While I could never personally get into the Pikmin series, Overlord 1 and 2 had me enthralled after a half an hour of play. While the main mechanics of the game are very similar to Pikmin, with minions that have different abilities such as being able to cross water, fire, etc. the game also features spell system that the player can take advantage of as well as the ability to use multiple types of melee weapons.
Another big difference between Pikmin and the Overlord series is the tone and story of the game. Pikmin is a more child friendly game, while Overlord is definitely more geared towards the adult audience with a story that is actually fairly well written and not so generic with the premise, as you are actually kind of the villian in these games.
The graphics have a different style than most games, with a very claylike feel that you will notice more in the winter areas of the game. Not to say that the visuals are bad by any means, they're just not outstanding.
Definitely worth picking up if you can get a good price on these games. Just a warning, the first game is a little more dated in visuals as it's a bit older but it's still not eye-bleedingly terrible.
