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.

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

About the game


What's up?
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: I hope the story gets better. The action is not important for me. The story about Protheus eg. Well, that ended quickly. So what was the point? (31 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts It is much more about drama than action, which might turn down some people. But the action is very good in my opinion. (46 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @droezelke: There is, at the surface it is about finding Malcolm's daughter, but underneath it is about all these supernatural characters' stories and how they interact with each other. (47 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: But what is about? It's just some famous fictional characters in 1 show. But there is no story arc. (54 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: It really is kinda sad the problems with that game. Even after that patch it has game breaking bugs and a far from super framerate on X1 in places. (54 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @droezelke: Absolutely!!!!! Episode 7 is my favorite of the 1st season. (1 Hour ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: No, it got better, way better after the v1.01 patch. But the game on disc - which is v1.0 - is really, really bad on both visual and performance. (1 Hour ago)
