Die Story ist recht überschaubar, Arkail (der Ork) wird von seinem Clan-Häuptling losgeschickt um den Imperator zu töten, dieser ist bei allen Orks verhasst, weil er alle nicht menschlichen Bewohner des Landes entweder versklavt oder töten lässt.

Of Orcs and Men ist ein Third-Person-Rollenspiel mit einem taktischen Kampfsystem, der Spieler übernimmt die Rolle der beiden Hauptcharaktere, die Steuerung des entsprechenden Charakters lässt sich per Tab von Arkail zu Styx (der Goblin) und umgekehrt wechseln. Das ist auch notwendig, da jeder Held spezielle Fähigkeiten besitzt, zum Beispiel kann sich Styx nahezu unsichtbar machen und Feinde lautlos meucheln oder per Fernangriff Messer auf seine Gegner werfen. Arkail ist dagegen eher der grobe Typ, er kann mit Äxten, Schwertern und ähnlich großem Material im Nahkampf zuschlagen. Als Besonderheit kann er auch Styx auf einen entfernten Vorsprung werfen um zu Beispiel einen Armbrustschützen zu töten. Somit hat man verschiedene Möglichkeiten ein Kampf zu bestehen.

Tja, und Kämpfe gibt es genug, die sich auch wegen des Skillsystems, welches drei Abschnitte enthält (Angriff, Spezial und Verteidigung), etwas ausbauen/verbessern lassen. Des Weiteren besteht die Möglichkeit den Kampf entweder "aktiv" in Echtzeit, oder per vorbelegung (Pausemodus, 4 Slots) zu gestalten. Wobei meiner Meinung nach das Skill- wie auch das Handelssystem recht rudimentär gehalten ist, und für ein Rollenspiel eher spartanisch wirkt.

Die Dialoge und Quest sind ebenso wie das skillsystem eher übersichtlich, und man hat nicht wirklich viele Möglichkeiten. Die Level sind in sämtlichen Gebieten sehr klein und linear. Die Musik und Kampfgeräusche passen, und die deutschen Sprecher der Helden kommen authentisch rüber.

Mir hat trotz allem Of Orcs and Men viel Spaß bereitet, es war im wahrsten Sinne mal etwas anderes, die Charaktere und ihre kleinen Streitereien/Dialoge fand ich witzig und auflockernd. Wiederspielen werde ich es bestimmt noch einmal auf einer anderen schwierigkeitsstufe, aber ein langzeitspiel wie TES Skyrim / Oblivion ist es definitiv nicht.

Ein sehr spannend erzähltes Rollenspiel mit taktisch anspruchsvollen Echtzeitkämpfen mit Zeitlupenmodus. Ist exakt so wie das Game of Thrones RPG. Story ist top und bietet neben einigen Entscheidungsmöglichkeiten auch ein paar Nebenquests, Schlauchlevels sind dafür eher mittelmäßig (Konsolen lassen grüßen), die Kämpfe dafür wieder spannender dank vielfältiger Angriffs- und Verteidigungsmannöver. Die Grafik ist auch eher nur aufgehübschtes Konsolenzeug, oft ist die Umgebung dennoch recht hübsch gemacht. Steuerung ist auf jeden Fall eingängig und sehr gut gelungen, ist wie gesagt ein sehr stark taktisch geprägtes Rollenspiel, kein Action-RPG! Man kann z.B. als Styx leise viele Gegner im Vorraus abmeucheln, dann wirds auch leichter, den Rest der Einheiten zu killen. Auf dem leichtesten der 3 Schwierigkeitsgrade sollte jeder Story-Liebhaber das Spiel ohne allzu große Mühe packen können, selbst wenn er taktische Kämpfe eher meidet. Alleine wegen der tollen unverbrauchten Story sollte man sich das Spiel im Deal kaufen!

Story Reicher Titel mit ♥♥♥us auf ein Kampfsystem, das leider sehr gewöhnungsbedürftig ist. Wenig RPG Elemente und kaum Loot. Die Story ist die Stärke dieses Spiels, da diese durch die beiden ungewöhnlichen Hauptcharaktere mit Leben gefüllt wird.

