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.
Completely Different From The FirstStuman31 | Nov. 29, 2013 | See all Stuman31's reviews »
There are a lot of people who didnt like Sanctum 1. I really enjoyed it. However, no matter which side of the fence you land on for this one I can say it doesnt matter what you think of it because this game is nothing like it. Obviously they are similat in that they are tower defense mixed with FPS, but unlike the first this one is meant to be played COOP. and is a great Coop game. This game almost have more of a feel of if Borderlands had a tower defnese DLC. A lot of fun with friends, solo id say you'd be better off with the original
Sanctum 2 - reviewbalbo79 | Oct. 3, 2013 | See all balbo79's reviews »
Sanctum 2 inserts elements of FPS in the classic formula of a Tower Defense. Each area must be defended by a series of progressive assaults that are composed of two phases, namely placement of resources and real attack. The resources consist of blocks to be placed to lengthen the path of the enemy and towers to be placed in a strategic position and possibly strengthened. When flying enemies, various types of turrets, accessories, multiple nuclei to defend and boss (able to destroy blocks and then create awkward gaps) enter in the field, things get more hectic and difficult. In addition to the campaign, you can then engage in a survival mode where the objective is to resist before the inevitable end. Finally, it is worth mentioning the multiplayer co-op for up to four players. Coordinate and cover in a group during a game is really fun, and the action gets even more frenetic, with dead and respawn, and dozens of enemies swarming on the map.

Sanctum 2 continues forward from Coffee stain's sanctum 1, and adds onto the games base functionality. Now there are multiple characters you can use, new types of enemies and far more tower types and weapons and even abilities.
The game it's self is very fun and very engaging as promotes not only it's strategic turret portion but it's weaponry and unique character aspects. All characters have their own character trait, ontop of being able to possess abilities.
The game however is not flawless as difficulty ramps up fast and it would be nice to know how different turrets affect enemies more so then what it shows. But the game is still nothing short of amazing, the level of strategy you can get down to with this not so classic take on the turret defense genre is very deep. Even moreso from the way turrets can assist or supplement each other.
I will just ontop of everything state it like this, I in no way regretted my purchase and enjoy playing this game quite often, especially with friends.
A great improvement to the first.asiersua | Sept. 25, 2013 | See all asiersua's reviews »
This game, just like the first, is best when played co-op. If you manage to bring some friends, you'll have great fun, if you're alone, you'll end up not playing it. However, the game is great in general, just like the first, but this time you have more weapons to blast your enemies, and new turrets to defend your base. If you haven't tried any of them, you should get this one instead, since the main theme hasn't changed much, but it's a better game overall.

Great game only issue is that it later becomes heavy reliance into the first person asspect whilst not whilst towers become just for mazing
