Orcs Must Die 2 is a third person tower defense game with a well integrated
co-op mechanic. To begin with, the music matches to the gameplay seamlessly,
and does a great job of drawing you into the mood of each battle. The story
is brief, but is enough to set the scene for the game.
There are two characters to chose from, and while the selection is limited,
they both have their own play-style that are well balanced in the game.
It centers around using traps, trinkets, weapons, and strategy to prevent the
monsters from reaching the end gate.
The majority of the traps feel useful due to the level design, and it's up to
the player to select which to use based on their preference and how well
they synergize with each other. Each level gets more complex and
intricate in its difficulty as you progress through the game, and it's important
to understand the available traps each level offers, and take advantage of
options like portals that help you travel from point to point more quickly.
There is also a variety of creatures that the player is presented with, and
each one has its own strengths and weaknesses, and I go over this in more
detail in the video. With regards to the creatures and traps, you have to be
aware of what these creatures do, and plan accordingly.
The large variety of levels, weapons, traps, and trinkets really personalizes
the game. The leaderboards offer an incentive to perform well to see how
well you place in comparison to others. The co-op mode also increases the
difficulty by offering more troops. The only issue I really had with this
game was that it offers a level of difficulty only up to a point, and while
there is an endless mode that presents more and more troops, sometimes it
feels a little lacking for the more hardcore players. I would have liked to
see a bit more of a challenge aspect for the more advanced players.
Overall this game was very well done. The different options add to the value
of this game, and I found it entertaining and fun to play. I can easily
recommend this game.

what I cover in my video.
