Very fun game with an interesting take on fantasy story telling. Making Orcs and Goblins seem human makes the story rich. Combat is about as basic as any other queued-based combat system, which if you're new or inexpirenced it can be a quick learn.

Great story, it's original and addictive, the gameplay is not amazing, but it's funny enough to reach the end.

I'd say it's worth playing Of Orcs And Men for the plot, but the full price (30€ here) is simply not acceptable for what the game offers, wait for an heavy discount or a bundle.

The graphics/models/textures all looked pretty good. Not amazing but it’s 4 years old now. The setting/story is interesting. It puts you in the shoes of what is often thought of as the evil mindless villains. You get to see that they have their own motivations and are only mad because of the racism, slavery and cruelty they have suffered at the hands of man. This game is very story driven and one of the things I didn’t like about it is that you play for a couple minutes and then interrupted by a cut-scene sort of thing with dialogue and whatnot. Occasionally you have a little bit of choice on what you want to say, but rarely. Matt asked me at one point how I was liking it as I was about 25 minutes in and I said I had hardly played any yet because it’s all cut-scene. That doesn’t always bother me if it’s the right type of game, but I thought this was more action oriented. Oh well.
Being a story driven game it should be really well written, and this one, I would say is okay. Not great. It has some jokes, some of which are REALLY crude!

But at the same time it’s littered with modern language, particularly swearing, that just seems so jarring to me. I don’t need middle English thee and thou but it sure doesn’t feel like fantasy talk to me, when the language would fit today. So that is a bit of an annoyance. And it is constant, so, if you hate that then I’d avoid this game. Otherwise, the story as a whole is pretty decent, I think. You are on a quest to kill the “evil” [in your mind] emperor. You hire styx the goblin as a guide. Greenskins in general are persecuted, sometimes without reason.

But you still deal with humans plenty. Sometimes to do jobs, sometimes to get help, sometimes they are on your side from the start. You learn stories of other orcs and whatnot. I think styx is the only sentient goblin though.

Voice acting is ok. Sometimes it’s pretty good, sometimes it can be bad. I think it kind of depends on the writing. Apparently this was made from a French studio, so some of it might be translation issues.

The combat is where it really gets…iffy. Instead of, more or less, a hack and slash, you have a hack and slash via commands. When you enter combat, you hit space bar to go into super slow-mo, select a target and assign 4 actions to move through. The Orc is like a tank, kinda, except not a very good one. He can have an offensive stance or a defensive stance, though I haven’t really figured out if there is a difference. Then each stance has different things, like punch to stun, fast basic attack, powerful attack, round swinging attack that hits more than one enemy, etc. Enemies can parry and defend, but it just never seems to work all that well in general. Styx has melee attacks and ranged attacks. I usually stick to ranged if I can, but he usually gets surrounded anyway, and he’s pretty weak. With both guys I try go with a combo of stun and then smash, but it’s never totally clear what does what exactly. Combat is definitely the weakest part of this game. It’s interesting, it just doesn’t seem to be handled really well.
Styx can also hide and do silent takedowns from behind, which is useful until you are spotted.

So, TL:DR – decent game with some issues. Recommended in general, but it’s not for every one.

Wha- who- how the... I've never encountered a game that in almost every way was good. Thoroughly enjoyable, all features at the very least adequate. All except one, that one bad feature completely, utterly destroys the game. That combat system... just... who the bloody hell saw that, played that and thought "yep, that's a functional and enjoyable way to play the game. Let's ship it"?!

The combat system works like this, LB and RB each bring up a radial menu with either offensive or defensive attacks. Key phrase there; "defensive attacks". Even your defence is just a slightly quicker offence. There doesn't seem to be a way to block or dodge anything. It works by giving the two characters orders like a turn-based strategy game but in realtime. Well it slows down time when you open the attack menus but you have so little control over the characters actions during a fight. It clearly should've been a hack'n'slash affair. Everything else about it was alright.

