Excerpt: When Fountainhead Entertainment announced the adaptation of the mobile phone RPG Orcs and Elves over to the Nintendo DS, it would probably be easily assumed that most weren't overwhelmed with excitement. Mobile phone games in the United States are hardly known for being masterpieces.

Conclusion: So, Orcs and Elves is easy to get into and even easier to use, but is it any fun? For the more committed RPGer, you’ll probably find Orcs and Elves a bit too much like an ‘RPG lite’.

Conclusion: Where Orcs & Elves leaves me is wanting a decent, full-length dungeon-crawling RPG for the DS. What it gives me is the first five or six hours of one that was already beginning to feel a bit repetitive.
