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.

Overlord 2 for me was a fun play through. Smooth cartoony graphics, ran great on an older system, full controller support. You have four different type of minions that you use to your disposal. Each type brings something new to the table, the blue ones can blink past enemies to help you get to the next part, the brown minions are the grunts that charge right in and just fight, the green ones will jump on the backs of your enemies taking them down quick, and the red ones have the range attack throwing fire. I found the game pretty funny, you can slightly customize your tower which is your home where you will level your minions and craft some gear. To craft your gear you will have to sacrfice numbers of the minions that follow you. You have tons of crates and stuff to smash, from doing this and defeating enemies you can gear your minions up as they pick up armor and weapons. My biggest complaint on this game was with controls sometimes felt clunky using the 360 controller and the camera sometimes did not want to do as I intended. Overall I enjoyed this game and recommend it.

i only rememberd that i have already finished this game on my old xbox 360 when i finished it again on PC. i don't know why i played this game, maybe because i liked overlord I, the game is more like a adventure game with puzzles. if you like action game with real-time strategy element you should play brutal legend. this game tried to include a lot of things, but every aspect feels short.

If you haven't played the first overlord go and do that and if you're still hungry for more, come back here.

Basiclly everything in overlord is better then the original one. This dosen't mean that this game is a solid 10/10 but if shows that the developers knew what they were doing.

In overlord 2 you will get better pacing, more varying gameplay and a decent story (i guess)

I don't feel like ranting about this games flaws becuase it's only cost 9 euro.

Decent game 7/10 - BROWNS

The game itself is a welcome sequal to the first. The minions are smarter, the powers are cooler, the elve's are dumber (hippies), the jokes are allot more clever, and the setting is twice as glorious as the first, and the things you can do are more open (possession, mind control, dark magic incineration) + lighting powers. O.O Oh and the occational puzzle (super rare)

There is also allot of monty python style comedy for those who enjoy the more complex and intellegent humor. And please check the requirements first. No-one wants to see someone having a paddy because they couldn't set up their PC and felt the need to blame it on someone else.

Now..

I will say this, if you're a bit of a dumb dumb or entitled individual then this game is not for you.

If you however are a bit of a smart ♥♥♥, complex thinker or an emotional wreck, then this game is definetly for you.

Although Overlord 1 was a heap of fun, this seems like an extension that didn’t add much to the first game. It’s also extremely annoying with the excessively long gaps between AutoSaves, making a very linear level harder and more time consuming than it should be for a perfectionist. Not to mention the bugs that took hours to figure out and bypass. I literally spent 2 hours and retried the level because I thought I missed something causing the game not to progress. After watching YouTube on what was supposed to happen I finally realized it was not my fault then had to search forums how to get past the glitch. This happened in 2 different instances. The game is still lots of fun, but I wouldn’t point anyone to go out and buy this unless they were a hard-core overlord fan.

More linear than a call of duty campain. A sad sequel to the original Overlord, characters are too cartoonish in nature constantly making terrible jokes directed at a younger audience and the game gives little option in how to progress. Ultimaetly thats the best way to sum it up, you have too few options in everything, even combat has a certain sequence you need to follow to defeat enemys.

This game is quite flawed, walk into it knowing that.

The first thing I did (as I do with most games) is open whatever configuration options the game makes available, and unfortunately for us, the graphics options leave much to be desired. The configuration screen seems more to set your resolution and generic quality dropboxes than tweak the game to work on your system. Thankfully, most PCs should be able to run this fine (I run it at a native 1366x768 at High on a laptop released two or so years ago) and it looks quite nice.

This is also a game you must play with attention paid to the story. The game has excellent writing and a sense of humour that gets me every time. Heck, the tutorial teaches you how to play by telling you to ruin this world's version of Christmas, and then the main game encourages you to go seal clubbing. The great writing often carries the game through rougher bits, like the odd graphical glitches that can cause a minion's eyes to momentarily dislodge from its body or the wonky minion AI that compels my Reds to walk up and punch the vicious hunter. But playing as many glitchy, underpolished games as I have rather immunizes me to these kinds of things so I can look past them and still find the plethora of fun.

Many improvements have been made over the first. For instance, the player is now a dangerous force in combat, spells are much more useful, and minions are less inclined to drown themselves. Minor nigglings like the amount of effort needed to craft weapons have been addressed, and minions have much more personality now. In fact, you can even choose to have certain favourites come back from death, and you ca track the title and level of each throughout the course of the game. It makes equipping certain minions less of gamble because you don't lose the fancy gladius when Beezer the Seal Slayer gets mauled out in the field.

Overall, Overlord II is a game you need to adjust your expectations for. It's not the most complicated game (puzzles are often just assigning certain minions to a task) and the combat often devolves to chucking brown minions at anything that so much as breathes but it's the heart the game wears on its sleeve that makes it a worthwhile purchase. And at an impulse-friendly $10, it's not really that big of a ounch to the pocketbook if you walk away feeling unfulfilled with the game's antics.

This is a much bigger game that the original Overlord. Here you command war machines and ships. The areas are more detailed and offer more adventure. Also, your minnions can gain "mounts" to ride into battle. Brown, Green, and Red each get a unique mount. The is plenty of enjoyable fun. Some areas are better than others but I'm sure that will be a personal feeling for each player. I enjoyed the greatly expanded world. New play mechanics like "minnion possession" are really fun. The Overlord series is about enjoying yourself and ravaging the world with your minnion hordes. The ability to choose and combine 4 different types of minnions means every battle can be replayed countless times. I really liked these light-hearted Overlord games that always provide new challenges and keep player enjoyment foremost during the entire game. Replay for Overlord 2 is very high and honestly fun. This series is a big sleeper that many people missed but thanks to Steam you can enjoy the experience.

I rate Overlord 2 and 8 out of 10.

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.
