Killing orcs is fun. That's it. There's no need to say anything else. Oh, you want more? Ok. Orcs Must Die! is a tower defence game, mixed with a decent dose of third-person shooty action. It's relatively simple in mechanics, and doesn't have much replayability, but it's also crazy addicting for the 30 or so hours most will need to do everything there is to do here. So, what are you waiting for?! Go kill some orcs too!!!

Orcs Must Die is a very welcome surprise. The mix between tower defense and beat 'em up has succeeded thanks to a very careful packaging, a captivating style and a lot of satisfaction in splitting the heads of the green felloni.

An incredibly robust and enjoyable take on the tower defense genre. Tight controls, a plethora of options, and a general fun factor that keeps you coming back again, and again, and again. It is hard not to love this game.

Possibly the best of its genre, Orcs Must Die! is clever enough to keep evolving before it ever gets boring.
