During the Steam Christmas sale I decided that picking up Dungeon Defenders for really cheap was probably a good investment. This is my first tower defense game and I am very pleasantly surprised! I thought I would share my thoughts on the game after spending way to much time playing it already.

Graphics - The art style is very stylized. Though it looks a little childish with the oversized proportions and funny dances, it performs very well. Even with several hundred monsters and towers firing as fast as they can, I have yet to encounter screen lag. The color palette is aesthetically pleasing and I can honestly say I have no problems with the art direction.

Gameplay - I personally enjoy online play over local single player. I have only played online and mostly with friends. You can have up to four players cooperating on a map at any time. I find talking to them in ventrilo or mumble to be a huge help. Discussing strategy with voice is much faster when you're on a tight time-limit. Leveling up to the maximum level (74) isn't very hard. Difficulty levels are what makes this game shine. Along with my friends we try the hardest maps and challenges on the hardest difficulty. This has kept us busy for weeks!

If you enjoy multiplayer coop strategy I would highly recommend this cheap game for you and your friends.
