Summary: Just when you think the Wii has nothing to offer for the core gamer, along comes Overlord- Dark Legend, and I must say that it's a better experience than it's Xbox360 counterparts; at least in my opinion. Graphics- Actually some of the best graphics for Wii. This game resembles "Fable" for the Original Xbox due to it's "glowy" appearance. Lots of color, the Overlord himself is detailed quite nicely and the graphical effects are pretty good.

Summary: I don't like alot of the games out there. I'm not into first person shooters or racing games. I originally got this game for my 13 year old son, but I decided to give it a try. The dialogue is funny, with snarky comments and statements you wouldn't expect to hear from the "hero" in a game. The minions are cute and really amusing. The game is easy to play, and I got so wrapped up in it I didn't want to give it to my son. I'm picking up another copy for myself.
Summary: I rated this game based on my 10 year old son's opinion. My son loves it, but my DH has banned him from playing it. Why? Because there is cursing in it and the intro to it tells you how you will be a great evil person and love killing and smashing things. "Evil always finds a way". Now, this did not bother me as much as my husband. But then I saw AND heard the cursing (the written lines are said outloud). My kids don't watch stuff above PG and they don't hear us cursing.
Summary: I really wanted to review Overlord:Dark Legend because no one has done so, and I think this is a good game, and I want anyone who's thinking about buying it to know that. This is my first review, so I'll try my best. Ok, well first off just a little about me: I'm a 24 yr old female, and I'm not what you'd call a "hardcore gamer" or anything, but I do like QUALITY games. I'm new to the Overlord series. That being said, I definitely think this title is a good one.
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. The controls on this ...
Pros: fun using wiimote to command minions, excellent story
Summary: I purchased this game for my 2 boys aged 9 and 12 but unfortunately there was no multiplayer mode however there are 3 save files so my kids can have there own save file each. This is a great game very fun and very similar to 'THE LAST STORY' but at a fraction of the price. The music and graphics are pretty good too but only one problem with this game is it keeps on freezing even though i purchased a brand new sealed copy, its been played for around 15 hours now and so...
