    One of the best games yet.

    Overlord is one of those things that flys under everyones radar and will become one of two things.. either a cult classic, or widely popular and praised. Unfortunately, I see it being a cult classic due to lack of advert... Read Full Review

    Play It!Enjoy It!

    Overlord is about being Evil. I'm giving 'Evil' its capital, because it's not really about being evil. This isn't about being evil like in dealing crack to kids, or death camps or telling your girlfriend you're working l... Read Full Review

    Fresh new gameplay delivers tons of fun and incredible mayhem.

    Overlord is one of those games that you grab really not knowing what to expect. Amazingly enough I picked it up expecting a mediocre game but rather I ended up with a quite amazing experience. I love this game first of... Read Full Review

    Great game, but nothing is perfect ...

    Great game, cool characters, may be the value isn't that good, but it can keep u playing it without being bored... the most annoying thing in this game (which is set right in part II) is the lack of a map !! so you can ... Read Full Review

    Charming and Delightful! Never since the original Black and White has a game been this fun!

    I see that some give this game a low score and i cannot fathom why. The game is simply great. You (The Evil Overlord) are given a bunch of small gremlin-like creatures and you are charged with the task of wreaking havoc ... Read Full Review

    Very Fun! Very Addictive! I haven't enjoyed a game this much in a long time!

    A fantastic, catchy adventure with hilarious voice acting.

    Trying to classify this game in a single genre could prove difficult, as it feels like many different elements have been thrown into a melting pot. This game feels like a Black and White, but it is far more addictive, an... Read Full Review
