"One of the more pleasant surprises of New York Comic Con '09 was the appearance of a playable build of Overlord: Dark Legend. When I came upon the game, it was sitting unattended, with no one around to demo it, or no controllers to play it with. I had to sneak some controllers out in order to play the game, but since it's in pre-alpha mode, I couldn't even get the thing out of debug mode. I had to cry for help to Dan Robinson, Marketing Manager for the game's developer Codemasters, in order to get the game running.
What I saw is not likely to be fully indicative of what we'll get from the game when it's released later this year. Still, I probably know more about how well Overlord: Dark Legend is coming along than most people on the planet, so I figured it would only be right to tell you what I know. Hit the jump for my full impressions."
