Eurogamer Review: Overlord

It's easy to forgive. Overlord may remind the more experienced gamer of a mass of things, but it's only so identifiable as they're conventions which relatively few games have used successfully. And when a few quick clicks send a spindly-limbed wave heading over to cause havoc, it's its own thing. Follow the link for the full review.

I really want to play this game but something really weird keeps happening when I try and download the demo. I tried directly downloading from a game site and it stopped at 99.7% saying there was a CRC error, then I tried downloading form Gamespot and got the same Error. Then I tried to get it form my Newsgroups and it froze when trying to repair the files (with the PAR2 files). So I just gave up :(. Anyone know why this would happen?

Oh yeah I was trying to get the PC version on XP.

They gave it a decent score. This looks like a good game. They didn't talk much about developing your own throne. I hope it's deep.

The Dutch have come a long way since Davilex (Dutch people just laugh now). it looks good and a 8, looks like solid!

I still believe that the T rating hurt Overlord the most. I mean its a game about being Evil and yet it gets a T. Something is wrong. Hope they release a M rated sequel.

Its not a game about being evil. Its a game about being EEEEEeeevvvviiiiillllll.

Kinda like Dr Evil in Austin Powers. It should be rated T. If you want evil, play The Darkness or Manhunt, apparently thats really evil.

I really enoyed the demo, the british humour is spot on, and its really funny bossing yout little minions around! I like the fact its a Teen rating and they haven't gone for the overly gorey route other games do, there is no need for an M rating in this game, and it means if my kids walk in I dont have to switch it off suddenly (like i Di with GoW all the time!).
I am tempted to buy this but Alan wake is just around the corner...
