In many ways, Orcs Must Die! 2 can be seen as an incremental upgrade on the first game. It takes everything featured in the original and turns these things up to 11 on the dial, while also introducing a number of new features that make it not just an...

Our review of the Orcs Must Die! 2 was quite favorable, though I felt like there were some pressing issues that prevente d the game from being outstanding. Needless to say, I was excited to see what the developers had added in the new Fire and Water...

Orcs Must Die is a shining example of what happens when former AAA developers are unshackled from a big publisher and able to do their own thing. The franchise has been developed by Robot Entertainment, a company formed from the ashes of Ensemble Studios...

The first Orcs Must Die! title was well received when it came out just nine months ago. With a blend of solid third person tower defense elements and light hearted orc genocide, developers Robot Entertainment made a well formed and cleverly made...

Sequel the popular XBLA and PC title, Orcs Must Die! 2 returns us to the Dead World. The rifts that were closed in the first title are opening once more, and it's the War Mage's (and new addition Sorceress') job to protect the rebuilt Order from The Mob and its horde of...

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...

Orcs Must Die! 2 ReviewBut how must the Orcs die? My favourite way is by trafficking them through a series of ornate barricades, funnelling them into pits of lava via bouncy springs or dismembering them as they pass much too close to some spinning...

Orcs Must Die 2 offers hours of entertaining gameplay with hugely addictive aspects. If there is any significant fault it is that the game eases the player in too well, keeping the initial levels a little simple and far from action packed as we learn the...

Much like the original game, new trap types are given to you after each successful zone. Unlike the original though, you can now buy specific traps whenever you want using skulls. These skulls are a secondary currency used to buy and upgrade...

I couldn't get enough of Orcs Must Die! last year -- I still count the charming, cartoony, and gleefully gory third-person tower-defense action game as one of 2011's best gems. Just as a good sequel should be, Orcs Must Die! 2 is everything I love...

The overall Orcs Must Die! 2 Review has made it clear that this sequel is a fun game to play. It may sound grating on the audio front due to its cheesy metal soundtracks at the time of battle but still the new contents in the game makes its worth...

Orcs Must Die 2 udvider fornemt etterens repertoire, bl.a. med den hyppigt efterspurgte co-op-funktionalitet. Robot Entertainment, fragmenterne af det nu hedengange Ensemble Studios, debuterede stærkt sidste vinter med XBLA- og pc-udgivelsen Orcs Must...

Viime vuoden loppupuolella ilmestynyt Orcs Must Die oli vuoden iloisimpia peliyllätyksiä. Microsoft-veteraanien työstämä tower defence –peli oli yhdistelmä mainiota audiovisuaalista ilmettä, toimivaa pelattavuutta ja hyvää huumoria.Yksi suunnaton...
