  • Summary: In this first full-story expansion to the award-winning Defense Grid, GLaDOS, the menacing AI from Valves awesome Portal franchise, guest stars and shakes up the Defense Grid world. Players will battle not only alien hordes, but the deviousness of GLaDOS as she tests the players skills and changes all of the rules that you have come to know. Can you protect the cores in spite of her intrusive testing?

    Defense Grid: The Awakening is a unique spin on tower defense gameplay that will appeal to players of all skill levels. A horde of enemies is invading, and it's up to the player to stop them by strategically building fortification towers around their base. Beautiful environments, spectacular effects, and a dynamic, engaging soundtrack bring the world to life. The controls are intuitive and the gameplay is deep - the special attacks and properties of each tower work together to provide many ways to succeed.
    Key features:

    Defense Grid: You Monster adds:

    - 8 new maps with an all new story.
    - 35 challenge missions.
    - 7 new achievements.
    - Over 15 hours of new gameplay.

    Hey, it's got GLaDOS in it, of course it's good (and difficult).

    I am new to the series and I picked up the Defense Grid package from Steam. It's a solid defense tower game. The package I got has many maps and hours upon hours of playtime. The You Monster DLC is very charming and captures the spirit of Glados. A fair number of maps in the You Monster DLC. The maps get pretty complicated too. Gives plenty of challenge. Glados is constantly changing the rules of the game and adding unexpected challenges. Perhaps it could be frustrating to some, but it kept me on my toes and added some cool variation. It doesn't do anything particularly new with the genre, but it is one of the best defense tower games on the market. Solid gameplay and hours of enjoyment. Expand

    I really liked Defense Grid the Awakening. This installment of the game does not features too many levels, but they provide new and fresh challenges, which are really tough. I got only one Golden Medal (most others were on Bronze), while i beat Awakening on all gold. Very tough, interesting story, fun to play over and try to beat with Gold. Expand
