Rated 9 out of 10 by skillz_that_kill Amazing for the price and playability!
I am new to this Overlord series, but man has this taken me by surprise. I picked up a copy of this for my PS3 and I just fell in love since the first quest. I mean the graphics are pretty good and so are other details, but the story line keeps you hooked. The way you also play is new and inventive. I got this because Fable didn't come for the PS3. This game doesn't disappoint at all. The concept of different colored minions having different capabilities adds to this experience, granted there is not a great online experience. The reason why this experience is so new is partly because of the controls. How you move is innovative and when the rumble goes when releasing the minions to a target makes you feel like you are in the game. Definitely pick this copy up for the price and the playability. It will keep you entertained for hours. I am not sure about replay value, but it definitely a good buy.
Rated 10 out of 10 by BigBoris LONG LIVE THE OVERLORD!!!
I love the Overlord game series! I wish a version would be made for the PS Vita, but that'll probably never happen. Anyway, This game is just as much fun as the first Overlord. I love the humorous take on everything storybook in these games, Being Bad never felt so Awesome! LOL!
Rated 8 out of 10 by Halfling596 Not Perfect, but good
Overlord 2 is a flawed, yet very decent game. You are the successor to the previous overlord from Overlord. You go across the lands to conquer the Glorious Empire. Let me start with gameplay. The game play is very good in this game, with just a few flaws. You attack by pressing the X button, use magic by pressing square, and control minions with the right stick. The only flaw is that sometimes it is hard to turn the camera. The graphics are somewhat decent. Sound is okay. The co-op and online could have used a little more work. A solid game that deserves an 8 of 10. Oh, and the elves are hippies in this game!
Rated 9 out of 10 by goldelocks its worth the monye
The game is an all around good game. There are problems with it like any game.The auto save on it sucks because thats the only why to save the game and in order for it to work you have get to certain points in the game to save. I also didnt like the camra mode due to the fact that you cant manual change it so some times you'll be fighting an enemy and you wont be able to see him. But other then that its a really good game for the price. So i would say call game stop and go pick it up. By the way you may see reviews that its like fable its nothing like it so dont lisen to theam.
Rated 0 out of 10 The demo won me over.
I hadn't played the original overlord nor did I ever really hear much about it but when the demo popped up I decided to give it a spin. Oh man, it looks like it's shaping up to be incredibly fun. The minions were crazy and funny and killing seals and hippy elves was a blast. and getting your minions to ride wolves into battle was a neat touch. I'll definitely be picking this one up.
Rated 10 out of 10 by gandalf Very fun VERY funny
I thought the first overlord was fun but with the new mounts for the minions, the new way you can either destroy or dominat towns, how you can sometimes become the minions, also how your minions can operat warmachines like catapultes. All of these things and more make Overlord 2 better than the first.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Soultrain20 BEST GAME EVER (after Killzone)
My brother got the first one and told me to check it out, and i got to say that being able to control your minions makes you feel like and Overlord. So i don't doubt for one second this game wont be an better.

The 1st overlord was fun, exciting, crazy, and just pretty cool allowing you 2 command different monsters that have different powers but now overlord 2 should be even better and a great game for the ps3.
