Summary: Overlord has a simple premise. Play as the villain in a Fantasy setting. You can control minions and have access to various weapons and magic. The game progresses by performing various deeds in a very Tolkien-esque world. You can choose to be relatively good or evil. The game starts out fine as it is a great idea acting like a jerk in various situations. However, the novelty wears thin rather fast.
Summary: I enjoyed this game more than I had expected but I couldn't help but be annoyed by the camera angle and controls. I haven't played the 2nd game yet but I hope they improved them. Once I got used to it, it was fun to pillage areas, find loot, and destroy odd little enemies. My daughter likes watching the game and I didn't get as annoyed by the humor as I thought I would.
Summary: This game is a parody of Lord of the Rings, at least insofar as I've played it. That being said, so far I've not seen anything that could be considered evil or remotely disturbing about this game. The most graphic thing I've seen so far is a revealing outfit on the 'evil' mistress. The entire premise is you are the Overlord (you bear a passing resemblance to Sauron from LoTR in my opinion) and you must rebuild your evil empire after a group of heroes kills the previous...
Summary: While the game is good the fact that there is no camera control makes it way harder than it should be. Seeing as you cannot backup and send minions forward instead you just turn around and send them the opposite direction from where you want them to go. So get the PC version as the Mini isn't worth the lack of camera control.
Summary: Oh God. RUN. Run far away from this expansion and never look back. All it is, is difficult and frustrating minigames that shoehorn in the sweep system. Yes, you made a new game mechanic. Good for you. Stop trying to coyly poke me with it like a junior high kid at his first dance.