I've played this for about two hours, a bit of it was offline. I've also played Styx and that had some issues with combat but by God it's infinitely better than this.

Boring game: poor controls, bad combat system, dated graphics, bad voice acting, bad writing and snore fest storyline. I got this game during the winter sale and shelled out $6.60 because it looked interesting. Guess i should have been a smarter shopper. Cant refund now but this game will remind me to be more carfeul with my purchases.

Combat consists of a queue system and results in a clunky mess. Enough for me to put down. Shame, because the story seemed like it might have been alright, even if the dialogue and voice acting was a bit off.

It has a good feel to it. I don't know how well it may have stood up at the time on release, but it hints at options and a branching story, giving your a few options to keep the story stong and yourself interested. Combat was challenging enough, stealth was basic but then you whip out the big guy and let carnage rip. I would say that the level design wasn't brilliant, a few nooks and crannies that you seemd to get stuck in and rough edges to the tunnels and streets you run down.
Its lacking in scope and execution to be a masterpiece but I did enjoy my time playing it and satisfied on completion.

No início achei que o game não seria assim tão bom, mas depois me apaixonei, o Orc e o Goblin fazem uma dupla muito divertida de jogar, o modo como foi feito o combate, a história, a evolução dos personagens me prendeu que foi triste ver o fim do game.

There are good, bad and great things about this game.

The bad is the control system (in my opinion) and it's straight forward levels. It takes a bit of time to get used to the control system but once u know it, it is pretty intuitive.

The good is the graphics and the richness of the world. It truly gives u the feeling there is something out there.

The great is the "green". :D I believe it is a great idea to have a game based on Orcs. U can not expect this to be warhammer or world of warcraft (or any other fantasy game), but it is still extremelly amazing. The characters, the plot, the backstories (how things, seemingly unrelated come up later in the game), styx, etc.

Over all when I started the game I thought the lack of openness was going to spoil the game, but it's richness and story came as a great surprise. It was like watching a movie :)

"Yeah, it's not easy bein' a greenskin on this ♥♥♥♥ing continent..."

You're still the good guy.

For a game that uses the word "F*ck" roughly once every other line of dialog, it's surprising just how fitting the name is.
You play the anti-Heroes
Bashing Humans to death
Arguing amongst yourselves
Burning buildings to the ground

But it's okay, you've said ♥♥♥♥ a lot and you're still the good guy!

Though the 10-14-hour story isn't quite as deep as it'd like to be, and the constant treachery of other characters can grow a little exhausting, Of Orcs and Men still manages to provide one of the better role-playing adventure stories I've experienced in a while. With its dark world and characters that seem very human despite their fantastical genus, there should be few people who won't feel satisfied by the plot, as it grows from a story of foolhardy revenge to inspiring rebellion.

Pro's!

+ Beautiful Soundtrack
+ Great Storyline with its twists and turns (although somewhat predictable at times)
+ The ability to switch between characters easily, and play to both their strengths or weaknesses
+ Honest foul language, no censorship here! Along with a good laugh.
+ Stragetic Skill tree (work your characters together, or go for the sole OP skills)
+ Was given a prequel due to its success
+ More than one way to go about missions/storyline (sneaky way or full on bash mode)

Con's!

- The battle system can feel sluggish
- Linear Path throughout the story
- Awkwardly animated and poorly voiced non-main characters

Took about 15 hours to beat on Medium, I recommend this game. Good humor, good game (it seems they may have had a bit of a budget issue but it doesn't show much), and the gameplay is good. As others have mentioned here the combat involves picking different moves from a skill wheel, with no cool downs (some of Styx's moves require Concentration though). Styx Master of Shadows is a prequel to this game, which I also recommend. As for order of playing them I think either one could be played first, I don't think anything would be spoiled playing one before the other.

Overall it feels unique, and I may play it again sometime to pick different dialogue options or try different builds.

This game is far too underated for it's own good. It has an immersive story, likeable characters and a feeling of "Oh snap, i dun effed up" when you don't do the stealth kills right.

