One of the better, underrated RPGs out there
Really; Of Orcs and Men is a good RPG - unpolished as it might be. Audio-visually the game is fine, and the storyline is very good. It is sad, though, that Of Orcs and Men was being developed at the same time by Cyanide as the Game of Thrones was. It is clear that they had to divert their people between the two projects: while Of Orcs and Men runs on a different engine than Game of Thrones, the engines aren't that different in the end, yet visual differences between the games are like night and day (likewise, some of the people who were working on Game of Thrones could have been used to polish Of Orcs and Men more). Still, both games have good storylines by their own right (even if I like the Game of Thrones' story more). If you liked Game of Thrones' story (or Of Orcs and Men's story, but haven't checked out Game of Thrones yet), and haven't played Cyanide's other RPG yet, you should check it out. No, it is not a perfect game, but if you are a real RPG player and not just some casual player, then it is a game that you should play.

i'm with Filmster3, DRM is a ♥♥♥♥, an insult to all people that they bought this game. I don't what buy this game an one day i realize that it's not running. No thanks DRM.

If your a gamer like me you can steam through this game in 2-3 days easily. No real reason to replay it, but the story and characters are good enough that you can't fault it for that.

I think it is a very good ARPG with a fun combat system (using a gamepad anyway) and a good story with likeable main characters. The visuals aren't anything groundbreaking but they are certainly decent. The sound design and music in places is good. It is definitely a linear game with a console feel to it but I've been enjoying it quite a lot. I'd give it an 8 out of 10 so far although I'm not finished with it yet. The DRM is stupid yes but are you really going to need 10 activations for this??? I like it and "might" play it one more time somewhere down the road. The DRM will never affect me at all, even if I had a couple hardware failures requiring a reinstall. I know DRM sucks, I agree it does but I would not blow off a good game if the DRM doesn't really hurt you and this one shouldn't.

Good game, good story. Everyone needs to shut up about this DRM its not even intruvise. If theres a console version get that as a rental instead.
