  • Summary: The original Orcs Must Die! certainly lived up to its delightfully murderous name. Stemming the tide of marauding orcish hordes by laying out a complex network of spring-loaded spikes, arrow traps, and other deadly hazards proved a titillating pursuit punctuated by flying limbs and snappy...
  • Pros: Lots of crazy variety with new traps and gizmos, Multiplayer co-op really makes the experience, Two playable characters offer different strategies
  • Cons: Game audio and one-liners are recycled and repetitive

Orcs Must Die 2 Review

G4
2 August 2012
  • Summary: Orcs Must Die! 2 follows the tried and true formula created by developer Robot Entertainment in the first Orcs Must Die iteration: gruesome traps plus hundreds of orcs mixed with a dash of brutality and a pinch of magic equals one fantastic arcade game. Orcs Must Die!
  • Pros: Co-op adds an engaging element, Excellent customization when it comes to traps and weapons, Challenging from start to finish
  • Cons: Not enough tutorials, Story is an afterthought, Feels more like an expansion rather than an entirely new experience

  • Pros: Fun and silly
  • Cons: A little samey

  • Excerpt: You remember that tongue in cheek tower defence third person shooter thing? No, not sanctum, the other one, Orcs Must Die. The one with the obvious reference to Ash from Evil Dead. Well, it's back, and this time, it has co-op and a small rift's worth of mechanical changes and additions.

21 October 2011
  • Excerpt: When Ensemble Studios dissolved, many veteran PC gamers felt that an era had ended. The creators of Age of Empires and Halo Wars had split up to form three separate Dallas-based development teams, and many people blamed Microsoft for the closure of the studio.

  • Summary: An army of orcs waits just beyond the final barricade, but you're ready. Sticky tar pits line the entrance accompanied by wall-mounted, spring-loaded axes. A field of spikes follows, leading to a massive springboard pointed straight at a pit of lava.
  • Pros: Great selection of traps and weapons, Unlockable difficulty carries over your previous upgrades, Different enemy types require tactical thinking, Lots of replayability
  • Cons: Disappointing lack of multiplayer, All the stages look the same
