Overlord. The new Xbox 360 exclusive, Is it good to be bad? or to bad to be any good?
but still i think it desrved at the very least a 7.5. I played the Demo on live and i could tell it was not my cup of tea. I liked Pikimin because you actually cared for the little flowers and didn't want to see any harm come to them. I can care less for the Minions. That being said, the graphics are nice and its a pretty funny game.
You "cared for the little flowers"?
It was just sad to see them get gobbled. Afterall they did follow your every command.
PS I wasnt bashing, It just struck my funny bone to hear someone say they cared for flowers. Only in the gaming world can this happen.
i cared bout the minions, the way they ran around with pumpkins on there heads and brought you things not thinking of keeping them for themselves. plus they were strangely cute looking lol
and i choose the minions on The Darkness. Now its funny that you can find clothes around the city and your Minions will actually wear them depending if they are in the mood while the kill the enemies (In the Darkness)
Not sure if I want to get this but I agree with original seed. The Darkness this friday gets my money will get Overlord at some other stage.
I dont expect this to be an AAA title just a good title that is fun to play. I expect it will be and will buy it. Reviews so far have been around 6-8. I guess this maybe one of those you like it if you "get it" type games due to the humor in it. The review in question for this article was pretty useless as it didnt do much but complain that this is a pikiman ripoff. To which I say, so what? I mean if pikiman was a good game its good to have someone emulate it. How many FPS, TPS, RTS, RPG do we have. Now we have two of these games. One is cutsy with flowers. One is cutsy with minions. I prefer minions myself, but thats me.
Haven't played it myself but I think for a game thats supposed to be really EVIL, toning the violence and other adult content for a watered down T for Teen was the biggest mistake. Overlord could have been a really sweet and crazy M rated game but they went for T...
yep, this game is pretty much bad. i think it deserves lower score than 6.7 . probably 4.5. the demo was horrible: invisible walls, horrible camera control. etc.... this game is good for someone that had never play videogames.
I'm picking mine up today.
Just because some don't like doesn't mean everyone won't. I played the demo loved it going to get it today. As for the darkness I got it yesterday and so far it feels a little subpar. For a shooter these days the aiming is just bad and the maps suck I really mean they suck. The in game menus are not that good either.Hope it gets better as I play it.
Rental to test it out first me thinks ...
FYI, For those folks that don't have XBox Live and want to get the Dashboard Updates, Overlord has them on the disk and will install them before it even loads the game.
