I loved the first one, and the sequel sounds to be even better.  I think I'll need to rent a copy and play the expansion pack- somehow that fell beneath my radar.

Glad to hear its coming.  I hope they don’t make it too dark though.  The silliness of the original is one of the reasons I loved it so much.

Codemasters is saying that this is due in June but will probably be delayed until the fall so it can be released with all the other games since that's the only time people buy games.


ok, maybe they didn't say that last part.

But now that Batman: Arkham Asylum has likely been pushed back to the otherwise completely empty Holiday 09 period, you should be free and clear for O2.

What's amazing is that there are only 2 on that list we don't already have.

yeah i know Bull,Star Ocean 4 and Tales came out ages ago in the States....Sacred 2 is out on PC here,but on the 360 it is due a month or so after your 360 version due

i remember there being rumours a while ago about Call of Duty 1 coming to XBLA...no doubt that will drop in June as well icon_evil

the thing i loved about Overlord was directing your minions about,it so reminded me of Gremlins,and made me chuckle everytime i saw them running about...you know that i liked the game because i finished it,LOL

I had trouble in Overlord 1 trying to advance the game.  Sometimes it became unclear where you have to go next and the quest log was no help.  I hope they have improved this part of the game.

I enjoyed the demo. Plays pretty much the same as the first one but seems a little more polished. Hopefully later on in the game they made it easier to control the different minions.

Seems very similar so far, other than the change from killing sheepies for souls to clubbing baby harp seals.  saywhat

Feels very shallow to me.

One had hoped that the makers of one of my favourite PC strategy games could make a game with
some depht for 360.

the first one did seem to be alot of spam your minions towards the enemy and summon new ones as needed with the occasionaly 'need minion type X' to do such and such.  half the fun was watching the way they'd do stuff but it wasn't terribly deep on the tactical level.  the other half was half the story and half being humorously evil.

I enjoyed the first one, but grew tired of it towards the end.  Still didn't finish it.  I might pick it up again just to finish it.  I will pick up Overlord 2

I think what I really want is a Dungeon Keeper type of game. Hopefully the Dungeon Lords game is more like that.

I enjoyed the first one, but got pretty tired of it about halfway through.  I'm sure I'll grab this sometime after the price drops.

Same for me. I really enjoyed the first couple hours, and then all of a sudden I hit a wall and the game stopped being fun. I'll probably get this via Gamefly once I get my subscription up and running again.
