"Overall, Overlord II is a great follow-up to the original Overlord title, and it's certainly deserving of being a true sequel." - Worthplaying.com

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 II - reviewNeapolis47 | Sept. 13, 2013 | See all Neapolis47's reviews »
Overlord 2 is a game that has features that are not common to other games. We are an overlord, during the games we should collect vital force for our crew, large objects, gold and two types of gems to be able to upgrade. There will be four types of servers and they are: the browns that will be the most durable and the most suitable ones in the battle, the reds for ranged attacks, the greens that are the killers, in fact they will be much more effective if they attack the enemy at shoulders; the blue that are weaker ones but which are able to cure the other crew and are also able to become invisible during movements. In the game there are various enemies which are distinguished for appearance and for strength and ability, and gradually become stronger. Ben made the various bosses, especially those animals that must be defeated by hitting the weak points. Overlord 2 is a well-made game with good gameplay characters well done and interesting, only flaws in the melee could be established more combos and towards to the end of the game it tends to be repetitive. It 'a good job, but with some extra things the game would have assumed a higher value.

Coming up from the great predecessor, Overlord 2 delievers what fans were hoping for.
The game is taking every good idea from the prequel and improves it even more. Basically it is Overlord on steroids, with updated graphics, new features, new archnemesis and loads of humour, wicked, as we like it.
Great game to hop into, wreak some havoc, kick some minions and forget about all the troubles. Since there are not many games like that out there - a must have for any Dungeon Keeper fan :)

As excellent as the first game, Overlord 2 offers you an evil epic steeped in humor and parody of joyful tale of chivalry. What if this is it's always a pleasure to do evil and evil can now expand its land to the nose of the glorious empire. The news are not many, but the change of scenery really is that we take the trouble to manhandle the minions, faithful servants of the overlord! The atmosphere is successful, there are very few bugs and the story is amusing. In short, this game is a treat and I especially recommend it to those with a penchant for the wacky games can also be an Overlord.
Domination or Destruction!kalil | May 30, 2013 | See all kalil's reviews »
Embodying the very same evil, and with the help of our minions, we conquer lands, in youth, dared betray and surrender to the glorious empire, we now have the opportunity to decide whether to retaliate and massacre them all and implanter destruction or give them the feeling of protection for us to obey with blind faith domination caused by a little Malefica Presence.
Being Destroyer or be the Dominator, choosing between these two pathways evolve our tower and our powers Averno change that will see altered by it, as well as our 3 dear.
New addition to our minions that now equate to the battlefield and will be able to have their mounts, as well as go up in level and even to resurrect our favorites.
Surprise the end, but want to continue with the hope that comes the third part.

Overlord, on it's release, was a hidden gem in it's own roundabout way. A diamond in the rough for every pikmin-loving dungeon master hiding behind their cold, hard, lifeless computer screens. It's sequel, easily enough, Overlord II, is no different story. The story picks up where the original game left off, with the young overlord, offspring of the first game's commander. Gnarl, grumpy and barb-tounged as ever, joins alongside his previous master's son for more mayhem. This sequel expands on the original game, while keeping every part of the original that made it great. Now, minions are still expendable, but you may resurrect your higher-level minions for a high fee. The overlord feel is slathered on like nutella on toast for a sugar-addict in this extension of the series. Nothing is more pleasing than crushing platoons of Roman-esque legionaires and conquering cities. The city conquering is unique and fun in the respect that you choose rather to enslave the populace for tax income, or destroy the town and kill the inhabitants in order to get instantaneous weaponry and goods. The decision is satisfying either way. The locations and soundtrack are lush and well written, including environment puzzles that must be conquered with your minions. They aren't easy, and give a decent puzzle flavor to the series, with being in-no-way overbearing. In the long and short of the sword of opinion, for any Overlord series fan, this game is a must. New players can also fall in love with the series from this platform, an effect from good scriptwriting.
