    Just a simple, easy to get into, fun game that will keep you coming back over and over level after level. Ends too fast!

    I want to start by justifying my score. The game brought me a ton of fun, and that is all you can ask for. The only reason it was not a 10 is because it is too short. There is still somewhat of a repl...

    For a casual game, this game is top notch. Very fun game play and well designed.

    This game is well worth the 10 USD it is asking for. After playing it, I can honestly say I would have paid 20 USD for it (I already preordered Orcs must Die 2, and I never preorder games. ;). I w...

    Orcs Must Die is a really fun tower defense game, but the game really needs co-op.

    Orcs Must Die! is an uproarious take on tower defence with a hearty dash of nasty traps, but it has lingering bugs.

    INTRO: There are few medieval fantasy stories that are willing to describe what orcs would do when they storm a fortress, beyond saying that the defenders have already lost because the orcs have ma...

    Orcs Must Die is simple yet deep, an extremely addictive game that will keep you entertained for plenty of hours.

    Rated on June 29, 2013 by UpInFlames

    Orcs Must Die! is a gleefully addictive tower defense/action game hybrid. It is designed like most tower defense games, you must stop an oncoming horde of enemies before they reach their destination, ...

    Rated on October 12, 2011 by Major_9000

    We all know killing Hordes upon Hordes of Orcs is fun, maybe we didn't know this consciously but we knew it. And now we have a game that proves it to us. I pre-ordered this game from Steam, after ...
