Reviews

IGN: 9/10 - Editors Choice - "A qualified triumph for veterans of the first game and newcomers alike."

Gamespy: 4.5/5 - Editors Choice - "Just as a good sequel should be, Orcs Must Die! 2 is everything I love about the original and more: great art and personality, clever puzzles and green meat-grinding traps, and now with the added bonus of easy-to-use, Steam-powered co-op."

Destructoid: 9.0 - "A year ago, I couldn’t imagine another game mixing tower defense and third-person action as well as Orcs Must Die! Clearly, I was wrong."

MINI REVIEW – ORCS MUST DIE! 2

Details
Developer: Robot Entertainment
Engine: Trinigy's Vision Engine
Genre: Action / Tower defense
Mode: Single-player / Co-op
Release year: 2012

The Good
☺Ability to play with a friend is just so much fun
☺A lot of new maps with new environments
☺Even more traps, weapons, spells, enemies, and more!
☺Survival mode and every week new 'weekly challenges'!
☺The humor still holds up
☺A huge replayability

The Bad
☹Graphics still haven't really changed
☹Feels more like an expansion than a whole new game
☹Levels are not that fun to play in single player as they're clearly designed for two people

The Verdict: "Worth playing"

"I think it's fair to say that this game is better than its predecessor almost in every possible way. Get it now!"

Hmmm....Where to start. This game is so simple and easy to play. I love how I can just pick it up for a quick round anytime or spend a few hours. Co op is great and alot of fun with the right person. I highly recommend this for anyone who wants a good Defense game. Nothing like building a giant killroom and watching hundreds of orcs get torn to shreds.

A highly addictive tower defense game (or more like trap defense game) that - this time - puts a lot of emphasis on cooperative gameplay. Now, our protagonist guy gains a lady assistant in the form of a sorceress. The two battle orcs together, but - of course - the game can be completed just by picking one of the two characters.

A new game mode appears which gives us endless waves - if you thought the story mode was not difficult enough than this is for you. Oh, the name of the mode is endless waves, naturally! Other than that the concept of the sequel remains the same - but now more traps, more enemies and more upgrades to the weapons and traps. This is the usual formula a sequel should follow and as Orc Must Die is an indie game it is commendable.

If you own the first episode you get extra levels in the sequel so it's best to look for a discount and purchase them in one pack. Long-lasting gaming experience and good riddance to thousands of orcs are guaranteed!

Updated review:

Orcs Must Die 2! is a 3rd person game that involves the many slaying of orcs, while either working with a friend or just by yourself along with the aid of the many traps and weapons this game provides.

The levels are unique in every way possible some levels are small and simple while others are huge in terms of how many entry points and also how many different routes the orcs must take.

This game also supports Mods however there is this bug that makes the game null and void so if you try to play it once after hours and hours of using a modded version of the game, sadly all of that will be gone in an instant. I think there is a fix for it but i wouldn't risk it.

The modes that are offered in this game is nothing but plain super awesome, you will lose hours and hours playing with game with either a friend or by yourself.

I recommend such a game if you like killing orcs and seeing orcs getting killed by traps or by the hands of your co-op partner and you.

Nice game to play, easy when you start, but harder when you near the end. All the weapons are good balanced, no overpowered weapons. Sometimes when your playing you hear a charater saying something about a weapon or trap, most of the time something funny. I really like this game, funny and easy gameplay. You can't be serious playing, you are most of the time trying something stupid, also when you are playing with someone else.

One of the must have co-op games - 9/10.
A new twist on the tower defence genre. Set your traps and ready your weapons! Waves of creatures will come at you and you better be prepared for everything. Very strategic, challenging and loads of fun with a mate! I didn't play single player so this review relates purely to co-op.

Orcs must Die 2 is the sequel that fans of the first game (which I also recommend that you play first) were waiting for. It keeps all of the fun aspects of the previous game while adding plenty of new things as well as addressing the criticisms of the original, the largest of which was lack of multiplayer. The game now has full Co-Op, as well as a new character in the form of the Sorceress. The game adds new levels new enemies, and an arsenal of new weapons and traps to massacre the hordes of orcs with, all while keeping the theme of the original, including the FANTASTIC soundtrack. I would say this feels more like an expansion pack than a sequel, but then you also have to take into account that both this game and the original were very cheap in price on release, and both have been on sale countless times since then. A great deal of fun, and if you like the idea of slaughtering huge hordes of orcs with hilarious trap combinations, you NEED to buy this game.

Been playing this game hard for two days! Cant get enough right now. Im sure at some point there is the burnout factor. Must play a co-op with a friend, it makes all the difference.

Very good game, great gameplay, great game with friends. The only thing that I dislike is that if the connection fails during a game on Steam server your game is canceled and you can start over what will please especially when you play 40 or higher attack =)

Orc brain-splittingly, trap-smashingly fun. Just like the original, but filled with even more over-the-top awesome. And with co-op, which makes this a total blast to play. 10/10

Fantastic game. Great play, good design, runs smooth.

(And reminds me more of WC2 than WOW does, which is
partially why I finally cancelled my WOW account to play
more of this game.)

Just check the "Number of Hours played" on this review.
Then check it on other reviews and compare to some other
games.

It's a great value that can hold your interest for quite a while.

Like castle-defense? Enjoy using fling traps to throw orcs off the map? Love stomping orc scum off the face of the Earth? I recommend this game.

Sweet.

Awesome Game with a really fun style. Can get a bit repetitive at times but you will always keep coming back the next day to play. Really satisfying when you kill those Orcs, which is good. Worth the money, although I would reccomend waiting untill it is on sale.

7.9/10

Would Reccomend

Opening caveat: I am not traditionally a person that plays Tower Defense games. This is in fact my first one.

To get right to the point of it...I loved the game. If the name wasn't a dead giveaway, the game has a silly, lighthearted tone to most of it that, when combined with the creative ways you can inflict mass orc genocide (some favorites being hurling them by the packs into bottomless chasms with a well timed gust of wind and launching them ragdoll-style for their afternoon lava bath), leads to plenty of destructive catharsis.

While you can play all the missions single player...the game is at its best (IMO) when played with a friend. Many a map benefits heavily from having a second mind on hand to help combat the games challenges, and with co-op your individual action bar is halved so it emphasizes working and planning together.

The missions also reward player skill with the main currency of the game, skulls. Doing things like beating a mission within a certain time limit...not letting anyone through your defenses...and even "hidden" bonuses like not using mana or not taking damage all reward you with additional skulls after the level. If however you're not that great at pulling things off that way, levels can be farmed repeatedly for unlimited skulls so you aren't punished harshly.

In conclusion...recommended. Get a friend...get some chips...and get killing.
