Machinima: "If there was ever any question about 'tower offense' being a viable sub-genre of tower defense, let Anomaly 2 stand as a definitive game to prove its worth. Small tweaks manage to keep the gameplay feeling new despite the majority of it carrying over from the first title. Choosing a side and battling with an opponent in online multiplayer is an entirely new experience that hasn’t been seen in any other game. The satisfaction of multiplayer is reason alone to play the game. And if you enjoyed the first game or tower defense in general, all the better."
