Overlord is one of the games that sticks in your memory for all reason you can never quite remember until you play it again. It’s charming nature and settings, the witty writing and character behaviours really set it apart from anything else upon its release and offered something really new without taking it’s self seriously.

Fun game, really makes you think at points, like accidently blowing up your minions, accidently getting eaten or accidently chopping a villagers head offf ;)

A very enjoyable game, great humor and a fun story, pc controls could be better, but overall a game worth every penny.
There is abit of customization and the building up your keep to give extra flavor, but the true joy is in the minions and their comments, and their wacky choice og gear and weapons.

3rd person, action, adventure, hack and slash RPG. In this game you play as Overlord, and command different kind of imps in battles. Four kinds of imps, with their own strengths and weaknesses. You are very vulnerable without your army of imps, though you can do decent amount of damage. Game has plenty rich and colorful environments, with many missions available. Story is basic and linear with good/bad choices you can make on the way, that will shape your Overlord to look more badasss if you go evil. You have your own Tower "base", which you can pimp out, by buying statues, banners, room accessories, etc. At some point in game you'll even get your very own Mistress, with some more darker and voluptuous surprise ahead. Game has decent visuals and good texture quality for 2007. Voice acting is good, animations are basic, unit control can sometimes be wonky. Game has some funny moments and humor here and there, and generally is great and fun experience.

A hidden gem,
no seriously this is one of the best games I have ever played. The reasons? The minions obviously! They are just hilarious! My favorite part of them is the fact that they can loot equipment so you can have 50 brown fighter minions that look unique and barbaric. Did I mention that they have a hierarchy system too? The strongest minion (and probably your favorite) always goes next to the dark lord and the other line up behind him so at the furthest back you have those newly spawned grunts. You must be careful about the minions that you do care about because if they die they are gone forever. I once had my favorite minion who was wearing a golden crown which he looted from a fat hafling king get smashed by a succubus, oh god did I miss him!

I originally got the game on disk hence the play time.
