  • Donning the armour of the Overlord, players become commander-in-chief of a fighting, thieving and pillaging horde of crazed minions
  • Controlling the minions is slick and devastating, requiring a flick of the Wii Remote to send the raucous rabble into battle
  • Individual Minions can be plucked from the horde, held by the neck and then, by vigorously shaking the Wii Remote, throttled! This stirs up the volatile lifeforce within them and they become a manic minion missile
  • this exclusive Overlord adventure for Wii tells a new and twisted fairy tale. The lead character is in a Cinderella scenario with his elder and rather unpleasant brother and sister.

Product Description

Overlord Dark Legend is a brand new action adventure steeped in fairy tale lore with sinister, satirical twists. Set in a time before the original game (Overlord, 2007), players step into the role of a new younger Overlord and revel in command of the most vicious, yet lovable little critters in gaming ¿ the Minions. Forming a unique rampaging army, the Minions are a demonic, slavish and loyal horde of imp-like critters predisposed to violence. No matter: they¿re always ready and willing to follow even the most suicidal order, whether it's raiding villages for kicks and giggles or hurling themselves at enemies in the face of kamikaze odds in the beautifully rendered game world. With a story and characters that poke playful fun at fantasy cliché, our trainee tyrant will be able to take his growing pains out on the local fairy tale inhabitants as he protects his castle and lands

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Wii Exclusive July 5, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I really wanted to review Overlord:Dark Legend because no one has done so, and I think this is a good game, and I want anyone who's thinking about buying it to know that. This is my first review, so I'll try my best.

Ok, well first off just a little about me: I'm a 24 yr old female, and I'm not what you'd call a "hardcore gamer" or anything, but I do like QUALITY games. I'm new to the Overlord series.

That being said, I definitely think this title is a good one. First of all, it is NOT a port or watered-down version of Overlord or Overlord II from the Xbox. This is a brand new game developed exclusively for Wii, which is nice in and of itself. It is a prequel to Overlord I (Xbox 360), and tells the story of young Overlord's rise. Basically, in this game you go about defending your realm from various evils (including your evil siblings) with the help of your minions, of which there are 4 colors, each with different abilities. You order your minions about to do your bidding. (I've heard this is similar to Pikmin, though I have never played Pikmin so I can't say for sure). As you progress through the game, you earn the ability to have more minions "spawned" at the same time, as well as earning upgraded armor, weapons, and minions. You direct your minions to move objects out of the way, smash things up, fight enemies, retrieve objects that are out of your reach, etc. You also learn various spells over the course of the game, such as creating a lightening bolt, shielding yourself and your minions, and slowing your enemies. If you want to know more of the plot, that can be found on the internet so I'll skip over that and get to the kind of stuff I would want to know before buying.

The characters are fun for the most part.

5.0 out of 5 stars Combination of Pikmin and Goblin Commander July 6, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Overlord: Dark Legend is essentially what you would get if you crossed Pikmin with Goblin Commander. You, the Overlord, have a group of goblin-like Minions following you around that will obey your every command--from fighting enemies and moving objects to sacrificing themselves for you. The result is a game that mixes action-RPG elements with a touch of strategy.

Controls: 9/10 You use the Wii remote pointer to guide your minions. By holding the "B" button you can sweep them anywhere on screen. If they encounter breakable objects or enemies they will kill/destroy it. You can call them back with the "A" button. You can choose which specific type of Minions you wish to command, or you can choose to guide all Minions at one time. Your Overlord can also attack if needed. Fortunately, the camera works very well. The "C" button centers the camera behind the Overlord, and you can hold it to turn with the Wii remote pointer. So far, I have had no camera problems to speak of.

Graphics: 8/10 For a Wii game, the graphics are pretty good. There's plenty of color, and the characters look nice. I haven't seen anything so far that was particularly unimpressive.

Sound/Music: 9/10 The music is appropriate for the game, and not overbearing. The voice acting is really good. Some chracters sound kind of silly, but it's kind of meant that way. There's plenty of humor in this game, and the voices add that extra touch of quirkiness.

Story: 8/10 Nothing particularly magnificent, but the way the story is told is great. Gnarl, your soon to be advisor, narrates the background (great voice acting here, and pretty humorous). Apparently your father, Duke of Gromgard, wasn't doing a particularly good job of keeping his kingdom prosperous.

2.0 out of 5 stars Way too short. October 16, 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love the Overlord games. I was really excited to get one for the Wii because the PC version was giving me fits.

The game play is great, the story line is hilarious, the duration of the game is WAY TOO SHORT!

I beat this game in a few hours, even doing almost all of the side quests,what a bummer, I really wish I would have just rented it.

I definitely would recommend people playing this game, but rent or borrow it, its too expensive to buy for how little game play you get out of it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Maybe not for kids July 19, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I rated this game based on my 10 year old son's opinion. My son loves it, but my DH has banned him from playing it. Why? Because there is cursing in it and the intro to it tells you how you will be a great evil person and love killing and smashing things. "Evil always finds a way". Now, this did not bother me as much as my husband. But then I saw AND heard the cursing (the written lines are said outloud). My kids don't watch stuff above PG and they don't hear us cursing. So, that kind of thing makes a difference to us. If you are interested in this game, please take note of those two items. We had never heard of the Overlord series and I bought this purely based on kpurple2's opinion (So, I didn't know about it's theme and most reviews just said that it was just like the other games without defining what the other games were like). After playing it, I did not find that review as "conservative" as she made it sound.

I think the game is cute/silly and easy (which is why my son loves it). And I don't even mind the violence (mostly smashing things right now...he is not very far along). But, it did bore me...same things over and over again. Will we let him play it again? Probably. But, I wanted to put my two cents in about why it might not be appropriate for younger players.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unimpressive
The controls were awkward, and the game itself in general not particularly fun. I was generally disappointed with the game in all its aspects. Not worth the money spent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overlord Dark legands
Very good game. Good graphics and intresting story line though not quite as good as overlord 2. If a fan of the overlord games then its worth getting.
