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.

    GriftGFX EA just cares if they can make money on the platform. Everyone supported the original Wii which was their weakest console in relative terms. (37 minutes ago)

    Tinks even EA is freaked out what Nintendo has up their sleeves. Their statement was like, well we might support it if it's not some wackadoo peripheral (1 Hour ago)

    GrimThorne @scoobs: If MS isn't going with Zen cores then I would hope they would at least go with Pumas. Same architecture, better return on performance (2 Hours ago)

    GrimThorne @Tinks: Same here. There is a demographic for the higher end console if MS and Sony are willing to explore that end of the market (3 Hours ago)
