"Improves on the first game in almost every way. Seems to have a bit more focus on combat and tactics. Both games are good but pick this one."

About This Game

Overlord II, sequel to the critically acclaimed cult hit, sees the return of the chaotic Minions and their new Dark Master. Bigger, badder and more beautifully destructive, Overlord 2 has a Glorious Empire to smash, a massive Netherworld to revive, Minion mounts to mobilize, a trio of mistresses to woo, War Machines to crush opposition and lots of cute creatures to, err... murder (and a mini-map)

  • What sort of stuff will I get to kill? Your main source of victims will come from the brave and highly flammable ranks of the Glorious Empire, a sinister regime that gained power after the fall of the previous Overlord. You'll be hacking your way through entire battalions at a time, but to keep the blood on your sword varied we've also thrown a few Yetis, Elves, villagers and annoyingly cute indigenous species into the mix, just to name but a few. Don't say we never do anything for you.
  • I've always wanted to enslave the human race, is this the game for me? You've come to the right place! With the Domination style Overlord humanity, can become your plaything. Village by village, you'll reap the benefits of an unwilling workforce as you drive the Glorious Empire from your lands.
  • I'm more of a "watch the world burn" kind of guy, can I still get my rocks off? We've got your pleasure, sir. With the Destruction style Overlord you can ravage the land like a moody Tsunami; razing cities, forests and Imperial camps to the ground just because they looked at you funny.
  • What can my minions do? Minions are angry little Swiss army knives of pain: They can ride into battle on wolves and other magical creatures, loot the best weapons from stomped enemies, pillage houses for treasure, operate fearsome war machines, infiltrate enemy camps and polish your armour so thoroughly you'll blind passing wildlife.
  • What types of Minions can I rule? This new batch of minions is smarter, faster, deadlier and wittier than the sorry sacks of skin you used to rule. Minions now come in four fantastic flavours: Browns are brutal brawlers that solve their problems with teeth and fists. Reds are the surly artillery who love to play catch, as long as it's with fireballs. Greens are the stealthy assassins. Silent and deadly, like a fart on legs. Blues are no use in a fight but can resurrect fellow Minions who've tried to stop a sword with their face.

Great for conquest gaming action series funny minoions and even funny enemies lots of smashing but most of all losts of goblins bashing everything to peices :), Need a Overlord III With more ideas then just the fun and action though with like strategy and defesene because realistcly the latin proveb is the conquered mourns the conqueror is undone, Meaning you only truly own the land when you either chose 2 choices which the first one they will problay pick first take out the entire populace and enslave the rest and make a goblin empire or 2 reach to the souls of the ones you conqueror and overlord II Is to chaos kinda of game to pick choice 2 :P That and its just a game so does not really matter what you do in it :P. Although you got to admit then when you conqueror the land you really truly gain nothing other then the land when you chose choice 2 but it be nice if they just give its chaos theme none the less.

It's like Pikmin with demons, only better!

+ better than Overlord 1 in every regard!
+ looks great
+ a lot of humour
+ fun to play, especially destroying everything in sight with your minion horde : D
+ minions have mounts now!
+ minions are better balanced in general
+ 4 different mistresses to seduce
+ own lair to customise
+ villages to destroy or slave (free money)

- no reason to kill villagers as you'll miss on free money!
- more customisation options wouldn't hurt
- lair can feel a bit empty at times, only certain spots where you can actually do something

Score: 4/5 and a strong recommendation, had a total blast playing through this!

PS. I hope they make a third OL, this one was great!

I really like the idea of the game. But there are a few problems with it first of all its poorly depicted where you need to go and you end up doing alot of backtracking. The humor is really good and I'd recommend the game especially when it is on sale.

Excellent sequel. If you enjoyed the first game you will find this one more of the same but bigger and with some extra variety. I enjoyed it so much I played through to completion and lost a couple of days.

The negative reviews I've read seem to be mostly people with tech issues, I had none (Win8).
And if you played the first game you'll have had good practice at the controls, again I had no issues.
If you have issues with camera sticking then quit squeezing your mouse so darn hard, just click again to reset, then click again to control.

The game crashes A LOT for me. My pc is fine because I run many many other games without any problems. But this game just crashes like every 20 minutes or so.

Waste of money.

Overlord II could have been an enjoyable title had it not fallen for perhaps the most common pitiful of the genre: The simple tactics are better than the advanced tactics.

You're given all kinds of little imps to fight battles for you, and you're given all of these opportunities to use them in a variety of ways, but in the end, it's just easier to select all of them and point them at the nearest thing that they can kill. No strategy, no immersion, just simple tasks that make the game boring.

Score: 8/10

The original Overlord game was essentially a cult classic and I gladly consider myself one of those that absolutely loved it. I actually prefer how the original game handled some of the aspects such as armor/weapon upgrades. The upgrade options make more sense, but I felt you had to grind for money way to often and just ended up almost skipping it entirely.

The addition of mounts for your minions was actually amazing and probably the main thing that sets this game above the original. My main complaint with the game is honestly it just doesn't feel like it is as fleshed out as it could have been when it comes to things like controling the towns. I loved putting down a revolt, but since it only happens once per town it isn't even really a spoiler. The mistresses are handled the way they should be.

The magic felt weak for some reason to me. The spells help and all, but I never really felt like an all poweful cast sacrifcing minions for personal gain. I enjoyed the idea of minion level up system and bringing back high levels from the dead, but to be honest I never used it.

The game still has the same minion types as the original which is very balanced still. The tactics of killing commanders and using catepults was very enjoyable. The ability to mind control a minion and lead an assault or stealth mission was great. The games dark humor is always enjoyable. It still seems to have choices which are essentially evil vs chaos evil.

The main thing that I wish it had more of was funny bosses like Melvin Underbelly from the original. I did als find it strange that blues never got a mount when I kept thinking they would get a frog or a slug mount. Overall the humor and variety of gameplay make it a neat nitch market title.

Lord of the rings: Tiny Orc edition is the sequel to the critically acclaimed cult hit. To those not in that cult the first game was called Wraith of the Hobbit King. So how does one even begin with a garbage dump like this game? The story is a direct rip off of Call of Duty: Ghosts. The gameplay is pikmin, its literally a different skin on pikmin. As Sauron you decide it is best to do ever last little peice of grunt work yourself, and he is way weaker than he was in the movies. Like a panda killed me, like four times. And the soundtrack simply didn't live up to the normal electronic and dubstep we are used to. You can't even get that weird orc with no eyes and all the teeth to sit outside your tower and welcome guests all like, "Yisssssss, welcome!" Its not all bad though, you are able to brutally murder cute and innocent animals, so im gonna have to give it 4/5

Two minutes into the game, kid Overlord beats ♥♥♥♥♥♥ kids up with a stick, blows up their ice fortress with obscenely huge bottle rockets, and steals their clothes for tone-deaf minions. Plan to ruin Christmas celebration with more bottle rockets when Glorious Roman Ripoff Empire starts launching stones. Skinny monocled ♥♥♥♥♥♥ demands a magic user be sacrificed. Peasant throws kid Overlord over the wall. Kid get more minions, beats up soldiers with a stick, and steals their catapault. More soldiers die, things get flattened, fun times had, aim sucks. Minions mount wolves, more soldiers die.

Free random giant cyclops yeti thing. Yeti breaks random ice lake. Yeti and kid get frozen.

You know, normal kid stuff.
