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!

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 don't consider this videogame as RUBBISH. Many people think that but I disagree. Actually, I enjoyed the storyline. After all, you are an orc and not the usual human greenskins killer! The game has different defects. The animations are not really synchronized and the AI looks pretty stupid many times. Those must be improved in a sequel honestly. Graphically I expected something really better, so I was a bit disappointed when I start playing it. I don't wanna talk about the gameplay.. it's really boring and it must be redone completely. I think a "more action" style would be more funny than simply clicking on skills and look at your characters doing the job for ya. There's also some micro-management in that, but nothing serious. As I said before, the storyline is nice and I played it just for it. Actually, there are different side quests, but, actually, I don't know if they affect the story at all. Oh,yes, one more thing: In my opinion, the "missions" are too short. Most of the time you'll be watching videos. They are not that bad but I'd like to play something more too. The right balance should be found. I didn't pay for a movie, but a videogame ;). This may be exaggerated but, still, the good balance must be found. I'd recommend this game if you wanna play a nice storyline and love orcs.

Overall a great game. Probably one of the more enjoyable Action RPG with tactical pause in recent years for a number of reasons.

Good visuals and 3rd persion with a great perspective and decent controls that works well with a keyboard and mouse. It just is very easy and clean once you understand it. Very well done story with decent voice acting.

Itemization is a little simplistic yet effective. Inventory management and item upgrades are very streamlined for ease of use. Which struck me as a little odd given how challenging the game can be at times The end result is an interesting blend of streamlined yet difficult in that it requires planning and thought for how to approach fights.

Stealth gameplay was very well done and incredibly effective at helping you to progress through the game.

It is very linear however does not feel especially short or rushed.

Limited character customizations outside of basic attributes and skill trees and there is no new game + so this not a game most will replay.

I am the type of player who really likes exploring and finding all of the quests and yet doing that in this game I still could not break above 17.5 hours of gameplay. So while it is not too short it could have had a bit more content or at the very least new game+.

Overall a solid 7 out of 10.

Highly recommended at $15 or less.

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.
