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.

I really loved both games, however in my honest opinion this game is an improved version of the first game
You don't need to know much about the first game to be able to play this one, the only thing you should know is that you're the son of the Overlord you play as in the first one
This game does require a tad more tactics, however it's still fairly easy to complete
The addition that I really like is how you're able to choose between Destruction and Domination instead of just good or evil, of course I chose for Destruction, who wouldn't?

TL;DR if you're going to choose between buying Overlord 1 and 2, get this one

Awesome game with a frustrating save-point system. No manual saves to be had, and dying leads to doing a lot of (sometimes very frustrating) things over again. It's like Fable... only you're evil whether you like it or not. -and the only interaction you have with citizens is murdering them or brainwashing them. -and you have an army of evil minions that do your bidding. You know what, it's nothing like Fable. You do collect currency and charms to level your character's attributes, upgrade armor & weapons, etc., so it has some RPG elements. It has a great art style, it's charming, and you should play it.

Overlord 2 picks up where raising hell more or less left off, with the Overlad and his rise to take his father's place. While admittedly I'd have preferred spending more time as the young Overlad before he comes into his full measure, the game is a capable sequel with a couple of anti-frustration bells and whistles attached as you once again ravage the landscape and allow your minions to outfit themselves as they see fit.

On a side note, it was nice to see one of my decisions in Overlord was apparently canonical.

While I loved the first game to death, and found it replayable... I did not play this game previously, and find this sequel to be a flawed, rushed cash grab. This is also a badly ported PS3 title, with a clunky key layout for movement and looking etc. Minions are somehow less intelligent in this sequel than the first, and the level layouts and designs make less logical sense than again, the previous title.

In a sense, it feels like the game is a generic copy with all the POP elements like graphics and explosions and fire to appeal to a mindless audience. Unlike it's predecessor, which had a very nonlinear feel to it; This sequel feels very barred and grindy.

I would not recommend unless you have a fondness for expensive time wasters. A fairly expensive timewaster.

Not as good as the first one, however I still love it! The world doesnt feel as connected as it did in raising hell, and I dont like how the camera hovers above the overlord instead of how it used to be (behind him). Everything else is great, highly reccomend! Yall need to hurry up and make overlord 3!

Vastly superior to the first game in every way, this game is a real evil treat as you send half brainded gremlins out to do your bidding pikmin style, the game has thrown in a real self aware sense of humor as well as new aspects and mechanics that keep gameplay fresh, it still has some area's it could use some significant polish, particularly the cutscenes, a few seemed to suffer from drunk cameramen who fell asleep on the job. Still the game is worth much more actual gameplay time than the first which can get you stuck on an area for hours, there's still a tiny hint of that in Overlord 2 but not so much so that it becomes a problem. If you can catch it on a sale (Halloween is usually a good time) Overlord is well worth your time if you enjoy a bit of slapstick, pikmin, and some crude evil humor.

This game is the one of the few gems that come around once in a lifetime. Very few franchises can keep their good points on the same level and yet they've made it better.

Overlord 1 was amazing due to its uncaring option of extreme brutality, or the option of a slightly less brutal. Not only has that feeling been forged anew but it has been made in the dimetrium forge.

10/10 would club seals again.

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.

Overlord's a pretty unique game. You play as an evil Overlord who commands a small army of goblin-like minions to do his dirty work for him. At the outset, you'll be able to keep 15 under your control at a time, and that number will rise as you move forward in the story. There's something viscerally satisfying watching your minions wreak havoc on an enemy town - the little guys gleefully destroying everything in sight while the occupants run around in terror, many of them with a minion or two clinging to their backs and clubbing them to death. Mayhem and chaos ensues and it's entertaining to watch, and you can wade into the fray and knock things around with a huge axe if you don't feel like sitting on the sidelines.

