Summary: This game is fun. Very fun actually.... but as soon as you get all your minions and are really ready to begin it's over. I finished this game thinking, "What a worthless waste of time. What a waste of money!" I'm rather bitter I even bought it. Definitely rent it before buying - you'll see what I mean. Over before it begins. Did the designers get bored or something? There is no point in buying this game.
Summary: I love the Overlord games. I was really excited to get one for the Wii because the PC version was giving me fits. The game play is great, the story line is hilarious, the duration of the game is WAY TOO SHORT! I beat this game in a few hours, even doing almost all of the side quests,what a bummer, I really wish I would have just rented it.
Excerpt: I like the idea of games which take a different route to the hero stories by allowing you to play as the evil overlord instead of it taking command of the hero. This game has a lot of dark humor, which for people who are new to the overlord series i would actually recommend that you play this game first because it takes place before the first and second games which gives you a bit of background story to overlord and overlord ii.
Pros: fun using wiimote to command minions, excellent story
Summary: I have played this game until the end, so it was good enough to maintain my interest. However, I would not recommend it as it is way too passive in my opinion. Overlord is a fantasy role playing game. The player takes the role of a warrior who has control over gremlin-like creatures known as "minions". The player must thwart the ambitions of his brother and sister, to conquer the lands of his father.
Excerpt: Overlord Dark legend is a spin off of the 2009 title overlord 2 which was released on all other platforms. Overlord is a third person title where the player controls an evil warrior known as the "Overlord" who can command an army of minions to defeat enemies, solve puzzles and travel through the mythical setting in order to become all powerful.
Summary: Overlord is very much an easy to play and funny game. Charging around commanding your minions to slaughter various creatures and smash everything in sight is fun. Being presented with booty by a minion, with an obsequious "for you!", is amusing for a while, but the game has little depth. You very quickly realise that this is aimed at quite a young audience and there isn't enough strategy or tactics to keep adults interested for very long.
nichts neues - kein "Wiederspielwert" schlechter als das Original

Summary: Angepriesen als "exklusive Wii-Entwicklung" und "ein brandneues Action-Adventure" hatte ich recht hohe Erwartungen an diesen "Vorgänger" von Overlord (das ich auf dem PC habe und das mir super gefällt) Leider ist an diesem Spiel absolut NIX neues - die Story wird zwar anders verpackt aber wie in Overlord ist man damit beschäftigt die diversen Schergen-Nester zu suchen und dabei der ultimative böse Herrscher über die komplette Umgebung zu werden, die Schergen haben die...
