Overlord II is for people wanting a complete fusion of gameplay and humor. It’s a reject and at the same time one of the proudest members of the fantasy genre, mocking it altogether and deforming the peaceful stereotypes into something nasty and...

A sequel that doesn't really build on the original game. Shoddy graphics, poor camera angles and a lack of strategic gameplay are its key flaws. The only satisfaction drawn out of this game involves sending your minions off to destroy enemies and...

You can do more fun things with your minions, but Overlord II hasn’t shaken some of the issues which held back the first game....

The impish minions of the Overlord universe havent been idle in the two years that have passed since the first game and have emerged with a host of new tricks in Overlord II. The evil little scamps have used the time off to learn how to operate...

Some time has passed since the last Overlord game, and a lot has happened with Codemasters title. Overlord II dances its way onto the Xbox 360, on a high from its previous successes, and largely desired by gamers across the platforms. Overlord II...

What’s the evillest thing you can think of? Now wind it back a bit (we can’t print what you just thought of) and you should find yourself somewhere in the region of heinous war crimes.Now think of another evil thing. Was it slavery? Good!...

Overlord was one of my favorite games of 2007. Its unique gameplay, evil-minded focus and silly sense of humor outshone the technical issues and awkward controls to create a fun and memorable title that proudly sits among my top titles of this...

Edwin MillheimClassification: PG7.5Overlord II Also available on PC, XBox 360 & PS3OverLord II goes forth to spread its off beat humor along with a heaping helping of not so politically correct fun. The outrageously humorous plot is penned by...

Overlord II is a decent game that maintains its predecessor’s greatness, but it doesn’t show enough progression or improvement. The unforgiving checkpoints and host of other problems make it a frustrating experience, making for a sinfully...

If a game that casually encourages you to send a band of slathering, goblin-like minions to gleefully bash in the heads of cute little seals doesn’t pique your interest (or alternately elicit total disgust), I’m not sure what will. Playing...

Verdict: Clever level design, plenty of action and some gloriously crude humour make Overlord brilliant fun. The first Overlord game cast you as an evil warlord in charge of a horde of minions who would kill, loot and destroy anything standing...

International Review By GamePlayer on 80

Det råder allmän brist på bra spel därute där man får spela genuint ond. Visst att man i ett och annat rollspel eller Star Wars-produktion får vandra i moralens skuggland men det är en helt annan sak. Jag menar...

International Review By Looki.de on 79

von Björn Plantholt “Overlord 2“ macht Spaß – keine Frage. Das Spiel hat im Vergleich zum Vorgänger einen erweiterten Umfang, doch sind nicht alle Neuerungen konsequent umgesetzt worden. Beispielhaft dafür ist das...

International Review By Spieletest on 89

Overlord 2 übertrumpft sogar den ersten Teil. Das Szenario ist gekonnt gewählt und Overlord 2 macht einfach nur süchtig und man will nicht mehr aufhören bevor das Spiel beendet ist. Ja, irgendwie hat es einen gewissen Reiz als...

International Review By GameCaptain on 82

Behutsame Neuerungen ergänzen das gelungene -Gameplay, gerade bei der künstlichen Intelligenz hätten Schwachpunkte des Vorgängers allerdings lieber behoben werden sollen. Das teils dümmliche Verhalten von Schergen und Feinden...

International Review By Daily Rush on 70

Overlord II er en blandet oplevelse. På den ene side er spillet et humoristisk tag på den onde anti-helt, et problemfrit interface og gennemført præsentation. På den anden side er der skår i glæden i stort set alle...

International Review By Subdogs on 100

Gladlynt illvilja Det första Overlord gjorde parodi på klassiska fantasyklichéer samtidigt som det lät spelaren ta rollen av en mörkrets furste. I tvåan får man åter igen vara härskare över en skock...
