Orcs & Elves review

  • Fantastic audio
  • Tons of personality
  • Satisfying hack and slash action
  • A bit on the short side
  • Pressing select button constantly
  • Selection of wand spells is lacking

From slicing giant bugs open with your flaming sword and painting the walls with their juice, to popping giant spore-spewing pustules with your crossbow, Orcs & Elves is one of the most satisfying action experiences on the DS to date. And don't let the fact that it was originally designed as a cell phone game scare you off - it most definitely does not feel like a port. The dungeons are well-designed, the action is well-balanced and fun, and even the characters are likeable. This is a must-have for any action-RPG fan or anyone looking for something different on the DS.