If it sounds too dark, don't worry - the game has a great morbid sense of humor and doesn't try to play it straight, so it's never depressing or disturbing. The game pokes fun at fantasy conventions too - early on you make enemies of the elves, who are literal tree-hugging hippies who are pretty upset that you've been clubbing baby seals to death to harvest life force for your growing army. The primary villians are a Roman-style Empire, who are rounding up and killing magic beings (like you and your minions), and the story takes jabs at ancient Rome sterotypes. Your senior minion advisor also narrates things for you, and the detest he expresses for the more beautiful side of fantasy settings is pretty hilarious.

The game plays well, but there are problems with the controls. Later on, combat demands precise control over your minions, and the game doesn't really do that well enough. It leads to some frustrating moments where you're fumbling around trying to give the right orders to your minions, while your enemies are picking them off - giving you a taste of the confusion you normally cause. Some of the genre's typical sins come here too - there's a couple of clunky vehicle sequences, and at least one forced stealth section. To the game's credit, these segments aren't nearly as infuriating as you'd expect, but they still felt unnecessary and weren't very fun.

Overall it's a fun game, and I recommend it despite its shortcomings - especially to players who enjoy "summoner" type characters in other action RPGs (such as Diablo), or those who are looking for something different in the genre.

S great concept and a fun game. Very limited so dont expect too much depth or much longevity even if, like me, you try and squeeze every last drop of entertainment out of it because you like the concept so much. It has a very quirky style and some progression which makes you feel like your doing a little more than reading a script. But it is so very linear that even some clever game design cannot really hide it.

There is no open world and the way the progression is limited within the context of the game can be obvious enough to be annoying.

However, its on sale a lot and while I wouldnt pay full price. For the low price I paid it was worth it.

I like the game for its humour and quirkiness but it could have been so very much more. What I would have liked to see would have been the following:

Open world
Better development of the tower less tied into obvious story markers.
Remove every trace of being a linear progression.
Less puzzle solving, more battle.
More depth in the management of captured towns and cities with the effort making it harder or easier to defend.
All round depth.

Getting a thumbs up because it is well worth buying..

Overlord II

Yeah, its pretty sweet. It improves on just about everything that the original lacked or did not have and it added a bunch of its own elements, a good example is when you get to play as a minion.... or the times that you get to drive a freak'in boat like a pirate. (It did degrade on the magic for some reason, tho as much as I hate it, its not bad) The Spire Thing that you live in has alos been upscaled, there is alot more to do in the tower say... revive your favorite fallen minions (yes there is even that and they all have their own names).

Multiplayer: There is none anymore (which I dont care for really much anyway)

8/10 overall, and if I was a ♥♥♥♥♥ I would have givin it a 7.6.
Good game, worth your time.

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.

Score: 8/10

The original Overlord game was essentially a cult classic and I gladly consider myself one of those that absolutely loved it. I actually prefer how the original game handled some of the aspects such as armor/weapon upgrades. The upgrade options make more sense, but I felt you had to grind for money way to often and just ended up almost skipping it entirely.

The addition of mounts for your minions was actually amazing and probably the main thing that sets this game above the original. My main complaint with the game is honestly it just doesn't feel like it is as fleshed out as it could have been when it comes to things like controling the towns. I loved putting down a revolt, but since it only happens once per town it isn't even really a spoiler. The mistresses are handled the way they should be.

The magic felt weak for some reason to me. The spells help and all, but I never really felt like an all poweful cast sacrifcing minions for personal gain. I enjoyed the idea of minion level up system and bringing back high levels from the dead, but to be honest I never used it.

The game still has the same minion types as the original which is very balanced still. The tactics of killing commanders and using catepults was very enjoyable. The ability to mind control a minion and lead an assault or stealth mission was great. The games dark humor is always enjoyable. It still seems to have choices which are essentially evil vs chaos evil.

The main thing that I wish it had more of was funny bosses like Melvin Underbelly from the original. I did als find it strange that blues never got a mount when I kept thinking they would get a frog or a slug mount. Overall the humor and variety of gameplay make it a neat nitch market title.

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.
