Summary: Overlord, from Codemasters and Triumph Studios, is an action RPG where you take on the role of an evil overlord who has control over hordes of vicious minions. Your main objective through the game is to destroy everything you come across, and if that doesn’t sound fun, I don’t know what is.
Excerpt: Although Overlord was often compared with the game Dungeon Keeper, I can’t really agree with this. Ok, you have the minions to command, but that’s where the resemblance stops if you ask me. Overlord is a game apart from all others and on top of that it’s great fun to play.
Conclusion: Mass Effect 2: Overlord features a nice mix of gameplay elements, punctuating shooting segments with scripted set-piece events and smooth vehicular exploration. You even solve some light puzzles in between exciting encounters and tension-building travel, such as one in which you use a console to...
Pros: Excellent sound effects and music augment the sense of dread, The Hammerhead vehicle is fun to pilot, Fantastic closing sequence, Interior and exterior areas alike look wonderful.
Cons: The Hammerhead goes underutilized, A few flaws carried over from the main game.
Excerpt: Overlord may allow you to play as a baddie, but whilst slaying sheep and taking over the world is pretty nasty business, rescuing people and doing other good deeds is certainly not, it’s just far too pleasant for an apparent cruel bad guy.
Excerpt: Tyranny is great, isn’t it? Some pillaging here, execution there and all in time for a tankard of mead and giant turkey leg in your twisted castle. Overlord deserves your hard-earned cash with its unique style of gameplay which combinies hard-hitting weaponry and magic.
