Overlord Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
3 June 2010
  • 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. The game has two alignments evil and very evil, but, in spite of the Overlord’s ultimate ambition, the game might as well have stuck with plain old good and evil.

Lips Review

  • Conclusion: Hooking up a compatible player with “open” song files enables you to search your device’s track list within the game and move selected songs into the “library” from which you’ll sing. Also, those songs play from the X360’s hard drive, so you won’t have to keep hooking up your MP3 player to include those tracks in your gameplay.

  • Conclusion: With Overlord, Triumph Studios has quietly crafted a potential sleeper hit that is refreshing, meticulously designed, humorous at times, and most importantly, fun to spend hours with. The introduction of minion control opens up a world of possibilities for sequels or other franchises to copy. Meshing genres is not a new concept by any stretch of the imagination, but successful executions are worth their weight in butchered sheep.
  • Pros: Minion control is a blast, Strategic gameplay reveals itself, Voiceovers can be humorous
  • Cons: Fixed-camera can be a beast, Needs more save points

  • Conclusion: No, the average adult will be amused by the game’s wit for only so long, but the younger crowd is and has taken a liking to it, and for good reason. Snappy humor, easy gameplay, and the chance to control adorably sickening creatures. What more could a kid ask for? With a bit of work done on the controls and gameplay, this refreshingly different title could have hit excellence.

  • Conclusion: Finally something different turns up and it’s been worth the wait as we’ve been given a unique game that doesn’t take itself too seriously while at the same time offering up an innovative challenge. The multiplayer lets the side down somewhat, but to my mind this game was always meant to be best enjoyed solo, well, if you don’t include your devoted minions of course.

Overlord (Xbox 360) Review

14 January 2008
  • Summary: Despite all of the gameplay faults this is a great game. If they can make a sequel that fixes those faults then this would be an excellent game to own but as it is it’s simply a great game that has more charm in one little minion then most games manage in the whole package.

Overlord for Xbox 360

UncleGamer Radio
12 December 2007
  • Excerpt: Overlord is a nice twist on the hero action game.  Rather than begin as an eager young talent drawn into a quest to rid the land of evil, you instead begin as an ancient bringer of chaos bent on establishing your iron rule.  So far, I like it.
