    An action-tower defense that makes "Bigger is Better" its mantra. Same formula, still fully functional, but even more orcs on the screen to beat in the most imaginative ways possible.

    Orcs Must Die! 3 is a hectic, challenging hybrid of action and tower defense that is a lot of fun for anyone looking to kill a ton of orcs.

    Orcs Must Die! 3 is a solid tower defence game with great humour and a nice aesthetic, but the Stadia exclusivity will do it more harm than good.

    Stadia is going to be a dealbreaker for a lot of people though, so that timed exclusivity can't end soon enough.

    It's a throwback rather than an advancement. [Issue#350, p.100]

    While I wouldn’t ever call it a masterpiece, I had hours of fun and laughter as I found the joy in killing orcs. One of the most satisfying things to do was to launch a grenade into a group of low level orcs and watch them explode with orc guts flying all over the place. It was humorous. It was satisfying. It scratched that itch to just sit down and shoot something especially after a bad day. My hope is to see OMD!3 come to the Nintendo Switch and/or Steam where the internet issues I experienced with Stadia won’t be a factor. All the same, if you’re a Stadia Pro member, I do recommend giving it a try. You just might find that you too get a kick out of killing orcs.

    The concept-mixture of action, tower defense and tounge-in-cheek-humour still draws you in. But it lacks depth and convincing improvements.

    The best orcs must die to date and being on stadia has allowed the war scenarios which in itself is worth the price of the game

    Very good game, I had played other games from the series and this version didn't disappoint and is my favorite version. I played over 190Very good game, I had played other games from the series and this version didn't disappoint and is my favorite version. I played over 190 hours on this game and it is very addictive. Plays amazing on Stadia and this is the first time I've seen a platform ramp up the power to improve a game. So many orcs on screen that the experience got smoother the more I played, I believe they increased stadia performance to make it super smooth. You can also buy a DLC to include the flying orcs which add a whole new level to the game (I recommend you buy). Looks great, plays great, very fun game. Also play with online coop and you get to use a stadia only feature that you can see the other players screen which really helps. Can't wait for the new content updates coming soon, I will be definitely be jumping back on it. Expand

If you haven't played Orcs Must Die games in the past you're in for a treat, this is the best one. You also don't need to have played the earlier ones to enjoy this one.

    The war scenarios are great, and the stadia exclusive features like screen connect are worth getting it on Stadia.

    The game is true to it's roots. They didn't try to create something completely different than the other successful orcs must die games, instead they took the formula that worked, added to it.

I found that a certain amount of grinding was required to get enough skulls to buy all of the stuff you need to progress, but it was still fun. I beat the campaign and I have done endless mode a few times. I wish there was a mode where you had all of the machines and infinite time and money to place them and you could turn on and off the flow of orcs as you please. I just want to see what kind of wild contraptions are possible. Expand

Can become quite challenging the further you progress which then requires you to "train" or at least grind a bit previous levels to level up your gear and traps. Definitely recommend to try out and torture few Orcs :-) Expand

It was also a game with the "First on Stadia" label, meaning it was a game with Stadia's temporary exclusivity. Expand

    maybe in 2011 the game would have a chance... but now .... it's just a joke.