Disappointing. Let me start by staying, I love the concept, to play as an orc fighting humans for once, and the developers have created a rich & detailed world with interesting lore, as well as two well-written & interesting main characters. I'll happily read novels set in this world. And the graphics are pretty good.

But everything else about this game is painfully uninspired. Every level is a corridor, and some have long stretches with neither enemies nor points of interest. Loot is rare and frequently boring, the skill-trees are uninteresting, and while combat has a novel design allowing you to switch between the characters & queue up actions, the result delivers neither interesting tactical challenges, or good action sequences. Hard fights often find you leading your enemies in circles while trying to revive your other character - and this is not helped by comically bad hit detection that can see you killed by a swordstrike from 20 feet away.

a very fun and unique story-driven game that never felt held back by their budget.

Sometimes clunky, but never frustrating, the gameplay was unique and took time to master only making it more satisfying when you do,

Story felt fresh, for a fantasy world, and the voice acting and cuscense held my attention and kept me wanting more.

Character models and textures are well crafted and felt like care and love went into them all.

I wish there was a sequel, but at least Styx came back for his own game (also an excellent game).

I always prefer small studio games with more character and life (and flaws) than big budget titles. Keep 'em comin' boys!

It took me a little while to get used to the mechanics of the game - it is based both a realtime and turn based in it's combat. You play the Orc or the Goblin, each with special abilities and ideology. When I first played the game I was all that enthused but it grew on me and now I adore the game. Good story, witty comedy (especially from the goblin Styx). Great companion game to another game called Styx: Master Shadows. Highly recommended. It's only lacking better weapons and and is a bit too linear. Otherwise, a fun rump and has a high replayability.

After really hoping this game would work I cannot giving it a recommendation.

1. combat is extremely repetitive and boring. Pretty much since group 1 until last group you do almost literally the same thing.
2. story is interresting, but spread out so thin, however I liked the whole lore spinoff of this fantasy world.
3. gameplay design is borderline insane. 99% of game counts with 2 character combo, with Arkhail as tanky dude, and Styx as killing glasscanon. But several times, especially in the end, the game splits and allows only one. I literally couldn't finish the sections and move on, even on normal difficulty. Who told the devs it's a good idea should be fired from further level design. My orc doesn't do any damage and my goblin doesn't survive more than 4 hits. It is ridiculous.
4. pacing of the game is completely off, it appears like a huge game, first chapter takes hours, plethora of them, but chapter 3 and 4 together takes barely an hour, it's off putting and seemed rushed.

Of Orcs And Men is a truly unique take on the RPG formula.
In the sense of the setting, at least.

PROS:

+ Arkail and Styx
+ storyline
+ you get to discover and experience the other side of the cliche "good vs evil" paradigm
+ the visuals are pretty

CONS:

- combat mechanics
- the development of characters' statistics and the choice of equipment lack depth

I really enjoy games in which the player is presented with a storyline revolving around unusual protagonists; say, vampires, undead, and in case of Of Orcs And Men, an orc and a goblin.
It's great to see the motivations, aspirations and moral compasses of races most often depicted as "pure evil thoughtless killing machines".

Of Orcs And Men is an exemplar of games which, even though broken from the gameplay perspective, deliver a marvellous gaming experience.

If you are ready to let the gameplay shortcomings slide and would like to know how does it feel to play as greenskin protagonists- do not hesitate.

"Yeah, it's not easy bein' a greenskin on this ♥♥♥♥ing continent..."

I played Of Orcs And Men as preparation for its prequel Styx Master Of Shadows (I heard that Orcs And Men sets up the lore better, i haven't really sat down and played Master Of Shadows yet so we'll see if thats true). I had a surprisingly good time with Orcs And Men. combat took a while to get used to, and it looks god ugly in places but i found myself really getting into the harder fights and laughing at the dialogue between Styx and Arkail.

Verdict: If you like RPGs pick it up on sale it's a solid way to spend a weekend.

