Overlord

Fragland

  • 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.

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.

  • 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?

  • 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.

Overlord (Xbox 360) Review

411mania.com
6 August 2007
  • 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.

X360/PC Review - 'Overlord'

WorthPlaying
2 August 2007
  • Summary: In the game’s seriously warped fantasy world, players will become the Overlord and get first-hand experience of how “absolute power corrupts absolutely". You could be a regular run-of-the-mill Overlord.

Overlord for Xbox 360

UncleGamer Radio
27 July 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.
