Honest Gamers writes: "Overlord: Raising Hell had a lot going for it, but it also had some weak points that detracted from the overall enjoyability. Rather than trying to correct those issues, Overlord II ignores most of them and in some cases actually magnifies the bad stuff to the point where the experience has now become a bit of a chore. Worse, much of the personality and humor that added so much to the first game is either absent, repeated verbatim or replaced by a poor man's substitute. You can still have fun. The concept remains solid and enough bright spots are sprinkled throughout this unfortunate sequel to prevent it from killing the franchise's potential. It just came closer to doing so than many gamers will be prepared to accept. You're better off with the first one".