Right off, I'm going to say Of Orcs And Men is a great game, and you should absolutely buy and play it. (Provided you enjoy KotoR-esque combat, and don't mind an extremely linear experience.)

The Story, Characters, Combat, and World are all good and interesting, and effective at getting you invested. Plus personally, I seriously enjoyed the non-traditional-ness of the main characters. It's not often you play the Orc(s) and Goblin(s) in an RPG setting.

But of course, no game is perfect. There is one major problem with the game in my opinion.
The very beginning of Of Orcs and Men is bad, real bad. It's slow, and dull, and none of your combat abilities chain together at all. Of Orcs and Men makes a really bad first impression, so bad in fact, that it made me seriously consider dropping the game.
But it gets better, WAY better. I did not regret pushing forward, and chances are, you won't regret it either.

(PS: There are a couple of other minor language-based Cons to the game: (1) The characters like to swear, a lot, and I personally was not a huge fan of it. (2) There is one point in which they drop the 'R'-word for what seems to be just shock factor. Its use makes sense in context, but they don't really explain the context before dropping it on you out of nowhere.)

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

PROS:

GRAPHICS: Gorgeous. It is the right balance, everything goes together and nothing really "sticks out." It's dark and secretive befitting the setting.

STORY: Interestingly attractive. At first, because we are all human, we think we get to play the anti-hero; but then, we realize we are actually playing the role of legitamate heroes, attempting to kill the man enslaving your people (though killing inocents still make you evil lol).

CONS:

LANGUAGE: Quite honestly the languae is immediatly offputting and breaks immersion. Having served in the military I am mainly desensitized to foul language and I understand and agree in some games colorful dialouge can inhance the tension or emotion of the scene. But this is basically a twelve year old trying to sound edgy by dropping the F-bomb every other sentence. It doesn't even flow with the characters themselves. It even happens in casual conversations between characters who seem to be friends. It's as if the voice actors who were hire are so stuck on their automatic swearing they couldn't turn it off just to make a game. Where are the antequated euphamisms, or the fantasy twinge on standard words (Frak anyone?), or even just making it more appropriate to the story? When he refered to Styx as vermin in the Orcish tounge that was great, but this school yard "look at me I give the game a mature rating" edgespeak is just a joke. It isn't offensive, it is annoying.

MECHANICS: As mentioned in several reviews the mechanics are a bit "meh." The near time-stop action que is a great idea, but you feel like your character is always 3 actions behind everyone else. Not to mention there is no command for movement when in this menu.

6/10 Get it on sale.

Of Orcs and Men é um olhar novo sobre um tema batido: o conflito entre homens e orcs.
O enredo trata da ultima tentativa dos greenskins de rechaçar o avanço do domínio dos homens sobre suas terras.
Em jogos comuns veríamos missões onde seria preciso atacar os monstros que estão no caminho do objetivo do rei. Aqui nós somos os monstros e temos que deter os humanos.
Como os greenskins estão em menor numero um ataque frontal não é viável. Através de planos desenvolvidos ao longo das quests vamos traçando uma estratégia para tirar o rei dos humanos do poder e evitar que uma aliança com elfos e anões se forme contra os orcs.
A história do jogo é muito bem elaborada para caber dentro do tempo de jogo que foi apresentado. Existem escolhas importantes para ser feitas nas quests que dão achieves e ajudam a contar a história. Algumas dão a possibilidade de completar quests opcionais.
Senti uma dificuldade enorme quando comecei a jogar, pois não entendi o combate. Cheguei a pensar em desinstalar. Mas como o jogo me atraiu muito decidi estudar o combate novamente. É muito simples, na verdade. E muito inteligente também.
Você tem uma diversidade de skills e vai ganhando e aprimorando mais ao longo do jogo. Durante o combate duas coisas podem acontecer: primeira – apenas assista. Seus personagens vão atacar com a skill padrão da arvore de talentos que estiver. Só faça isso se tiver certeza que pode ganhar o combate assim.
Segunda: é possível programar quatro ações que serão executadas em sequencia. E aí entra a sua estratégia para combinar skills e conseguir tirar vantagem. Por exemplo: pode programar um ataque desestabilizador contra um alvo que usa escudo e na sequencia usar um golpe que ele terá menos chance de defender.
O combate acontece em tempo real, porém quando aperta a barra de espaço, o tempo fica devagar, a ação continua, mas você ganha tempo para programar as suas escolhas. Muito interessante. Então não é preciso ficar clicando durante o combate.
Outra dificuldade que senti foi que os personagens não pulam. Não faz falta nenhuma no jogo, mas todos devem pular em minha opinião. Em todos jogo!
O cenário é linear, você não vai se perder, embora o cenário seja belíssimo e vasto, só é possível seguir por onde se deve seguir.
Os personagens são muito carismáticos e com personalidade. Você não sente que está jogando com um boneco aleatório e sim com Arkail e Styx.
Comprei, joguei e gostei.

