I first picked up this game expecting a three dimensional dungeon crawler from a first person perspective. Although it did not meet these expectations it was very good anyway. The problems with it at first were that unlike "Resident Evil" or "Quake" it had only four directions and was turn based. This was a quick turn off. However it was picked back up by the combat system which just wouldn't work in a non turn based system. My friend repeatedly tries to persuade me to play Dungeons and Dragons with him. I dislike D&D because I have a small imagination and can't picture the game in my head, so all it is to me is rolling dice. This is the same reason I play Dragonfable over Adventure Quest, because in Dragon fable I can see my character out of combat. In Orcs&Elves it provides a dungeons and dragons like game, only you don't have to roll and you can see your surroundings from a first person perspective. The game is very good and starts you out with a simple wand and sword. You can use the wand a limited amount of times, however it gives you long range, the sword is infinite but only hits one space in front of you. This game also has a pokemon like grid system, only from first person perspective. Throughout the game you will gain new items and weapons, and will be pitted against bosses of all sorts, shapes, and sizes. Although it is dragged down by bad storyline, animations, and other small nuisances it has great potential and I think that if a sequel were made and they worked out these things it could become one of the best games ever.
