    As an exercise in flexing evil, it's far more tiresome than it is enjoyable and as an advert for the freedom of evil, it may as well be Hitler's screaming head in a vacuum-sealed bell jar. [Aug 2009, p.126]

    Overlord 2 is a pretty fun game, and is one of the better games I've played when it comes to being satisfied with the gameplay. Camera isOverlord 2 is a pretty fun game, and is one of the better games I've played when it comes to being satisfied with the gameplay. Camera is flawed as it is the same as moving your minions around. Sometimes the camera angle can end up getting all screwed up and you'll find yourself having a bit of trouble running around. It can get a bit annoying if it happens in a narrow area. The visuals of the areas and towns look pretty, vivid and decent but the character models are most definitely bad and out dated. The controls aren't awful, but it is kind of annoying as rotating the camera and moving your minions are both the right analog stick, as stated previously. The story isn't very serious but it has a certain appeal to it that keeps the experience fun, making good and bad choices for different outcomes is always a great way to get more replay value out of your game as well.
