  • Conclusion: My recommendation, play on easy or medium, it doesn't matter either way, attempt hard if you want but you'll hit the same wall and see exactly what i mean, don't expect too much game play wise, just enjoy the story/dialogue/pretty pretty scenery/well written soundtrack which is another thing i forgot to mention, game has a pretty nice and fitting sound track, another positive.

Of Orcs and Men (Xbox360)

  • Excerpt: The world is at war (as usual) but, this war is slightly different. This is a war of genocide, of spite and of hatred. Humankind has expanded its borders as much as they can in the north and are now bent of conquering the southlands. Unfortunately the southlands are the home of the ‘greenskins,’ the Orcs and Goblins, two races which are loathed by the emperor of humankind.

Of Orcs and Men

  • Excerpt: Crouching in a darkened corner of a courtyard, rivulets of rain running down your face, you unsheathe your dagger and tentatively edge forward. Relying on your stealth abilities, you slowly creep up behind the oblivious guard until you’re close enough to perform the grisly task at hand. You spring forward, clasping one hand around his mouth whilst the other draws the serrated blade across his throat, releasing a visceral geyser of claret.

Of Orcs And Men Review (Xbox 360)

ButtonMasher
13 November 2012
  • Excerpt: Everyone secretly loves playing the bad guys. And when it comes to Role Playing Games you can’t get more typically bad than Orcs and Goblins. The festering green skinned hordes who will always be standing in your way, whether you are on a world saving quest or just picking flowers for a local Mage, it’s always the green skins giving you grief.

Of Orcs and Men Review

AusGamers
29 October 2012
  • Conclusion: Adding to this linearity are the many cut-scenes, which would usually have made me lose complete interest in a game with such limiting factors, if it wasn’t for the mild humour and the banter and arguing in each scene. The copious swearing and out of place accents - deep south, camp English, New Yorkese and Scottish - also added to each scene’s entertainment value.
  • Pros: Great looking environments, Humorous cut scene dialogue, Great variety of combat moves, Interesting flip side of a common story
  • Cons: Felt like it was on rails, Limiting combat mechanics, Too many cut-scenes

Test : Of Orcs and Men sur Xbox 360

XBOX MAG
7 February 2014
  • Summary: Après la déception de l’adaptation vidéoludique Game of Thrones : Le Trône de Fer, loin de la qualité de la saga littéraire de R.R. Martin et du show télévisuel bien connu des amateurs de séries, nous espérions que Cyanide se reprendrait avec une production inédite : Of Orcs and Men. Incarner un orc et un gobelin, des races que l’on a souvent l’habitude de trucider dans la joie et la bonne humeur constituait un pitch de départ attrayant.
  • Pros: Scénario intéressant, Des races qu’on n’a pas l’habitude d’incarner, Complémentarité entre les deux héros, Dialogues crus
  • Cons: Gameplay pauvre et archaïque, Techniquement pauvre, Des couloirs, des couloirs et des couloirs, Nombreux bugs, Animation dépassée, Caméra trop proche et souvent aux fraises, Environnements monochromes et peu recherchés

  • Excerpt: <p> Nicht erst seit dem Herrn der Ringe sind sie die Fantasy-Fieslinge Nummer eins: die Orks. Sie schlachten alles in ihrem Wege ab, stecken eure abgeschlagenen K&ouml;pfe auf Pfeiler und zermalmen euch mit blo&szlig;en H&auml;nde

18 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Focus Home Interactive ja Cyanide Studio, kas siinäpä vasta dynaaminen ja toimiva duo, joka osaa luoda pelejä aiheesta kuin aiheesta... Tai sitten ei.
  • Pros: + Peligrafiikka, + Taustamusiikki ja osa ääninäyttelystä, + Pelissä ihan toimiva roolipelisysteemi, + Fantasiahenkistä tunnelmaakin löytyy välillä, + Pelin idea
  • Cons: - Taistelu-välianimaatio-taistelu -jatkumo tylsistyttää, - Kamalan lineaarinen tasosuunnittelu, - Hahmojen jatkuva kiroileminen pilaa tunnelmaa, - Dialogeilla ei ole juuri mitään vaikutusta mihinkään

Of Orcs and Men — не по ролям

gamestar.ru
21 October 2013
  • Excerpt: Французская студия Cyanide очень хочет рассказывать истории. Их предыдущая попытка, ролевая игра по «Игре Престолов», при всех своих недостатках обладала одним ярко выраженным достоинством — там, где требовалось поработать пером, а не кистью или компилятором, чувствуется рука мастера. К работе над Of Orcs and Men был привлечен еще один коллектив. Собственно, Cyanide только подготовила концепт и спродюсировала игру, разработкой занималась студия Spiders.
  • Pros: Интересный сценарий и хорошо прописанные главные персонажи, благодаря которым, несмотря на большой список «против», это все еще хорошая игра.
  • Cons: Слабая боевая система;, Невыразительный внешний вид;, Кишкообразный дизайн уровней;, Малозначимые выборы.
