Overlord: Raising Hell is defined by moments like that and the result is a triple mixture of real-time strategy, action and puzzle games that feels surprisingly balanced. When you add in the warped sense of humor, it becomes much simpler to overlook those confusing first few hours and some of the repetition that is inherent in the overall design.
Players who passed on the original version get added value, since several new dungeons and multi-player arenas add value to what was already a fair-sized package (though they mostly just apply assets that were already in place). Whether you're new to the series or returning for another go around, there's a lot to like. Gamers may never get the chance to punch Frodo in the mouth, but subjugating his people and razing their village will do in a pinch!
