Not the Best Laid Plans

  • 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 title in the genre.CLASSIC FANTASY RPG

  • 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 intelligence. Yet no one reacts when the Goblin starts slinging pun after sarcastic pun in the middle of conversation. Weapons appear glued to Arkail’s back.

OXCGN’s Of Orcs and Men Review

  • 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. There is something about the game that makes it entertaining and gives it a certain charm that not a lot of other games have. Perhaps it’s because it reminds me of what games used to be like .

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

push-start.co.uk
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. Well Of Orcs and Men just kind of said screw you – we’ll have as many transgender Scandinavian horses as our ale can handle.
  • Pros: - Heavily storyline driven with a deep plot
  • Cons: - Heavily padded

Of Orcs and Men im Test - Storylastiges Rollenspiel mit Gameplay-Schwächen

PCgames.
5 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Orks hielten bislang immer als Bösewichter in Videospielen mit Fantasy-Szenario her - im neuen Rollenspiel der Game of Thrones-Macher von Cyanide und Spiders übernehmen die Grünhäute zur Abwechslung mal den Part der Helden. Das klappt erstaunlich gut, auch wenn der frische Story-Ansatz euch weit besser unterhalten dürfte als die dürftigen Spielmechaniken.

  • Excerpt: Говорят, что на ошибках учатся. Умные люди – на чужих, глупые – на своих. Но, глядя на очередное творение Cyanide Studios , понимаешь, что есть еще и третья категория людей. Те, кто из раза в раз наступают на одни и те же грабли, несмотря на то, что уже набили на одном и том же месте несколько шишек.
