Overlord 2

OverlordII is the sequel to the hit warped fantasy action adventure that had players being delightfully despotic. In Overlord II, a new Overlord and a more powerful army of Minions take on the Glorious Empire, an advanced Romanesque nation, in a truly epic, yet familiarly warped, adventure. As the Glorious Empire conquers kingdoms and destroys any sign of magic it finds, it's time to go Minion Maximus with a rousing cry of "Veni, Vidi, Vici" and send in the horde.The Minions return smarter, deadlier (and funnier) and are ready to fight in large scale battles that will see their wild pack mentality squaring up to the organised legions of the Glorious Empire. As ever, they'll do anything and everything the Overlord commands of them, especially now that they can run ravage and wreck buildings and scenery. They've also learnt to ride: In Overlord II, Minions will be able to mount up and ride wolves and other magical creatures around the landscape and take them into battle, making our band of merry fighters faster and fiercer than ever before. Taking the be evil or really evil' theme to terrific new heights of tyranny, the new Overlord is empowered with forces of destruction and domination with which to carve out a new path of evil through the world. And, if the Minions have anything to do with it, that path will no doubt be strewn with the beaten bodies of terminally cute animals and littered with the remains of hippy elves...

I am new to this Overlord series, but man has this taken me by surprise. I picked up a copy of this for my PS3 and I just fell in love since the first quest. I mean the graphics are pretty good and so are other details, but the story line keeps you hooked. The way you also play is new and inventive. I got this because Fable didn't come for the PS3. This game doesn't disappoint at all. The concept of different colored minions having different capabilities adds to this experience, granted there is not a great online experience. The reason why this experience is so new is partly because of the controls. How you move is innovative and when the rumble goes when releasing the minions to a target makes you feel like you are in the game. Definitely pick this copy up for the price and the playability. It will keep you entertained for hours. I am not sure about replay value, but it definitely a good buy.

The game is an all around good game. There are problems with it like any game.The auto save on it sucks because thats the only why to save the game and in order for it to work you have get to certain points in the game to save. I also didnt like the camra mode due to the fact that you cant manual change it so some times you'll be fighting an enemy and you wont be able to see him. But other then that its a really good game for the price. So i would say call game stop and go pick it up. By the way you may see reviews that its like fable its nothing like it so dont lisen to theam.

Review 3 for Overlord 2
The demo won me over.

I hadn't played the original overlord nor did I ever really hear much about it but when the demo popped up I decided to give it a spin. Oh man, it looks like it's shaping up to be incredibly fun. The minions were crazy and funny and killing seals and hippy elves was a blast. and getting your minions to ride wolves into battle was a neat touch. I'll definitely be picking this one up.

Overlord 2 is a flawed, yet very decent game. You are the successor to the previous overlord from Overlord. You go across the lands to conquer the Glorious Empire. Let me start with gameplay. The game play is very good in this game, with just a few flaws. You attack by pressing the X button, use magic by pressing square, and control minions with the right stick. The only flaw is that sometimes it is hard to turn the camera. The graphics are somewhat decent. Sound is okay. The co-op and online could have used a little more work. A solid game that deserves an 8 of 10. Oh, and the elves are hippies in this game!

I thought the first overlord was fun but with the new mounts for the minions, the new way you can either destroy or dominat towns, how you can sometimes become the minions, also how your minions can operat warmachines like catapultes. All of these things and more make Overlord 2 better than the first.

The 1st overlord was fun, exciting, crazy, and just pretty cool allowing you 2 command different monsters that have different powers but now overlord 2 should be even better and a great game for the ps3.
