In a world ravaged by evil, you are an overlord. As the king of the darkest, creepiest creatures in the land, you command their strength like the mother of all minions. Their power, as luck would have it, is that of fire, water, stealth and brutality. These evil buggers are ready and willing to fulfill your every destructive desire.
Players are used to video games with graphic themes, even those with a comedic twist such as those offered here. But it's what Overlord: Raising Hell does inside the game that makes it so much more than the average thrash-everything medieval adventure. And it's all thanks to real-time strategy combat, whose moves, character formation, button layout and gameplay executions are nearly identical to Pikmin, the undervalued GameCube hit.
