Overlord: Dark Legend

Thunderbolt Games
18 December 2009
  • Excerpt: When playing a videogame with the goal of ultimately conveying your opinion to an audience, it’s usually fruitful to consider what game developers make of the consumers who play their product. When attention to the most minor of details reveals a palpable love of the craft, or when series in-jokes uncover that rarest of gaming treats, some genuine wit, it restores some much-needed faith in the relationship between game creator and game player.

Overlord: Dark Legend Review

GameSpot
13 July 2009
  • Summary: Dark Legend possesses all the sly wit you'd expect from an Overlord game. Too bad the action and the once-engaging puzzles are all dumbed down.
  • Pros: Funny and charming dialogue, Intuitive controls, Varied environments are pleasant to explore
  • Cons: Much, much too easy, Simple puzzles rarely take advantage of minions' abilities, Lame boss fights, Bugs and glitches

Expert Review

Official Nintendo Magazine
14 July 2009
  • Excerpt: On a scale of one to ten, with ten being absolute, world-destroying evil and one being sticking chewing gum under a bus seat, wrecking your sister's room - as happens at the start of this game - hovers at around a 1.5. In Overlord terms, that's really rather reserved, even if the act was conducted using an axe the size of your head.

Soldner: Secret Wars

Fragland
19 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Söldner: Secret Wars zou leuk kunnen zijn als de makers er in slagen om alle bugs eruit te halen, want op dit moment is Söldner een groot onspeelbaar bugfestijn. Het heeft veel potentieel, maar jammer genoeg komt dat er niet uit. Dus op dit moment is het advies: no Söldner, no cry.

Overlord Dark Legend (Wii)

Gamesurf
7 July 2009
  • Conclusion: Overlord Dark Legend è un titolo divertente e spiritoso, che mantiene l'allegria del primo episodio della saga (purtroppo mai approdato in casa Wii) ed un sistema pressoché identico, ma che per strada ha perso qualcosina, soprattutto in termini di libertà di scelte per il giocatore. Il prodotto è comunque decisamente godibile e presenta anche qualche innovazione ben gradita, come la possibilità i “caricare” i serventi ed utilizzarli come bombe, o una trama che piuttosto...

Overlord Dark Legend

Level 7
23 May 2009
  • Conclusion: Bortsett från buggarna och de andra mindre genomarbetade detaljerna, är detta ett ganska roande äventyrsspel. Det är lekfullt och charmigt ondskefullt, och trots att det inte består av särskilt svåra utmaningar kan det bjuda på en hel del underhållning. Kanske något för de yngre och mindre erfarna spelarna.
  • Pros: Wiimoten kommer till sin rätt i ett spel som detta, Snygga miljöer, Minions. Så dumma, men så förbaskat lojala
  • Cons: Irriterande mycket laddningstider, Enformiga bossar, Bara nio timmar speltid, Alldeles för enkelt
