  • Summary: Worst piece of crap that i've ever played in my whole life. The game comes with one nice story (even though it looks like Dragon Age sometimes), but all the pretty story gets lost with the poor voicing, worst gameplay, pitty animations and not a little immersive world. You just go through the one-way all the time, finding enemies here and there, and sometimes you'll find a whole bunch of Worst piece of crap that i've ever played in my whole life.

  • Summary: TL;DR Great story, meh mechanics Purely from a writing standpoint, this is one of the most overlooked gems in the RPG genre. If you love story driven RPGs, I highly suggest considering this game. Tons of games talk about "Mature Themes" but this one really hits that nail on the head, and not just from the adult language (which there's a lot of).

Fun

  • Summary: Very coarse language -- probably what the UK "16" rating is about, which probably cut their sales in half. Otherwise very good believable writing and voice acting. Only a PS3 version is for sale here, as shown on the game box pictured. No minimap but 1-button access to good regular map. Mostly piece-wise linear world. Interesting different style for environment art & its rendering, but no in-game adjustments for gamma or contrast. Difficulty settings: easy+.

  • Summary: My first piece of advice would be just play the game on easy or normal, the game is worth playing but most of the comments about the broken controls, glitches and such are not too far from the truth, whilst they are not actually broken they are pretty bad and to save frustration and get the most out of the game I think easier works better here as there is little to be gained from the My first piece of advice would be just play the game on easy or normal, the game is...

  • Summary: -MY REVIEW WILL HELP UNDECIDED- ~~This game was fun for me this OCTOBER 2013. And I ignored the fact that it was an old game and was wanting to spend some MONEY I HAD ON MY account. And this was worth it for a affordable game.. --Graphics aren't Last of us,Halo,Or Bioshock but does that matter on NON-blockbuster games anyways? NO! With arcade or PSN or downloadable games Graphics and -MY REVIEW WILL HELP UNDECIDED- ~~This game was fun for me this OCTOBER 2013.

  • Summary: I bought this game for my youngest son because he heard that this retail version would work on his PlayStation 3. This game worked like a charm.

  • Summary: So I just sat down and paid a game for 30 minutes called, "of orcs and men"... i'm thinking, this is going to be some well developed, super literary type of game, since it plays on the title of that classic book. before I get into it, let me states some facts: 90% of gamers are men, male gamers are more prone to enjoy violent games, the manlier the characters, the more the male gamers So I just sat down and paid a game for 30 minutes called, "of orcs and men"...

  • Summary: Nice game, if not as broad as the Elder Scrolls or the Dragon Age series. The artwork is good, the classes are more limited than in other RPGs, but it's still a fun game and at the current (Aug 2013) discounted prices, there's no way you can lose. I give it an 8 our of 10, but rated it 10 here because although this game demonstrates that orcs and goblins can sometimes be the good guys, Nice game, if not as broad as the Elder Scrolls or the Dragon Age series.

Of Orcs and Men

  • Summary: The oddity of there being Orcs and Goblins as main playable characters in a game really attracted me to this title. I wanted to know the other side of things rather than being an elf, human, or dwarf. Gameplay is similar to Dragon Age Origins, and SWKOTOR which for me was a plus. This consists of turn based party driven (in this case a duet of an Orc 'tank' and a Goblin 'rogue') strategy, with elements of role play where the main characters talk to NPCs, collect armor,...

Great Game

  • Summary: This is a great Tactical Rpg. I look forward to see more games from CYANIDE studios. This game is on the PSN network to download. But i prefer physical copy. Took a while to ship from the UK to the states. But it was worth it.
