Informace o hře

How evil can you get?
Discover how corruptible you are in Overlord, the twisted fantasy action adventure where you can be evil (or really evil). In the game's seriously warped fantasy world, players will become the Overlord and get first-hand experience of how absolute power corrupts absolutely. You could be a regular run-of-the-mill Overlord. However, with incredible power at your disposal and a team of evil-minded impish critters, the Minions, on hand to do your bidding, how will you resist the temptation to be wonderfully despotic?!
Go deeper into the Overlord's twisted world as the single-player expansion content opens a series of hellish new levels, each a supernatural abyss for the game's five kingdoms: Mellow Hills, Evernight, Heaven's Peak, the Golden Halls and the Ruborian Desert. Access to each abyss is via a portal, which opens once a kingdom has been successfully conquered and the previous ruler banished to a personal hell within. However it's not just the fallen heroes that have been dragged into the abyss: the Overlord's newly loyal peasants have also been taken down into hell too.
With the undead denizens of each abyss on the attack and threatening the Overlord's reign above ground, there's only one thing for it: assemble your minion army, descend into each abyss and embark on a fresh wave of tyranny in order to return the serfs to their homelands, defeat the fallen heroes once and for all, and claim the throne of each kingdom's underworld.
INCLUDES THE OVERLORD CHALLENGE PACK:
Come and have a go if your Overlord's hard enough. All new pillaging fun with seven additional online multiplayer maps, including the competitive ‘Capture the Maiden’ map and ‘Protect Your Power’, where players must defend the Overlord's tower against waves of enemy attack.
  • THINK EVIL, BREED EVIL, CONTROL ALL! Get in the action and become the Overlord, the all powerful dark lord with a horde of minions to command and a land to conquer.
  • CONTROL A HORDE OF MINIONS Slavish and loyal they'll smash, destroy, kill and steal anything for you. Your word is law.
  • BECOME THE OVERLORD Do you want fear, respect, gold and power? Become the most powerful being in the world by any means necessary.
  • CONQUER A TWISTED FANTASY WORLD Show the Seven Heroes, demonic Halflings, and Rabid Unicorns who's boss.

This game is absolutely fantastic, The game is fun, the puzzles are challenging and full of delight, the minions are so charming and Gnarl is just so fun to listen to. The Overlord himself can either be a benevolent ruler, or a dark and corrupted master of evil. The gameplay is smooth and easy to handle, the controls are super easy to learn and get down. I can't give this game enough praise, the bad thing i have to say, is that the graphics are...eh. But for me that doesn't take away from the experience! I like the oldish graphics, it gives the game more charm. The whacky and zany voices are so fun to listen to. I found myself talking like Gnarl and some of the peasants, i did enjoy the experience. The sound track is simple and catchy and alos, EPIC the tunes can go from cheery and chipper, to dark and gloomy. This game was a serious blast.THEN i bought Raising Hell and my mind was filled with wonder as i took on the task to delve into the depths of what is basically Hell. It was glorious. And you too can experience the glory! Buy Overlord and be sure to Buy Raising Hell! DO IT NOW!!!!!

10/10
BUY IT!

I'll always love this game. One of my favorite of all time. I use to play it way back on the Xbox 360 before I got it on steam. Solid puzzles and hoard mechanic combat. Very Funny story, and solid characters. Gotta love a game where you can play as the bad guy too.

The Overlord game is one terrific piece of work. Raising hell adds 5 new areas with puzzles and a boss fight, each dungeon rewards you with a unique equipment to craft.

Still, this game has everything. Humour, a well done script, morality choices made fun, mayhem, minions (not the yellow ones from tv), puzzles and so on. Each area of the game makes fun of the stereotypes of fantasy literature, movies or games in a sweet way all the time being narrated by the minion lord Gnarl. Also, the sqeaky voices of the minions are as warming as the purring of a kitten and you get to decorate your evil tower.

I dare say that this expansion is better than the main game.
Not only is the humor top notch, the gameplay also steps up the level
as more (but also more fun) challenging enemies are introduced alongside
some very inventive enviroments.

Positives
  • The writing is the meat on the bone. In this case there's a lot of meat and it's witty and funny
  • New hell zones are inventive and fun to play in.
  • They upped the difficulty of the puzzles which makes it necessary to plan your actions instead of the all-out approach that was common in the main game.
  • Nice tie-up of your story and the eternal suffering in hell for the heroes is satisfying.

Negative
All the negatives of the original game are back in full glory!
  • The controls can be crappy at times and sometimes seem to get stuck while controlling the minions.
  • Minion AI is still derby (Suicide aplenty)
  • The game feels badly optimized at times due to framedrops and laggy controls.


Conclusion
Forget about Overlord II or the sad excuse for an overlord game which shall not
be named that was released recently, THIS is the superior Overlord experience and
is what should be played when you are in need of some ill-mannered havoc.

This is a combined review for the main game AND the Raising hell expansion pack.

Overlord is a great game where you basically play a parody version of Lord of the Rings, where you are an Overlord that looks a lot like Sauron and you have to use your minions, ie orcs/goblins or whatever to go and kill humans, halfflings, dwarves and elves.

