I had a lot of fun with the first Anomaly game, so when Anomaly 2 was announced for PlayStation 4 I was more than ready to review it for the site. The series is referred to as a tower offense game because instead of placing around “towers” to defend from an onslaught of enemies, for this one you take on a group of units making their way through the towers defending the area.
I’m a very big fan of tower defense games, and Anomaly 2 (and it’s predecesor) offers a twist on the regular formula by giving players control of the units that move around each area, destroying towers and completing the set objectives for each level! This was definitely a fun idea, and a “tower offense” game every now and then is definitely a nice change from regular tower defense releases.
