Ten Ton Hammer (Oct 20, 2011)
If you and some buddies are tower defense fans, you’ve probably found your fix for the foreseeable future in Dungeon Defenders. It may not have the same level of polish and speed as the comparable Orcs Must Die! reviewed last week, but the sheer depth and options for expansion, as well as the obvious multiplayer component will spur it to a much longer lifespan. What if you don’t like tower defense games? Make a Squire, jack up your combat stats and play it like a brawler. Have friends build the tower setup and call out key targets like mages and suicide kobolds on the in-game voice. The possibilities are endless, and that’s why this game is a resounding success.

Dungeon Defenders on PC is an excellent port of the tablet experience, with stunning visuals and interesting gameplay. Those looking for some easy hack and slash matches may be overwhelmed by the erratic difficulty curve.

I was hugely surprised at just how much there is in this game. It looks very simple on the outside, with a low price (currently £9.99) that could often lead people to thinking it’s a small game. But ultimately, Dungeon Defenders offers massive value for money, with possibly hundreds of hours of gameplay for those that want to level up with each of the character classes, and that’s before considering the repeat enjoyment that can be had by playing with friends, or even the special Halloween event that was featured this week which brought even more content to the table. There’s really not another game quite like this on the market – something that can rarely be said about games these days – and not only is it different, but it’s amazingly fun at the same time. The varied components come together to make a game that I’m certain almost anybody could find something they love within.

Dungeon Defenders è un gioco dinamico e ricco di contenuti, al punto che ci si stupisce del basso prezzo di vendita (poco più di dieci euro). A dirla tutta è anche molto più longevo della maggior parte dei titoli tripla A, che costano cinque o sei volte tanto, e la modalità multiplayer non sembra messa lì giusto per allungare il brodo, ma è parte fondamentale dell'esperienza, al punto da far velocemente dimenticare di poter giocare anche in single player. Da notare il supporto costante del team di sviluppo che, forte delle centinaia di migliaia di copie vendute, sta producendo novità a ritmo costante (ad esempio ad Halloween hanno regalato una mappa sfida, dei costumi e dei nuovi oggetti a tema). Che altro vi serve di sapere per capire che si tratta di un ottimo prodotto? Che ve lo venga a spiegare un orco?

In the end, the analogy is this: Long and fluctuating – Dungeon Defenders; short, intense and good looking – Orcs Must Die!. Given that the price tag is more or less the same (which is very low) if you have to choose, please consider the above characteristics. I confess however that, although the game is currently shelved, there are bigger odds for me to go back to Dungeon Defenders than OMD, mostly because I have already exhausted the latter’s content.

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.

IGN (Nov 01, 2011)
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.

Dungeon Defenders est un de ces jeux imparfaits mais tellement addictifs qu'on est prêt à tout leur pardonner, ou presque. Classes déséquilibrées, choix de game design douteux, interface lourdissime et version française à la Google trad. : le jeu de Trendy Entertainment ne manque pas de défauts et pèche clairement au niveau de la finition. Mais ce mélange savamment dosé de tower defense et de jeu de rôle, agrémenté de multiples fonctionnalités qui lui confèrent une véritable richesse, s'avère au final si prenant, notamment dans le cadre de parties multijoueurs, qu'il nous paraît mériter l'investissement, en espérant que son suivi soit équivalent à celui de sa version iOS. Quant à savoir si vous devez ou non le préférer à Orcs Must Die !, tout dépend de ce que vous recherchez : les deux titres ne jouent pas vraiment dans la même cour et ne bénéficient pas des mêmes qualités, mais se révèlent au final parfaitement complémentaires.

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?

I've had a tremendous amount of fun with Dungeon Defenders. Yes there are some glitches but the team has been working hard to iron out theses bugs on what seems like a bi-daily basis. It's great to see this much dedicated support to a game after launch. It's a charming little-big game that's full of challenging adventures that fans and newcomers to the genre will appreciate.

GameStar (Germany) (Oct 28, 2011)
Dungeon Defenders liefert genau das, was mir bei Orcs Must Die! gefehlt hat, nämlich den überfälligen Koop-Modus. Dass dann noch ausgefuchste Rollenspiel-Elemente sowie eine Aufstiegs- und Item-Spirale à la Diablo hinzukommen, macht meine Freude nahezu grenzenlos. Wohlgemerkt »nahezu«.. Für meinen Geschmack kann und sollte ein Koop-Titel Teamwork eindeutiger belohnen. Stattdessen werde ich wiederholt ganz kurz vor dem Sieg aus der Partie gekickt, nur weil jemand die ganze Beute für sich beansprucht. Oder Mitspieler weigern sich, andere Türme als ihre eigenen zu reparieren. Wenn es für Assists und Team-Aktionen Punkte gäbe, wäre das bestimmt anders. Natürlich kann ein Spiel nichts für den Egoismus seiner Spieler, aber es sollte zumindest dafür sorgen, dass die Unterwanderung des Teamwork-Gedankens nicht auch noch belohnt wird. Abgesehen davon kann ich nur festhalten: Wochenlanger Tower-Defense-Spaß für 12 Euro? Im Koop-Modus? Gekauft!

Gameplay (Benelux) (Nov 25, 2011)
Dungeon Defenders pakt het genre weer net iets anders aan, waardoor de multiplayer-fans op hun wenken worden bediend. De vereiste samenwerking kan echter wel eens averechts uitpakken.

Dungeon Defenders s’avère être une agréable surprise. En mélangeant tower defense et jeu de rôle, le titre du studio indé Trendy réussi son pari de renouveler le genre tout en lui offrant une énorme rejouabilité. Il est toutefois très maladroit de proposer autant de contenu payant, surtout pour un jeu qui manque de finitions sur de nombreux points. Reste qu’à seulement 12 euros, on en aura pour son argent, et d’autant plus si l’on est un fan de tower defense.

Dungeon Defenders is a worthwhile addition to your game library with plenty of content for the price. Although the combat falls short, the tower defense gameplay, RPG elements, and the challenging game modes will have fans of tower defense delighted.
