Dungeon Defenders Eternity is a solid mashup with a healthy selection of classes, gear, and weapons to customize your character. Creating the best strategy for clearing stages of enemies is fun. Class types are diverse, allowing players to choose the style of play that best suits them. There's also great synergy with these classes as players combine spells, weapons, and abilities to safeguard the area and defeat enemies in the shortest time possible. Joining matches is fairly straightforward, and players have the option to tackle missions alone, although some classes are better suited to solo play than others.

The user interface is this game's weakest feature. It's confusing and challenging. There's also the lack of a proper tutorial to help players get up to speed faster. Players will likely spend a lot of their time just learning the basics of the game and navigating the cumbersome interface before they really start to have fun. If players sink time into Dungeon Defenders Eternity, they'll have a good time; it's just a shame that some of the game design will keep a lot of players away before they start to fully enjoy it.
