How's Sanctum 2?

#1BogePosted 9/6/2013 11:05:38 AM
Reviews are a bit lower than where I like my games, so that gets me a bit worried.

I play with a tight group of real life friends, so there aren't issues with us competing with each other on stuff in cooperative games. Cooperative is what we like, by the way.

We played a bit of Dungeon Defenders and enjoyed it. How does Sanctum compare? It's on greenmangaming.com for $8.58 with DLC right now.

I glanced over some reviews and it said stuff like selling off your friends towers and it sounded like you collected resources through boxes, which would mean one player could snake more than everyone else. Maybe through grabbing weapons or something?

I haven't played the sequel but Sanctum 1 wasn't very good. Hopefully they improved.

The "Resource Box" thing is gone. It was patched out awhile ago (Before I actually bought the game, TBH..But I did see videos of the boxes). You now all get set amounts of Tower blocks/Resource points at the end of each round. And you can freely trade resources to other players, as well as buy/sell/upgrade other players' towers. It's co-op, so unless your friends are arse hats, then you shouldn't have issues.


I wouldn't compare it to Dungeon Defenders (For one, I kind of dislike D.D.), as it's not about getting loot or long-term grinding for better weapons, perks, and so on. You DO level up in Sanctum 2, which unlocks new weapons, towers, and Perks, but that's the extent of it.

Personally I find the game pretty fun. It keeps a pretty good mix of puzzling and outright firepower (Ie, 20 crappy turrets are just a bunch of crappy turrets; A handful of well placed, upgraded turrets will often outclass them, for a similar cost). And of course, Turrets rarely do 100% of the work, you still need to be active and shooting your guns.

It's different than the first game, but I can't objectively call it better or worse. It's fun, and worth a few bucks. I bought a 4-pack for like $12 off GreenManGaming a few weeks-ish ago, just so I could give a couple keys to friends and play together. Would have been worth the $12 for one copy, IMO.

Cody48 bought the 3 pack for DV8 and myself to play, it was fun. Good time waster for a couple hours.

Though DV8 has to get onto Cody cause Cody doesn't like to upgrade his side of the weapon turrets.

Most people will probably stop reading right here.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.
