Army of Darkness Defense is a rare treat. It couples the cult appeal of a fantastic film with a solid and entertaining game. Fans and non-fans should snap this one up quickly, as it’s free for a limited time!
By the end of it all, fans of the film won't be disappointed with how Backflip Studios handled the IP. They are clearly admirers of the film and were able to create a game based in the AoD world that looks and feels like its inspiration all while including enough Easter eggs to appease fans but not so many that casual players will be turned-off. The RPG elements certainly add a layer of depth, but it's too bad there is no real strategy to using them. At a glance it seemed like Army of Darkness Defense was going to offer more strategy and RPG than the usual castle defense titles, but it ends up being a bit shallow. It's still an entertaining title and you'll likely enjoy your time with it as long as you keep your expectations in check.
Though not as deep as many of its rivals, Army of Darkness: Defense makes sheer playability its focus and serves up an addictive castle defence battler.
This comes back to my initial concern about the ‘Buy’ feature. It’s not an issue if it doesn’t affect game balance but when it does then there is cause for concern. Other than this gripe, it’s a great game. But be warned, there’ll be inevitable frustration if you aren’t prepared to hand over additional money.
If you're one of the many people who enjoy the movie and you're after a fun defense title, there's no reason not to give Army of Darkness Defense a spin; unfortunately it suffers from many of the problems of the genre - notably the need to grind it out to finish the game.
