    It's ridiculous how much Anomaly has to offer and how natural it feels on touch devices. I don't think it's out of line to call it one of the best games on the market at the moment, as its easily one the visually sharpest, most well-produced, and executed out there.

    The game looks fantastic and the touch controls are quicker and more precise than its PC counterpart's mouse. Its glorious mix of tactics and action is both instantly accessible and deceptively deep. An anomaly indeed.

    Utilizing a highly-stylized interface, intuitive controls, and plenty of tactical goodness, Anomaly brings both the noise and the funk as it ushers in a new era of iOS gaming.

    It's a neat concept that both companies executed wonderfully, from the different units to the touch controls and spectacular graphics that are on par with and arguably better than anything we've seen on Sony's PSP, at least within the tower defense genre.

    Anomaly Warzone Earth is one of the most entertaining and enthralling real-time strategy games on iOS.

    The great level designs, presentation and intuitive touch interface all come together to create a symphony of intense 'edge-of-your-seat' action, that is so engaging it's almost impossible to put down. If this game isn't already on your iPhone and iPad then what the heck are you waiting for?

    While not as beautiful or in-depth as its PC counterpart, Anomaly Warzone Earth for iOS is still a fantastically intriguing take on reversing the roles in a TD game.

    A good-looking, super-immersive game. [Nov 2011, p.94]

    At first glance, Anomaly Warzone Earth feels like an impossible game, but closer inspection reveals that it's merely extremely hard.

    Anomaly Warzone Earth is a good looking strategy game which lets you upgrade and navigate troops through enemy territory.

    Offering a fresh and interesting variation on the tower defense mechanics, Anomaly: Warzone Earth is a compelling and challenging game, indeed one of the best strategies out there on App Store.

    Chillingo did a good job converting Anomaly: Warzone Earth that, in this portable version, mantaining all the distintive tracts of the desktop version.

    The gameplay can be challenging, and it may not look as pretty as its big brother on the PC, but don't count it out. Anomaly: Warzone Earth is a perfect challenge for any strategist, and will have people looking over your shoulder to see what fate you've decided to bestow upon those evil aliens.

    As a game it is by no means revolutionary - but titles don't need to be the new black to be good. Anomaly: Warzone Earth has definitely got enough bells and whistles to keep casual players entertained.
  16. Aug 29, 2011
    What is appealing about Anomaly: Warzone Earth is its value for money. For as little as $1.99 you can have a visually stunning tactical game that's as good as any on PSP or DS. As far as iPhone games go, it's certainly one of the top ten available, without question.

    Not quite sure why this is getting an unqualified 10 / 10- it's not a bad game, but it's hardly going to set the world on fire. The graphics are good, it plays well enough, but full marks? No. The game is overwhelmingly brown, the plot is generic beyond words (i.e. there are bad aliens, and you must stop them), and you don't really get to do that much.

    On the other hand, it's cheap, so if you need another disposable timewaster, go for it.
