Action Trip writes: "Dutch development team Triumph Studios hasn't done much work in the past other than games like Age of Wonders and Overlord. However, both franchises had done well and made a successful tribute to traditional gameplay formulas. Overlord also enlivened the atmosphere with a healthy dose of humor. Although very entertaining on the whole, the game itself had a number of downers, which we hoped would be straightened out in the sequel. In addition, Overlord II had been promoted as an overall improvement over its predecessor, both in terms of graphics and gameplay."
