    Dark Legend had all the right elements to be a great game, but it just didn't click.

    It's a shame. A dirty shame. I really loved the first Overlord. I was super excited for this game being announced for the Wii. Wii controls just seem like a perfect fit, and the graphical style wo...

    Overlord is a dull, repetitive game that could have been great.

    The fun of trashing things and sending our your crazy minions gets dull quickly as the levels/areas are too much alike. There are no real puzzles or situations where you need to think which minions to...

    While juggling minions, quick depleting health bars and specific obstacles, Overlord: Dark Legend is a decent challenge.

    Has being evil ever been this fun? Unrealistically, there is no punishment for misdeeds which feels great considering theres no need for a rush. Gameplay: Using the Wii Remote as the pointer, you g...

    Overlord Dark Legend is a solid, funny, game that held back by a few minor flaws.

    Overlord Dark Legend, the Wii's current only installment of the Overlord franchise. Surely its just a watered down port of the 360 original yes? No. Overlord is a unique and solid experience on the wi...
