Gamers Universe writes: "In 90% of the videogames that we play in this day and age, we're usually asked to purge evil in some manifestation and save the world. Consequently, a game like Overlord comes as quite a relief. The Codemasters developed title might not have been the first to allow us to take the role of a bad guy, but it provided a rare experience that was strangely addictive at the time.
Under your control is the dark and mysterious Overlord, a purely horrific character who has two choices: to become evil or... incredibly evil. His main tool of spreading nastiness into the world comes in the shape of a small army of minions that you eventually control with the right analogue stick, and it's down to you to distribute them as you see fit."
+At last, you are the bad guy
+The minions are an excellent feature
+Strategic use of the minions
+A few minor control and camera issues
-Too many borrowed elements
