Step into the warped fantasy world of Overlord: Fellowship of Evil, the dark and twisted Action RPG filled with the series’ signature black humour. Penned by award-winning original Overlord scriptwriter Rhianna Pratchett, Overlord: Fellowship of Evil delivers an epic new quest featuring four Netherghūls – undead servants of the dark arts, resurrected in the absence of a true Overlord, to bring evil back to a world overrun by the forces of good.
Assisting gamers once again are the mighty, maniacal and occasionally moronic minions, ready to unleash their charmingly chaotic brand of destruction and led by Gnarl, their wise old master, voiced, as before, by actor Marc Silk.
Embark on a brand new Overlord adventure in single-player or with up to three friends in local and online single-screen co-op. Filled with fun combat and twisted fantasy tales, Overlord: Fellowship of Evil invites players to dive into an Action RPG where it’s good to be bad, but it’s GREAT to be evil.
Overlord is the only series that actively encourages players to have fun being the embodiment of evil, destroying all that is good in a subversive, comedic manner. Fellowship of Evil captures this essence and adds in four-way, chaotic co-op play where gamers can even turn on each other. Evil always finds a way...sometimes it just needs a bit of a nudge.
Series signature dark, mischievous humour Award-winning scriptwriter Rhianna Pratchett returns with a twisted and hilarious tale of evil, chaos, Minions and the burning desire to destroy all things good!
Develop your minions! They’re back! Our cruel critters return. Call upon your minions in battle and build them into dedicated devils to do your destructive bidding. “For the Master!”

Overlord: Fellowship of Evil takes the classic Pikmin-esque formula of previous Overlord games and throws it out the window for a more dungeon-crawler formula and suffers for it. Oh does it ever suffer. In Overlord: Fellowship of Evil you are a resurrected evil person with little to no relation to the previous Overlords, with each one having their own unique abilities, spells, and weapons. At first this seems like an ok system, one that would allow for good co-op, but then you realize that it came at the expense of what made the Overlord games good: the Pikmin-esque minions. Now they are mindless AI npcs that cannot be controlled, which given that the levels are littered with stage-hazards that immediately turn minions into enemies and that there is no way to tell them to go around, almost completely ruins the game and what made the previous Overlord games so fun: the minions. Overlord: Fellowship of Evil made numerous unnecessary changes, some that could have actually potentially worked had other changes not been so completely atrocious in both design and result. Don’t play this unless you are an Overlord completionist, and even then I would still recommend against it.
Overlord is a game franchise quite unique. You play as the Overlord (Hence the name), an evil Sauron-type master of darkness that leads legions of evil creatures. Your goal is to conquer the world (Yeah, like Brain and Pinky). It's an hack'n slash game where you have to order your minions to do the job. The previous games were very good and original. This one, however, is a different beast. The story is quite cool, thanks to Miss Pratchett's efforts, and the presentation is good. But that's the game only qualities. Fellowship of Evil is buggy and unbalanced. We're not talking about funny glitches that happen once in while. We're talking major bugs that cripple the gameplay. For instance the minions' AI might not work at all, making your precious evil soldiers completly useless. Sometime it will be impossible to summon minions too! And fighting alone could become your better option... in an Overlord game! It's too bad that the game is such a mess. It could have been a major entry in the series.
