Product Description

Overlor II is the sequel to the hit warped fantasy action adventure that had players being delightfully despotic. In Overlord II, a new Overlord and a more powerful army of Minions take on the Glorious Empire, an advanced Romanesque nation, in a truly epic, yet familiarly warped, adventure. As the Glorious Empire conquers kingdoms and destroys any sign of magic it finds, it¿s time to go Minion Maximus with a rousing cry of ¿Veni, Vidi, Vici¿ and send in the horde. The Minions return smarter, deadlier (and funnier) and are ready to fight in large scale battles that will see their wild pack mentality squaring up to the organised legions of the Glorious Empire. As ever, they¿ll do anything and everything the Overlord commands of them, especially now that they can run ravage and wreck buildings and scenery. They¿ve also learnt to ride: In Overlord II, Minions will be able to mount up and ride wolves and other magical creatures around the landscape and take them into battle, making our band of merry fighters faster and fiercer than ever before

Story
Overlord II picks up right where the previous game left off. In it the original overlord is no more, and in his absence the order of things have changed dramatically. The comically evil, but still deadly gremlin-like army known as Minions are lost without a leader to focus their chaotic power for good, ill or both. Yet change finally appears to be in the air. Sensing that something is afoot, the Minion horde has made its way north to the town of Nordberg. Here they find a male child the likes of which has not been seen since the coming of the original overlord. This child is obviously special, but time is short and he has much to learn. In recent days a new power has arisen, known as the "Glorious Empire." Based in Roman-like legionary tactics, the power of this new enemy is being used to take over all the relinquished territories of the old overlord, and to extinguish all the magic in the land in order to weaken all potential enemies. As the new overlord it's your task to gain all the strength and skills you can, harness the power of the Minion horde and take back what is yours.

Gameplay - Destroy or Dominate
Overlord II features a brand new corruption system that empowers players to enact their evil will through either domination or destruction. Play as a dominating overlord and villages and people will fall under your command with rewards and benefits coming over time. Follow a destructive path, obliterating anything that stands in your way, and you’ll become a demonic lord of chaos. The choice is yours.

Manage Your Minions
Effective control your Minions was a big part of Overlord, and in Overlord II all four varieties of Minions return smarter, deadlier (and funnier) and are ready to fight in large scale battles that will see their wild pack mentality squaring up to the organized legions of the Glorious Empire. As in the previous game, they'll do anything and everything their overlord commands of them, especially now that they can run ravage and wreck buildings and scenery and each have their own specialty in combat; Browns are the main general use soldier units, Reds with their fire-throwing ability are useful for long-range combat, Greens are experts at stealth maneuvers and Blues provide support and healing to other Minions. In addition, they've also learned a powerful new skill, how to ride. Three of the four kinds of Minions feature exclusive mounts: Browns on wolves, Greens on giant spiders that can climb walls and the Reds on salamanders. Atop their mounts these merry fighters are faster, and stronger than ever before.

Multiplayer Options
Along with a robust single player campaign Overlord II features a wealth of multiplayer play options. Players will enjoy four unique multiplayer campaigns in co-op and versus modes both online and offline, each with their own unique maps. These include:

  • Co-op Modes:
    • Arena Survival – Two players, both as overlords with their own minions, help each other stay alive as they battle against wave after wave of enemies coming at them in an arena setting.
    • Kill A General – Two players, both as overlords with their own minions, go through a series of lands together on a mission to kill a Glorious Empire general.
  • Versus Modes:
    • Treasure Hunt – Two overlords and their minion armies square off against each other to collect gold and other treasure. Whichever overlord has the most treasure at the end of this timed contest wins.
    • King Of The Hill/Capture The Flag – Two overlords and their minions face each other on a battlefield with several hills with flags on top of them. Whoever captures the most flags at the end of this timed event is the winner. Creatures from the overlord world are also on the battlefield wreaking havoc adding an even greater challenge to victory.
Laughter on the Battlefield
Written by award-winning games writer, Rhianna Pratchett, Overlord II puts the laughter into slaughter and continues the series’ trademark humor, playing on the mischievous physical comedy of the minion’s antics with a sprinkling of parody for good measure.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sequel that doesn't suck! June 25, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This year has been full of sequels and many of them have been downright awful, but rest assured if your a Fan of Overlord, Overlord II is worth every penny!

