Robot Entertainment released Orcs Must Die 2, the sequel to the mysteriously named Orcs Must Die for the PC. If you are unfamiliar with the original Orcs Must Die Robot Entertainment combined action and strategy/tower defense game play. Orcs Must Die 2 costs $14.99.
You must defeat enemies like Orcs, Ogres and new creatures like Trolls, Earth Elementals and Bile Bats through a combination of action with spells, swords and cross bows and defensive traps like Arrow Wall panels, spiked floor pads and explosive barrels. You must place the traps in strategic positions in castles to maximize the damage inflected on the approaching hordes of creatures.
This version of Orcs Must Die introduces a Sorceress, a new hero who keeps enemies at bay with mind-control and magic. You can play as the War Mage who looks like he jumped out of a Disney movie. You can also play in the classic co-op mode. We enjoy the action strategy game mechanic but the Orcs and their friends crush us more times than we defeat them. We constantly search for video walk throughs of many parts of the game.
Here’s the Orcs Must Die 2 game description from Robot Entertainment:
Orcs Must Die! 2 begins days after the ending of the original game. With the rifts closed and the magical Order dead, the War Mage finds himself suddenly thrust into a new battle against the mindless orc mob. He has a powerful, if questionable, new companion in the Sorceress, an ex-War Mage responsible for the destruction of the Order.
