Having played this on a top end PC and the 360 all I can say is Wow does the PC version SUCK. This game on the 360 is as smoth as melted butter with graphics better then "high". The sticks are so simple, the camera is good, everything that stinks on the PC version does not exist on the 360. Granted it's a demo...but the 360 has PC beat on this one.

my comp didnt reach the recommended requirements and it was kinda slow and choppy but other than that it was an awesome game! i loved standing there watching my minions slaughter everything and destroy stuff. i like the last boss battle with that huge fat guy. the only BIG problem was that when i moved the mouse the camera always moved too, it was annoying. anyway i really want to get the whole game cant wait!!!

Pretty cool and fun, but seems a little unpolished and rough around the edges. The game still plays well and is fun, pretty sweet script, too, lol.

I had fun with the demo. The camera was annoying and I didn't like how the minions overlapped each other but overall it looks like a good game.

Overlord makes me think the producers and developers of this game were playing World of Warcraft one day, and they all rolled Warlocks and thought "MAN THIS IS COOL, WE SHOULD MAKE AN ENTIRE GAME OF THIS" That's what it is. A copy of the Warlock class, only made to look better. Do I respect the game for that? NO. Will I buy the game when it comes out? YES! It does seem like a cool little game for those days when your bored and want to blow an hour or two on something different.

I've played the Overlord Demo, it's fun, like a mix of Fable and Pikmin. But not sure if it's worth $60.

The Overlord demo is great! I can't wait until this game comes out. It's like Pikmin for adults. :)
