Excerpt: French developer Cyanide made a splash with its initial forays into the realm of medieval fantasy RPGs when it managed to secure a partnership to create the Game of Thrones RPG. Looking to back up this early effort, Cyanide has followed it up five months later with the release of Of Orcs and Men .
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.

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 and Men claims that Goblins mysteriously appeared around a century ago and no Goblin, aside from Styx, speaks or shows any sign of...
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.
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.
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...
