Summary: I don't think younger game players will like this. I found it to be bloody and frustrating. I was sorry that I purchased it and resold it without even finishing it. Maybe older players who are into Lord of the Rings and used to this sort of game play will like this game.
Good RPG-Lite-Lite Dungeon Crawl with good writing.

Summary: This review is for the Nintendo DS version of Orcs & Elves - designed by iD Software and published by EA. I give the entire package a 3.5 out of 5 Stars. Fun Factor: 3.5 of 5 Stars. Very simple, but enjoyable and well written. Replay Value: Low. Play 3 Difficulty levels, but nothing of substance changes. Overall: 3.5 of 5 Stars. Great Manual. Fun game. Okay price. Don't believe the marketing hype. Understand this is an RPG-Lite-Lite (redundant on purpose).
Summary: This is really obviously a cell phone game. The visuals are poor even for a GBA title, much less a DS one. That said, if you can get it for $20 it's interesting enough to play through to the end and what else were you gonna do with that $20? Replay value is about nil.
Summary: Vendu au prix fort, j'aurais été moins tendre avec ce jeux. maintenant à ce prix, et si vous êtes amateur de donjon crawler facile (passer son temps à arpenter des labyrinthes et rien d'autre), il devrait vous plaire. Amateur de difficulté tournez-vous plutôt vers la série des "Etrian Odyssey" à la durée de vie beaucoup plus longue mais aussi nettement plus hardcore.
