Overlord™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. Taking the ‘be evil or really evil' theme to terrific new heights of tyranny, the new Overlord is empowered with forces of destruction and domination with which to carve out a new path of evil through the world. And, if the Minions have anything to do with it, that path will no doubt be strewn with the beaten bodies of terminally cute animals and littered with the remains of hippy elves…

Overlord 2 Multiplayer info:
Multiplayer is for 2 people both online and offline.
The offline version is split screen.
There are 4 multiplayer games each of which has their own distinct map.
Two of the multiplayer games are Co-op:
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.
The other two multiplayer games are Versus:
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.
Destroy or Dominate: A brand new corruption system 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.
For YOU, Master! Your Own Personal Minion Horde: It's the Minion horde versus the armies of the Glorious Empire army. Organised troops of 50+ enemies attacking in formation, led by Generals, against the wild, outrageous, horde mentality of Minions. Browns, Reds, Blues and Greens return stronger, smarter, faster badder and funnier. Always on the chaotic side of organised anarchy, the Minions are smarter and deadlier in their skills than ever before. Their horde mentality is as wild and outrageous as ever and their loyalty to their Overlord has not changed – they'll do anything and everything (and then a bit more) that's commanded of them, even if it's a Kamikaze mission.
Browns – Thuggish and brutal, the Browns love a fight and mouthing off. Your own personal tank.
Reds – The Overlord's pyromaniacs, these minions are grumpy little fireball-throwing demons.
Greens – Insidious and sneaky, the Greens make up the Overlord's stealth assassin horde.
Blues – More ethereal and Zen-like, the Blues will use their powers of healing on fallen comrades. Their magic also allows them to harmlessly pass through enemy lines.
For ME, Master? Smarter and Deadlier Minions: 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. The Minions have also learnt (just about) the covert art of disguise and the ability to work together to operate war machines. With the addition of the Minion Graveyard in your Netherworld palace, players can now resurrect fallen Minions and keep them throughout the campaign.
Playing for laughs: Written by award-winning games writer, Rhianna Pratchett, Overlord II puts the laughter into slaughter and continues the series' trademark humour, playing on the mischievous physical comedy of the minion's antics with a sprinkling of parody for good measure.

Very fun VERY funnyI 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.

Not Perfect, but goodOverlord 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!

its worth the monyeThe 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.

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.
