Comment: The near-flawless execution on every level makes the brilliant concepts at the game’s core shine through with perfect clarity. Even if you’ve never played or so much as heard of the original game, Orcs Must Die 2 is worth a place of honor in your collection.

Comment: The developer from Orcs Must Die! is a company Robot Entertainment but the publisher is the company Microsoft Studios. The game was released for Windows in October 2011 and for Xbox just few days after the released on PC. Orcs Must Die! is a strategy video game. Its something like the popular game tower defense , and we all know how popular tower defense game are. But this game got much more possibilities and better graphic and really cool sound.

So like I say, the game is based on the tower defense game. So the point in this game is to defense one or sometimes more Rifts on each level, from a horde of orcs and other different orcs creatures. Every orcs that gets to the rift that you need to defense reduce a point from their rift score and special orc creatures can take much more then one points from the rift score. When the rift score drops to zero the level is lost and you need to
start the lever from begin and defense the rift harder.
The higher level you get the orcs horde are stronger and they are much more waves of different strong orcs. Every level can have four till twelve different waves. But you
need first to defeat the first wave after that you got a short brake till the new wave arrives. To stop the waves you need to use different traps and equipment and use
different spells from your spell book. Traps you can place all over the current level but they cost gold, but yo get after every cleared level gold amount to buy new one. Every killed orc drop a small amount of gold but you need to collect them to get them. The craps got a cool down, so they are used once, then they need a small time to be activated again.Every trap can be destroyed from the orc, and they got his own mana and health but you
can repear them. After you defeate all the waves you will be awarded with skill points, based on your level score till 5 and you get a trap for your spell book too. So build smart traps and use smart your spell book and protect your rift to bet all the orcs.

This game is for all tower defense lovers like me. I recommended it for all players who are bored from mobas and shooters. You dont need a lot of time to play this game and you dont need to lose your nerves. The graphic is really cool, and sound too. There is a interesting story in this game, about wizards, gnolls and orcs that you can follow clearing the different stages, but this game would be cool without the story too. Really popular game and one of my favourite games. I rate this game with a note 7/10. This game is for any ages, young or old, fun for any ages. Hope you like my short game about Orcs must die!

Comment: Orcs Must Die! is a variant of a tower defense game; the player as the War Mage must defend one or more Rifts on each level from an onslaught of orcs and other creatures that emerge from one or more entrances and traverse the level. Generally, each orc that reaches a Rift deducts a point from the starting Rift Score while specialized orcs may take off more points; if the Rift Score drops to zero, the level is lost and the player will have to start again.
The orc armies arrive in increasingly more difficult waves, with each level having between four to twelve waves. In general, waves will begin a few seconds after the player defeats the prior one, but roughly every three waves on all bar Nightmare difficulty, the player is given a break where they can set up traps and initiate the next wave when they are ready.
As the War Mage, the player has the ability to place numerous traps and arm themselves with weapons and equipment to defeat the orcs. The player selects a number of traps and equipment (up to ten) from their current Spellbook; once the player starts placing traps they will be bound to this selection. Traps can be placed on any appropriate surface, but each trap costs in-game currency to place, and traps will have variable costs based on their effectiveness. Traps typically work once and then have a reset period before they will activate again. Such traps include floor, wall, and ceiling traps, and several Guardians that will act on their own accord. The player is given an amount of money to spend on trap placement at the start, and earns more by defeating the orcs and after completing waves; money can also be dropped by certain monsters that must be collected by the player. Traps can be placed at any time, including in combat, and between waves, placed traps can be removed and refunded for their cost. Later, the player gains access to Weavers, who for various costs can boost certain effects on the player or traps placed in the manner of a technology tree; these effects only last for that level.
Once the player initiates a wave, they can run about the level to participate in combat or place additional traps. The player must watch their health and mana used for their weapons but orcs may drop health and mana potions that will replenish these; alternatively the player can heal while in proximity of the Rift. If the player should lose all their health or fall off the level, they will respawn back at the Rift but this will cost them a number of Rift Points.
After defeating the last wave, the player is awarded a number of skulls, up to 5 (or on Apprentice difficulty, limited to two), based on their score (reflecting how many Rift points remain) and the time needed to defeat all the waves. Skulls are used to buy improvements to traps and weapons in the player’s spellbook, such as increasing damage, reducing cost, or making them more effective against the orcs. The player, after completing each level the first time, is also rewarded with a new trap type for their Spellbook they can use in subsequent levels. These improvements remain with the player, so that they may return to earlier levels with these improved traps to earn more skulls.

Comment: 8/10…Two Things I Loved

The constant juggling between action and strategy is quite the rush.P
I love Robot’s art design, and this game is no exception.P
Two Things I Hated
Some levels favour co-op play a little too much.P
Too much recycled content from the first game.P

Comment: If you like killing hordes of orcs with a variety of different hilarious traps and magical weaopns, along side a cheesy story ,this is the game for you!

What you do in this game is…. kill orcs. That’s pretty much it. But! The way you dispose of these foul creatures is the hilarious and captivating part. You can set them on fire, drown them, shoot them, crush them, whatever pleases your tastes.
Overall it’s a really good and incredibly fun game. Worth checking out.

Comment: This production is a very good made defence game. Whole game is based on that we need to def against army of orcs that are just waiting to smash our defence. In front of us we have aour defence area. We can set some traps and other suprising stuff that will stop our enemies. If all traps wont help we will always have our crossbow to kill enemies. For me game is preety nice and good made production. I think this game is very good and can be recommanded. I rate this game 8/10 ๐Ÿ™‚

Comment: In Orcs Must Die, Robot Entertainment has taken the Tower Defence genre to a lighthearted, chaotic and colorful levels with very good results. As you might guess the goal is to kill hordes of orcs, banging on the castle gate. This game is a third-person game so you run on the battlefield and gets to fight when the orcs arrives. Even if your hero has a sword and a crossbow, he has no chance to defeat the hordes without assistance. So you can set up traps. When you are ready, you let them in.

  4. Pretty good tower defense game. Game actually looks nice, especially with the effective use of lighting and the art style. It’s unlike a lot of tower defense games I’ve seen since it’s 3D requiring the player to move around and place traps, but also fight enemies. Overworld can sometimes feel like a labyrinth which can make the game somewhat challenging. Overall, I’d rate this game a 4.25/5.