Besser mit Controller zu spielen, als mit Tastatur und Maus.

Eine Empfehlung fällt mir hier ein wenig schwer, daher sage ich folgendes zu "Of Orcs and Men":
Wer ein RPG-Light mit ungewöhnlicher Story für die Couch sucht, das man sich lokker um die Ohren schlakkern kann, kann mit "Of Orc and Men" nichts falsch machen. Der Rest wird eventuell mit den RPG-Light Elementen seine Probleme haben, insbesondere mit dem Kampfsystem. Mir hats aber dennoch Spass gemacht.

Ich kann nicht verstehen warum so viele dieses Spiel so schlecht machen...im Summer Sale gekauft und auf jeden Fall für gut befunden...Werde mir auch noch das Spiel holen wo nur Styx dabei ist.

+Grafik ist okay
+Spielzeit ca. 16-18 std. auf normal
+Story unterhaltsam
+ Super Kampfsystem
+Fähigkeiten und Attribute

+/- Schlauchlevel ...stört mich aber nicht

- Waffen und Rüstungsteile gibt es zwar viele ,aber leider sind nicht alle immer besser (auch die im späterem Verlauf dazukommen) ....also sind für beide höchsten 2-3 von nutzen
-der zweite Charakter kommt manchmal nicht ganz so flott mit<---ist aber nur beim laufen (führt dazu das man kurz warten muss)

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 addition 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

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.

I really wanted to like this game. It has a really unique take on a fantasy setting and I wanted to press through and see it come to a great end that justifies its slow start.

Didn't happen. The game controls like complete garbage. I found myself constantly frustrated by one of my characters either standing still getting beat on or conversely, sprinting off at a random group of enemies half the map away from the current battle. You can do every side quest and explore every corner but random difficulty spikes will slap you down and left me scratching my head about how I could conceivably progress.

I can give a recommendation with a qualification if you want to run through on easy and see how the story goes but other than that Of Orcs and Men isn't worth your time. There are better games to be played than this unenjoyable slog.

This game is one of the greatest underappreciated gems I have had the pleasure of finding in a long time. There are obvious things that sully the experience a bit, but given this is the effort of small studio on a tight budget these aren't hard to look past.

The story takes a twist on typical fantasy by having orcs being oppressed and subjegated by humans, and in light of this, your main character is on a quest to kill the emperor who seeks to unite elves and dwarves against "the greenskins."

The main character is Arkence, or the "butcher" as he has been dubbed after a bloody masacre in his past. What's great here is that this story element actually works into the gameplay. As you take damage your rage meter builds, and if you don't use skills to keep your calm he becomes enraged. In this state, he more powerful but reckless and uncontrollable, attacking foes in random order.

Evening this out is his original odd couple partner in crime, Styx. He is a goblin assassin, the only one of his race who can speak or display any intelligence at all. He causes bleeds, poisons and lowers defense in combat, and out of combat he small stealth sections where he dispatches as many soldiers as he can before things eventually fall to pieces.

The story is well surprisingly well written considering every other line of dialogue has a swear word, because it fits into the narrative and general feeling of the story. I was honestly surprized at myself when I started the characters, admiring the way the duo chirped eachother and eventually grew into a like-minded friendship. Combat slows down when you pause so you can plan each of their actions, and everything works quite well. The graphics are nice enough and the game has a surprizingly good soundtrack that hits all the right notes when a sad or intense situation takes rise.

Sadly, there are some issues, though they are just a lot of nitpicks that don't effect the solid feel of gameplay. Character models don't sync up in most cutscenes, a weapon constantly floats in air against Ark's back, voice acting apart from the main duo is largely sub-par. You are told of great battles going on in other places due to what's happening in the story and can't be there because the budget game wouldn't allow it, and some people might not like how the stealth sections work. You essentially sneak around and kill guards in order of which would be able to see the act from their FOV, the ai will walk past dead bodies without raising alarm which seems silly but is also necessary to that element of gameplay. This is a stop motion turn based rpg first, the stealth is more like a small minigame that you are never actually forced to do that makes fights easier.

