Love sending my minions into deathYoman282 | July 30, 2014 | See all Yoman282's reviews »
I had a lot of fun with this game commanding my minions and sending them to death, I just love feeling like a boss. In this game you have your army of minions which you send to do stuff for you and you have few types of minions. I don't have much to say about this game other than that it's fun, I recommend this, especially with the DLC.

You are the evil overlord waken up to lead an army of demons and command them to do your dirty deeds!
The unique aspects of the game: One, you're not really fighting yourself you're commanding hordes of different imps to help you past trough the game. There are various different imps good at various different things so choose your army carefully! And at the same time you're not playing with an RTS view point. Your hero is standing right there, in front of you, being vulnerable as you command hordes of your followers. Two, you're the anti-hero. You're evil and made to do evil things. You can still do good things, but nobody will blame you if you do bad things. This is something very few games do.
Just for the sole uniqueness alone I would recommend it. Though the game does story telling in an entertaining way too, so stay a while and listen to it :)

Story: You're an Overlord, Awoken after many years you will control your minions and rule all!
Graphics: Different art style, Fable-Esque
Audio: Hilarious dialogue, Always funny to hear "For you master!"
Missions: Your run of the mill quests, Save damsel, kill big boss, get gold, etc. Controls: Innovative minion mouse controls, Not so much keyboard controls.
Features: Minion control, Tower customization, forging your own weapons
A.I.: Minions are smart, pillage what you want them to, retrieve items for you, kill all each with their own skills
Loading Times: Quick, Not many
Multiplayer: Not the most exciting but different at most
Requirements: Average, A little demanding
Weapons: Mainly your minions but you can forge and use your own armor and weapons such as axes, maces, and swords.
The Good: New idea of evil and minion control
The Bad: Can get frustrating due to controls not working out, same with camera angles, only at times though.
The Ugly: Your right hand minions, Gnarl
Replay Ability: About twice, one doing all good, one doing all evil
The Bottom Line: A fun game that adds a new mark on the RPG world with innovative minion control and customization of your hero.
It's good to be bad, but it's better to be evil.Fusionfan45 | Jan. 27, 2014 | See all Fusionfan45's reviews »
Overlord is an incredibly fun and intriguing action-adventure game, with strategy elements mixed in. The story is quite simple, for most of the game. You're the evil Overlord, and rule over an army of minions. Your tower has been ransacked, your predecessor is dead, and the heroes who destroyed it have fallen.
The story is good, and while it's minimal for most of the game, there's plenty of hints that lead up to an explosion of information at the end.
The gameplay is where it truly shines, though. You have an army of minions to control, which just so happens to come in four colors, brown, red, blue, and green. Browns are melee fighters, reds are archers, blues are healers, and greens are assassins with high damage and low health. You have four different abilities to control the minions. You can send them out to attack a target, sweep them along freely, call them back, or put them on a guard post to defend an area. It's incredibly fluid, and works wonderfully.
There's also the corruption system, which determines if you're redeemed or corrupted, resulting in different endings.
The game is incredibly fun, has fun level design, and a good sense of humor. That's the good. Then, there's the bad.
The bad happens to be two big flaws. Those flaws are the following:
A.) THERE IS NO MINIMAP. This causes Evernight forest to be drawn out, and incredibly slow.
B.) The Overlord's attacks are by no means fluid or fun at all.
Aside from those issues, however, I love this game, and would highly suggest it.
