OXCGN's Overlord II Review - Overlooked or Overrated?

OXCGN Writes: "For anyone who read the 'Ten 360 Games You Haven't Played' feature, you'd know I'm a fan of the first Overlord. There were three magic ingredients that made it so appealing – playing the bad guy, controlling a mass of minions and a streak of satirical black humour that gave it the feeling of being a guilty pleasure.

Despite good reviews, it failed to make an impact in sales as many saw the cover and screenshots that mistakenly gave it the appearance of an Oblivion rip-off (which you must remember was the 'it' game at the time). Luckily for us Codemasters had faith in the franchise and gave Triumph the go ahead for a sequel, and over 2 years later it's finally arrived...."

The story is too old to be commented.

If more shops in my area would actually have Overlord 1 in stock, I would buy it, and see what I missed out on... but until then I'll have to guess Overlord 2 a miss.

I've always wanted minions of my own! Great review.

Controlling minions is awesome, much more fun than getting your own hands dirty!
