- Summary: In Sanctum 2 players assume the role of one of four elite soldiers, each with their own unique abilities and weapons whose mission is to protect the Cores from hordes of mysterious alien creatures on the human colony planet, LOEK III. Melding the best elements of the tower defense and first-person genres, players are challenged to protect the Cores. In each scenario, players must set up defensive towers to take out waves of attacking enemies and ensure victory. However, Sanctum 2 is not just a game where players sit back and watch the action unfold. Instead they jump into the fray head-on in FPS mode to light up the opposition with a wide array of weapons, some of which you've never seen before in an FPS game.… Expand
Feb 22, 2014Funny, but when read all reviews see quite interesting trend from negative ones - some people don't like it cos it have changes from Sanctum 1 and other don't like cos it's not CoD (O_o)...
OK, now what I think:
First - game changed and it's not Sanctum 1, it's Sanctum 2...
Second - game becomes more active in wave periods, also becomes harder (people say it's bad, but it's really not CoD so yes it must be hard).
Third - more strategic ways to defend cores and move Lumes to...
Fourth - more tactical freedom to chose how to things...
Fifth - more Co-Op depended where all players must play and play good...
Six - more weapons, towers and perks (it gives RPG style system to game and makes it more flexible for good player)...
Seven - after you finish game more options to make game more hard and more interesting to play...
Eight - quite interesting comic story lane...
And nine - characters become alive, sounds, voices in game, in battle makes them more fun to play...
Comparing this games to 100% shooters or to 100% Tower defence games looks very poor try to justify failure, it's Unique game with very good and fun gameplay, but if you don't like hard games or FPS tower defence games you will not like it too, here you must think twice before make decisions, where to place tower or where and why to shoot.
In last period created games it's one of the funnest games for me and finally hard one...… Expand

May 16, 2013"If you are looking for a good tower defence game with FPS elements or a good sequel to the original Sanctum then save your money you won't find it here.
The devs saw fit to create a very poor FPS game with watered down tower defence elements. Amongst the problems you have a limit of 10 towers max per map, resources that aren't shared amongst players and open to ninjas on mp games, towers that do pitiful damage, short matches with small waves and timers on some of the build phases (no pause now).
The reviewer from IGN who wrote that this improves on sanctum 1 in every way needs to be fired because it could not be further from the truth.
The only reason I gave this a 3 is because of the few steps they do take in the right direction such as new characters, perks and graphics. The rest of the game is a major downgrade from its predecessor."
That's EXACTLY it.… Expand
May 15, 2013Sanctum 2 does not play ANYTHING like the original Sanctum does.
Infuriating aspects of Sanctum 2 include, but are not limited to:
You create towers unless you have tower bases in stock, as opposed to being able to create them out of resources
You have to go to the core to obtain your resources and tower bases (which are separate)
What the hell were the developers thinking? This could have been a lot better if the game had resembled the original Sanctum in the first place. In fact, why even come out with a new Sanctum title? The original was pretty much perfect, then THIS came along.… Expand
May 22, 2013Had this gone by a name other than Sanctum, I could just complain about the clunky controls, obnoxious gameplay mechanics, and its unnecessary attempt to adhere to pop shooters and move on, but this is Sanctum 2. It's terrible. If you want a tower defense/fps hybrid, go for the first one. If you want a mouthful of giraffe spunk (I don't), then here it is.… Expand
