Dark Tower Seeking New Management, Applicants Should Have Letters of Condemnation Ready

  • Excerpt: When Overlord quietly made its way onto store shelves two years ago, it was one of those games that you either played or never even heard about. A quirky fantasy tale where the player set out to conquer the world rather than save it, its Pikmin -like gameplay, terrific voicework, and twisted charm quickly gained it a cult following, enough so that publisher Codemasters deemed fit to bring not just one, but three new Overlord titles to light, all on the same day.

Test Overlord II

Generation NT

  • Conclusion: Overlord 2 tombe donc malgré tout dans les travers habituels qui caractérisent les suites. On retrouve ainsi un titre qui se contente avant tout de tenter de reprendre les bons points de son prédécesseur tout en améliorant certains autres. Malheureusement, si pour la première partie c'est positif, on ne peut pas dire que l'amélioration espérée, notamment au niveau du gameplay et de la caméra, soit d'une réelle efficacité.
  • Pros: L'univers déjanté d'Overlord, C'est bon d'être mauvais, Durée de vie, Des décors encore plus destructibles
  • Cons: Des défauts pas améliorés sur le gameplay, L'impression de déjà vu

Overlord II Review

VideoGamer.com
9 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Overlord offered something a little different on its release in 2007. While it didn’t let you be quite as evil as a real evil Overlord would be (if such a thing existed), the combination of tongue-in-cheek humour and accessible RTS-light gameplay made it well worth owning. There was something quite addictive about sending groups of minions on evil rampages through lush rural villages, destroying everything in their path.

Auracore MediaWorks

  • Summary: It's time to show those silly humans and pansy elves who the real boss is.
  • Pros: Same great sense of humor; Improved Minion control; Better suited alignment system; Unique minion system is a nice change.
  • Cons: Spells feel underpowered; Domination alignment is frustrating; Totally broken checkpoint system; storyline is woefully disinteresting.

Overlord 2 Review

Zeitgeist Review
8 October 2009
  • Summary: Overlord 2 thankfully didn’t stray too far from its prequel. The core game-play mechanic of controlling the minions to solve puzzles and plunder and pillage is still intact, and that is what makes the series great. The levels are fun to play and are quite challenging sometimes, but the grind can get out of control and some of the content is rather repetitive.

Overlord II Review

PlayStation Universe
9 July 2009
  • Summary: Wickedly funny and diabolically evil, Overlord II may not be a true evolution of the fantasy series, but it still offers a refreshingly entertaining gaming experience.
  • Pros: The humorous script and funny behavior of the minions, Destroying everything in sight, Seeing our wealth grow and customizing our fortress
  • Cons: The confusing map design, Having to gradually unlock the minion classes, The eye-aching visuals
