Summary: Pros - Game is easy to pick up and play; great art direction and sense of humor (minions are cute, charming, and hilarious at times, as are NPCs); difficulty level not punishing; lampoons Lord of the Rings and other fantasy elements brilliantly. Cons - Charm and humor begin to wear off after several hours of play time; camera feels as though it is working against you at times; feels quite a bit like Pikmin for Gamecube/Wii in its puzzle-solving elements (maybe that's a...
Summary: Although the game is about being as bad and destructive as you can be, its sort of cute in a fun twisted way. The game has PG-13 type limits of how bad you can be so it's relatively benign. Its relatively easy to figure out if you're anything of a gamer. Tired of first person shooters? Try this one for the heck of it.
Summary: I bought this game a few weeks ago and it wasn't what I expected it to be. I like playing a lot of RPG's and shooters but this game was not my type. The game had good advertisement and I thought the concept they grasped onto was a brilliant idea with controlling hordes of minions and taking over land. But there wasn't much interactivity.
Summary: I really liked this game, it was cheap as well. the best part were the minions, red, green, brown, and blue. Each having their own ability to help along in the game. Having the option to have zero corruption or be totally corrupt plays a part in how your Overlord will look in the end. Would give a higher score but the controls were frustrating at times.
Summary: This game had a really fun premise. I liked FABLE so I liked the idea of minions, evil bidding, and anti-hero game play. This game was really fun overall. It became frustrating with the awkward control of the minions (the best part of the game). Buy it used. You have fun. For a little while at least.
Summary: I loved the gme at first... then it really got old. was really fun doing whatever you wanted but you were foten lost and found yourself going in circles quite often. really isnt a short game but it definately loses its touch after the fiorst few hours played. If they would have added a few more things to do it would be better.
Summary: This is one of those silly games that keeps you laughing from the minute you pick up the controller, to the minute you put it down. Although there is the misconception that this is like Dungeon Keeper, it is actually a very unique game. The plot of the game is that you are an evil overlord of a ruined kingdom. You are controlling both the overlord and his little army of minions. You can upgrade your armour and weapons by sacrificing your minions to a forge.
Summary: Are the graphics good? No, they're great. Does this offer a free roaming role playing experience? Yes, but only when you are not lost. (which is often) The characters are very unique, even humorous. You will find yourself living in a castle with a funny little gesture guy, some servants, and a wife. But the interaction is limited. You can't talk to them. They don't do anything really? But you do get to spend earned money on decorating your castle.
