    Another Tower defense game, this time with a Fantasy-Medieval theme: the game has very nice hi-res graphics, with many elements of detailing in the field, partially hand-drawn (the units are very small in comparison with the rest, and look too much with the enemy ones), with lots of effects, but sometimes there are so many things moving in the screen, that the game gets a little confuse.Another Tower defense game, this time with a Fantasy-Medieval theme: the game has very nice hi-res graphics, with many elements of detailing in the field, partially hand-drawn (the units are very small in comparison with the rest, and look too much with the enemy ones), with lots of effects, but sometimes there are so many things moving in the screen, that the game gets a little confuse. The musics are medieval-themed and orchestrated, adequate to the game: the sound and voices are adequate, but not really well done, with many cliche... The gameplay, in essence: you have two castles in the stage, yours and the enemy one, and you must construct defense structures in the field, among the path between the castles, to destroy enemy units (and there are various units, with different characteristics), and defend your castle at the same time (with upgrades like walls): in this game there's a addition - you can send your units to attack and destroy the enemy castle, while they're attacked by his Towers, thus winning the stage. You have in this game various Online Multiplayer modes too.

    Despite the nice graphics, multiplayer aspect, and the offense addition in the classic gameplay of Tower Defense, the game does not have many innovative things to the genre - still it's a nice game to the fans of Tower Defense games. My score: 6,8 / 10,0 .

    I play much Tower Defense games, but this is great, have a good sensation, obviusly have some mistakes, but the game is good, funny, and addictive. Defenders of Ardania is a good title.

    With some changes to the gameplay such as restricting some access to early tower placements, an improved tutorial and less aggressive AI, Defenders of Ardania might have been a more enjoyable experience, but with a better selection of tower defences games available out there it might be worth spending your precious pennies elsewhere.

    Probably not the worst tower defence game anywhere ever, but certainly the worst we recall playing on Live Arcade. [Issue#84, p.104]

    Attempts some RTS elements but misses the mark. [June 2012, p.79]
