Hippo Penny! I'm back with another delightful review for you!

So, I'm diving into Defense Grid 2, the sequel to the popular tower defense game. Now, I know what you're thinking: "Tower defense? Yawn." But trust me, this one's got some bite (or should I say, laser beam?)!

The campaign levels are a great starting point for newbies and veterans alike. You get to experience the thrill of defending your base from waves of alien invaders, all while trying to figure out which towers will be most effective in holding them off. And let me tell you, it's addictive! You'll find yourself thinking, "Just one more level... Just one more wave..."

Now, I know some critics out there are saying this game is just a typical tower defense experience (Gaming Nexus), but I say, who doesn't love a good dose of laser-guided destruction? The Escapist agrees, praising the game's complexity and replay value. IGN even got hooked on it, citing the new variations in gameplay as a major draw.

But what about the story, you ask? Well, let me tell you, it's a riot! A bunch of misfit AI's will have you laughing out loud (Gamer.no). And Vandal agrees, saying this is a good sequel that'll keep fans of the original happy.

Of course, not everyone's a fan. SpazioGames thinks the game is missing new and bold ideas, relying too heavily on community involvement. I get it; we all want innovation in our games. But hey, sometimes it's okay to stick with what works, right?

In conclusion (see what I did there?), Defense Grid 2 is a great addition to the tower defense genre. It's not trying to revolutionize anything, but it delivers on its promises and has plenty of replay value. If you're new to tower defense or just looking for some mindless fun, this one's worth checking out!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some aliens to defend against...
