do the arena first, btw. It is the tutorial and there's no indication that that's what you should do. So like I said, level 1 was fun. So was 2 and so on. My son and I had a blast debating which guy we should upgrade first. Thing is, 2 hours into it and we did every level plus the arena and finished every bit of content possible. We were both looking at the screen and saying, well, good thing we got it for (basically) free in the bundle on the christmas sale.

Nice concept of a tower defense. Shame it only comes with 5 maps (15 to 20 short waves each), which they dare call a campaign! And 5 challanges.... Content wise not worth the full price by far. I had a 90% off coupon, still wondering if I should have bought at that price.

I really enjoyed this game i got for 90%. Along with the whole Two Wolrds collection for under $10. I DO NOT recommend buying at full price as the game lacks proper content and detail. It's pretty much a slap together tower defence that give you something to do while downloading another game. If yu get the coupon then get it but It's not worth it to pay full price.

Pretty bad quasi-Tower Defense game. That the graphics are basic at best can be forgiven, but the gameplay is dreadfully bland and boring.
Even if (or maybe especially if) you're a fan of the Two World series, skip this one. There are _far_ better TDs out there in the same price range.

(On a side note, the game also has super-annoying online activation where you have to _type_ in your serial key, because copy&paste is disabled o_O )

If you can buy this game for a discounted price, then I recommend it. This game is worth to play; however, it's too short and also lacked of customization. You can play and beat the whole game within 2-4 hours in a normal difficulty.

The gameplay is too simple. There's only 7 different units. Two of those are functional copies of another two. And one is a commander you can't place. All units have basically the same two upgrade options. Each level has a small number of fixed positions you can place your units. Also, it's short, only 6 levels and 5 arena levels. I finished it all in under 3 hours on easy. But due to the simplicity I was still bored. Fast forward wasn't fast enough. And I don't like how fast forward resets to normal speed after each wave. The graphics look nice, nothing fantasic but good.
It's simple, it's short.
