Into the valley of death stomped the six hundred, blade walls to the left of them, tar pits to the right of them bubbled and thundered. Theirs not to make reply, theirs not to reason why, theirs but to die and die and die. The titular antagonists of...

If you can get past the War Mage's obnoxious personality and the repetitive and equally obnoxious Gothic metal soundtrack, which isn't asking for much, you'll find endless hours of good times in Orcs Must Die....

You take on the role of the War Mage, a member of the Order with an extremely chiseled chin and a brawny build that looks like something out of a pixar movie. He also has extreme prejudice to Orcs, and with good reason. Orcs are big, dumb creatures...