Past that, there are a bunch of sidequests which never feel pointless as the duo banter and you find out more meaningful things about the story. I'm not usually someone who likes sidequests but it worked well for me. You have a mission hub in different zones and when you pick a mission it is generally linear except for a few hidden treasures. There's a couple of choices to be made in the game that have small outcomes on story, but nothing with permanance.


All and all, the flaws take you out of the experience in a small fathom but do little to stop this extremely charming game from taking your heart. The prequel, Styx:Master of shadows is out soon, and I can't wait to delve again into this world again, and see how much the studio has grown since their time between the titles.

9/10 There's nitpicks, but the story, the gameplay and the pacing are all great and a low budget doesn't change that.

"Fun, original and pretty dam good. oOaM is well worth looking into and buying. Play as the blood crazed orc and the witty Goblin in this awesome Game..."

A over used story with a new twist. Finally you can play as the enemy of man... Of Orcs and Men is a 3rd Person Action, RPG. It features a unlikley pair, an orc and goblin, who team up to end the enslavement of the orcish kind. After the Emperor of the realm of man expands his empire into the orc domain the green-skins are enslaved or killed. Few survive waiting for the moment to strike back. You have been tasked with killing this emperor and freeing the orc's.

Fun with a varied playstyle I will definatly be playing more of this game...

Of Orcs and Men is a game that you will either love or hate. If you can forgive the initial awkwardness of the combat and the linier corridor like levels, what you will find is a rich and rewarding, well-acted story that turns the men good orcs evil premise of almost the past 20 years on its head. The two main leads really pull you into the story and once you find the flow of the combat, it becomes almost second nature, demanding a little tactical thinking to win. I can’t recommend this game highly enough. It finished leaving me wanting more with a lot of great memories of my time in its world.

"Of Orcs and Men" has become a favorite of mine. Its fun, engaging and memorable. The characters, though simple at first, become more complex as you continue on through the story. Styx especially is one of the more interesting characters in a video game that I have ever seen.

Don't expect much choice or loot. But the game gets an 'A" for graphics and storytelling. The combat is similar to the original mass effect or dragon age. But the skillsets are very cool. Defintely an understated gem. You get to be a tank and a stealthy assassin. Orc and a goblin. How cool is that? Cant wait for the sequel.

This game had a lot of potential, with an interesting plot, crisp graphics and an innovative dual character system, but I just can't get past how dissapointed I am in a few key aspects of game play;

The combat mechanics system they introduce here is unlike other RPGs. For each of your two characters you assign a list of actions they will execute in order, which allows for the near simulataneous control of your orc and goblin, but robs you of the fluidity that is normally present in comparable games. I never got the sense that success or failure in combat was at all connected with my level of skill or understanding of the game. I clicked the 'attack' button and the orc attacked. I didn't feel in control of my own characters.

The constant interuptions, especially in the beginning, do a lot to slow down the pace of the game and make you feel less like you a playing an RPG and more like you are watching a CGI movie. Each time you go around a corner the camera pans to show you where a group of guards is standing or draw you into dialogue with a character that you don't want to interact with.

Even some of the dialogue choices you are given are largely irrelevant as option A will lead you to fight a person now, while option B will have to fighting the exact same person 90 seconds later. It is common for this genre to not include these choices. No Zelda game ever let you choose if you wanted to fight Ganon or not, and that is perfectly fine, but if we will have choices make them real choices that have different outcomes. If the developers wanted to make a precisely scripted game without minor plot variations then why let players choose their dialogue response at all?

I was honestly looking forward to playing this game, but quickly became frustrated by these annoyances that detract from the emersion experience. If these traits don't sound like they would bother you then perhaps you will enjoy this game more than I did.

Very nice game. I would recommend only buying this game if its on sale, but its still very enjoyable for a 10$ or under game.

Infact, Its one of the most fun games ive played in a while. The assasinations are very fun!
I think It could use some work personally, but I would also like to acknowlege it is outdated and still looks amazing.
I wouldn't buy unless you have an i7 though, not because its hard on your PC, its just less laggy, and will look and run alot better :)
