Comet Crash is a unique twist on the tower defense genre, with players not only building powerful fortifications, but crafting intricate offensive strategies simultaneously. Sporting competitive local play, nearly 30 missions and superb balancing, Comet Crash
is universally hailed as one of the best of its kind on consoles.
Despite the twist of playing a tower defense game offensively, the player is consistently forced to strategize defensively in the beginning of each level. Initially outnumbered and outclassed, the player is attacked without rhyme or reason from unpredictable waves of enemies. After creating a respectable defense to hold the enemy at bay, the player must build offensive centers where units will spawn. These units will attack the enemy. Whichever side is destroyed first, loses.
Comet Crash has been received by critics very well and has an impressive 86 Metascore
, one of the highest rated PSN games since the service's launch in 2007. Widely noted was the game's quality gameplay yet lack of audiovisual proficiency compared to other Sony-published titles.
