GameSpot
13 July 2009
  • Summary: My First Overlord would not have been a marketable title for the first Overlord game to land on the Wii, but it would have been an apt one. Overlord: Dark Legend is a catchier name, of course, but it doesn't prepare you for the watered-down adventure in this passable but dissatisfying package. Dark Legend gets the franchise basics down, sending you and a crowd of hysterical demonic minions into the countryside to wreak havoc on your rivals.
  • 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

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

Level 7
26 August 2009
  • Summary: Med ett illvilligt sinne och ett g�ng entusiastiskt tjattrande unders�tar i spetsen �r det �terigen dags att g�ra livet surt f�r grannskapet. Overlord: Dark legends �r en prequel till originalspelet fr�n 2007, och h�r axlar spelets antihj�lte manteln som Overlord p� sin 16:e f�delsedag. Guidad av Gnarl, ett ondsint litet troll, l�r han sig hur en Overlord ska bete sig och snart b�rjar en liten arm� av sm�troll ty sig till den nye m�staren.
  • Pros: Wiimoten kommer till sin r�tt i ett spel som detta, Snygga milj�er, Minions. S� dumma, men s� f�rbaskat lojala
  • Cons: Irriterande mycket laddningstider, Enformiga bossar, Bara nio timmar speltid, Alldeles f�r enkelt

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...
