Defense Grid: The Awakening Wins 2008 Game of the Year: Puzzle

01/28/2009 | Source:
Like with most good games, Defense Grid: The Awakening takes only a few
minutes to learn, but much longer to master. The seemingly simple
concept of defending ground against a hoard of aliens using towers is
brilliantly created here, and it’s more than worth the low $20 price
whether you need an afternoon distraction or a title that you can take
time to really master. It may not be a traditional puzzle game, but it’s
the best of the genre in 2008, so the industry better take notice.
