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):

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.

Took over the world and caused the sky to turn dark purple due to bieng corrupt.

Managed to get trapped in hell aswell.

10/10 would play a grimmer sequel with blood or something, or atleast more bashing of enemies
