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.

For as long as I could, I remember struggling with an issue of my identity. I had always felt different. When boys had wanted to play football, I wanted to sit in my evil lair and think of how to destroy the universe. While other people played video games, I looked up the most vunerable parts of the U.S.A.'s defense.

I've tried to hide this ever since I was born, but I can't do it anymore. I had thought about ending it all, but i've always stopped myself at the last minute, until moments before I played this game.

I was holding my staff of magical evil directly to my head to burn it on fire, when I saw this game pop-up on the sales list.

I bought it.

I have know accepted my true evil overlord self, and i've begun taking over the state of vermont.

10/10

This game looks great for 2009. Great art style. This game is goofy, fun to look at, cute, charming, and super simple. It's a great game for a 10 year old boy or stoner.

A frustrating mix of great concept and terrible execution. I can't tell if I had more fun than controller-hurling rage.

Every challenge is a wall of invulnerable guards that you get past by positioning a horde of reds at just the right spot to take out the captain. Sometimes you get to use a catapult or ballista. Strategy is fairly irrelevant.

Every game has bugs, but it's the design choices that will drive you batty. What should have been a simple set of menus accessed from a keypress is instead a vast dungeon with rooms spread to the far corners, where your slow-walking avatar must trudge too, then wade through pointless "elevator" animations, and then even more animations before you can interact with the ungangly UI to manage a single resource. We're supposed to feel like we're entering a whimsical world, but mostly you just cry when you realize you have to trudge back across the entire dungeon to perform an upgrade.

The magic system could have been completely removed without any loss to game play. You get four spells. You'll see a tutorial once. Then the spells seem to work by context, but despite a lot of experimentation, I couldn't figure out what the parameters were. I suspect it requires very precise targetting and timing that is more likely to happen by chance than by intent. But when you do get a spell to work, the effect is so underwhelming that it never seems worth the bother, and you certainly don't need them to complete the game, nor do they make it any easier.

Then you get awarded women as trophy mistresses. It's just as shallow and pointless as it sounds.

One of my favorite games when I want to play as the villain.
Plunder the poor, destroy homes, annihilate the enemy and control a army of minions.
Of course, destroying everthing thats cute.

Because in the end, Evil Always finds a way

On Mac game is impossible to play because of the camera problems - it's way too sensitive and unfortunately decreasing sensitivity in settings doesn't help at all.

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.

K I've never written a review before but this game deserves it.

Story time

So I have a minion named Slain who has this bomb ♥♥♥ hat and he accidently died about 5 hours into the game, so I was a little ♥♥♥♥♥♥ and deppresed. Play the game for another 2 hours then decide to go to the minion burrow, and what do I find.... A guy that can ressurect Slain. Now Slain and I will be the evilist overlords there ever was.

10/10 Would resurrect a slain Slain again.
