"some levels were verging on tedious"

enjoyed the game but entirely agree on that point

OMD was my first venture into this genre and I really liked it. I also picked up Dungeon Defenders on one of the crazy Steam sales, and somehow sunk over a hundred hours into that! Is Dungeon Defenders well liked around here? I don't recall seeing much talk about it.

It came out at a great time because I was itching for some action-RPG like loot, and Dungeon Defenders has the tower-defense/shooter combo and loot. I also really liked DD because three other folks at work were playing it along with me, and there is some great multi-player class synergy.

I still think it's too soon for a sequel, as the original hasn't even been out for a year. A standalone expansion pack would be more appropriate, especially given that it's the same engine. It's more than just semantics - people expect more from a sequel than a standalone expansion.

That said, I really enjoyed Orcs Must Die. The biggest criticism is that the levels were a bit too different and some were verging on tedious - this was exacerbated by the limited variety of traps. There was a core set of traps that worked very well and the rest were a waste of time. I'll wait for OMD2 to go on sale though, as I simply have too many games at the moment.

This was a great game, can't wait for the sequel. I actually liked the planning stage phase of things but I'm happy to give their changes a shot.

This was one of the very few games I actually finished this year so a sequel coming soon is good news. I can't even think of anything I'd like to see them change - just want more orcs to kill!

Bought it six months ago, and tried it tonight due to this announcement. It sucked me right in. Nice combo of action and strategy. Funny comic art style too.

Orcs is a great little game. Very fun and engrossing. I expected that they would listen to the calls for multiplayer since everyone was asking for it.

Orcs was a game that surprised the hell out of me. I thought it would be a quick 1/2hour to 1 hour try and toss it aside after I bought it on sale for 3.50 but boy was I wrong! I loved it, every bit of it! It's a cool little story, the graphics are decent, the strategy and action is very satisfying. What else can I ask for??? As a result I bought 3 more copies for friends and family and I totally intend to buy OMD2 on release day at full price for my son and I! I couldn't be more happy this game done well enoughto warrant a sequel! Lookin' forward to see more and more Orcs in our future for sure!!!

I was late to the party, so everyone was done with it - maybe get in early on this to get some playtime in...

Bring it on! OMD was a pleasant surprise for me, even though it seriously lacked multiplayer. Looking forward to this.

I enjoyed the first one. I didn't feel like there was much replay value though. On the second play through they seem to have gotten rid of the "planning phase", which was the part I actually enjoyed the most.

Orcs Must Die! was absolutely awesome. If anyone here hasn't tried it, I HIGHLY encourage you to do so. I wasn't expecting much but it ended up being one my favorite games last year. It's just that good.
