the original overlord was great, and yeh clue942, it is similar to pikmin in ways, but pikmin was hardly the first game where you control a horde of little creatures with their own unique abilities, that concept goes all the way back to lemmings, and possibly before. what gives this game character are the minions themselves, they're monstrous, ugly, irritating, funny, abrasive, and generally a laugh riot all around. There's also the concept that in this game, there is no question about it, you ARE the bad guy. What kind of a bad guy you are is up to you. do you kill the damsel in distress outright, or take her back to your place and do dirty things to her till she's screaming for more. do you eat the cake yourself, or share it and poison it for everyone but you. I also liked building up my lair, but I always wished there was more to it...
first was fun, hope they fix some of the things like give it better control but this should be really fun either way rated T for Totally evil
the minions singing in the theme song is a great touch, i wish they would've made a mature version to really explore your sadistic side but this still looks good. i liked the first one,
i hope you can more out of your minnions and main char, like gearing (not just 3 armors and 3 weapons -_-), maybe even some sort of leveling. and it would be awesome if those minions had names and some sort of personality (tho i douth it) so you could get better attact to them and maybe they could also have vocies so they could bash each other and you could just shake your head at garries (or whatever his name should be) sillyness. looks awesome tho! cant wait for it! i loved the first one ^_^ and those wolf/spider riders look badass! lol... that goblin chori (or whatever) at 1:08 was awesome xD and PETA can suck my... ye
HAHA what are those little funny voiced creatures are they called the millions ha they remind me of the film toy solders where they come alive
I've seen some exclusive footage at a firstlook event about this game and also was able to play a demo, it's a really nice random game and lots of fun
HELL YES! the first game was a lot of fun. It was one of those random games I decided to purchase and it was great. Can't wait for this one to come out.
The game looks amazing. Gamespot really underrated the original game. But anyone notice how crappy the cover art looks? Kind of weird.
oldsnake1 doesn't know how to use there their and they're....like most people taught here in the good ol US of A...assuming he/she is from the USA.
yeah im with dino hahaha, this doesn't look very violent though i know gamespow said in the video review it should be more violent, because afterall it's a game all about evil, but eh oh well i guess that surely doesn't ruin it for me
the only thing i wanted to be good in this game is the frame rate its pretty low, even in the trailer
I haven't played the first Overlord but the minions or gremlin things going "DA DA da da da DA DA da da da..." sold me. I must play this and these games.
:lol: oh yah congratz GS for one of your only exclusive trailers, only reason a site like GT hasn't is because there more focused on games that people are actually looking forward to 8).
Bought the first one recently and am playing through it in anticipation of this sequel...looking forward to it.
