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."

Defend new fortresses and dwarven mines, laying waste to thousands of orcs and other monsters with a dizzying array of weapons, spells, guardians, traps, and trinkets.

Unlock new defenses and old favorites, upgrade them like never before, and unleash them on the nearest pile of slobbering orcs!

With its fast-paced multiplayer, completely redesigned spellbook, and extensive replayability, I'd say if you enjoyed the original Orcs Must Die! then I'd highly recommend Orcs Must Die! 2. However, OMD2 is shorter than OMD in terms of the campaign and only seems to expand on the original rather than offer a new innovative experience for tower defense fans.There's nothing wrong with the design of the levels or the gameplay in and of themselves. It's just that OMD!2 feels more like a sizeable update complete with co-op integration. It is a good game, though, which manages to live up to its predecessor. Soloing veterans of that game should think very hard if the amendments are enough to buy this sequel at launch.The absence of new levels, no in-game editor, and too close a resemblance with the original title make Orcs Must Die! 2 look more like an expansion pack than a fulfilling sequel.However it's still a thoroughly enjoyable experience that will charm newcomers as well as veterans of the first game.

Orcs Must Die! 2 is a Tower Defense game, where you play as the Sorceress or the Warmage defending the Rifts from relentless waves of Orcs, Trolls and other uglies by setting up traps.
Both heroes have different playstyles, while the huge variety of unlockable traps, upgrades, weapons and perks offer plenty of room of experimenting and finding your unique strategy.


PROS:
- Tons of unlockables: weapons, traps, accessories, costumes etc.
- The CO-OP gameplay is a lot of fun.
- Lot's of variations and solutions for all maps. You can find the tactic that suits you most, thanks to the large arsenal at your disposal.

CONS:
- It's highly recommended to play in CO-OP. Playing alone isn't that much fun.
- Only 2 player CO-OP.

TLDR:
- Do you like Tower Defense games? Do you like CO-OP action? If you do, then Orcs Must Die! is a must-buy!

A great game killing the time with your friends. In second encounter, contained the best elements from the original also added so much new elements to reached the most epic games.

It's a funny and fun tower defense game with a lot of amazing shooter elements that allow you to finish missions in a number of ways. All of the items in the game are upgradable into different paths to get the most powerful sets and allows you to play as your own style. Moreover, now with workshop are available, there's lots of modify items like weapons, character, traps, trinkets you can choose and download. Other than that, control is friendly, graphics is great and smooth.

Furthermore, my friends told me that the co-op multiplayer is also contain a nice upgrade and get more fun from the original game. But sadly I haven't tried yet, they all delete the game already.
