A proper sequel to Overlord: Raising Hell.
And I specify Raising Hell, because it follows that particular story arch, where your predicessor is stuck in the Infernal Abyss and all the stuff that happened in the mean time.
I really like the fact that, although a very short section at the start, you get to play as a little kid, the son of the previous Overlord.
The game mechanics are similar but there's only so little you can do with magic. But I do love Evil pressence for the mind controlling.
While in the wastelands it does show you what happened to the Halflings (which I found to be an awesome cameo) it doesn't explain what happened to the Dwarfs. A game like this, especially since it has Elves, needs Dwarfs.
If you're sinister of mind, you are going to love this game, but I do insist you play Overlord and Raising Hell first because of the references tp those in Overlord 2. You won't understand them when you're presented with them.
I give this game a 75/10!
