Orcs Must Die 2

If you really enjoy games like Dungeon Defender and Tower Defense you will enjoy this game!

I will admit to you guys though that I have not played the first game, so I can’t compare the two, but I will be playing the first one sometime this week. I will review the first game and then make another post comparing the two, if there were significant differences!

 

From what I gathered, you play as a battle mage that fought the hordes of Orcs before and prevented them from entering rifts! You find out that the Orc’s Queen (who is playable as well) lost her seat of power and now is there to help you keep the Orcs from the portals.

 

The gameplay is very simple and easy. Both the Battle Mage and the Former Queen have unique abilities and items they can use. I played as the Queen. She had this nify door that when an Orc or Orcs got close it would slam them into the wall or just back. The battle Mage had this Dart wall they could put up.

 

The controls were simples. WSAD to move and mouse and numbers (or clicking if you don’t use a Gaming mouse ) to attack. You hold shift to run ect ect. The norm for most games.

 

Upgrading cost skulls. You get skulls by completing a level successfully. The amount of skulls that you get depend on how hard the level was as well as how well YOU did personally. I find that system to be fair. I don’t think you should be rewarded well if you don’t do a good job. But the skulls aren’t just based on you. If you are playing with another person, they help the skull count as well.

 

Skulls are used to Upgrade armor, weapons and traps.  Upgrading will make handling the hordes of Orcs, Trolls and Yeti’s way more manageable. You can only do so much on your character.

 

The game itself is very simple and easy to use! It takes about one click to do anything from starting a new game and inviting people to play with you! I like not having to search on how to invite people and end up getting frustrated because it doesn’t work or the game doesn’t allow others to join for some odd reason.

 

The graphics are pretty good! They were a bit Cartoonish, but I didn’t mind. I normally like Realish graphic types but I was ok with these. They were neat and well done! The Orcs were unique in their own way. When I think of Orcs, I kind of go back to WoW and picture those Orcs. These Orcs went from Buff to skinny little nothings. It was pretty awesome. They also added Yeti and Trolls to the mix, and they were unique as well! I really liked the characters and the NPCs. Good job guys!!!!

 

I didn’t have many problems with the game. It took my friend and I a few minutes to figure out how the traps worked, where they should be placed and how to do basic movement ect.  I reccomend this game to anyone who is new to gaming in general. It really relies on the most basic controls for  most PC games.

 

I really enjoyed this game! If you want to play, I will post the link below! It is currently $14.99 on the Steam store.  I give this game a 7/10. It was enjoyable but sometimes it got too hard. When you don’t upgrade your traps it makes it harder on you when the Orcs attack. And sometimes you just don’t get enough skulls to do anything.  I ran into that problem a lot. I had to focus on certain traps or we just didn’t do well.

Super Monday Night Combat

I can’t begin to think of where I want to start with this game. It’s just that awesome! I think I will begin with what the game is, that’s a good start.

 

Super Monday Night Combat or Super MNC for short is a third person Shooter meets Dungeon Defenders. You can pick from a few players if you just start the game, and you have the option to purchase new characters, upgrades outfits ect with real money or money you gather and earn as you play. Your goal is to protect your money ball from insane robots that will jump at the opportunity to destroy you.

You get to build turrets as well as shoot the robots. I prefer the assassin they have which is an up close and personal fighter, which can be a bit problematic at times due to the fact some of the robots hurt..really really bad.

The game play is quite simple, and it didn’t take me too long to get the controls down and be a super awesome killer. I didn’t have any lag at all with the settings on high. Another thing I should mention is that it is an Unreal engine game. So you know it has to be awesome =D

 

There are several different types of characters you can pick when you first start. You have a general gunner, a touch tank type gunner, an up close and personal fighter and you also have a healer. Each character has a few different weapons you can choose from as well as some different moves and character specific talents you can choose from. For example, The Assassin has knife for close comabt and a Shuriken Shooter for ranged fighting. For specialites, she has a super jump, a cloaking device, and a smoke cloud. You also get a pretty awesome finishing move if you get the right timing.

 

As the levels go on in the game, it gets progressively harder and harder to keep the ball up in the air and away from robots. We played the game with just 3 people and when we got to the giant chicken round, we didn’t fair too well as there were too many robots for our turrets to handle, and we were all up on a different platform trying to kill the chicken. However, you can invite up to 9 people to play with you or against you, depending on your style. We felt like if we had more people we could have done ok. But all in all it was fun and a good laugh.

The graphics were pretty cool for how simple the game is. The effects for the weapons, when you summon or repair a turret as well as the robots were pretty awesome. I really liked them because they were simple but still pretty awesome. When you lose, your ball explodes into so many coins and a weird guy dances on top of it, taunting you. Haha…Yeah the guy kind of gave me nightmares but anyways!

 

The music is pretty cool too, it’s upbeat and really keeps you in the mood to want to play more. I did have to turn it down a little though because I found that it overpowdered EVERYTHING. I had a hard time hearing my Skype call as well as when a character calling for help.

 

Over all, it was a super fun game and something we will play when we have some time to spare. It has a decent replay value as you can unlock things by just playing the game and earning coins. And another awesome note about the game: TOTALLY FREE!!!!!!!! All you need is a steam account =D How freaking cool!!!!

 

Overall, I give the game 8/10 Lily Points. The game is as pretty as it is difficult and the fact that you can play to unlock is a really cool feature =D If you want to check it out, here’s the link (http://store.steampowered.com/app/104700/)
