    A surprise entry for one of my personal favorite games of 2011. Dungeon Defenders is a standout title that anyone who calls themselves a 'gamer' should own.

    Dungeon Defenders is easily AAA material at a quarter of the cost, which we don't see with Arcade titles that often. If you're in the mood for a great strategy RPG then look no further than Dungeon Defenders.

    A few imperfections aside, developer Trendy Entertainment hit the nail on the head with Dungeon Defenders: It's unique, deep, addictive, and cheap.

    And that's probably the best summation of Dungeon Defenders: a great (virtual) place to hang our with your friends.

    A good Live Arcade game and an original take on the tower defense genre, with good variety and an entertaining gameplay, especially if played with friends.

    Dungeon Defenders may not be everyone's cup of tea but for those willing to give it a chance, they will have a rich game that will last quite some time if you intend to experience each class to its fullest. With a hefty price tag of 1200 Microsoft Points, some may be put off but with so many short arcade titles out there these days, it's good to finally see something that will actually be worth your money.

    For what it attempts, the tower-defense aspects are not well explained enough, or implemented simply enough, to raise Dungeon Defenders above the slew of similar games out there.

    Dungeon Defenders may spell the continued revival of a long stagnant Tower Defense genre. Like the beloved Plants vs Zombies, Dungeon Defenders gives us a unique take on Tower Defense. You pick your unique class, level up your characters, upgrade weapons and armor, and distribute points to specialize your character. You can either rely on your characters ability to fight, or your characters ability to build and maintain "towers", or you can go somewhere in between. The story is light and humorous, but falls into place well. Having beaten the game already, I walk away remembering several intense moments, heartache, and triumph. While the game is slightly lacking in content, it is important to remember this is a $15 download release. Furthermore, there have been balancing patches and also plans to add a full campaign expansion to the game sometime in November. This game is a must have for any avid Tower Defense player looking for another pleasant surprise in the genre. Expand

    I'm a huge fan of Trendy Entertainment's criminally underrated Tower Defence/RPG mash-up, Dungeon Defenders. It is pretty good on iOS devices, but it truly shines on 360 (and PS3). Gorgeous Unreal Engine 3 powered graphics, absurdly addictive levelling, and some properly entertaining co-op hack'n slashing all add up to one of my favourite new IP's of the year. But with it not *really* clicking with the iPad's buttonless interface, I was almost foaming at the mouth at the prospect of finally being able to play Dungeon Defenders on the go with the planned Playstation Vita port. However, that has now been canned, and I'm absolutely gutted. Seriously, I'm devastated. That's how much this fabulous little game has me hooked. It isn't perfect, far from it in fact, but I for one utterly adore it. If Trendy are listening, and if it is viable in any possible way, please, PLEASE bring this wonderful game to Vita. In fact, with it's dual screens, it'd work equally well - if not better - on Nintendo's 3DS. Either way, I need the definitive version of Dungeon Defenders in handheld form. Please, someone, anyone, make it so! Expand

    You can try this one as a demo for free and after an hour of fun with that I bought the full game and would of paid more than the $15 they charged. Very addicting and fun game that I've already recommended to a few friends. Now we all have a great time playing this one together. Expand

    When my cousin and I discovered this game, it became a lost weekend as we could not help but play it for as many hours as our bodies would allow us to stay awake for. It is a compelling form of tower defense, that has both action and strategy, with a heavy bonus of loot hoarding as well. All the way up through the game's final boss (before DLC), we enjoyed leveling our weapons, armor, pets, ect. The fun factor drops a heavy amount after a while, as we began to long for more character choices and game play options. The challenge levels were fun but most were either too simple or too difficult, never hitting a crucial balance. We started the DLC campaign but never finished and I wonder if we ever will. Expand

    This game is surprisingly awesome for how cheap it is. It gives loads more content than some $65 games. I'm a pretty big fps fan, and I play Dungeon Defenders more than I play BF3. I've recently got all the achievements in the game and accomplishments, which I was rewarded for in game. I thought this was really cool, and I wish that more games would do this. Even after achieving everything in the game I keep playing it, it has a good bit of replay value. Which is always a huge plus. It is a must buy if your into RPGs or tower defenses, and especially if you're into both. One problem I've started to notice though is that people are starting to mod weapons and items, and I believe that they should have expected that and prepared for it. Some of us like to earn our gear, not be a child and just mod it. Overall this game is good, and loads of fun. Everyone should at least try the trial out, I mean it is free! Expand

    Great game, but the modding is seriously out of hand..
    I probably won't play dungeon defenders again until they release new patches with new
    characters in it. Expand
