    Orcs is not a game for everyone, but you should absolutely give it a look if you're interested in ambitious design or interesting worlds.

    If we had to compare Of Orcs and Men with usual standards, the title can't be seen as a flawless game, especially when you look at its poor level design and its loot system. But it would be a shame to avoid its great tactical fighting sequences, and its amazing narration that could surpass some AAA games, making Of Orcs and Men a pleasant surprise.

    At times beautiful, hilarious, and even occasionally thoughtful, this is a one-of-a-kind action-RPG that deserves your consideration, if not your monetary vote. There's certainly nothing quite like it, and for all its foibles, when it hits its mark, it does so with vigor.

    Of Orcs and Men's few design issues don't prevent it from being a fun, table-turning take on the age-old conflict.

    Flawed, but with potential. There are shining elements in Of Orcs and Men. It looks very good, it has a great soundtrack and the combination of the two protagonists works. But it´s too linear for its own shake, the story tries too much to be "mature" and it doesn't take advance of its potential, among general problems of presentation and production.

    Of Orcs and Men looks like a promising and fair game, but only for a couple of minutes and thanks to the effort that's been put into the perfect stylization. Afterwards, there's just boring gameplay you will try to endure because of the storyline pieces. The truly important game elements have been killed to no avail by an attempt for innovation that is a failure.

The gameplay is like dragon age origins for anyone who is interested and plays as smoothly and balanced as it. Although word of warning due to only having the tank and rogue archetypes it is somewhat simplified, they have replaced the healer class with skills that gradually regenerate health for several seconds. There has also been a lot of trolling due to the fact that the orcs are the heroes although anyone who has actually played the game will know that just because you play an orc and a goblin; this does not mean that all the orcs in the game are good and not all humans are evil. The storyline is simple and the maps are linear but I am having a blast playing the game and "HIGHLY" recommend it to anyone who enjoys old bioware rpg's, it may not have as much depth as them (not very many games do to be honest) but it will satisfy your taste buds. The game deserves an 8/9 out of 10 but I am giving it a 10 to do what I can to counter-act the massive negative trolling that has emerged on the user score.

    Just a follow note if you enjoy fantasy with a grungy dirty feel to it, for example Game of Throne then you should enjoy the feel of this game. It hasn't got everything but you can see focus have really put time and effort into making the game and the stats/gameplay are able to be manipulated enough to change how you play the characters for a second or third play through.

    I assume that the massive review bomb is because of the technical difficulties in downloading it from Steam in the first couple hours. ButI assume that the massive review bomb is because of the technical difficulties in downloading it from Steam in the first couple hours. But seriously, grow up, people. You don't even know what went wrong or whose the fault was, and you're doing something that could potentially cripple the sales of this game.

    Anyway, I got the game installed and running a couple hours ago, and so far it's going pretty well. The main thing that drew me to the game in the first place was the setup: setting the story from the perspective of the Orcs, who are typically delegated to unambiguously evil enemy fodder roles. However, instead of doing the Fable or Overlord thing where you're just an evil bastard for the sake of amusement, the game portrays the Orcs and Goblins as the wronged party, being subjugated and massacred for purely racist reasons on the behalf of the humans.

    Combat so far reminds me of Dragon Age: Origins, allowing you to pause the game in combat to select targets and abilities, and the different gameplay and combat styles between the Orc and Goblin characters balance well and leave for good strategic depth. As you level up you can unlock and upgrade new abilities, and level-ups happen at a good pace so you're always getting new powers to play with. The story so far is well presented, the voice acting is mostly solid, especially in the case of the main character, although a lot of the swearing seems forced, like it had been thrown in just to warrant an M rating. It's not an issue, but it can be a little distracting. The visuals look great maxed out, and from footage I've seen of the console releases the game still looks good even when toned down a little. the art style is kind of generic fantasy fare, but that could just be part of the irony, to help emphasize the point that you're in a pretty dramatic departure from the standard fantasy 'humans=noble, orcs=evil' themes.

