Not the Best Laid Plans

24 November 2012

  • Conclusion: Traditional role-playing games have always contrasted from the fantasy era of literature with goblins and orcs. Some of the greatest stories ever told have been through that medieval fantasy of a world riddled with wars between human, orcs, goblins & elves but Of Orcs and Men just stands as another...

Of Orcs and Men's few design issues don't prevent it from being a fun, table-turning take on the age-old conflict.

13 November 2012
  • Summary: Often relegated to the background as evil fodder for the blades of do-gooder humans, orcs don't usually get a chance to shine on center stage. Of Orcs and Men changes that, instead painting greenskins in a very different light while tackling heady topics of genocide and oppression through the eyes...
  • Pros: Gorgeous environments and character design, Lots of depth in the battle system, Dual protagonists add an interesting dynamic to the story and combat
  • Cons: Maps are fairly linear and light on loot, Minor technical glitches mar the vibe

Of Orcs & Men

17 October 2012
  • Excerpt: Cyanide’s role-reversing RPG, Of Orcs & Men , appeared late last week, and I’ve been having a good old orc session. On my journey I have slaughtered a small nation’s worth of treacherous humans, snuck upon and stabbed many more, and sharpened my chat axe on the whetstone of their dialogue options.

  • Conclusion: Once again, for a world that I felt such a strong emotional connection to, it is disappointing to see a lack of polish creeping up into every facet of the game. Of Orcs and Men claims that Goblins mysteriously appeared around a century ago and no Goblin, aside from Styx, speaks or shows any sign of...

OXCGN’s Of Orcs and Men Review

10 February 2014
  • Conclusion: With all of that in mind it would be easy to dismiss this game as bad and simply not play, but I don’t think you should do that. In fact, I think you should play it. Why you ask? Well, I can’t quite put my finger on it.

Game Review: Of Orcs and Men [Xbox 360/PS3/PC]

16 October 2012
  • Excerpt: You can’t just say that Dwarves are actually bearded Norwegians with a strong taste for Black-Briar Mead, or that in reality unicorns are just misunderstood horses that don’t need their fashion sense or sexuality questioned by a judgemental world.
  • Pros: - Heavily storyline driven with a deep plot
  • Cons: - Heavily padded

  • Summary: Apesar de contar com defeitos óbvios, Of Orcs and Men é um daqueles games cujas qualidades são capazes de prender a atenção durante horas. Especialmente no que diz respeito ao sistema de combates, a parceria entre os estúdios Cyanide e Spiders rendeu uma experiência bastante competente e que...

  • Conclusion: a créé un système de combat un peu déroutant au début, mais vous vous y ferez assez rapidement. Ce dernier ressemble au système de combat de . Il s'agit donc de choisir les attaques qui seront exécutées par votre personnage. Vous pouvez en choisir quatre au maximum puis recommencer.
  • Pros: Des personnages principaux géniaux, Des combats corsés, Plutôt joli, Des décors et un environnement qui vous mettent dans l'ambiance
  • Cons: Des musiques pas assez épiques, Une réalisation qui manque de dynamisme
