NOTE:
Also see my Overlord: Raising Hell Review because a lot of my game time was spent there. (Because it contained both Overlord 1 and the Raising Hell Expansion):
http://steamcommunity.com/id/miyumiayase/recommended/12710

TL:DR? See Conclusion

INTRODUCTION:
Overlord is a third-person action/adventure game developed by Triumph Studios and published by Codemasters. The game was originally released for the PC Platform and the Xbox 360 in 2007 with a PS3 release the following year. The game's plot primarily serves as a parody of generic fantasy themed worlds. The game also heavily relies on its primary game feature called 'Minion Control' where the player does 20% of the work and the other 80% by ordering small goblin/gremlin/imp like creatures collectively called 'Minions' to do stuff for you.

The game puts the player in the horned helm of a recently resurrected warrior whose name is never mentioned but is generally known to everyone as “The Overlord.” Having been recently revived, he is informed by an old minion named Gnarl that a group of adventurers killed the old Overlord, ransacked the Overlord's Tower and 'freed' the previously controlled domain of his predecessor. As the new Overlord, the player is now tasked to take back the lost territories and exact revenge on the unsuspecting 'heroes'.

PROS:
+ The graphics, although aged, still looks good. The art style is reminiscent of Fable 1 which was nice for its time.
+ Interesting new concept of minion control which was more or less implemented well
+ Great minion control mechanic despite some minor annoyances
+ Dark humor with obvious parodies and easter-eggs
+ Good weapon and armor design but...(See CON #6)
+ Good story with a good plot twist
+ Nice voice acting (that goes well with the humor) and sound effects
+ Good level design with a lot of environment variation
+ Fun little mini-games and puzzles
+ Healthy game time

CONS:
- Cutscene animations needs improvement
- No Overlord's Tower defense quest (I expected that adventurers would attack my tower and I would have to setup defenses but no such event happened)
- The Overlord's Tower has little to offer aside from the Dungeon and the Forge: Most of the tower upgrades are cosmetic with no bearing on character progression.
- Can't talk to the NPCs outside of quests and stories: Disappointing specially if you want to know more about them or want to ask questions
- Limited corruption events / triggers
- Limited selection of weapons and armor
- Can't do much in terms of exploration
- Fixed camera that sometimes bug out when sweeping minions

CONCLUSION:
GREAT GAME and comes highly RECOMMENDED. Overlord is a game that came as a surprise on how good it actually is. It may not be a Triple-A title but it certainly delivers a fun and enjoyable experience with its interesting game mechanic, good story backed up by good level design, good humor and an overall wonderful experience.

It does suffer from a few flaws, one of which is that it lacks essential RPG elements that would have made the experience much more entertaining. Another issue I had with the game is that, aside from the main quest and story, there is virtually nothing to do aside from minor Tower upgrades and occasional dungeon farming. The game also starts a bit slow, but after the first few levels, it starts to pick up the pace. Despite these flaws however, the game is still an enjoyable experience that is both well paced and well constructed and is enough to get your money's worth.

I can easily RECOMMEND this game at FULL price because its relatively cheap but instead I urge you to BUY THE OVERLORD COMPLETE PACK which contains Overlord 1, Overlord: Raising Hell (expansion), and Overlord 2. If, for some reason, you don't want Overlord 2 then purchase both Overlord 1 and Overlord: Raising Hell because the expansion does add a substantial chuck of story to the main title and serves as a prologue to the events of Overlord 2.

After 20 hours i managed to finished the game.

Let's start with the most important.

I suggest that game for the lovers of RPG games but it's also a good strategic game where you can command a mini-army of minions,little monsters ready to follow your orders.
In the game are present 4 types of minions.

Brown Minions - The best minions for fighting,they got the highest health,armor and damage,but beside that,nothing special.

Red Minions - Ranged Minions wich attacks by throwing fireballs to the enemies,they got extremly low health and armor,and alone they are kinda weak,they are very good in groups,by attacking enemies while the brown minions defend them,they are also fire-resistant and can absorb fire from certain paths to leave you proceed.

Green Minions - Close combat minions,low attack but extremly deadly in backstabs,they can also turn invisible and are poison resistant,allowing them to destroy noxious-plants. Great for ambushes and traps.

Blue Minions - They are literally the worse for combat,they got extremly low health,armor and attack.The good side is the fact that they can actually swim in the water without drowning,that may allow them to follow you trough rivers and swamps,they also got some magical powers,wich allow them to resurrect dead minions,and they are the only kind of character wich can actually hurt magical beings like ghosts or whisps.


You can control an army of minions by spawning them from magical-holes linked to your tower,to spawn minions you will need certain lifeforce that can be gained by killing enemies (For example,if you will kill sheeps you can gain brown lifeforce,wich you need for spawning brown minions,and if you are going to kill fire bugs you gain red lifeforce,to spawn red minions) You can stock as many lifeforce you want but you have a limit by the minions that can follow you,you can increase the limit by collecting objects,by myself,i reached 35 max minions.

Minions can also collect stuff from the ground like weapons,axes,piece of armors,helmets to increase their power and attack but they will also collect useless stuff like broken pumpinks.

The minions will always give you the lifeforce they harvest and the gold they found by pillaging,we need to mention that the main character is extremly weak and you will almost-always need your minions.

