About the Product

  • 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

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.

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.

Just when you think the Wii has nothing to offer for the core gamer, along comes Overlord- Dark Legend, and I must say that it's a better experience than it's Xbox360 counterparts; at least in my opinion.

Graphics- Actually some of the best graphics for Wii. This game resembles "Fable" for the Original Xbox due to it's "glowy" appearance. Lots of color, the Overlord himself is detailed quite nicely and the graphical effects are pretty good. I thought the backgrounds were done well, but the fact that the Wii DOESN'T have an analog stick dedicated to camera control will only speak against "draw distance" (which you really can't talk about too much).
For what the Wii's capable of, this is a very good looking game and one of the Wii's best excluding first party titles. I was amazed at the detail. The little things like sunflowers or pumpkin patches or houses all pack detail.

Score- 7/10

Control- The control's simple enough, but at times I wish there was a "C-stick" so that I could rotate the camera with me, instead, the actual "C" button centers the camera, Z button is attack, A button is to call minions, B button is to make them attack or move to the desired direction you choose and you use the Wii-mote to point on the screen which serves as a cursor. There are other button uses like the Minus button which is used for the menu, and either 1 or 2 being used for pause.
One thing I didn't like about this game is that there's no way to exit it or go to the main menu, you simply exit the game and it autosaves; period. This can be especially confusing if you didn't get a manual for this game.

Score- 8/10

Sound- I loved the sound. The music is forgettable but reminiscent of middle ages themed movies.