It's a very clever take on the genre, the humour and story added a great deal to the experience for me. I wont spoil the story but having played the game through a second time I got all the little bits and pieces of hidden things going on, so it's more in depth than just running around and killing things.

The expansion pack blends seemlessly with the game, if you have both DO INSTALL Raising Hell straight away, as you can do the missions from it in amongst the missions from the original game, I highly recommend that.

The game mechanic of using your minions to attack your opponents, and pick up power ups etc works well, but sometimes their pathfinding is a bit average.

Overall, very funny and fun, only negatives are your minions not always obeying commands and some of the expansion levels use new mechanics that don't work well at all..(when you have to 'mow the grass' go online to get some hints, it will save you from smashing your computer).

Don't let the negatives turn you away though.

Original game 9/10
Raising Hell 8/10

-lack of checkpoints
-People don't know this game much. I mean the Devs should have done some advertisments. when U play Skyrim, U can tell a friend about something impressive happened for U in the game and they get what U mean. but U can't talk about this game with everybody cause ...

Overlord je jedna z nejlepších her vůbec, co jsem kdy hrála. Doslova srdcovka. Příjemné ovládání, výborný příběh a celou dobu vtipný nadhled. Jediné, co bych přidala je mapa. Jinak však jde o spousty logických úkolů kombinovaných s akcí. Ovšem když si člověk chce jen zarelaxovat, může se věnovat bojům v aréně a nebo jen farmařit šípís a vylepšovat výzbroj a výstroj.
Pro celou hru je však největším přínosem její hratelnost. Nejde jen o bezduché pobíjení, ale o plánování a vybírání nejvhodnější rasy pochlebovačných skřetů, kteří žijí proto, aby se zavděčili svému pánu. A ještě si můžeme zvolit, jestli chcem hrát za hodného zlého pána nebo opravdu zlého zlouna :-)
Doporučuji všem, co mají rádi černý humor a při hrách používají mozek.

This is a review of Overlord and it's expansion pack, Raising Hell.

Gameplay- 8.5
The Gameplay in Overlord™: Raising Hell is fun and addicting, swarming minions on an enemy, watching your tower grow and restore to it's former glory, seeing your character grow in power and watching the cosmetic changes that depending on your morality alignment. Me myself am a big fan of watching progression happen in video, especially when you're able your see it in your character, your HQ ,and your loyal minions.
The Combat in Overlord™: Raising Hell is a very odd thing. You yours elf don't do a lot of the combat, your Minions handle that ground. Which is odd considering this is a Action/Adventure-JRPG, the closest game I have seen to this combination in genre is Pickmin, which I'm not a very big fan of. But the combat had a few flaws which I'm going to point out. Sweeping the minions with my mouse felt very awkward, almost like talking your cat on walk through a cat-nip factory, because my Minions always were attrachted to some random-♥♥♥ crates and barrels, which ended up killing them, and if you have played this game, the life-force in which the minions are born, is a time consuming process in the tower dungeon. Another Problem of mine with the combat was that the minions never retreated fast enough to get them out of the danger, there was always a delay and the minions just stood there! My last and final complaint dosenn't only hinder the combat system, it hinders every aspect of the game and that is the walking speed. I swear about 3 hours of my gametime was just walking around! There is no way to improve the pace of the Overlord. But even with all of my complaints about aspects of the gameplay, it's still very solid and very fufilling!

Graphics- 7
I don't judge a game by it's graphics, oh wait I do, well ♥♥♥♥ alright I'm a hypocrite! This Games graphics aged pretty well, THe voice acting is mediocre, but the jokes and dark-silly text save it.
Overall Rating- 8 Very Solid Fun Game, It's only like $10 bucks for the two items so I definatly reccomend this game!

Overlord: Raising Hell

Overlord Raising Hell is an amazing game with lovable little minions. In the game you are the second overlord (after the first has left) and you must help your army of minions destroy the pitiful disgusting forces of good BLEH!

Gameplay

In overlord you start off with learning how to control a small group of minions. There are 4 different kind of minions you will find though the game. to summon a minions you need orbs of their specific colour which can be gained by killing enemies.

As you continue you will gain the ability to purchase items to improve your amazing dark tower and to improve yourself.

Throughout the game your goal is to become evils favourite son by commiting tasks such as killing villages, killing off elves etc. (good times i know) You will also have choices within the story which will help you reach your evil goal.

Minions

The minions here deserve their own perfect panel. Within the game as previously mentioned there are 4 different types of minions, each with ups and downs.

Brown - Can wear picked up items and is your basic unit

+easy to get orbs
+capable of wearing armour and picking up weapons


Green - Stealthy backstabbers who deal high damage

+ can turn invisible when guarding a location
+ back stabbing :D

Red - Ranged fireball chucking units

+ only ranged unit
+ chucks fire

- low health

Blue - Blue is the only type of minions that can revive other minions (if he gets to them in time) and is the only minion capable of traveling through water

+ can swin
+ can revive

- weak in combat

Raising Hell

As you can guess raising hell is in fact not the base game but rather a dlc that allows you to launch it (hence why i have 0 hours on overlord). In raising hell after you defeat an areas "hero" a gate will spawn which will send you to what seems like hell. You will see your former enemies being tortured and punished while you must go and get stones to control these amazing hell resorts. And after you shall face the true keeper of this hell-like realm whom i shall not name (because i have forgotten him) and you shall receive the true ending of overlord.

