Easy to learn, challenging to play, and snarky humor.

Summary: Yes, I'm writing a review for a very old game that has long since passed its time of popularity. However, I just finished playing through it for the fifth or sixth time, and I thought that sustained enjoyment deserved some praise, however late. This game was a surprise gift from a good friend of mine who knew that my favorite character to play in Diablo II was the Summoning Necromancer.
Summary: I'm sick to death of Company of Heroes and Command & Conquer type games, where I can't even process a full thought before having to fling units all over a map in panicked desperation, so this game (and series) is exactly what I've been craving. This game is quite ugly compared to the modern RTS darlings, but you can actually plot and contemplate your moves, which is a benefit that fully overtakes any complaints about graphics.
Summary: This game is great! The only thing that gave me a bit of a problem was the defaults the game starts out with. You use both the mouse and the KB to play or a gamepad. Since the mouse is used to control you minions, the KB controls your character and certain other things you can do. It is set up for a right-handed mouse user.
Summary: I have gotten so much enjoyment out of playing this game that I would have to factor hundreds of hours of playtime per penny spent buying it. How many things could you say that about, maybe a book that you have read many times over the years might come in a distant second. The game is not perfect, but even at full price I would recommend it to anyone that loves turned based, armor oriented, WW2 games.
Summary: i loaded Overlord soon as it came in the mail, grapichs were smooth, game play was easy and entertaining, the choice between evil and super evil is always a nice touch, definently woth having and playing over again time after time
