Gamer writes: "In the time between the PC and Xbox 360 version of the Defense Grid: The Awakening was a child, you can conceive and give birth, but it was worth the wait. Not just because the Xbox Live Arcade version includes more content, the price is halved again. In addition, the Xbox 360 version is not inferior to the PC version. The Tower Defense game can be just as easy to drive with the mouse as a controller. And where it chokes on the PC of the games in this genre rediscovered, they are on Xbox Live Arcade nowhere in sight. In short, Defense Grid: The Awakening walks the road to success, with a whole string of aliens behind him."
