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.