    Overall I'm enjoying the game a lot. Don't let the petulant children of the internet fool you, this is a solid game, and well worth checking out.

    Hvis du har spørgsmål, som ikke er omtalt i dette dokument, kan du udnytte WordPress' mange online ressourcer:

    WordPress Codex
    WordPress Codex er det der kommer tættest på en WordPress encyklopædi. Det er den mest udførlige informationskilde om WordPress, der findes.
    The Development Blog
    Her finder du nyheder om de seneste udviklinger i forbindelse med WordPress. Tilføj den til dine bogmærker og kig forbi så tit som muligt.
    WordPress Planet

    WordPress Supportforums
    Hvis du har søgt overalt, men stadig ikke fundet svarene på dine spørgsmål, kan du med fordel benytte dig af forumet. WordPress' forum har mange aktive brugere, som er klar til at hjælpe. For at hjælpe dem til at hjælpe dig, bør du finde en meget præcis titel til dit indlæg og beskrive dit problem så udførligt som muligt.
    WordPress DK
    Hvis du hellere vil tage snakken på dansk, kan du kigge forbi den danske WordPress-side. Der er ikke så mange til at hjælpe som på den engelske side, men det foregår på dansk og med andre, der bruger den danske version! WordPress IRC Channel Til sidst er der en online chat-kanal, som bliver brugt til diskussioner mellem WordPress-brugere - og nogle gange bliver der også snakket om diverse support-emner. Den ovenstående wiki burde føre dig på rette vej (irc.freenode.net #wordpresss). XML-RPC and Atom-interface Du kan nu skrive indlæg til din WordPress-blog med værktøjer som Windows Live Writer, Ecto, Bloggar, Radio Userland (det vil sige, at du kan bruge Radios e-mail-til-blog-mulighed), NewzCrawler og andre værktøjer, der understøtter Blogging API'erne! :) Du kan læse mere om XML-RPC-support i codexet. Skriv via e-mail Du kan skrive indlæg fra en e-mail-klient! Opsætningen er rimelig simpel. Gå til "Skrivning" under menupunktet "Indstillinger" og udfyld detaljerne for din hemmelige pop3-konto. Derefter skal du opsætte wp-mail.php til jævnligt at tjekke din e-mail-konto for nye indlæg. Du kan gøre det med cron-jobs, eller hvis din host ikke understøtter det, kan du kigge på de mange forskellige website-monitoring services, og få dem til at tjekke din wp-mail.php-URL. Det er nemt: Enhver e-mail, der bliver sendt til den adresse, du angiver, vil blive bragt som et indlæg i din blog med e-mailens emne som titel. Derfor er det bedst at holde e-mail-adressen hemmelig. Scriptet vil slette e-mails, der bliver udgivet på bloggen. Brugerroller Vi har droppet brugerniveauer for i stedet at benytte det meget mere fleksible system med roller, som introduceredes in 2.0. Du kan læse mere om roller i WordPress Codex. Afsluttende bemærkninger Hvis du har foreslag, idéer, kommentarer eller hvis du (glup!) har fundet en bug, kan du tilslutte dig vores Supportforum WordPress har et robust plugin API, som gør det nemt at tilføje kode. Hvis du er en udvikler, der er interesseret i at gøre brug af dette, kan du kigge i plugin-dokumentationen i vores Codex. I de fleste tilfælde vil det ikke være nødvendigt at lave om på kernen af WordPress. Spred kærligheden

    This is basically exactly the same as the game of thrones RPG when it comes to game play etc..
    The game does have amazing graphics But here is very little else going for this game..
    The combat systems is terrible, you basically just click a bunch of commands like what attacks you want to use & then wait for like a minute for your guy to finish his attacks..
    If your hoping for a Action RPG like Fable or kingdoms of amalur you will be highly disappointed.
    Don't be fooled be the awesome screen shots in magazines & websites, this game feels like your not really playing just clicking a bunch of buttons & then sitting back waiting for your guy to finish & just watching.. while if you compare the game system to kingdoms of amalur for example that game feels like it you doing the fighting.

    Summary, Don't buy this game..
