Om detta spel

Overlord II, uppföljaren till det kritikerrosade originalspelet, låter oss delta i de kaotiska Minions återkomst och deras nya mästare. Större, elakare och än mer underbart destruktiva har Overlord II ett helt imperium att krossa, en massiv undre värld att återuppliva, Minion-riddjur att mobilisera, en trio härskarinnor att ställa in sig hos, krigsmaskiner för att förstöra allt motstånd och massor av andra söta varelser som kan, öh... mördas (och en mini-karta).
  • Vilka saker kommer jag kunna döda? Din huvudsakliga källa av offer kommer att bestå av de modiga och mycket lättantändliga imperietrupperna, en illvillig regim som tog makten efter den förre Overlordens fall. Du kommer att hacka dig igenom hela bataljoner åt gången, men för att låta det blod som täcker ditt svärd lite mer varierat har vi kastat in några yetis, alver, bybor och irriterande gulliga inhemska arter också, bara för att nämna ett par. Säg inte att vi aldrig gör något för dig.
  • Jag har alltid velat förslava mänskligheten, är det här spelet något för mig? Du har kommit till rätt ställe! Med en Domination-Overlord kan mänskligheten bli din egen lilla leksak. By efter by kan du dra nytta av med deras förslavade arbetskraft medan du utdriver imperietrupperna från dina länder.
  • Jag är mer en slags "bränn upp hela världen"-kille, kan jag fortfarande ge utlopp för detta? Vi vet precis vad du vill ha, herrn. Med en Destruction-Overlord kan du härja över världen som en lynnig tsunami - jämna städer, skogar och imperieläger med marken bara för att de tittade på dig lite konstigt.
  • Vad kan mina undersåtar göra? Minions är små och arga små multiverktyg: de kan rida in i strid på vargar och andra magiska varelser, plundra fiender på deras bästa vapen, göra husräder för att leta skatter, manöverera skräckinjagande krigsmaskiner, infiltrera fiendeläger och polera din rustning så grundligt att den kommer blända vilda djur du möter.
  • Vilka sorters Minions kommer jag kunna härska över? Detta nya parti av Minions är smartare, snabbare, dödligare och klurigare än de värdelösa snorskallarna du härskade över förut. Minions kommer numera i fyra olika underbara färger: bruna är brutala slagskämpar som löser sina problem med deras tänder och knytnävar. Röda är det härskna artilleri som älskar att spela boll, så länge det görs med eldklot. De gröna är de smygande lönnmördarna, tysta och dödliga likt en smygfis med ben. Blå Minions är inte till mycket hjälp i en strid, men kan återuppliva kamrater som har försökt att stoppa ett svärd med deras ansikte.

Honestly this game is a really big step forward from the first game. I noticed less bugs, the combat feels better, and the story and setting are much better. For me it still wasn't enough of an improvement, but it might be for you.

