Extreme Gamer writes: "Overlord II continues in the realm of dark humour focusing on what was right in the first game. If you have experienced the first one, Overlord II simply took that formula and added some new features. Ultimately I might have liked a few more risks, but more of the same still works. Keeping the gameplay the same is fine if you enjoyed the first game, however if you didn't get sucked in the first time around, Overlord II won't change your mind. In basics Overlord II is an action title with strategy and role-playing elements thrown into the mix."
