Orcs Must Die

 

The ancient home of the orc mob, Dead World has been closed off to the other realms for their protection, but the fears of many have now become true as the orc mob is determined and hell bent on destroying the protective rifts and entering these other...

Orcs Must Die

 

The tower defense genre has always been one of my favorite ways to kill time when gaming. There's something that is just so satisfying about building the perfect line of defense and watching your maze of death take care of everything. While this genre...

Orcs Must Die! Review

 

When Ensemble Studios dissolved, many veteran PC gamers felt that an era had ended. The creators of Age of Empires and Halo Wars had split up to form three separate Dallas-based development teams, and many people blamed Microsoft for the closure of the...

While Orcs Must Die! doesn't really bring forth any entirely new ideas - Sanctum on PC does the FPS-meets-tower-defense thing, too - it does give us a really fresh combination of them, and along with the fantasy setting and legitimately funny jokes and...

Orcs Must Die! - Xbox 360 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

Tower defense games are like McDonald's restaurants: they're everywhere and are all fundamentally the same. Large groups of bad guys seek long convoluted ways to travel from the entrance to the exit, and only the proper placement of varying battlements...

Orcs Must Die! Review

 

With numerous traps, weapons, and an endless supply of one-liners, Orcs Must Die! dispenses death with satisfying variety.

Great selection of traps and weapons ; Unlockable difficulty carries over your previous upgrades ; Different enemy types require tactical thinking ; Lots of replayability

Disappointing lack of multiplayer ; All the stages look the same

Orcs Must Die! presents itself with confident simplicity. Every element in the game has a distinct purpose--from the different traps to the enemies--and you're never bogged down with unnecessary chores. It's a focused game, whose main fault is what it...

Crysis

 

When Crysis debuted on PC in 2007, the rumors of its technological prowess were so pervasive that many actually believed us when we published a Game Infarcer spoof article claiming NASA supercomputers could run the game on its max settings for only 10...

Orcs Must Die Review

 

I won't lie; tower defense has never been my cup of tea for the most part. I find the genre a little tedious for my tastes, but when I first got my hands on Orcs Must Die, I was sold.

Addictive gameplay ; Killing orcs never gets old ; Traps are a blast

Tutorial is lacking ; Multiplayer would have been fun

I won’t lie; tower defense has never been my cup of tea for the most part. I find the genre a little tedious for my tastes, but when I first got my hands on Orcs Must Die, I was sold. Taking the concept of tower defense and tossing in some action...

Orcs Must Die Review

 

From the developer of Halo Wars, Orcs Must Die lets you play dungeon interior decorator and build playgrounds of orcish murder.

Orcs Must Die embellishes your devious side, encouraging you to devise clever ways of fulfilling the command of the title. For the not-so-clever, mowing down invaders with an automatic crossbow is also a great time. Whatever your approach, an orc's...

Orcs Must Die! Review

 

War Mage, what is best in life? To crush the orcs, to see their kobolds driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their ogres!

Fun, unique, and constantly-evolving gameplay; lots of variety; encourages experimentation; great artistic style; good voice acting; (mostly) funny writing; pick-up-and-playable

Mini-map mechanics make it hard to keep track of what's going on; only a handful of orc designs; occasional glitches

Orcs Must Die!

 

I have a confession to make. I should be playing a different game right now, preparing to write a review. But I made a big mistake. I installed the game I have to review next. I installed, and played,Orcs Must Die!. Now I can't concentrate on that...

For a fifteen dollar indie game, Orcs Must Die! has given me more enjoyment than most AAA, sixty dollar titles. I wholeheartedly recommend people buy this game, hardcore and casual crowd alike. Even if you aren't convinced after reading this, try the...
