¿Cómo puedes llegar a ser de malo?

Descubre lo corrupto que puedes llegar a ser en Overlord, la retorcida aventura de acción y fantasía en la que puedes ser malo... o realmente malo. En el corrupto mundo de fantasía del juego, los jugadores se convertirán en el Overlord y comprobarán de primera mano cómo el poder absoluto te corrompe absolutamente. Podrías limitarte a ser un Overlord normal y corriente. Sin embargo, con un poder tan increíble a tu disposición y una horda de impíos servidores con mentes retorcidas, los Minions, totalmente a tu disposición, ¡¿cómo resistir la tentación de ser maravillosamente despótico?!

Profundiza en el retorcido mundo de Overlord en esta expansión que abre una serie de nuevos e infernales niveles, unos abismos sobrenaturales para los cinco reinos del juego: Mellow Hills, Evernight, Heaven's Peak, Golden Halls y el Ruborian Desert. Puedes acceder a cada nivel mediante un portal, que se abre una vez que el reino ha sido conquistado con éxito y su anterior gobernante ha sido desterrado a un infierno personal. Sin embargo los héroes caídos no son los únicos que han sido enviados al abismo: los nuevos y leales seguidores del Overlord también están de visita en el infierno.

Con los habitantes no muertos de cada abismo atacando y amenazando al reino del Overlord en la tierra, sólo queda una opción: formar tu ejército de seguidores, descender a cada uno de los abismos y embarcarte en una nueva oleada de tiranía para devolver a los siervos a sus hogares, vencer a los héroes caídos de una vez por todas, y reclamar el trono de cada reino del submundo.

INCLUYE EL PACK OVERLORD CHALLENGE:
Ven y echa un vistazo si tu Overlord ya ha tenido suficiente. Una nueva diversión, saqueo y pillaje en siete mapas multijugador adicionales, incluyendo el competitivo mapa ‘Captura la Dama’ y ‘Protege Tu Poder’, donde los jugadores deben defender la torre del Overlord de oleadas de ataques enemigos.

  • ¡PIENSA MAL, ALBERGA EL MAL, CONTRÓLALO TODO! Entra en acción y conviértete en el Overlord, el todopoderoso señor oscuro con una horda de sirvientes para comandar y una tierra para conquistar.
  • CONTROLA UNA HORDA DE SIRVIENTES Serviles y leales, machacarán, destruirán, matarán y robarán todo para tí. Tu palabra es la ley.
  • CONVIÉRTETE EN EL OVERLORD ¿Quieres miedo, respeto, oro y poder?. Conviértete en el ser más poderoso del mundo utilizando cualquier método a tu alcance.
  • CONQUISTA UN RETORCIDO MUNDO DE FANTASÍA Muestra a los Siete Héroes, los Demoníacos Medianos, y Rabiosos Unicornios quién es el que manda.

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.

So here’s what you get
Evernight Abyss+Boss
Heaven's Peak Abyss+Boss
Golden Abyss+Boss
Infernal Abyss+Boss
1 AXE OF CONFUSION
1 MACE OF DOOM
1 HARVESTING HELMET
1 SWORD OF LIFE-STEALING
1 ARMOR OF FIRE
5 New Dungeon Challenges
3 New Multilayer Maps-not 100% sure on that but I know you get at least 3
7/10-Its not that it not fun, I relished all the levels and the story had the same great feel to it. But for 10$, when the game costs 5$. It was really disappointed and I wanted stuff to be hidden all over the game so you could go explore again. To be able to buy more stuff for your castle and get a new room. To upgrade all of your minions and not just the two you picked during the first part. The most fun I got out of this game was when a friend gave me a link for this - http://forum.cheatengine.org/viewtopic.php?p=5430025
you can spawn about 120 minions safely, the more you make the more of a chance of them just vanishing. give them infinite health and mana, give yourself infinite health and mana. Best of all you can speed hack both yourself and the minions to move at insane game breaking speeds, I have yet to try this in multilayer. But it gives the game a 2nd 3rd or 4th playthrough and a reason to buy it if you already own it on a gaming system.

Pros:
Kinda funny
Decent graphics
Easy Concept

Cons:
If you start on the hardest difficulty you will hate yourself and this game
Farming type of game
Can be so frusturating that you break the controller because hitler himself made this game and then it was reviewed by the 7 layers of hell and determined unfit to play so then the devil edited it until he rage quit. He then broke the game gave it to Matt Hassleback who through it to T.O. for a touchdown. He spiked the ♥♥♥♥ outta this game in the end zone. So once you beat this game you are in the end zone (where you through your computer because you just wasted 66.6 hours of your life).

Other:
Would recommend playing on easy if you actually want to enjoy the game.
Orrr do what I did fully crank the game first round and end up in the end zone and buy a new monitor...

In Overlord, you are either evil or very evil. You play as a guy who buys his clothes from the same shop as Sauron and The Lich King. Your goal is to conquer the world.
This means that you have to control an army of minions. The game plays quite badly with a mouse and keyboard, so I recommend using an xbox controller or gamepad.
The game looks quite nice, aside from some very poor ground textures.
The story is actually pretty cool, and I actually don't think it suffers from using a silent protagonist.
Overall Overlord is quite a fun game. It features some dark british humor, which I always appreciate, and it is surprisingly lengthy. 7.5/10

A decent offering of DLC.

The DLC basically call upon the Overlord to come into a elseworld version of the first games trials.
Pretty similer to what you already loved (or hated) from the first game.

I cant say I could stomach the repetion. However, if you cant wait to fill the Overlords shoes once again, go fo it!

