I played it for a bit, but was rather underwhelmed.
It's straight up tower defence, and so if that appeals to you then you'll probably enjoy the game more than I do. Solo play is quite boring, since the game has been designed from the ground up to encourage co-op play. Overall the lack of incentive to play co-operatively is just not there, though. For example, experince is not shared between the team. There are so many cheats hackers and griefers that it's not worth playing in public pick-up games over open connect (direct IP). All the data is stored locally and is easily accessible. There is another matchmaking service that comes bundled with the game that claims to enforce legitimate play, but lost connections and random drop-outs plague what would otherwise be just a passable gaming experience. If you could convince 3 of your friends to buy and organise to all play together, then that might be somewhat fun. Bleh, disappointed.
