    Still, these are fairly minor quibbles. Cubemen 2 is a competent real-time strategy tower defense game. It’s not terribly exciting, but it is probably the best in the genre on Nintendo platforms.

    It's priced just right as an impulse purchase, and offers so much content that anyone who's ever enjoyed a tower defence game should get a kick out of it.

    For fans of the genre that are happy to master the controls and live with compromises this still represents an attractive option, nevertheless.

    Tower defense games require certain control systems in order to be pleasant on the player’s hands. Unfortunately, Cubemen 2 for the Wii U lacks an adequate control scheme and the near-complete absence of online opponents turns this into a repetitive experience.

    Cubemen 2 is fun, but it's short-lived. The gameplay is relatively shallow (by necessity of the genre more than anything else) and there's little to do once the single-player campaigns are finished, which doesn't take very long.

    Cubemen 2 is a game of strategy and action in real-time strong in content and with a satisfactory design. It has some flaws, especially at the level of interaction and control of the camera. The better part of the game lies in the online experience, if you manage to find other players to play with.
  7. If the offline community ever picks up, we'd expect to slap another 20% on that score. Until then, steer clear. [Christmas 2014, p.95]

    Had heard nothing about the game until seeing the trailer on Nintendo's YouTube channel. Seemed interesting enough, so I bought it despiteHad heard nothing about the game until seeing the trailer on Nintendo's YouTube channel. Seemed interesting enough, so I bought it despite /okay/ reviews.

    Frustrating and confusing honestly. The concept seems interesting enough, and the game feels like it could be fun, but it's just very clunky. Looking back and forth between the GamePad and the screen is frustrating, and the touch screen isn't nearly as comfortable or easy to use as it should be.

    I'd reccomend the PC version, as I feel there will probably be more people playing it for multiplayer, and it'll be easier to control with a mouse/cursor.
