Orcs Must Die: Review

I have been playing this single-player game named "Orcs Must Die!", well for starts the title is catchy but it doesn't stop there as the main plot is ridiculous has well.

You start as a young misbehaved student that is forced to defend the masters fortress who after countless years of slaying orcs, slips in a blood stain and hits his head thus dying in a ridiculous fashion. To defend the castle you must protect the Rift from waves of feeble-minded orcs. Now this is the interesting part, you can either kill the orcs by shooting them with a crossbow, slashing them with a sword, blowing them with explosive barrels or arrange a set traps to do the work for you.


Simply put the game is a interesting mix of Evil Genius and Tower-Defense with third person shooter gameplay, the only CON about the game is the lack of multi-player, if they had added a way to COOP it would be on the top of my "best games of 2011"... maybe they will add it in an expansion but either way its a good game and its worth the price.

Sounds pretty good, but tower defence games have been so overused as a platform!
