Summary: June 24, 2009 - Sequels are a chance to right past wrongs and hone the gameplay into something that can establish a franchise's identity. Overlord II did not follow this path. Rather than address the major issues with the first game, Triumph Studios tried to cover them up by tossing in some new...
Summary: The graphics are second rate. It is not that important because the game tries to be high in playability and just simple fun. The game designers had a lot of fun poking fun at fantastical worlds and have a morbid sense of humour.

Summary: The first title in this series was fresh and fun. PS3 owners got a great bargain because the game and the expansion "Raising Hell" was included in a single PS3 title. By comparison, Overlord II seems a little boring and short.
Summary: Sorry this is so long, if you want depth read the whole thing, if you prefer brevity then I would simply say for those who never played the first one you should play it, it is more fun than the second, and for those who did play the first, then rent the second before you buy, because it is less fun...
Summary: This game just barely doesn't epically fail, and really the only thing that keeps it that way is the minion humor. Horrible sweep/camera control setup, pathetic "save system" (limited to autosaves unless you are in your Netherworld Tower looking at the map), several bugs/glitches, etc.
Excerpt: In my opinion, This game makes me feel like am in the fantasy. BUT instead of being the heroes. You're the EVIL LORD. You're someone that in every role playing game that has as an evil black wearing armor villain.
Pros: Getting to feel what it is like to be evil lord and controlling you're own army .
Cons: The lack of gaining fast currency or gold in the game for upgrades .
