Summary: In short, this game was gorgeous. I was in awe as I walked through the world, sending my minions to crush my enemies and friends at will. Fields were full of sun-kissed flowers swaying independently in the wind, and wonderful emerald waterfalls flowing peacefully into streams...
Summary: The best part of this game is the quirky humor. I found some of the puzzles and tricks to navigation a bit of a pain and didn't go all the way to the end, but it was WELL WELL worth playing just for the quirky humor and funny graphics and game play. Be prepared for some wild surprises!
Summary: Overall this is really fun game and I had a blast playing it. The controls are a little rough to get get used too but one you have it down it is a lot of fun. I would have gave it a five star rating but for me after I finished the game I didn't want to play it anymore.
Summary: I really like the game. I bought it to see if I'd like it before spending $50 on one of the new ones for a different system. I would definitely buy the latest games. I had some trouble learning the controls. They aren't the easiest to use and take some getting used to.
Summary: There are VERY few games that are released on the pc that I would go back and play again a long time after it has been released. Overlord happens to be one of those games. Its combination of fun gameplay with a funny storyline makes this title an instant hit and a classic to be revisited.
Summary: This game is a great spoof off of any fantasy game/movie. The first level puts you right into a nice mid evil village that is rustic and beautiful and you send your minions to pillage and plunder it, it's very funny in that respect.
Excerpt: I played the demo only, on 360. I have to say that it is quite novel, and a good, solid, fun idea. The problem I had is being used to practically every other 3D game out there--the right stick doesn't control the camera in this game, much as you want it to.
Excerpt: The chance to look at what really would have happened had those goddamn Tolkien characters been given a decent personality. Greed, lust, murder, it's all here, in contemporary British humor. You play this game knowing this, you will love it.
Excerpt: I've finally bought this game for $20 and it's worth the purchase. I fell in love with the demo on Xbox Live, but haven't had the chance to pick up the full version and play it ... until now. Overlord is one of those rare, overlooked, gems that accomplishes what it was trying to do.