Esse é um jogo bem particular para quem quer jogar. Se você está procurando um jogo bem elaborado e prezando pela alta qualidade, ele pode não ser o jogo para você, pois possui uma série de falhas e imperfeições. Se você quer apenas se divertir com um orc enorme limpando tudo o que vê pela frente, então é um jogo que vale a pena.

A história é simples, mas bem interpretada. Você faz parte da elite dos guerreiros de todos os clãs de orcs, os Bloodjaws, é um berserker, e tem como objetivo matar o imperador humano, que está em uma agressividade sem igual em sua ofensiva contra os peles verdes, matando e escravizando seus irmãos. Há também o goblin de suporte, um mercenário pago para te levar com segurança além da muralha do reino dos "pálidos", e que ainda acha que se alguns daqueles caras de pele clara morrerem é um efeito colateral muito agradável. Não são apenas os humanos que você terá como obstáculos, mas também orcs traidores da raça e eventualmente uns goblins descerebrados. O império tem ajuda da Inquisição, que também quer ver o fim dos peles verdes, e aí entra o lado místico da coisa.

Os controles são simples também, e a luta é um misto de tempo real com turnos que me agradou bastante, e viabilizou alguma estratégia enquanto se controla ambos os personagens de forma razoavelmente decente. Os equipamentos são bacaninhas, mas não grande coisa; no primeiro capítulo você consegue alguns que vão te acompanhar até um estágio bem avançado no jogo, lá pro cap. 5.

Não é um jogo que vale muito, mas dá pra se divertir. No mais, ver Arkhail quebrando umas colunas ao melhor estilo Bane quando entra em sua fúria sanguinária dá um certo prazer em já começar com o personagem mais forte do jogo.

Não e não. Não adianta. Talvez para alguns este jogo seja muito bom mesmo, mas eu mesmo não gostei.

A história do jogo na verdade é legal. Eu gostei mesmo. E os personagens são carismaticos.

A gameplay, assim como todo RPG, voce anaça pelo jogo e vai melhorando. O diferencial é que dessa vez voce controla dois personagens. Um ogro que é um guerreiro, e um goblin que é mais para o estilo stealth mesmo. Isso é realmente legal. O que eu não gostei foi o sistema de combate desse jogo. EU nem sei como explicar isso, para falar a verdade, seria mais facil ver um video sobre do que tentar falar, mas vou tentar explicar assim mesmo. O combate é totalmente estratégico, apesar de ser fluido, não é dinamico. Por exemplo, voce chega num inimigo com o personagem, e aperta o botão de um golpe, e enquanto ele esta excutando esse primeiro golpe, voce pode definir previamente antes mesmo de acontecer quais serão as proximas ações. Um exemplo bem pratico, voce define por comando, que vai dar um soco, chutar, empurrar e tomar poção, e isso voce programou antes mesmo do seu personagem chegar no inmigo. E voce também nem se quer sabe o que o inmigo vai fazer para saber a estratégia vai dar certo. Tem gente que adorou esse sistema de combate, eu não gostei mesmo. Mas pode ser que voce goste.