A Paladin’s Steam Review: Overlord & Overlord: Raising Hell
Most of my playtime is present in Overlord: Raising Hell

#Discussions_QuoteBlock_Author
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.

To me, this paragraph is describing another game entirely. It's one case of marketing that I could argue negatively affected my impression, and eventual review, of a game. I did create a review several years back but I've returned after several years to make it informational and useful to you, the reader. So, let's begin.

Overall Story Thoughts
Overlord is a quirky cartoonish game sure, but a dark twisted fantasy adventure where you get to be really evil? I disagree. It’s true that people who do evil deeds don’t feel evil or in the wrong when they’re doing them. But...well...let's talk about the story. In the game, you're setup as some sort of evil Overlord, tasked with bringing darkness and ruin to the world along with the help of your minions. So, you go out into the world and destroy people who are more evil than you and bring peace….and prosperity….to the land. Ok, that's one way it ends. The other way the story ends is that you create a land ruled by fear and your power's corruption and devastation of the lands. But all it does is affect the ending cutscene, not the game itself. Well, it doesn't affect it that much. I really don't like games that set me up to think that my in-game actions will affect the world when all it really does is affect the end cutscene.

This game doesn't really let you be an evil overlord during the course of play. Part of which is to be blamed on the more comedic, cutesy tones present throughout the story. You can’t just randomly kill people if you wish, only in special circumstances. While you can set fire to wheat fields, slaughter sheep and destroy all the kegs of beer you can see, they just regrow back as soon as you leave. I get that it needs to be that way for gameplay reasons but it’s hard to feel evil when you know what you’re doing isn’t really harming anyone. If anything, I just feel more like a destroyer of boxes than a ruler of all that is dark and evil. I can’t even make children cry at the sight of me! I mean, c'mon. What is this...

All that said, it does make for a decent time as more of a comedic/light fantasy story than a dark tale of power & corruption. Characters are two dimensional and stereotypical but the interactions can be somewhat amusing at times. Especially between the Overlord and the town citizens. All typical fantasy creatures can be found here. Drunken Dwarves, Ethereal Elves, Portly Halflings, Dumb Trolls and more are in this world, serving the part they play in most any other fantasy genre. You get to see a decent variety of locations too. But there wasn't much that surprised me.

Gameplay Thoughts
You control up to 100 minions and an unnamed overlord at the same time. The overlord gets a melee attack chain and the use of spells but he should generally stay out of the fight. Otherwise, you'll wind up running out of health and mana extremely fast. So, you'll be playing most of the game through your four types of minions:
  • Brown melee minions that will generally make up the cannon fodder of your army.
  • Red fireball throwing minions that are immune to fire.
  • Green poison immune minions that will backstab enemies.
  • Blue minion reviving ones that are immune to water and have weaker attacks.
It’s a decent variety of minions but the game lacks in tactical decision making. Just send swarms of minions at your enemies and recall if you notice a big telegraphed attack coming. That’s really about the sum of the combat. Most of the time you’ll be losing minions because the controls didn't respond or you didn't see a hazard in time. That or they become stuck on doing whatever activity you "assigned" them or in the terrain. The sweeping function doesn't help matters either as it has the same issues. It’s more tiresome than enjoyable to deal with these controls when multiple types of hazards/enemies are present in a level. One last thing: I was fighting the camera more than I felt necessary for a 3rd person game which doesn't help the already frustrating gameplay. You have very limited control over it.

PC Settings & Multiplayer
I never did get a chance to experience multiplayer because the servers were shutdown after Overlord II was released. You can play online through Hamachi but the community has no doubt suffered. There is a split-screen mode though, that’s rather unusual for a PC-centric title. Graphics settings are solid. Resolution options, AA slider, V-Sync, Texture/Debris/View distance sliders are here as well. FOV is missing but you probably won’t need it. Audio sliders are present as well and it supports up to 8.1 speaker systems which is nice. Mouse and Keyboard function well enough but I think controller is the preferred control scheme. Even with a controller, the game feels like it’s fighting me the entire time. The game is getting on to be 8 years old now and it is rather disappointing that the framerate doesn't stay consistent. I noticed even on my current machine that it would fluctuate between 50-60 fps during the first level. I don't think it's enough to be a deal breaker but I wonder how bad it would be to play some of the later levels again.

Overlord: Raising Hell Expansion Thoughts
It’s not worth it. Half of it is challenge levels with a minor amount of story attached and the other half of it is maps for the now non-functioning multiplayer. Unless you really enjoy the mechanics of controlling your minions and want to challenge yourself to a new level of frustration, this expansion is a pass. Oh and keep in mind that the original game won’t launch if the expansion is installed. Not a big deal but something I should mention here.

Final Thoughts
I don’t recommend Overlord or Overlord: Raising Hell. While there are glimpses of really fun gameplay, it eventually gets worse over time. Frustation set in long before the game ended and there’s a constant sense of repetition and I want this to end already that plagues the latter half. It just becomes a long grind. Between that and the quirky controls/minion behavior, it leaves a lot to be desired. Additionally, there is a ton of backtracking. The story itself is...ok. Its not awful but its not very memorable either. It seems at odds with itself on whether you're a good guy or bad guy. Outside of smacking minions around, destroying some buildings and killing a few people, you don’t really feel like a true Overlord to me. You just feel like an anti-hero who's a jerk when all I'm doing is defeating corrupted heroes, saving the townspeople from starvation and being a generally good guy. It's a decent enough 3rd person "RTS" game but I think it could have been much better given more attention to its gameplay.
