    11 bit studios continues to prove that a little innovation can go a long way. Anomaly 2 capitalizes on what made its predecessor so great by improving on an already unique take on the genre, adding great visuals, and a cleverly crafted competitive multiplayer that tower defense fans will surely enjoy.

    The charm of tower defence games can be limited, but Anomaly 2 steps beyond this threshold to not only give devoted followers something fresh, but also provides those curious about the genre an entry point that will undoubtedly entertain anyone’s fancy for a spell.

    This is a competent PlayStation 4 port for a very good game.

    Anomaly 2 is an exciting proposal in the tower defense genre.

    Anomaly 2's singleplayer portion is basically identical to the first game, so if that was your jam, then by all means, go weapons free. If it wasn't your jam, then maybe the multiplayer will keep you interested.

    An interestingly designed take on the tower defence genre.

    Without a strong multiplayer community behind it though, I would say skip the PS4 release and head straight for PC if you have the means.

    Too much flashy, shaky, distorted camera. Pain for the eyes.
    As to the concept, it's much worse than the original series.

    Don't be fooled by cinematic trailers, this thing is not worth a minute of your time.
