Of Monsters 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.

*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!

It's really something else. Beyond that not everyone's going to like it.
But those of you who will, will be enjoying every moment of the game.

Developer: Cyanide Studio - Spiders Studios

Different. That’s the word I’d use to describe Of Orcs and Men.

Story
Let’s take a quick look at RPG games in general.
If I’d ask you ‘bout the features of a typical RPG game you’d probably start by saying Hero,
And you’d be correct but that on this case. Of Orcs and Men is not a Story about Heroes or the forces of good. I mean, correct me if I’m wrong, but when was the last time an Orc or a Goblin was a Hero? Usually we face them with anger, hatred and their sole purpose is to make us feel heroic by slaughtering them. Not to mention they’re stupid, dumb and lack general intelligence. Not in most case but usually they’re just stupid.

Not in this case. While I’m not going ahead to say our two, let’s just go ahead and call em Heroes for the sake of RPGs, are real Einsteins or whatnot but they’re certainly examples which happened to grow on me. Especially Styx.

Let me introduce you our two Heroes. In the red corner we have a Arkail. A member of the Blood Jaws. A Rebel if you want to call him that. You might be wondering why so let me explain.

The Story in this game is unlike others. Usually you’re one of the good races and you have to stop the Orcs from ravaging the lands and slaughter your Wife and unborn Child. That’s how the Story involving Orcs usually goes.

In Of Orcs and Men you seek revenge. A tyrannical human empire is the ruler of all and thus our beloved Greenskins, as they’re called, are now being persecuted and enslaved and it’s up to Arkail, an Orc which I’d describe as the Hulk of all Orcs, and his companion Styx, a Goblin. Their goal is free the Greenskins by assassinating the human emperor.

So you see it’s a different concept. Which, personally, I happened to like.

Characters
I talked a bit ‘bout Arkail so let’s talk about Styx. Well Styx’s one of a kind. Besides him, no one has ever seen any Goblin speak or shown any signs of intelligence. So he’s one of a kind.
While Arkail is the muscle, Styx would be best to described as the brain. To an extent.
What that means is, while Arkail wants to let his rage free way, and literally become the Hulk and kill everything he lays eyes upon, that also includes Styx, our one of a kind Goblin on the other hand rather relies on his way of handling things: Stealth and Assassination.

Gameplay
You control Arkail and Styx on the click of a button. Both have two stances, so two ways of attacking. Arkail has an offensive stance, which of course, has damage oriented skills and the defensive stance and skill sets. I talked ‘bout Arkail being the Hulkbefore so let’s talk about that. He has a Rage mechanic. What that means is that there’ll be rage building up and once he has build up the rage he will target any enemy he sees and becomes uncontrollable. That also includes Styx. So beware. Once he’s in his rage you’re best bet is to get some distance between those two or else Styx will get downed rather quick.

Styx on the other hand is your typical thief with hand-to-hand, dagger, combat skills and a ranged set where he relies on throwing knifes. Beyond that he can enter stealth stance so he’s able to pick off unaware enemies and even the odds.

They both can also work together so Arkail can throw Styx, for example, on enemies or Styx can pass Arkail a bottle which boosts his health regeneration in battle.

Atmosphere
Excuse me for the following:
Of Orcs and Men seems to be one ♥♥♥♥ing good game where the ♥♥♥♥ing characters talk like ♥♥♥♥ing drunken sailors.

Well the game’s not afraid to use adult language. To be quite honest, while it might be not for everyone, I do believe it fits the game perfectly. Keep in mind we’re ♥♥♥♥ing talking ‘bout a ♥♥♥♥ing big ol’ green Orc and a ♥♥♥♥ing lil’ Goblin.

The voice acting of the key characters is quite good but … everyone else seems to be lacking some effort.

Difficulty
So here’s the thing. The game has four difficulties. Personally I’ve been playing on Extreme from the get go, since I always enjoy playing on the hardest difficulty first, and let me tell you this.
This game is hard. Not even kidding one bit. So I can only imagine how easy it’d be on a lower difficulty.
So that could be a reason why a lot of people don’t enjoy the game. It does have a learning curve and, despite playing two usually dumb and stupid characters, you’ve to think ‘bout how you want to approach the situation.

What else can I ♥♥♥♥ing say?
The game is for a specific crowd. Let’s start by saying this. It’s certainly not for everybody but for those of you who’re interested in the game and for those of you who’re not afraid of a real challenging game … It’ll grow on you. I certainly enjoy it. Special thanks to the dialogues I certainly enjoyed those.
I'd really say you should give this game a try. It's certainly not bad. It's just something else.

Dont you ever get sick of the hate towards orcs and goblins? Being always the evil force in games? Well dont know about you but I do,thats for sure. And OOAM let me kill humans now... how refreshing .

Story,Quests and Levels

You are Arkail,fearsome orc,who is apointed with the assassination of the Emperor. In your journey you will be lead by Styx,master of stealth and assassination. Story is linear with here and there some decision making. At 2-3 points you will end up in hub-like area from which you can get different side quests to complete and improve yourself. The levels you will find are linear,each of them separated in "zones" . There isnt much of exploration which can be bad or good depending on the player.

RPG elements

Well you can equip your characters with some items and pick skills everytime they level up. Later in the game you are given 2 options per character to specialize them. Nothing to deep. Its simple but its doing its job in the game.

Combat

Combat is in 2 phases(or if you are good enough you can pick just one of them):
1st. Stealth: you put Arkail in some spots save and use Styx to wonder around and kill guards without being seen. It takes time but make Phase 2 much easier... talking about phase 2.
2.Once detected every guard from the "zone" will charge at you and fun time starts. Combat is action-based,there isnt pause button to set a lineup of skills for the orc and goblin to use. Instead you are given slow-motion button so you have to be fast with selecting targets and skills. Combat needs sometime to get used to it. One thing that you should have in mind, Arkail got a berserk stance, while he do and takes dmg berserk fills and once full he goes all nuts,take less dmg,deals more dmg and attacks everything that moves... even Styx so run for the hills if this happens.

Replayability

Only reason to replay the game is to pick different decisions at places but for most people even one playthrough will be good enough.

Overall

A nice and solid RPG with interesting combat and story to tell.

Not a fan of this style of gameplay so that is my fault for not checking into the game more.

I took a chance since STYX-Master of Shadows (made by the same company) was one of my fav stealth games, while I knew they were different types of games I was hoping I would like it, but this type of turn based combat is not my thing. I won't rate it down because it is what it is.

For the graphics, story and other elements...7/10
