4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely rough around the edges, but well worth it. October 16, 2012

I've never been one to give long reviews, so I don't plan on starting here. To begin I would like to say while this game is obviously a little rough, with combat that isn't amazing (I would liken it to Dragon Age: Origins)a story that isn't completely ground breaking, it still has a great atmosphere that makes you wan't to see the game to it's end.

The game starts you off as an Elite Orc warrior named Arkail, who is given a task by an elite Orc group he's a part of (sorry no spoilers.) So you begin the adventure, and meet up with a Goblin named Styx, who is essentially the "comic relief" of the game, who chimes in to add his quirky two cents often.

The Pros:
-A nice atmosphere that makes you really push for the usual "Bad guy" in fantasy series. (Honestly I've always been a fan of Orcs)
-The chance to be a giant Orc warrior makes you feel powerful, and throughout the game you really get a sense of pride for the people you fight for.
-Combat isn't amazing, but it is compelling in the sense that you really have to watch what's going on, otherwise you could end up dead really fast.
-A story that drives you forward, with a nice couple of twists and turns that you don't expect, or are rather intrigued by how they implemented certain things.
-Dialogue options make you feel in charge of what's going on for the most part.
-The graphics aren't ground breaking, but they are pretty good by my standards.

The Cons:
-Bad voice acting can ruin immersion at times, the two main characters are well voiced, but lackluster acting by most non-important npc's makes you feel like everyone is rather boring.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very fun and engaging story November 28, 2012
I was afraid to pick this one up after Game of Thrones, since they are both from the same studio, but I really enjoyed this game. The story was interesting with several twists and turns, the two main characters were really fun to carry throughout the game. The banter and relationship between them is quite unique. The gameplay, while not the deepest, is strategic and fun. The level design is somewhat, well, completely linear. This didn't detract from anything for me since there are plenty of open-world rpgs out there. One gripe I had was that when you assassinated someone, their corpse didn't set off any alarms to the surviving patrols. they would simply walk right over them as if they weren't there. Aside from that, I had a blast playing Of Orcs and Men, and would recommend it to anyone interested in a good story driven rpg that has you playing a character you normally wouldn't in such a setting.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpeice, plain and simple April 2, 2014

This is a tale for adults. Intelligent mature adults. Not because of nudity. Its the language and tale itself. I really don't recommend this game to someone under 15. The team that put this story together are, I think, masters in the art of fine story telling. You are pulled right into the story of Arkail [ a mighty elite Orc warrior ] and Styx [ a stealthy Goblin. ] The story is linear; but that was fine with me. I was so engaged with the story all I wanted was to press forward anyway. You can play as Arkail , the 800lb Orc or as Styx, the 80lb deadly thief. I preferred to play and control Styx. I let Arkail be the muscle. As Styx I could vanish, sneak up behind my prey and, well, slash their throats. Perhaps my gaming system is better than most, because I found the graphics to be top notch. I could see the wetness of Styx's leather glimmer beneath the sheen of the water, which sparkled in the light. The two character's obviously were focused on for such marvelous immersion. Whereas the worlds environment were just average, for visual/graphic quality. I found the voice acting of Arkail and Styx to be authentic, strong and believable. The controls are sooooooooo easy to learn and use. You can load up your next 4 moves on a wheel, and then switch to the other character, load his next 4 moves up and just keep rotating between them both. Simple to use, very effective. I just have great things to say about this game. Some of the fights you will face may seem impossible to win. Strategy, is the key.
When the game was done, I remember thinking about how much fun Styx was to play. I wish there were more of him, like, in some other game to play. But, there was not. Styx, is not like Arkail. Arkail is huge, not what you would call a thinker, you know.

Cyanide et.al. has several games with the same engine now. These games are all mostly story telling games when the focus is story, and tactics using skills during battle. At first I was not sure I would like this new subgenre of game but it is turning out reasonably good. Something different from a dungeon crawl anyway.

the key to these games is

1. good story
2. good interface
3. several varied options to fighting style

These games tend to offer all in reasonable proportions and OOAM does too. Overall it was a good game, especially when had on sale.

Steam tells me my total game play was 14 hours. A bit short. Its not like I skipped any of the side quests as there are not that many. Nothing is perfect. Some of the plot twists were a bit predictable and shallow. But the voice acting was very good which means a lot to such a game. I think the industry has finally developed a reservoir of good voice talent to draw upon. Serious actors providing believability to the action.

One thing people might miss is inventory variability. There simply is not much happening in this game by way of inventory. There are a few good pieces and once you find them you keep them. I ended up with 18 inventory points left over at the end of the game so there might have been more that could be done there. But it is not integral to the game play so I guess this is why that part of it is minimal.

Like I said a good play. Hope these guys have more of their style games coming soon. Remember cyanide, choose a good story with interesting plot twists and side plots, get good voice actors, make sure there is some interesting potential combos during fighting, especially where the two characters can co-operation. Love the time slowdown feature.

Hail Flavius!
