Summary: If you enjoy classic gameplay, this might be the game for you. This game reminds me of a turn baised version of Close Combat 1-4. If you enjoy military simulation gameplay, you ought to pick it up. The graphics defuallt at 1280 x 960, 60hz; but are auto adjusted.
Summary: One of the best war games I have ever played. The graphics are not that great, but the gameplay is awesome. If you like the shot'em up type games then this game is not for you. If you like strategy and realistic type action this is the one.
Conclusion: This is definitely one to buy. Shades of Dungeon Keeper here and the humour is constantly amusing rather than getting annoying after a while. The game play style takes a little getting used to, somewhere between FPS and RTS, but ends up being great fun. I give it 4 stars rather than 5 for two reasons: the control system is far more suited to a gamepad than mouse & keyboard and the recommended spec should have an addendum - unless you run at 1600 x 1200.
Conclusion: Underestimated thanks to a limited demo that only allowed access to one minion type. When you have access to all four types the game reaches its full potential and is at its best when the different types are used for puzzle solving, but the game is balanced a little too far in favour of combat which proves repetetive.
Conclusion: this game is good, i found it to be a mix of fable with a hint of dungeon keeper, i thought it was a good game with humor through out it lol it a good way to spend time but not really big enough game to keep you entertained for long
Conclusion: i recently bought this game and although i have not yet completed it i am currently enjoying it! Although the game can feel a little childish for a 16+ its is still fully enjoyable with very reasonable graphics, although the game feels repetive at times and also that there is not enough customization for your character the overlord.
Excerpt: "I can honestly say that Overlord has been a new and refreshing experience for a hardened gamer like myself (by hardened i mean someone who spends most of his free time gaming, and the rest thinking about gaming). Sad heh? Although the idea behind the game (being as bad as you can in a fantasy world) is similar to some previous well known tiltles there are details which i find compelling. Firstly the story. Simple but effective is the phrase ...
Excerpt: Overlord si è rivelato una magnifica sorpresa. Il prodotto realizzato da Codemaster non si limita ad avere uno schema di gioco originale, ma graficamente si presenta in modo spettacolare ed avvincente. Anche le premesse non sono affatto banali: noi vest ...
Summary: Vor allem, wenn es keinerlei Konsequenzen nach sich zieht. Was ich genau meine und warum denn böse sein geil ist, das erfahrt ihr in meinem Erfahrungsbericht weiter unten. Wie der Titel des Spiel, seid ihr ein Overlord, wiedererweckt von euren Untertanen und euer Königreich liegt in Schutt und Asche. Euer dunkler Turm ist ein Haufen Scherben, aber ihr habt ein paar unterwürfige Anhänger und die nächstgelegenen Dorfbewohner haben alles andere als Angst vor euch.
Pros: - geniales Spielprinzip mit der Befehligung seiner eigenen Untertanen, super schwarzer Humor, Graf
Cons: - Steuerung gewöhnungsbedürftig, ein paar dämliche Quests
