A Must Own!

by wingnutz27 on 6/26/2009

If you liked the first one you will love this sequel! Better graphics and game play! Much more evil in this one than the first! In the first mission you start off as Overlad (Overlord as a boy), funny as hell! But by the second mission you are full grown and back to normal Overlording! Don't wait, go get it!!!!!

Product Overview

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 an entire empire in a truly epic adventure, inspired by the rise of the Roman Empire. As the Glorious Empire conquers kingdoms and destroys any sign of magic it finds, it's time to go Minion Maximus and send in the horde.

Review It's kind of a cliche in BDSM circles that the sub is really the one in charge of things, and it's a truism that easily carries over into Overlord 2. You may be a big evil badass with glowing eyes and an axe the size of a compact car, but it's your swarm of diminutive minions that take center stage, and ultimately seem to be the ones actually running the show. After all, there's probably a reason the little beasties go through Overlords like most people go through socks. Finding out just why that is, and what really happened to all your predecessors (of which there have been at least three, at last count, and probably more), is just a part of the game's hook...The real appeal, however, is in having a whole gang of mischievous little psychos to order around. When I first saw Gremlins as a kid, it was probably my deepest wish to become one of those gleefully destructive, unaccountable monsters. Upon reaching adulthood, however, I decided that I'd much rather just own a bunch of them to unleash at will. Commanding a legion of hilariously evil little critters to plunder and wreck everything in reach is the game's most basic appeal, and something that never really seems to get old. There's just something endlessly entertaining about watching a bunch of peasants fleeing before a horde of goblins as they ransack a bar, guzzle a few gallons of booze, and subsequently pee all over everything in sight. Everyone has an id that doesn't get let out often enough, and Overlord 2's minions are a pretty handy proxy...If that dark place in everyone's heart lies a little bit closer to the surface of yours, this is far and away the best place to let it out. I mean, unless you already have a tower, harem, and army of hilarious little bastards to do your bidding. In which case, do you need a roommate?

Features
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 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.
For YOU, Master! Your Own Personal Minion Horde: It's the Minion horde versus the armies of the Glorious Empire army. Organized 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 organized 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.
Playing for Laughs: 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.
