Orcs Must Die! bietet in meinen Augen nicht nur das ansehnlichere und witzigere, sondern auch das insgesamt rundere Tower Defense-Vergnügen. Der große Nachteil war allerdings, dass es recht kurz und nur allein spielbar war. Dungeon Defenders bietet hingegen nicht nur zahlreiche alternative Spielmodi und Herausforderungen samt spannender Bosskämpfe, sondern auch einen äußerst kurzweiligen Koop-Modus für bis zu vier Spieler. Auch sonst genießt man dank unterschiedlicher Heldenklassen, individueller Charakterentwicklung, anpassbarer Ausrüstung oder dynamischer Figurenwechsel viele Freiheiten, Motivationspfeiler und Experimentiermöglichkeiten. Da kann man sogar die vergleichsweise geringen Bauoptionen pro Spielfigur sowie die dürftige Rahmenhandlung der Kampagne verschmerzen. Kartenfunktion, Kameraführung und Menügestaltung sind hingegen verbesserungswürdig und die deutsche Lokalisierung eine absolute Frechheit.
I can talk all day about how engaging a round of Dungeon Defenders is, but I can't emphasize enough how important it is to find people to play with. Whether it's four-player local or online play – or any mix thereof – you need to play with others. Playing alone is, well, lonely, and results in frustrating and boring gameplay. Mix together a few classes, and the competition of players who can do better and each level becomes a frantic frag fest.

For better or worse, that is what Dungeon Defenders boils down to. If the idea of diving head first into an incredibly deep, challenging, and hard to master tower defence, action RPG sounds like a good time; then you’ll be hard pressed to find anything better. At the same time, if you’re looking for something you can breeze through with a high emphasis on the ‘action’, look elsewhere. I recommend playing with others as it will alleviate many of the problems. That being said, if you aren’t looking for a deep, strategy filled game, friends will only help for so long. Dungeon Defenders isn’t for everyone, but for those that it does fit, it fits like a glove.
Whether you prefer tower games or shooters, RPG or FPS, MMO or single player there really is something for everyone… just remember that in the heat of battle a repaired defense is worth 2 or 3 newly built ones, be it your own or another players… be a mender amigo… and you will enjoy great victory and defend… many… a… dungeon?

Dungeon Defender‘s cartoony style graphics are colourful and quirky and it’s great fun overall. Made by trendy Entertainment…Trendy by name…Trendy by nature.
