Orcs Must Die! 2 Video Game Review

Full Disclosure: The product sample used in this article has been self-supplied.

Orcs Must Die! 2 is the sequel to - you guessed it - Orcs Must Die!. Once again, you take up the mantle of the War Mage in his quest to gib as many orcs in as many hilarious ways as possible in this third person action game. There are some spoilers in this review with regard to the first game's story. If you haven't yet played the first game... Go do it!

At its heart, OMD2 (as it will be called for the remainder of the review), is a tower defense game. You have points called Rifts. Your goal is to use whatever means are at your disposal to prevent hordes of orcs and other baddies into these Rifts.

Orcs Must Die! 2 Video Game Review

The story goes thusly: after closing the Rifts that allow magic into the world, things start going wrong. People experience drought and sickness where there was none before. Then, the War Mage realizes that magic is somehow slowly returning. But along with magic comes the orc hordes threatening to destroy all humanity. The War Mage must resume his endless quest to defend the Rifts from the monsters, with help from an unexpected quarter.

Why its always the Orcs who have to die? Too much hatred going on towards this endangered species! Time to get out of gran-pa Tolkien's mad house ;)

BTW, Good to see games being reviewed on BMR :)