Rating

Pros
+ fun gameplay
+ fun little minions
+ minions pick up garbage for you
+ succubus
+ each area has a different feel and the storyline is fun
+ amazing ending

Cons
- may become a bit repetitive ( i got nothing else bad to say)


Final Throughts

For me Overlord Raising Hell has been an amazing game which I was able to truly embrace. I enjoyed every moment of gameplay along with the storyline. This game is one of my top picks and is truly a game you must try.

Final Rating 10/10

This is a review for the expansion: Raising Hell. For a review of the original Overlord, please reference my steam review at http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197980576540/recommended/11450

Raising Hell's storyline takes place after the events in the original Overlord. Abyss Gates are spotted in each of the lands that you have previously explored and present a twisted, more hellish version of each area. The seven sins of hell come to mind when playing through these areas. Your goal is to go to each Abyss and take control of it. You will also find moulds in these zones to create new and interesting equipment.

The unique armor and weapons added in Raising Hell present new abilities that otherwise would not be available to you; however, the new equipment is woefully underpowered. If you already have a full set of upgraded Arcanium gear, you're better off ignoring these new items.

Although the expansion adds much appreciated content to an already outstanding game, it does little to nothing to fix the flaws of the original. Trying to control your minions to solve some of the new puzzles can be frustrating. In particular, there is one puzzle that you must sweep your minions left and right to mow a lawn. Don't complete it fast enough and you have to start over. Nothing tells you that you failed due to time so you could end up like me looking it up online to figure out what I am supposed to do. This happened about two or three times for me. Guidance isn't exactly clear on some of the puzzles.

If you enjoyed the original, this game will be well worth your money. If you are unsure of buying both Raising Hell and the original Overlord in one go, do not fret. Your saved game on Steam of the original will transfer over into the Steam expansion so you can enjoy the content at your leisure.

The Good:

1) Good graphics and atmosphere
2) Gameplay revolves around you controlling your "minions" to defeat enemies and solve puzzles.
3)Controls really well however the game was designed around controller support. Never tried the K/M
4) Lengthy adventure
5) Well designed levels keep things fresh and interesting
6) Cute and charming story
7) Bonus DLC is more creative than the actual game

The Bad:

1) The game at times can feel repetitive.
2) The game can be frustrating at times especially if you loose a lot of minions at once forcing you to harvest more.
3) Seems a bit too long given the nature of the game, I just wanted it to end around 13 hours in.
4) Minions sometimes don't really follow your commands causing needless death.

Conclusion:

The game is worth checking out and if you enjoyed pikmin from Nintendo you should somewhat enjoy this game. Both have similiar gameplay elements yet vastly different design.

TL:DR? See Conclusion

INTRODUCTION:
Overlord: Raising Hell is the official expansion to the 2007 game 'Overlord'. This expansion was released on the PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 all on 2008. The game promises new content for the single player experience by adding additional plot, more levels and new enemy types, new items, and new creative mini-games.

The game takes place several months after the events of Overlord 1 and serves as the prologue to the events that would lead up to Overlord 2. Having finally restored his dominion over the land and exacting revenge on the adventurers, the Overlord now faces a new threat to his rule when portals to another dimension starts opening around his territories. Upon investigating the nearest portal, the Overlord discovers that his 'loyal subjects' are attempting to flee into the portals with no intention of coming back. The Overlord now ventures into one of these dark portals in an attempt to conquer whatever is in the other side and 'persuade' his followers to come back. Little did he know however, that the portals were just the beginning of a much sinister plot by a being far much more powerful than him.

PROS:
+ The core gameplay of the original title is still intact
+ Good new story that adds several hours to the game time
+ New enemy types are fun to fight
+ Each portal has a story of their own
+ Fun new mini-games and simple but satisfying puzzles
+ New minion equipment

CONS:
- New items for the overlord sucks (mainly because they have prebuilt stats)
- None of the the original CONS from the main game was ever addressed
- Some of the mini-games gives no clue on how to solve them (gardening puzzle)
- Far more expensive than the Original game, but still requires you to own said original game
- No additional events to increase Corruption / Evil

CONCLUSION:
GOOD EXPANSION although it could have used a bit more polishing specially since most of the CONS from the main game was never fixed. The game retains the core gameplay mechanics that made the original game unique and fun to play, it adds several hours of game time with an interesting new story, new monsters, new puzzles, and it lays down a good premise for the Overlord 2 sequel.

All in all, I still liked this expansion and give it my RECOMMENDATION. I do however, urge you to BUY THE OVERLORD COMPLETE PACK which contains Overlord 1, Overlord: Raising Hell (expansion), and Overlord 2 either on Sale or Full price, the game is worth the money for Action Adventure fans and people who's interested in the story.
