"Improves on the first game in almost every way. Seems to have a bit more focus on combat and tactics. Both games are good but pick this one."

Happy Halloween Minions!



We do love Halloween, and it’s easily our fourth most favourite time of year. The Minions always seem exceptionally chipper, perhaps it’s because the pumpkin fields are overflowing with their orangey goodness. Unfortunately it’s not all great; one does remember the awful mess that the Minions made last year, who would have known pumpkin vomit would be so explosive.

To distract us from the impending mess, and not to mention the smell, we’ve slashed the prices on the entire Overlord series over on Steam, including the Complete Pack.

Prices start from a spooktacular 87p!

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.

Overlord was one of my favorite games of 2007. Its unique gameplay, evil-minded focus and silly sense of humor outshines the technical problems and awkward controls to sitting a fun and memorable title, the proud to provide to my top titles of this generation.
Overlord 2 have emerged with a host of new tricks. The evil little scamps have used the time off to learn how to operate machinery, wear disguises, sail the open seas, ride mounts, and get possessed by their evil master, as well as develop an uncanny talent for attacking baby seals.
These additions make Overlord II a more varied experience than the first game, and while some of the issues that hampered the original have been addressed, they haven't exactly been fixed.

As you work through Overlord II, find and buy new upgrades for the Overlord, his tower and his squad of female companions will. A new destruction vs. Rule structure choice available and the game tried this as something bigger than it actually is pranks.
There are few real choices to be made in the game - often the decisions are hollow and have the story or your character at all times and do not change the game tells you there is a choice when it really is not. At the end is the real choice, whether the local population to enslave or kill it and will change your alignment. This in turn allows your suite of magic and the little ending voiceover receive influence.

Orgies of destruction against defenseless barrels, fruit boxes or huts are rewarded. Our minions bring us up stöbertes gold, grab elf caps or Roman swords to improve their equipment. By killing them occasionally rise to a rank and fight henceforth subtly better one.
As Overlord, we also have our own underground castle, in which we improve, among other things, the basic configuration of the four types of minions or fallen, experienced fighter revive, by sacrificing a handful of freshmen.

During the last Overlord game straddled many genres, this provides a unique nothing. There are new gameplay elements, to be sure, but none of them build on what made the first Overlord game interesting. Now you can magically transform the Overlord in a favorite at fixed points, but the change is superficial. Catapults, boats and other tools can now be used in large, boring set pieces.
The minions can now ride mounts, but this is largely a superficial change that nothing significant to add to the gameplay.

Your cackling minions are also expressed with enthusiasm, adding even more twisted charm. In fact, most of the voice work in Overlord II is top notch, with the often over-the-top readings fit in well with the exaggerated universe of the game.
The bad news is, there are not enough audio snippets, which means spoken that you hear the same lines over and over again. It's funny to hear your minions adoringly squeal when they offer their ill-gotten treasure to you, but it is grating after a while.

If you liked the first game, then this is worth a purchase. Fans of the original will be prepared for the game's less savory moments and will be more than happy to struggle through for the end result. The ride is incredibly bumpy, but ultimately worth it.

Score: 81 / 100

While a bit less in difficulty than Overlord 1, it has less grinding... ish. Minion wise you usually never have to grind for minions unless you are overly reckless with them. In Overlord 1 I got to one boss who had a ton of HP and just threw all my greens off of him and I think killed them instantly because of that... but other then that, it feels a bit shorter in my opinion.

The usual sequel plague is with it though. Improves some areas, lowers other areas. Buy it if you liked Overlord, but honestly I got them all for PC since they were 5 dollars. I played Overlord as a child and loved it. I suggest Overlord 1 before Overlord 2 if you were thinking of picking one up.

This is an awesome game and an awful port.

Every moment of humor and enjoyment is matched by five moments of frustration caused by the terrible controls.

It's a constant struggle to control your camera let alone your 'overlord' or your minions.

Pros:
+ You’re the bad guy!
+ Humor
+ Wrecking entire villages

Cons:
- Really terrible port
- You’re not actually the Overlord (you have do what your 'minion' tells you to do all the time).
- Never feel in control of your character let alone the story
- VERY on the rails (going of them results only in failure and death)

Just watch the walkthrough videos instead of buying the game, that way you get enjoyment without all the pain.

And you’ll probably have more sense of control too.

I had some lag issues with this game on PC but from console experience this game is the greatest and one of the few games I know where being evil is rewarding and also the central theme, also pretty funny dialogue. Also 3 mistresses means pretty much a harem. Get sex acheive.

Not sure if the game is really just bad, or just not my style, but I really didn't enjoy it. The controls for "sweeping" your minions somewhere were plain unresponsive and didn't work very well. And when it did work, the minion pathing was terrible and they would get stuck on stupid little bits of scenery all over. Super annoying, and it is a big part of the game. The humor didn't do it for me either.

Two minutes into the game, kid Overlord beats ♥♥♥♥♥♥ kids up with a stick, blows up their ice fortress with obscenely huge bottle rockets, and steals their clothes for tone-deaf minions. Plan to ruin Christmas celebration with more bottle rockets when Glorious Roman Ripoff Empire starts launching stones. Skinny monocled ♥♥♥♥♥♥ demands a magic user be sacrificed. Peasant throws kid Overlord over the wall. Kid get more minions, beats up soldiers with a stick, and steals their catapault. More soldiers die, things get flattened, fun times had, aim sucks. Minions mount wolves, more soldiers die.

Free random giant cyclops yeti thing. Yeti breaks random ice lake. Yeti and kid get frozen.

You know, normal kid stuff.

Being a evil lord controlling evil minions to do your every bidding and destroying innocent creatures to build your evil nether kingdom, is priceless....
