The second one isn't open-ended, though. It seems that way at first, and that would have been awesome (in my opinion), but it's still totally scripted. Enemies don't go to one or the other - they go to one. There may be 2 different exits, but an enemy is programmed to only go to one of them.

So it isn't open-ended. You just have to play through once to figure out which wave goes where. If you know that then it isn't hard and certainly doesn't require co-op.

I 5 skulled each level with each character. I never once played co-op.

The second one gives you open-ended bullshit that works in the enemy's favor, and practically forces you to play co-op.

That was my experience, also.

I loved OMD, but the sequel really didn't work well for me. The first one gives you levels that work in YOUR favor. The second one gives you open-ended bullshit that works in the enemy's favor, and practically forces you to play co-op. While you CAN finish the campaign by yourself, it's usually very dependent on a particular build with little deviation possible. (as opposed to the first one, which you can finish in dozens of different ways.)

I will say this, though: The endless levels of OMD2 are worth the asking price by themselves.

So this is a good game worth playing? Is the sequel better? I got gifted this and was wondering if I should pass it on or not.

They're both really fun little games, some people find the second more difficult but I thought it was fine. I did prefer the level design in the first game though. If you got them for free then go for it, they are great little time wasters that you can easily hop in and out of between shit in real life.

It would be very hard to play 2 then 1, but they're good enough to play both, so start with 1.

I think I put 20 hours into 1, maybe 16, and about 40 into 2. I didn't agree with those saying it was too hard with 1 person. Some of the nightmare levels were rough to 5 skull but nothing was hard to beat. Endless was underwhelming though.

First one is fun. I didn't get to spend as much time as I'd want with the second one (fall game rush), but I agree with some people saying the levels felt like they almost demanded coop, and as single player, they felt overly difficult.

That's just me though...grab the first one on the cheap, and if you like it, the sequel is more of the same (in a good way).

Yep, bought it this morning. Three of the games were on my Steam wishlist, and I had a $5 credit.
