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.

This is a much bigger game that the original Overlord. Here you command war machines and ships. The areas are more detailed and offer more adventure. Also, your minnions can gain "mounts" to ride into battle. Brown, Green, and Red each get a unique mount. The is plenty of enjoyable fun. Some areas are better than others but I'm sure that will be a personal feeling for each player. I enjoyed the greatly expanded world. New play mechanics like "minnion possession" are really fun. The Overlord series is about enjoying yourself and ravaging the world with your minnion hordes. The ability to choose and combine 4 different types of minnions means every battle can be replayed countless times. I really liked these light-hearted Overlord games that always provide new challenges and keep player enjoyment foremost during the entire game. Replay for Overlord 2 is very high and honestly fun. This series is a big sleeper that many people missed but thanks to Steam you can enjoy the experience. I rate Overlord 2 and 8 out of 10.
Overlord 2 is the secuel of the awesome Overlord 1 (what a shock!), in this game you had to do all the evil that your twisted mind could ever imagine (in a cartoonish word) with your bare hands and the help of your super evil (and charming) minions. This game is pure fun and some times pure frustration if you forget how to use some mechanics of it, so in order to beat it, you need to became a master on the ways of evil. The good: +Funny as the original. +Smooth gameplay +New cool spells and skills +Interesting story telling +A Beatiful word to explore and over all... to conquer and destroy. +You can kill cute creatures! The Bad. +The game sometimes kill you with 1 hit. +Its a lineal game but some times it's not clear what you had to do. +Kinda shot. +Some times the game is way too goofy. Overall, this game is a unique experience, I recomended it to everyone that loves evil and unique games with unique gameplay.
This game offers a grand and unique gamestyle which allows you to choose and develop your own tiny army and balance between tanks, healers, melee and ranged. And depending on how you chose to act in the game also affects what perks you'll earn later on in the game.
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 :)
