Summary: I had high hopes for this game. I had heard how good Overlord was on the Xbox, and bought this with that in mind. I knew they were different games, but thought I would be getting something similar. Unfortunately, it's much different. In the other game, as I understand it, you can choose your path and decide how evil you want to be. Not so in this game. Here, you are "told" over and over how evil your guy is. But it never shows. You don't actually DO anything evil at all.
Summary: This game really is a lot of fun if you have a good sense of humor. It's amusing to watch your minions hand you things saying "For the Overlord" and "For You, Master". Or picking something up, putting it on their head, dancing and saying, "For Me" or "That's Mine". Essentially you're the Evil Overlord with a bunch of rat-like minions. While you can destroy things yourself, you usually order your minions to do it for you while your character stands nearby and watches.
Summary: The basic premise of Overlord is that you play the role of an evil Overlord attempting to restore your kingdom in a very Pikmin-esque fashion. Having never played a game in the Overlord series before, I was really surprised and drawn in by the presentation and storyline. PROS: +++ clever presentation and humor +++ lush graphics and designs +++ character designs are entertaining caricatures +++ great voice acting with a provincial medieval Europe feel to it, similar to...
Conclusion: The Game play in this is a lot of fun, the way in which you control minions is a Great way to add new challenge to the game play. The story line is fairly good, make yourself Overlord then protect the kingdom, there is a good amusement value to the game in general and it will leave you smiling as you play.
Excerpt: Not as much fun as it could have been. The camera and control issues marr what could have been a great game. The game is slow to get going. Combat is hit and miss and there is a great deal of backtracking. Little King's Story is a much better RTS adventure game.
