I was a huge fan of Orcs Must Die! 2 when it came out. I knocked a lot of those ornery little buggers off and lost quite a bit more sleep than I had ever intended. The blend of tower defense strategy and third person action really sat well with me, as did the spirit of experimentation. There are just so many delightful traps for proper orc dismemberment, and their upgrades can be a ton of fun.
Frustrating controls get in the way oof what is otherwise an attractive adventure
This would be a solid strategy on its own - but we get Noire and the Hyperdimension girls to boot!
The gameplay is where this title shines bright in the sky