Good/Bad sides

+Interesting Story full of surprises

+You may choose certain paths trough the story to determine if you are going to be an Evil Hero or an Evil Evil (that's shown by your corruption level wich increases for each innocent creature killed or with each extremly evil thing you do)

+Detailed Minions

+Original concept

+Funny story and lots of funny scenes

+You got your own mistress OwO and a jester (I named him box-sack)

- The character never talks (All you can hear are some grunts from the helmet from time to time when you swing your weapon)

-Linear levels (Even if you may choose to take some paths,you have to follow linear levels,wich imposes you to go trough certain areas and complete certain quests)

-Extremly poor character customization (You can forge new helmets,weapons and armor by sacrificing your minions into a smelter,but there are only 3 types of weapon,1 helmet,1 armor and 3 materials for each one of those)

-Main Character fight system extremly poor (All you can do are 12 spells,and swing your weapon,without making any other types of attacks,you just swing your weapon in front of you and deal some damage,nothing more)


Now that i finished Overlord i'm going straight and definitely to play Overlord 2. Buy that game,you won't regret it.

Building an evil empire is hard work. Fortunately, minions love to do trivial tasks such as carrying heavy things, beating sheep to death with sticks and blades alike, putting stuff on their heads, immolating halflings, and smashing, well, everything in sight. It makes the tedium of smiting and being feared much more enjoyable.

Between Steam and my console version of this game, I probably have about 100 hours in it, and every playthrough was fun. The four kinds of minions (conveniently color coded for an Xbox controller, which I do recommend using a controller given how laid back this game is, but it is hardly required) add a great layer of strategy to the game if you take the time to utilize them to their maximum efficiency. Of course, you can always just send them all rushing in to smash smash smash, and they will happily die for you, but they will die quite often this way. And you just don't want that when they're so adorably evil. Unless maybe you're just extra evil, and that's actually encouraged around here.

I would not call this game particularly challenging (although Legendary mode added in the Raising Hell expansion surely amps up the difficulty), but it is pretty forgiving overall. This is definitely a pick up and play game that is not going to drown you in the details of lore, equipment, crafting, etc., but it has just the right amount of strategy involved to keep it interesting while allowing it to remain a game you can lounge back and play just to unwind and enjoy the ride.

Fact is, sometimes you just want to be the bad guy. This game lets you be a brutal tyrant, but does so in such a charming way it just feels so right to be evil. So pick it up, build a horde, claim a mistress, restore your Dark Tower to all it's inglorious..er...glory, literally fill a room with gold and treasure, and sit back on your sweet evil throne, sipping wine made of fermented peasant tears, and debate how to punish your godawful jester.

For years I have looked at this game on the shop shelfs and my friends always told me it looked like ♥♥♥♥. Well I halfway through the first game now and well this game is awesome. The basics of the game are that you controll your minons into battle for good or for evil whilst rebuilding your destroyed home. 9/10 the minons sometimes dont control aswell as you would want.

I played Overlord back when it first came out, and remembered enjoying it quite a bit. I was excited to see it on sale here on Steam with its addon and sequel, so I picked them up dirt cheap.

The game is pretty fun, with the story being staged with you in the role of the villain out to subjugate any and all you come in contact with. You get the option to choose between good and evil, but it's more accurately evil and really, really evil. The game play is fun, though a bit frustrating when you can't quite find how to get to the next area. I realized how much I've come to rely on the objective markers in newer games (Skyrim and such), when I had to actually think about where to go. Once you get all four minion types, the game really starts to move, because more paths to success are open to you.

The primary negative to the game, I feel, is the minion control when using the keyboard and mouse. Controlling minions is often clunky, especially if you are standing just a bit too close to something you want them to interact with. It is exceedingly difficult to control the minions when they have to lure enemies to certain places or take timed explosives to certain points before they detonate (both happen a lot late in the game). It was really hard to move around while directing a minion, which made a couple of challenges lose their entertainment value quickly.

Besides those few specific examples, however, I found the game to quite fun all these years after my first playthrough. The graphics are dated, and the story is very shallow, but it was worth the couple of bucks I spent on it. Just remember you are playing an older game when you start!

Do you enjoy intricate Real Time Strategy games that build upon the well established mechanics of classics such as Starcraft and Command & Conquer?

This game is neither of these, however.

Would recommend.

This game is great if you like LOTR or Pikmin and completely freaking amazing if you love both! The great thing about this is you get to play as "Sauron" and control little smeagol looking minions. There are 4 different kinds of minions, brown, red, blue and green. Each type of minion is needed to complete almost every mission. You can also sacrifice hundreds of minions to empower weapons and such. Somehow, strangely enough, the minions are cute as they will pick up random things (like pumpkins) and wear them as armor, use zombie arms to attack whatever (yes this game has zombies), and keep gold crowns for themselves. Some tactics are needed when fighting large amounts of opponents or bosses. It's also cute (and makes you lazy as hell), that the minions will bring you gold, "xp" (used to summon more minions) and potions and offer them to you. (aka your a minion god to them). It's a lot of fun and well worth every freaking penny. My favorite part? Kicking the Minion Jester around.

Pros:
-A wonderful blend of LOTR and Pikmin (and zombies)
-Amazing graphics (think Fable on steriods)
-Great music
-Fun interactions
-Wonderful style of game
-You get to be as evil as you want (and that's the point of the game)

Cons:
-What cons? lol
-Maybe casting spells can be a bit of a pain.....but that's what minions are for. XD

99/10 I would slaughter the world again, and again, and again.

This is an awesome game which u don't have to fight with your own hands instead just command your minions to do your dirty work. This is not your typical hero game but as an evil overlord who does nothing but conquer the lands and the women. LOL
