I find I'm mixed on this game. At first it was a great new game mechanic with some good humor. The story was pretty much non existant but that was ok the game play was fresh and new. Then I hit a point where I was burning through minions faster than I could generate them and to keep making progress I was going to have to start doing a lot of grinding type work to increase my hoards and try again. At that point I was done.

The combat feels floaty and off, the minion AI is laughable, and the graphics have aged horribly. Worse still, it fails at it's most basic level, being neither funny, or letting the player be particularly evil. It's not a terrible game, but unless it's going for a couple quid and you really fancy a naffer version of pikmin, I'd give this one a miss.

This is a very charming adventure game in the vein of “Pikmin” that experiments with some of the classic tropes and clichés of the fantasy genre. Although controlling the minions can be frustrating at times and the player character moves like molasses, it isn’t enough to ruin the fun.

You play as an all powerful lord of chaos and evil. Except for instead of chaos and evil, you're forced to do good deeds for unless you want to get awful rewards and make the game a bigger pain in the ♥♥♥ than it already is (which makes the entire premise of the game a lie), and instead of being all powerful, you die in about 3 hits unless you have your annoying goblin minions do everything for you by controlling them in an RTS fashion.

This isn't an RTS, it's a 3rd person game, where the camera is behind your character (who moves like he desperately needs to find a toilet), and in 3rd person games, manually tracing a path for NPCs doesn't work. Neither does setting them up in strategic spots. Neither does selecting between multiple units.

You want a game where you play as an all powerful evil dude? Go track down a copy of Destroy All Humans. You want an RTS game where you can control evil factions? Go get one of the Dawn of War games. But don't buy this piece of ♥♥♥♥.

Nevermind the gameplay, its ok. You can see it was made for other consoles so on pc it is well ok. But the humor and storyline are so funny and original that everyone should simply play it. Specialy those guys who play only good characters in rpgs... Its funny, catchy and you will love it from the start to the end.

I played the first two hours of this and it was simply way too easy, no challenge at all. Therefore it lost all fun. Maybe the game just progresses too slowly, but that itself would be a problem as well.

I would never have bought this game if I hadn't tried the PS3 demo first and i've loved it ever since then, now I get to play it on my laptop whenever and wherever I travel, i'm in heaven! The ability to play as the bad guy is always a plus and the minion humour gets me every time("What, no sheepies?!"). A lot of reviews have this as a 6 or 7 out of 10, but if you love something as I do this game, you will overlook all its minor flaws! This game is honestly one of my favorite games of all time and gets a definite recommend!
Download the demo, you may love it, you may hate it, but give it a go!

Overlord is by far one of my favorite games! My favorite part about it is the minions and you get to control them and do what ever the heck you wanna do! You can choose to help the towns people and get a prize or kill them and get more money and do the mission and get even more coins!! You can do so much more than what I have already said like there are wayyyy to many things to name things about how awesome this game is! This is 2nd on my fav video games, tf2 is still #1!

After finding and summoning 15 red minions I came across a field busting with sheep and farmers.
I spent the next 10 minutes sitting back on my chair inside my dark room with a small, content smile on my face, listening to the screams of man and animal alike as I burned them alive.
10/10

Overlord.
What's bad about this game? Nothing i guess...
It's the best game, if you loved to play this part, because i've played and completed it over 6 times, you have to play Overlord 2 which is more awesomer, more features and stuff.
If you see my profile picture, you might already know if i was Bad Lord or Good Lord.
Yep, i was good lord.

Old game carries its age well.
Hard to find fault with this minion controller. Fun, easy to learn and good length.

Evil Game! Control could be better, but killing sheeps get you pass the sometimes fustrating controls. Overall : Approved!
