It's great because they brought the TD genre to the masses. I've been playing games for many years but had never heard of TD and Fieldrunners was the one that opened my eyes to it. It is only after purchasing Fieldrunners that I went onto getting both Mote-M and Besiegement. If it wasn't for Fieldrunners, I wouldn't have bought either of the two others. If someone had thrust Mote-M on me first before I had played Fieldrunners, I probably would not have bothered with the genre at all. Mote-M is way too complex for the casual first timer to pick up and play. I was totally lost, but because I had so much fun with Fieldrunners, I decided that when I want more from the genre - then I will come back to Mote-M, but for now its off the phone. I still play Besiegment alongside Fieldrunners because it is much more easier to grasp (compared to Mote-M) and offers things that Fieldrunners lack. I don't hate any TD game - they each have their strong points and weeknesses. So many people say that Besiegement and Mote-M etc all offer more gameplay value with many more options compared to Fieldrunners and then go on to say that all Fieldrunners has is going for it is graphics - well i say to those people - then I can say that Fieldrunners has graphics and the others don't - so thats my reason for picking it. People need to stop making the mistake that only options and depth make a great game. For a lot of people, the polished looks and graphics are a plus too and they don't mind not having such advanced options/features because the games look better. Not everyone wants to go so indepth with their TD games. Fieldrunners makes TD games fun and the new update with sound also brings more to the game, plus they are also well under way with v1.2 which will add more towers etc. People talk about Fieldrunners like as if it can never offer anything more, yet the team behind it are busy working at many new options and features which will only make it better. Fieldrunners really did open the genre out to a much bigger audience and it should be given its dues. Yes its not the best most feature enabled game, but its certainly the best looking and for that you can't expect it to also be feature laden.