The controls are very familiar with a few enhancements. The same raunchy fun humor that was in Overlord returns along with the 4 minion types and the ability to forge, decorate your private chambers and the portal system that lets you get around from place to place nicely.

Some new features include the ability to resurrect minions who have names at the expense of Life Force. For instance you might have a level 4 minion that you could resurrect for 8 life force. It's a nice touch that prevents you from having to find upgraded weapons and armor for the minions. Mounts, which adds a new level of ability to the minions including jumping onto areas that are otherwise inaccessible even to minions. Minion Control, In various dungeons, you'll run across an item that can be used to swap your body with a minion. A very nice touch that actually lets you run into those nooks and corners that the overlord otherwise couldn't visit.

Additionally, there are two methods of game play. Domination and Destruction. Since all overlords are evil by nature, the developers took the Good vs evil theme and applied it as evil vs really evil. Various quests and your decisions to enslave vs kill peasants will determine which path you've chosen.

While Overlord had a solid story, so far Overlord II feels to me to be a stronger more engrossing story than it's predecessor. I particularly like the touch of starting out as a kid who's getting pelted by snowballs. :)

While I have seen some reviews that complain of only having one button to attack, I think it important to point out that this isn't Halo or GTA.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good *budget* game, not worth $60... July 1, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The first Overlord game was a refreshingly original, so at the time I was happy to pay sixty dollars for it. The second offering, which I rented instead of just buying it on the day of release, is pretty much a retread in familiar territory. Granted, they've added a few things (the minion mounts are cool), and *tried* to fix a few things (camera is improved, but still very annoying), I just couldn't shake the feeling that I was playing a budget title.

Just like in the first, controlling the minions can get quite annoying, especially if in an intense battle. Even with the improvements on the mini map, it can sometimes be unclear what you're supposed to do. The camera is still the worst feature of the game, but this go-around it is due to glitches. (For example, if the camera closes in on a focus point, it often gets stuck in that focused position.)

If you didn't like the first one, this isn't going to change your mind; if you did like the first one (like I did), I'd wait for this one to drop to 30. It really is just a budget title, but its a good budget title. I'm just thankful I rented it instead of diving right in and going for the launch day purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, Funny, and Charming, yet Glitchy July 13, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
It's good to be bad.

Set years after the original Overlord, Overlord 2 is what it was and more. In essence, you control the Overlord, who in turn control the Minions, lovable little imps who come in four convenient colors - Brown, Green, Red, and Blue, with respective elemental powers. You use these minions to fight magical creatures, and solve puzzles in a quest to defeat the corrupt and powerful Empire.

I'm gonna put this out here right now - Overlord 2 is a vast improvement over the original Overlord and it's expansion, Raising Hell. Except they didn't quite improve enough. To get the unpleasantness out of the way right now, there are numerous noticeable pathing errors, control glitches, and the animations for all characters are, quite frankly, sub par. In this technical age, there is no reason or excuse not to have lips look like they're speaking the correct words. And as much as I hate bringing it up, the game also froze up two times for me. The movement of the Overlord seems floaty and insubstantial, and the minion's AI is a bit stupid (whether this is intentional or not is debatable).

The gameplay is a good mixture of old fashioned RTSing and action game hack-and-slashing. The Brown minions are your basic melee troops, the most durable, and able to pick up and use found weapons and armor. The Reds are your ranged units, shooting fireballs and such, very weak in melee combat. The Greens are stealthy, backstabbing little imps with the ability to cloak, and the Blues are the prerequisite medics, reviving fallen minions. You must use each in your quest

To be honest, the reason I was drawn to Overlord 2 was not that I had played the first one, that I liked action-RTS games, or that I had a subconscious desire to do evil.

An all-around solid title, that provides good entertainment for its value, with a lengthy single-player campaign and all the twisted overlording you can bear to enact.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its fun being bad its more fun being evil July 31, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is great. The game play and graphics remind me of Fable 2. The humor is a lot like South Park. You club baby seals, fight rainbow hippy peta elves. Man its fun. I download the demo off live and was hooked. Im a really picky gamer and tend not to love most games but this game is one of my favs. I never played the first game so I can not comment on the differences between the two. It nice to play a game and laugh ,have a good time and not want to throw your controller at the T.V. or listen to a bunch of middle school kids wine. Love the game, I plan on buying the first one
