"A 3rd person "trap defence" game in which you must slay many orcs with your weapons, magic and a devious set of traps. Best played co-op."

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
Genre: Co-op / Tower defense
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
Personal Rating: "Worth playing"
Traditional Rating: 8/10

"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.

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.

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 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.

I like it. It's great fun to play co-op, but quickly gets too hard to enjoy.

My favorite tower defense game on the market. Seamlessly combines 3rd person arena with tower defense, with a playful, cartoony graphic style that will have you laughing as ragdolls fly through the air. Definitely bring a friend, it's not the same alone. 9/10 (The DLC is awesome but hurts my wallet)

This game is really good in many aspects.

You can use a lot of creativity in which way you choose to demolish those large hoards of orcs. Compared to the predecessor there are some improvements. You can reassign your upgrades and play with friends, for example.

The graphics aren't the best possible but the top notch gameplay is enough to keep you satisfied for a long time.
Levels are so versatile that you need to consider many different factors and constantly adjust your way of playing. That's what I like the most in this game.