As musicas do jogo, não são muito presentes. Mas são ok.

Os cenários são legais e bonitos. Mas este jogo é linear, então não ha muito o que explorar.

Os gráfico realmente são muito bonitos. É bem rico em detalhes. Eu gostei bastante dos gráficos do jogo.

Eu não presenciei nenhum bug ou glitch.

Particularmente não gostei do sistema de combate deste jogo, é para ser um dos diferenciais do jogo, mas eu não gostei. Porém pode ser que voce goste. Nem todos tem gostos iguais. Mas em todo caso não vou recomendar o jogo. Ainda assim, de uma pesquisada a respeito, pode ser que voce goste.

*sigh* Of Orcs And Men..where do I start ~
http://www.oforcsandmen.com/index.php?lang=en&rub=game (their website might give you more impressions)

To be honest, I probably would have never played this game if Frosty hadn't gifted it to me.
But I am pleased that he did! I was interested a long time in this game, but never felt to buy it - which would have been a huge mistake.

When I got thrown in the world of Orcs And Men I felt a little lost.. the controls are very clunky though the tutorials were helping a lot. Anyway the game is basically about a war between Orcs, Goblins, Wizards, Humans and some other races, and you get to play as the main protagonist Arkhail who's a member of the Bloodjaws after leaving his old clan / family (I wont spoil anything important here). He later on meets the unique Goblin Styx (a lone wolf) who's told to show Arkhail the way to accomplish his mission to make an end to this War.

But everything gets out of control and the two find themselves in a ~10 hour long Journey full of twists and mixed up game play: Styx -rather small and fast - is a master of stealth and you got the option to get 1-3 enemies out of the way quietly before entering a fight. Arkhail on the other hand is big and slow but with powerful attacks when things get real.
So the game play styles of both together were the best possible combination to me in a game like that... though i preferred to play Styx :3

The characters of both could not be more different.. Styx is more grumpy and pessimistic / afraid due big challenges while Arkhail is willing to die for his cause / clan in Honor.
This gets especially clear during several of the amazing cutscenes and dialogues where you got sometimes the option to chose whether Styx or Arkhail answer / choose their own way (for example: Trust someone or Kill stuff -Arkhail / not trust someone and flee - Styx )
I loved this game...it lacks in a lot of things because its very very and I mean VERY linear..not much to explore on 1 path besides the main each mission but it fits the game somehow.. I cant even tell why I like it so much - but what I know, is that the music is AWESOME! it changes during calm situations and fights and its just amazing in my opinion x) the setting is beautiful if you don't care too much about graphics - they are nice and enough for a game like that - the atmosphere created is of course subjective but I can recommend most of the time.

To sum this up.. game play might not be the best but the game plays well, graphics are neither too low nor to high and RPG fans shouldn't bother anyway, Story was interesting though the ending could have been implemented better :D

If you are a fan of linear RPG's with a rather short but Interesting Story + setting this game might be worth your time if you grab it on a sale for ~ 7 bucks

'Styx: Master of the Shadows' is the Prequel to this game and I'll play it now with a Joy!
Hope you didn't have a hard time reading and the review was helpful :)
Have a good day folks!

Of Orcs and Men is third-person action RPG from Cyanide and Spiders, the minds behind Mars: War Logs, Aarklash Legacy, Bound by Flame, Blood Bowl and many others. The closest analogy in design and mechanics to this game would probably be Mass Effect 1.

Turning the genre on it's head, instead of playing the plucky human fighting evil, you play as a duo of “greenskins”, an enormous Orc name Arkail and a small Goblin named Styx fighting the evil human empire intent on wiping you out. Both characters, especially Styx, are endlessly entertaining, Styx the comic foil to Arkail's enduring determined colossus. There is an admirable literary quality here, not just good vs. evil, though the fact that every third line contains the f-word can at times see it return it to baser roots. Both character can take part in conversations in the now standard “Bioware” dialogue wheel and choosing which character talks can result in wildly varying outcomes.

