    I went in excited, and I liked the novelty at first. As the game went on my score dropped and at end I just sighed.

    Overlord 2 can be a fun game or a game which you consider to be a waste of money and time.

    More of the Same (which is a good thing if you enjoyed Overlord)

    Rated on July 01, 2009 by SPiccoli

    To qualify, I enjoyed the first game immensely. I did not enjoy spending exessive time in the arena, collecting life force to upgrade armor. Graphics - Excellent quality. The views from your doma...
