Overlord II

Thunderbolt Games

  • Excerpt: Overlord II is – initially, at least – an easy game to like. Its style and silly irreverence falls half way between the inane humour of Monty Python and the more subtle, slightly satirical Olde Worlde fantasy style of Fable . As if controlling a little group of murderous, highly destructive Gremlins – sorry, Minions – wasn’t enough of a selling point, there’s also a dictatorial Romanesque empire to bring down and a whole land to crush or sieze control of.

  • Excerpt: I liked the original Overlord, it was a solid and very enjoyable adventure game that this industry needs more of. In the world of infinite first-person shooters, games like Folklore, Fable, and Overlord are an unfortunate rarity. Their contrasts of dark and bright worlds, good and evil intentions are a breath of fresh air. Overlord took that concept and offered you the ability to take control of dozens of little minions and we liked that.

Overlord II review (PS3)

  • Excerpt: Pastoral scenes and even the menacing fairytale forest are gone, replaced by environs that seem to have been drawn with no discernible rhyme or reason from a hat labeled "whatever was left." The icy village that you once called your home is improbably bordered by a tiny cave that leads almost immediately to a lush forest populated by elves who preach peace and love for all creatures.

  • Conclusion: Petite déception que cet Overlord 2 : après un premier épisode non exempt de tout reproche, nous étions en droit d'attendre une nette amélioration, mais c'est loupé. Il existe encore quelques défauts qui gâchent le plaisir de jeu, notamment à cause des menus fastidieux, des consignes lors des combats contre les boss pas toujours claires et de la caméra parfois capricieuse. Pour une soixantaine d'euros (sur le net) l'addition paraît un peu salée.
  • Pros: L'humour des Larbins, Le concept
  • Cons: Les graphismes, Un gameplay parfois fouillis, Les menus mal étudiés
