Review: Orcs Must Die!

10 Oct

The tower defense genre has always been a desktop game to me, something that I would play through an internet browser between classes, and certainly not something I’d consider a full fledged videogame. In my mind, while these games were always fun, there just wasn’t enough content to justify paying for a physical copy of a tower defense game. So when I heard about Orcs Must Die! at PAX East this year, I was a bit skeptical: a tower defense game that combines third-person shooters with RPG elements? Much to my disbelief, Orcs Must Die! is easily the best game I’ve played in the genre, and it brings a handful of welcome additions that make the game entertaining, difficult, and satisfying.


I really enjoyed this game. It’s easily one of the deepest, most engaging tower defense games I’ve ever played.
Full review is over at Machinima.com’s Inside Gaming blog.

There's a sense of great joy seeing arrows shoot from walls into orc skulls.

Laters,
