Our videos of Of Orcs and Men

After two disappointing Game of Thrones titles, Cyanide is back with Of Orcs and Men, a dark fantasy story in which you play the roles of an orc and a goblin who are up against the Empire of men. Provided you don't expect a AAA title, this new RPG will embark you upon a rather enjoyable journey if you are into mature stories. Thanks to pretty nice visuals (aside from the horrible faces of the human characters) and its efficient music score, the game offers quite a nice ride despite some obvious flaws. By no means does it play in the same league as KOTOR or Dragon Age, but it is nonetheless entertaining if you enjoy KOTOR-like combat and you don't mind it being awfully linear. Check out our PC videos and make your own opinion.
Update: One last video added.

A couple of review links for those who might be interested:

To me, the biggest problem with this game is that it should not be the same price as standard AAA titles.

About the game

    asdfg Apparently locking gpu fan speeds at 20%. Glad now I didn't update because I disliked the new UI and was sceptical of the whole crimson drivers second coming attitude. (42 minutes ago)

    Moonwalker @b0vril: The world itself is very believeable and prolly the best it can with this old ass engine. Outside it can definitely look dated, inside is some nice lighting though. (1 Hour ago)

    Megido @b0vril: Maybe not the worst, but the concept is so dumb that it breaks it anyway :) (4 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX @b0vril: There's worse in movies with hundreds of millions of dollars in budget. (12 Hours ago)
  • b0vril
    b0vril really, you'd call that bad cg? I mean I could tell it was cg, but it's effective I think. (13 Hours ago)
