Reviews for Of Orcs and Men
Lacking polish but still amazingObsessor | May 26, 2015 | See all Obsessor's reviews »
There are two major drawbacks to this game. Camera, and combat(feels a bit chaotic at the beginning). Otherwise, this game is very enjoyable, story rich experience. It's unique because you take on the role of an orc(later on you're joined by a goblin, and move with him through the rest of the game), who's set to kill the emperor of humans. Men are shown as mindless killers, set on conquering, and killing any opposition. Arkail(the orc)and Styx(goblin), are two very interesting characters. Their voice actors are good, and it's a pleasure to listen to the two. In general voice acting is good, but some characters have their ups and downs too. In terms of graphics, the game can be really beautiful. I mean - when you look only at the duo of protagonists. Their models are very detailed. Music in Of Orcs and Men is great too. Overal - 70/100 - not a very high rating, but considering some problems it can't be higher. However I can't recommend that game enough for a fan of story rich RPG games.
Awesome Game,Terrible Fighting SystemMscigniew | Jan. 3, 2014 | See all Mscigniew's reviews »
This game...I loved it and I hated it in the same time. The story and characters are fun and uniqe and makes you really wanna go on.But the fighting system...I hated it.Instead of giving you full control over one of two main characters,the game wants you to give comands(yes you can pause the game and give comands in sequnce)and let me tell you,it doesnt feel right.Which is a shame cause the game is awesome and really deserves attention.Graphics are very nice,the story is amazing,overall atmosphere...top notch.Do I recomend it? That depends,if your mostly about the story than yes buy it,if on the other hand,poor fighting system annoys you than probably dont.
Very fun RPGgforcesa | Jan. 2, 2014 | See all gforcesa's reviews »
This game is so fun.At first i wasn't that much into it and it seemed boring but an hour into the game i really started to like it.The levels are fun to go though and the voice acting is very well done.I think this game is very underrated and i don't know why, people should give this game a chance, it's really something.It's worth the price at the moment with the 66 % off.You won't regret playing this game
Well worth the money and time!RicBac | Oct. 18, 2013 | See all RicBac's reviews »
It's a nice change to be playing an orc and a goblin. And if that wasn't enough, they are really cool characters. This is one of the upsides with the game - the characters. The dialogues are a bit different from what you usually get in a fantasy style game. It's more of "real" with a lot of swearing, something you would find in a game like GTA. The story, characters, graphics are all really good. So the bad stuff? Well the gameplay is a bit repetitive, but it's not bad enough to not play the game.
Very underratedsalogeo | Sept. 18, 2013 | See all salogeo's reviews »
I did not hear about this game anywere it was just by chance that i found it somewhere and wanted to look more into it. I do not own the game myself yet but i have played it a bit it has a very interesting story and its unique because the humans are the bad guys here and a orc and a goblin are actually the good guys here. The soundtrack is amazing the voice acting could be a little better at parts but it wasnt bad or anything. it has great graphics and a beautiful world. The game is very underrated in my eyes it deserves alot more attention
Definitely underratedtheferalwarrior | Aug. 10, 2013 | See all theferalwarrior's reviews »
Amazing game. Truly a hidden gem. What it lacks in cinematic presentation and freedom of exploration, it makes up for with great characters, a beautiful musical score, and a fantastic story. The game has good length and solid voice acting. You will become attached to the protagonists and will want to follow the game through till the end.
Great characters and storyDukePaul | Jan. 5, 2013 | See all DukePaul's reviews »
This is the first game where an orc and a goblin are the main heroes, this game combines battles with a turn-based system like Dragon Age Origins with a lot of skills and abilities. The game is very linear with levels where you need to stealth from the humans and the story is simple but thanks to the great voice acting of the main character it becomes a great story with cool moments. If you want a different RPG with great graphics and atypical characters this game is for you, It is a very refreshing experience for a fantasy game.
