    Fieldrunners 2 keeps the best aspects of the original title while borrowing from its brethren to come up with a fantastically fine-tuned challenge that remains rewarding whether you take the easy route or bash your head against its harder challenges.

    Things like the game's staggering variety of levels (endless wave, time challenge, maze-making), total lack of in-app payments, massive scope, and sense of whimsy... you'll experience all of that when you pick up the game.

    Years of waiting have finally paid off with another polished strategic offering that improves upon the original in almost every way.

    We had an absolute blast playing Fieldrunners 2, and recommend the title to any tower-defense fan. Even those who typically shy away from the genre will find a very different, and very enjoyable strategy title here.

    Fieldrunners 2 could be considered as a "more of the same", but it's a good thing if "the same" was the first Fieldrunners. More enemies, weapons and bigger maps mean more fun for all the fans.

    From a value perspective it'll absolutely stretch your three dollars over a dozen hours and many, many boring meetings. It's not to be missed.
  7. Jul 27, 2012
    Not enough is added to the moment to moment gameplay to combat the game's pacing problems, but I wouldn't discourage fans of tower defense from enjoying this colorful, if typical, tower defense romp.

    This game is singleplayer-gameplay wise a BF3 and COD MW3 beater. Epic strategy combined with a lovely Tilted experience. You just want to move faster than you will ever do and also have time left to enjoy how your canons and "lightning-frying plants" crush every opponent on ground or in air. Wat a ride! Expand

    many hours did I try to reach a decent score. Now and then finding out I was playing it all wrong and was already liking it to a sick level. Entire weeks past when I was on the field bombing those asses off! :D Collapse

    Steep learning curve, great towers and upgrading and long, tough and replayable levels, this game does not beat the bet in the genre (Pixeljunk Monsters) but is pretty high up there. Expand