Overlord II is another great game in the Overlord franchise, and the second of 5 games in the series, and the only other game besides Overlord 1 that actually matters. I have a feeling that Triumph Studios, the developers of this game, didn't realize how successful the first game was going to be, so for the second game decided that they were going to make it better than ever, and it really shows, with a new plot, new graphics, and new mechanics. The problem is, it doesn't really feel like they added too much to the base game, just tweaked a few things here and bugger all else has changed. I'll be comparing this game to the first quite a bit, so if you haven't played the first, go and play it! Do it now!
TL; DR: Another Great Game, Improvements on the first, don't buy unless you were a fan of the first.
Pros:
*Controls- The controls are about the same as the first game, with L Mouse sending Minions, R Mouse recalling minions, Space attacks, and L and R together "Sweep" your minions, letting you path them directly. About the same as the first game, but they've improved the actual combat of the Overlord, so now he's not just a wimp hiding behind his minions.
*Pathfinding/AI- One of my biggest gripes about the first game was the dreadful pathfinding, and thankfully they've fixed this in the new game. Your minions don't act like recent lobotomization patients anymore, so you don't have to constantly babysit them. Couple that with improved AI, which means your enemies aren't just going to charge straight at you, in fact the main enemy in the game, different varieties of the Legionnaire, will group up into clumps and raise their shields, while captains, fat blokes with shiny armor, boss them around and make them harder to kill.
*Spells- The spells in this game come in three varieties, a beam spell that enslaves or kills villagers, and then two other spells that I never ended up using because both seemed as useful as a dish sponge in draining the entire ocean. That being said, the one useful spell deals damage overtime to enemies, and villagers or townsfolk that aren't usually combatants can suddenly be hoisted into the fray to fight your enemies for you, or you can eradicate them entirely.
*Plot/Moral Choice- The plot is another aspect that they improved upon from the last game, with the new plot centering around "The Glorious Empire," a Roman Empire wannabee that forbids all magic, and hunts down any and all that use magic. It makes for a more centralized focus, rather than in Overlord 1 where you were schizophrenically darting around the land and fighting enemies that you had never even heard of or seen before. They also improved the Moral Choice system, which in the last game made you "Nice Evil" or "♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ Evil," and ditching that for the two different flavors of Evil, Destruction or Domination. The spell that I mentioned earlier ties into that, with certain times in the plot being influenced by this spell, and reversely improving the spell by either making it easier to dominate, or easier to destroy.
*Music- The music is actually somewhat memorable in this game, most notably the opening menu theme.
Cons:
*More Poor Voice Acting: So, my biggest gripe from the last game was the horrible voice acting, which gave me a conditioned hatred for anyone with a cockney accent. While it's not as bad in this game, it's still rather dreadful, especially near the beginning with the Nordberg Citizens and hunters. Again, exceptions were the Minions and Mistresses, especially your first mistress, Kelda, who is voiced by Sarah Hadland from Leap Year and Magicians. They also brought back Marc Silk, who had a great performance once again as Gnarl the Minion Master (fun fact, he also performed on and off as Bob the Builder from 2006 to present day, and Sir Daniel Fortesque from MediEvil II, so I suppose Evil is just something he does.)
*The Variety is Gone- One of the things I loved from the last game was the variety, and while it's still there, it just doesn't feel the same, with nothing new really being added to the equation, and not feeling as tight as the first game.
*Humor is Gone- Another thing I liked from the first game was the humor, but that also seems to be missing. I never found myself laughing or even chuckling, and Gnarl's constant banter, which started out decently enough, soon turned out to be annoying, then excruciating. I'm not sure what exactly went astray with the writing, but my hypothesis is that there were no sheep, resorting to the next best fluffy animal, baby seals. I'm sorry, but brutally murdering sheep was fun, and clubbing baby seals isn't so much fun as a little disturbing.
*Useless Mechanics- Many mechanics got added into the game to try to give it some spice, but they just ended up being used a couple of times and thrown into the bin. There were Mounts added into the game, but they only spawned in certain areas of certain zones, and disappeared whenever you went into the next area. The salamanders in particular seemed really useless and rushed, being used all of one time before being thrown to the sidelines. Minion possession was another mechanic they used all of four times, none of which seemed all that necessary. The last one was Minion Disguises, which were the most useless of the three big new mechanics, being used to let your minions fool the locals into thinking they were guards. I guess the stupid virus that the minions had in the first game got transferred to the NPC's, because the flimsy disguises for knee-high goblins end up fooling them, but they're only used three times in the entire plot. Oh, and they made it so that minions had their own names, but they're made to be cannon fodder, so one wonders what the point was.
*Flat-Out Rage Inducing- I put the fact that Overlord 1 was unforgiving in certain spots, but those feel like mere annoyances compared the massive amounts of scumbaggery displayed in this game. From Roman Ghostbusters that suck up any minions in their path to two bosses that have insta-kill attacks, one of which is rolling so fast around the area that you are bound to lose most of your health and/or all of your minions with one attack. But the biggest Richard Relocation that I've ever seen was the section where you have to rescue your Blue Minions in the arena dungeons, sneaking by vastly overpowering guards and rescuing around 4 to 5 at a time. What bugs me so much about this section is that there is a puddle of water in front of the area you're supposed to go into, so the rest of your minions can't go in with you. EXCUSE ME, BUT WHAT? You pit an angry suit of metal against Roman Centurions whose attacks make your health bar disappear like a presidential candidates E-mails, then give him little goblins that CAN'T EVEN ATTACK! They had to add in the ability for your blues to become invisible whenever they are being swept to finish this section, but that just outlines how useless the Green Minions end up becoming, since they were the stealth minions!
*Not Enough Autosaves- I was going to add this into the previous section, but it's already looking like an argumentative essay in and of itself, so I'll just add it in here that there aren't nearly enough autosaves. When learning the ins and outs of Green Minions, the mission to rescue the Green Hive takes roughly 20 minutes to complete, with absolutely no autosaves in between. So if you quit the game because your minions were busted by Dr. Pertinax Venkman for the 5th time, then you have to start the entire section again.
*The Ending Twist- Overlord II has a frankly stupid twist ending regarding the Emperor Solarius, the main antagonist. (Hint, why do you think he never spoke or took his mask off?) While it wasn't on the same level of stupidity of Overlord 1's twist ending, which was like the end of an M Night Shyamalan movie, it still felt like the end of an episode of Scooby Doo.
It's more Overlord, which I love, but not much of an improvement.

