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.

Improved visuals, improved customizations and more interactive elements than just turning levers.

I loved the addition of mounts for the brown, red and green minions but the blues didn't get a mount for some reason.

One notable addition was the singing or caroling of the minions in a few occasions. I wish the game had more of these moments where the minions could hum marching tunes or random music to add an extra level of immersion to the game.

You can revive lost minions but at a cost. I really liked this featured b/c reviving your minion that is wearing a peacock feathered helmet must always be part of any regal and feared minion formation.

Only complaint I have with this one and it's predecessor is that the overlord walks too slow for me. I wish there was a way to improve its walking/running speed with either spells or equipment.

Overall the game is solid and fun.

Honestly. this is my favorite game series. The first one was great, and so is this. The wii one was a tad short for my liking, but still fantastic and humorous like all the others. Dark jokes, sex appeal, getting to be evil and DESTROY EVERYTHING THAT IS GOOD IN THE WORLD AND MAKE IT BEND TO YOUR WILL. well what else could you ask for in a game. I do hope they make a 3rd game, i know they made horde of evil, where its like a 4 player version. It looks great, but a continuation of this type of game would be great as well. it might weird out the controls but some new minion types might be good, or might not, i mean new game mechanics would be a possiblity if there were more types of minions. I mean getting to control minions at certain points is awesome and so cool to do.

It's like real life simulator. You get high with your homies, one of them call you lord of psychos and everyone walks behind you humming merrily "tararara".

More of the same from Overlord 1, with some improvements, not enough improvements. The good stuff is still here, and the bad stuff is mostly still here.

The good stuff:

- Funny and fun game! The cheerful villainy of Overlord 1 is still here, with plenty of cheeky British humour and a parody of Tolkien tropes.

- Controlling your minions is as fun as ever. They are a lively bunch, scooping over their targets in a frenzy, picking up helmets and swords and what not for their own use. Their delight in evil is hilarious and strangely endearing.

- The four types of minions have different abilities, strengths and weaknesses. Acquiring each type is a quest in itself, and then you get to utilise them in various combat puzzles during the rest of the game.

- If it's your thing (it's not my thing) you can customise your evil base, invest in different buffs and level up your gear and your minions. There's a whole metagame in there.

- The story never takes itself too seriously, and the whole thing has a light, fun feel to it.

- It's an open world, and you can switch between quests at your leisure, there's no linearity.

- I'm glad there's now a minimap - Overlord 1 didn't have one and it was pain to navigate sometimes. Much better here.

The bad stuff:

- The minions might be fast and nimble, but your player character (the Overlord) is as slow and lumbering as he was in OL1. I get that it's supposed to be this way - you're the heavy tank and they're the quick little rogues - but your slowness is really tedious when much of your play time is spent slowly tromping from point to point. Yes there are portals, but not often enough.

- Controls can be rather fiddly. You're trying to manage 4 different minion groups, setting waypoints, moving them around, while also moving yourself and fighting with your own weapons and spells.

- I haven't finished the game. At least not as of this review. Maybe because I played OL1 and started this right away, but I got rather bored at some point. And the slow movement pace really doesn't help.

----------------

Overall, this gets a big recommendation from me. I suggest you start with playing Overlord 1: Raising Hell, then take a break, then start with Overlord 2.
