About This Game

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.

I have to admit that I was enjoying the main game better, but I don't regret any second I was playing Raising Hell as well. Everything what I've said about Overlord is true for its DLC as well. Meet the heroes again and conquer the Abysses. 12-13 hours game content, just like the main game quite linear, and lacks real story. You will encounter a story plot only at the end of the game, with a twist at the end not unseen elsewhere. Despte all this, I say don't miss it if you enjoyed Overlord.

I am a Belgium guy and this is made by Dutch developers. Even I can say that this game is fun. It was a sleeper hit when it was released and suprised many.

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
