Be it through books, games, or movies, the fantasy genre of late has started to take a closer look at mankind's greatest foe: the orc. Stances have begun to soften, their portrayals as heartless monsters have been replaced with those presenting them as savage, yet honorable creatures, and certainly not created to oppose the forces of good. The Orcs Must Die! franchise (including Orcs Must Die! Unchained) brings us back to the days of yore, when orcs were evil and needed to be slain. That was that.
