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:

Minions are cute and deadly at the same time. And you are basically Sauron look alike chopping down whiny villagers, throwing fireballs at fat hobbits and pillaging elven kingdoms. What's there not to like?

Pre-Release Review
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.

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.

in one sentence: This game is a must be played very funny game. 9.5/10
what I liked:
-the way minion talk to me
-the way minions die for me
-the way minions kill for me (or for fun)
-sense of humor of minions
-story of the game
-bossfights
what I didn't like:
-some minions were precious to me(like the one who had a gold thrown). I was so mad for loosing them and I had to play the game from the last check point.
-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 ...
-the graphics. but to be fair it's accepatble ( this game is for 2007 and I reviewed this in 2016)
goodluck and don't forget to finish this game. this game got such a nice ending
