"Sanctum 2 improves on the first Sanctum in almost every way, including its robust leveling system and perks, its improved turret management, its visual style, and its customization." - IGN.com
"Planning gets you ahead, but making choices in the heat of the moment is just as important. This dichotomy makes Sanctum 2 some of the most fun I've had with a tower defense game in a long time." - Gameinformer.com
Sanctum 2 is the sequel to the world’s first Tower Defense/FPS hybrid game. Pick from four unique character classes and embark on a mission to protect the oxygen-producing Cores from hordes of deadly aliens who are threatened by their existence. Outfit your character exactly the way you want through the new and extensive customization system. Choose your own loadout of towers, weapons and perks, but choose wisely because you are humanity’s last defense against the unrelenting hordes set out to destroy it.
Sanctum 2 is a new game completely rebuilt from the ground up using community feedback and innovative design to really push the bar of what an independent studio can do. Intense action – Deep strategy
In Sanctum 2, you will utilize elements from multiple gameplay genres to succeed. Construct towers and walls during the building phase before the enemies attack, then jump into the fray and blast everything to pieces in FPS mode. You can progress through the single-player campaign yourself, or play with up to four friends in co-op to discover the secrets of the planet LOEK III and learn the backstory on why the aliens are so intent on destroying the Cores you are sworn to protect.
Building on the success of the original game, Sanctum 2 stands alone as the only true FPS/Tower Defense hybrid. No other title delivers gameplay that seamlessly combines both genres.
Tower Defense – Design complex mazes and build powerful towers to stop the enemies from destroying the Cores.
First-Person Shooter – Don’t just sit back and watch, jump into the action yourself!
Four playable character classes – Each with their own unique strengths, weaknesses and weapons.
Vast Customization System – Pick perks or make the game crazy hard by adding Feats of Strength.
In-game Visual Novel – Unlock a comic-book page for every map you beat to discover the secrets of LOEK III.
Progression System – Increase your rank and unlock new weapons, towers and perks.
4-Player Co-op – Progress through the storyline yourself or team up with other players whenever you want.
Multiplayer + FPS + Tower Defense = Sanctum 2redhawk20854 | Sept. 22, 2014 | See all redhawk20854's reviews »
Sanctum 2 sets out the ambitious goal of combining multiplayer, first person shooter, and tower defense all in one game, building a sequel onto the first game of the same title. And they pretty much nail it.
You start each wave being able to place your upgradable variety of towers and then watch and join in attacking as the wave of enemies swarm in.
My first game I was figuring out the basics of how to play. I was satisfied with the graphics and controls. And then there were two things that positively surprised me: 1. People started joining my game! I hadn't even intended to do multiplayer, and it happened to me. (You can change the default settings to not allow others to join your game if you want.) It was even more fun playing with others (eventually there were four of us), especially after I figured out that you press "t" to talk to the other players (and it does a computer generated voice to read what you type for them). I didn't try joining someone else's game, but it was fun to have others join in my game. 2. You level up as a character, and gain upgraded weapons and towers as you advance. You can then come back to maps that you have already completed with your upgraded abilities, so there is even more replayability if you want to try out some more advanced tower in an earlier map, or if a map is too hard, you can go back to earlier maps, level up, and then try the harder map with your newly gained towers/weapons/perks. You can also make earlier maps more difficult by changing settings (difficulty level and "Feats of Strength"), increasing the replay value even more.

Mix FPS / Tower Defensekawette | June 11, 2014 | See all kawette's reviews »
Well, this game was the first that i achieved 100% because it was quite challenging and motivating to play all the level in solo or coop.
I really enjoyed that game because you need to good at FPS and also use your brain to defeat the enemies. You can also work with other players, beginners or veteran everybody is listen and can play.
For me it's a very good COOP game which can be again more enjoyed by playing with friends.

I was kind of taken aback at the beginning to how different the gameplay was from the first, but after playing the first few missions I am loving it, the changes have definitely made for a better experience, love the humour this game has and coop is great!
Amazing FPS + Tower Defense combination.Furrek | May 19, 2014 | See all Furrek's reviews »
Before I tried this game I thought making a FPS and TD mix game is stupid. How wrong I was... For beginning, it's really a great TD game. I enjoy this genre so much that I probably played every Tower Defense game. First time playing Sanctum 2 feels like just a good TD game. And then, you are also part of this game. Not just as a mouse cursor who place towers on map. You are a character that also fight with next waves of monsters. This makes this game really fresh. Just adding you, a player, as active character to defense the core. It's so simple, but makes this game awesome. Simply the best, right? There are plenty of maps, unlimited waves mode, few characters to choose to play as and SECRETS. Also multiplayer mode to play with friends. In my opinion it's one of the best TD games I ever played and trust me, I played plenty of them.
