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: I can honestly say that when I picked up this game I didn't expect anything unique or different. I was so WRONG. This game starts with a slow story and not much background information. But as you progress through the game there are hints about your past. You soon become obsessed with the story and humor. The controls are hard to get at the beginning but it gets easier and the ending is a truly worth it. I LOVE THIS GAME.
Summary: I've had this game for some time now. I love the game play, being able to control the minions as you walk around each world. You can decide to be evil and keep the locals under your thumb, or be kind and merciful. (you get more power for being evil) And the game builds as you go. You learn to control your minions, you get new kinds of minions as you go, and new weapons and powers. Control is good and not as complicated as some others say it is.
Summary: I like this game a lot, a nice change from being a good guy on the rpg. It is like in the game of Fable on XBox where you can go evil depending on your actions. With this you go evil all the way creating your empire. This kinda reminds me some of the style of Legacy of Kain:Soul Reaver. This game is a good run on to lay back and enjoy.
Summary: It is an amazing game, there is a lot of adventure and it is not repetitive. There are many surprises and it has a great sense of humor and gives you the option of being good or bad and changes the story completely. Lots of bosses and challanges, the minions are amazing and it is so cool that you can have four types of them. The expansion is already included and it goes good with the original story and adds more challanges and fun experience.