Each main character has three combat stances, Attack/special/defense for Arkail and Melee/special/ranged for Styx. Hitting the right shoulder button on the controller allows you to slow time to a crawl and select your various abilities and queue up to 4 at a time on each character. Both characters have a resource to manage, Styx uses concentration to power his abilities, use it too quickly and he is left with only an auto-attack while it recharges. Arkail however uses rage. Use too many offensive attacks too quickly and he can go berserk, doing huge amounts of damage, but becoming more vulnerable to attack and sometimes even killing Styx! Arkail's defensive stance slows the rage buildup, but he also does less damage.

Arkail and Styx are a duo and they function best when they work together. The best strategy I found was to use Arkail in his defensive stance to group taunt everyone and then stun them while Styx would go around debuffing/poisoning and finishing them off one by one. As you level up each character gets an additional point that can be used to either buy a new ability or upgrade one with the addition of a choice of effect. Later in the game each character can choose an “advanced” class adding 3 further abilities to their special stance tree. There is an impressive number of skills and strategies to use and at higher difficulty levels you will need them!

Maybe the most important strategy is using Styx's stealth ability. Large groups of enemies can be thinned out before a fight by having Styx go into stealth mode and assassinate enemies at the edges. But watch out for dogs, they can smell Styx coming!

The game isn't particularly loot heavy. While each character has a weapon, gloves, top, pants and accessory slot, there are at most 6 or so different armor sets and weapons for each character in the game. You are also able to buy an upgrade for each item and you should do this as early as possible. This is not an easy game and a full set of upgraded gear will provide a noticeable lift in you damage output and survivability.

The graphics are very decent, though maybe not as sharp as they could be, but the character models of the two mains are fantastic, Styx especially. The voice acting is patchy, Arkail and Styx are great so are most of the Orc's but some of the humans are pretty average. The game also has a very nice classical score though at times the mood of the music seemed a little out with what was going on on screen.

While not particularly long, 12 hours give or take, the ambition and new experience it offers makes this a very worthy addition to the Action RPG genre and Styx apparently has his own spin-off game coming soon!

8.5/10

It is certainly... interesting.

This game comes with some unique and very intruiging aspects, but also a considerable amount of downfalls.
The gameplay is solid, but at times somewhat inadequate. The storyline is pretty good, but could have been better. The characters have a lot of potential, but don't really grow as much as they could have. The graphics are excellent, but the facial animation is often off-key. The voice acting is at times very good, and at times not so much.

All that said, I had good fun with the game. In the end, that's what's most important, no?

Should you buy it? If it's on discount, go for it. You might just find yourself pleasantly surprised at the unortodox lead characters and the different take on the classic fantasy settings. It is not everyone's cup of tea, but I think that past its flaws, it is an experience worth having.

Clearly an underdog, this game is better than it seems. The main attraction is the story and original setting, playing as orc and goblin against the humain oppression.

PROS

- Overall good story and dialogues
- Over 16 hours of gameplay if you don't play on easy
- Overall nice graphics

CONS

- Uninteresting items
- Average combat system, interesting on paper but should have been better for a game focused on combat like this one
- Some not too serious technical problems like the camera not cooperating sometimes

REVIEW

This looked like a barely average game at first. But I was pleasantly surprised. The story is well tied together, the characters are generally well written and well fleshed out, and even the dialogues and exchanges between characters are well done.

The main downside of this game is that for something so axed on combats, it should have had more items, more skill involved in combat rather than using the mmo system of selecting targets and queuing actions, and the combat itself should have been better tailored to feel more authentic and fast paced. Don't get me wrong, the combat is decent, it just could have been better.

It also lacks depth in some aspects, like for the character stats for example. There doesn't seem an alternative to putting all points into stamina on orc and all on damage for the goblin, the harder difficulty you go the more obvious it becomes that there is only one viable build.

All in all I do recommend this game, it is good value if you get it on a sale.
