    Fieldrunners is a great game that offers more Tower Defense fun, challenges and puzzles. The game looks great and the soundtrack is wonderful. You can drown for hours in this game.

    Fieldrunners 2 makes no real attempts to redefine the tower defense genre, but it delivers a supremely refined modification of the formula that first made the first game so popular four years ago.

    This game is fun at first but goes from being fun to being absurdly hard. The AI for the towers is absolutely deplorable. After completing theThis game is fun at first but goes from being fun to being absurdly hard. The AI for the towers is absolutely deplorable. After completing the first round of maps users must play old maps over to unlock more coins to unlock more powerful towers to get the job done. If I wanted to replay the same old stuff over and over and over and over again, I could play world of warcraft. It's hardly worth the $.99 for the mobile versions and completely ridiculously priced on the PC at a whopping $10 US. There are better tower defense games out there that won't frustrate you to the point of wanting to punch a puppy. Full Review »

    It can be hard to give just one rating to games that are in a divisive genre - in this case, tower defence games. If you've ever been confusedIt can be hard to give just one rating to games that are in a divisive genre - in this case, tower defence games. If you've ever been confused about what it is people enjoy about stopping an inexorable flow of monsters using tower blocks, stop reading now - this game is a paragon of that genre, doing nothing much new, and it's highly unlikely that Fieldrunners 2 will change your mind. However, if you're receptive to TDs, this is definitely one of the best. It's polished to a fine sheen. The balance - that intangible thing that sets the good TDs aside from the great ones - is there. There's very little trace of its legacy on mobile platforms - the graphics are perfectly crisp at 1920x1080 and are colourful and well-animated. Obviously, you won't get Skyrim's sweeping panoramas on a series of one-screen maps, but it does what it needs to very attractively. The interface almost seems designed from scratch for PC (apart from a few very minor niggles, like the Esc button being "quit the game" rather than "deselect selected, or load the menu screen" which seems to be the PC default). On the downside, there's a very limited persistent upgrade system (ie gear you buy between rounds with cash you earn from beating levels). This is something many other TDs and games do, and it's something I personally miss. However, you probably know whether this is equally important to you or not.

    Overall, it's definitely worth the purchase, and given the choice, I'd rather play it on a PC than on either a tablet or a mobile. And I suspect for many purchasers, that will be one of the major questions they'll be considering. At the end of the day, it can't get a 10 - it's not perfect, especially when the gameplay itself is somewhat limited compared to more complex games on the market currrently. But if you've tried and liked TDs in the past, definitely try this one.