Overlord 2 Review
Overlord 2 pokes fun at the cliche video game protagonist and shows the world that being evil can be just as fun.

Please ignore the low playtime, I accumulated offline gameplay time as I played it away from home. Sorry I forgot to clarify :)

Gameplay 5/10
Overlord 2, despite having been released in 2009, still stands as an acceptable game 7 years since its initial release. The player assumes control of the new Overlord, a manifestation of evil itself. The game provides a variety of minions to the Overlord's disposal, each with their own role in combat. The Overlord must enter the fray with his minions by his side to progress through the game.

Overlord 2 should work much better on console than on PC. Reason being that the controls on PC are extremely janky and certain commands issued by the Overlord are obviously designed for an analog stick instead of a mouse. Despite my difficulties controlling the minions, the majority of the game still served as a fun and humour-filled experience.

Aside from the game's combat, the player is tasked with using the minions at his disposal to solve puzzles to progress through the level. These puzzles are usually fairly simple and don't serve as too much of a challenge.

That being said, the gameplay for Overlord 2 is merely slightly above average. Not only were the controls for the mosue and keyboard extremely unpolished, but the lack of a proper waypoint became infuriating. Overlord 2 gives no guidance to the player, not telling players where to go. This becomes a problem as the player is allowed to backtrack on the map, which becomes incredibly confusing as the game lacks a waypoint system for marking quests. ON the other hand, this encouraged me to do some more exploring, finding new items for upgrades along the way. An overall enjoyable experience.

Story/Lore 8/10
Overlord 2 focuses heavily on parodying fairlytale elements, as seen with its comically ridiculous character models for the antagonists of the game as well as the voice acting. I particularly enjoyed the hippy elf. Anyway, the story of Overlord 2 should not be taken too seriously, as the game is extremely lighthearted and casual, so it should be treated as such.

[h1/]Style 8/10[/h1]
Overlord 2 pulls of its style almost flawlessly. The presentation of the game's antagonists is comical and may yield a quick chuckle, regardless of what taste you have in humour. The Overlord feels worshipped by his minions, the antagonists are properly portrayed as tree-hugging, "soft and fluffy" creatures. Given the game's age, the visuals of the game shouldn't really be brought up, but for a game released in 2009, they're great.

Pros
+Stylish
+Charming
+Good story
+Unique

Cons
-Difficult to navigate
-Very slow progression

Conclusion
Overlord 2 takes pride in its unique and creative style, backed by a charming fairy-tale inspired story. However, its gameplay lacks excitement and thrill.

Rating: 21/30

Are the Boss Fights alright? THEYD BE GREAT IF THE CONTROLS WERENT SO DAMN CLUNKY!

The controls really ♥♥♥♥ on this game, but in my opinion if you can get past the rage from the lack of control of your minions than definelty worth a buy.

This game brings me the nostalgia . i used to play first part of overlord when i was around 7 years old , the good old game brings me so much memories , it was the first game i ever playd on my first computer back in 2008. I wish that they made overlord 3 but instead they made a ♥♥♥♥ version of diablo or some sort , which i though they will change their minds and make the overlord 3 , we waited and nothing happend , i bet it would have been the most sold game, cause of it's content and the fun it has .
It is one of the best games i playd on my pc and if you're reading this review , you should try playing this :).

