    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 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.

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.

    One or two little problems with the camera / controls, but this is due having the minions to control aswel. Overall it's a great game that can stand up there with the RPG greats of the world.

  1. Ground-breaking visuals (for real) and tons of new gameplay; bigger worlds, more characters, more management, more tactics and more mistresses! Plus a truly inspired original score and no crap online modes!
  2. Despite its problems it does generally provide a fun experience and fans of the first game will love the new ways of spreading chaos.
  3. Overlord II is a solid improvement on the original and great fun for newcomers and existing fans. The core gameplay hasn't changed too much, but small tweaks here and there and the introduction of mounts helps keep things fresh.
