First 10 minutes PC Xbox 360 PS3

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.

What's up?
  • MrWhite

    MrWhite People don't read books. They'd rather listen to some dickhead talk smack about shit they haven't a clue about, despite them claiming they have an education in a certain field. Its enough to convince (1 Day ago)

  • jmd749

    jmd749 Yes, we live in the information age, but most have lost the skill/ability of assimilating and interogating that info. That's why the small misleading sound bites on twitter/facebook is preferred. Sad (1 Day ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite Instead people consult the oracles on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube. All of them with bastardised and warped views of the world driven by decades of repressed bigotry as a hand me down at dinner. (2 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite both on economic systems and a base understanding of the political spectrum. All you need to do is read a couple of books about history or biographies on prominent historical figures and events (2 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite Look at what we've done with it instead. And you're 100% correct about the public now paying more through taxes and tariffs. That would have been obvious to anyone with a modicum of education (2 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite What's alarming with these two things is that on their own, they're two amazing things. The internet should have been a great gift to humanity in driving it forward. (2 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @jmd749: I strongly believe the internet and widespread misinformation tools in the combination of smart phones and social media have done serious damage (2 Days ago)