Overlord 2...why?

Id absolutely love to recommend this game, I really would. Sadly, I cannot due to gamebreaking bugs that make it impossible to progress the storyline.

The gameplay is fine (when it works) and the humor is spot on as it was in the first, very enjoyable to play...if you can play.

Sadly the game has various bugs which inclue mobs 'standing still' and floating in the air dead, mobs glitching out through walls and in my case that Ive seen now, a completely gamebreaking bug not allowing me to progress the storyline due to the game accepting a specific hive but not allowing those type of minions to be spawned. After trying various fixes, retracking my save file, etc etc, all to no avail Ive sadly given up on it now.

The camera itself is a bit wonky and the minions arent easy to control, they more then often bug out and dont let themselves be controlled as fluidly as they should. I will say that Im playing the game itself with the controller, so I have not tested how the controls are with a keyboard and mouse.

Its a real shame because I was enjoying myself quite a bit, but sadly, at this point far past the refund mark, I cant even get the money back I payed for this product. I wont completely condone the game due to not everyone having issues with it, but in my specific case and what I have seen now I sadly cannot reccomend this game.

Before you do buy it I would advise you to check the discussions to see if your rig has any similiarties with others that are also complaining on the forums that they for instance cant even start the game or get it to function.

This review is subject to change if a patch comes out addressing all those issues and fixes the various bugs, but as it stands now, its not worth its price seeing as its not even playable for some people.

Edit: After much porting around..trying to find out who what when where and why etc, I have gotten past the 'gamebreaking bug' by..porting to various places and then back to the current place I was where it oddly completed 7 or so quests enabling me access to the rest of the storyline. I still stand by the review though that the bugs that occur are very trialing on ones patience and a real damper to the entire game.

I played hunderds of games, there is no game like Overlord, its unique identity, music, and world are really something. Overlord II adds minimap that wasn't there in first Overlord game.
It has funny start, good cutscenes, and many hints to help you progress the game.
I loved it although original one feeled more hardcore.

*Not Enough Autosaves- I was going to add this into the previous section, but it's already looking like an argumentative essay in and of itself, so I'll just add it in here that there aren't nearly enough autosaves. When learning the ins and outs of Green Minions, the mission to rescue the Green Hive takes roughly 20 minutes to complete, with absolutely no autosaves in between. So if you quit the game because your minions were busted by Dr. Pertinax Venkman for the 5th time, then you have to start the entire section again.
*The Ending Twist- Overlord II has a frankly stupid twist ending regarding the Emperor Solarius, the main antagonist. (Hint, why do you think he never spoke or took his mask off?) While it wasn't on the same level of stupidity of Overlord 1's twist ending, which was like the end of an M Night Shyamalan movie, it still felt like the end of an episode of Scooby Doo.
It's more Overlord, which I love, but not much of an improvement.

Avoid fellowship of evil like the plague. Boycott Codemasters for ruining the franchise.

Overlord 1 and 2, and maybe that one Wii title are the only ones you should bother with.

Codemasters needs to ♥♥♥♥ing die for what they did to Overlord. Fellowshit was made specifically to kill the franchise, nothing more. AVOID IT.

This said, overlord 1 and 2 are ♥♥♥♥ing classics. If you really want to, check out that one Wii game that was centered around the "Second" Overlord, where as Overlord 1 and 2 are the "third" and "fourth" respectively- there has been countless overlords before, but only three of them have numerical titles, and only one of them really recurrs, but I cannot tell you as it would be Overlord 1 spoiling.

Speakin' of spoilers, go into the series blind about the story. You'll enjoy it a lot more, and Overlord 1 had a bit of a twist that was so well displayed and executed at it's climax, yet only really hinted at in the backround and those who are observant.

Overlord 2's twist is a -bit- more obvious as a result, however, and not as well shown off.

Why the hell did Codemasters have to ruin the franchise? Overlord III could of been kick ♥♥♥, especially if we incorporated new mechanics and introduced some from other series.

Also, check Nekro out. It's sort of similar in premise, but it's not exactly the same flair of overlord. More like it's Pikmin predecessor.

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.
