    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

Really colourful and fun game. The difficulty spykes easily, especially if you want to get high score in high difficulty. Been playing solo and co-op with friends. The game's levels load in seconds, it's really quick, I really like what I've seen so far and I'm looking forward to compete against friends's high scores and to complete all the levels with them to get more points and get all the weapons and traps unlocked. Great game. Expand

Especially the war scenarios require some tactical skill. The game tends to get a bit grindy in the higher levels, but replaying previous maps is still great fun and playing those with new traps can change a lot so it's not a deal breaker. Also it's just great that there is no micro transaction bs in the game. 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
