Of Orcs and Men Review | GameSpy

The faint whiff of pretension lurking about the title of this European RPG isn't an accident. Of Orcs and Men bears at least a passing resemblance to John Steinbeck's famous tale of Depression-era misery in America, with a lumbering powerhouse of an orc named Arkail standing in for simple-minded Lennie and a roguish goblin named Styx in the role of George Milton. As in Of Mice and Men, this is a tale of outsiders carving their way in a world that spurns them, and while Arkail and Styx may not be heroes in the traditional sense, developers Cyanide and Spiders make it hard not to sympathize with their plight. (Of Orcs and Men, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 3/5
