Charming, addictive but sometimes ruthlessly unforgiving, PixelJunk Monsters 2 has made the transition into 3D almost unscathed. While there is a sense of ‘if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it’ in some instances, it's still a gorgeous, lovingly-crafted and action-packed tower defence game that despite a few annoyances, will delight, entertain and challenge in equal measure.
PixelJunk Monsters 2 brought me one of the most delightful tower defense experiences I’ve ever had. The way you have to think of the towers is better than most. You will have to look around, ensure the space for pick-ups is available and quickly start building your defense force. Even if you can master that side of it, it’s a relentless game that doesn't know when to halt.
Slightly above aI still think there's fun to be had in PixelJunk Monsters 2, and I won't be surprised if Q-Games cleans up some of the minor frustrations. But unless the studio goes out of its way to expand and experiment with new content, I don't see this having much of a legacy. As it stands, it's an okay-at-best tower defense title that treads familiar ground. Coming off the original, that's a huge downgrade.verage or simply inoffensive.
