Ok Peons listen up!!

I am here to talk about how awesome your new ruler is! Yes that’s right ThisGuy is no more… there is no this guy only zuuul…er Overlord! (gatta stop saying that)

Being an overlord is kinda tough at times… my camera (right analog stick controls camera and minion movement) Granted there is 2 different camera modes but at times when I wanna switch the camera or pan around my minions will move… This can be overlooked wanna know why? IM THE OVERLORD!!!

As in my first incarnation all aspiring overlords (that will fail to be as great as ME!) will have 4 different minions to choose from that’s right kiddies the browns, reds , greens, and blues are back with all of their devoted minionedness (SILENCE Whelps Overlords can make up werds!) These ugly little goblins will act on my every command….(cept putting my fuzzy overlord bunny slippers on at night, jerks!) *COUGH* riiiight heh got ya! …just making sure your reading… bunny slippers…pff.

My world has had a huge overhaul in the graphical department (this is a reason I needed to get rid of Thisguy… to much drool) The ice is shiny and the forests are beautiful. In my second coming I have thought my minions to ride mounts. I will not give it all away but Browns get wolves and greens get spiders, this is a welcome addition to the already overpowering horde that is my force! I have also learned a lovely past time (that most overlords love) sailing, which also doubles as a split screen competitive mode.  

I have attempted to find other overlords online to clash with but failed. (granted I only tried 2 separate times) Again there are many upgrades to the lair which you can obtain after robbing the feeble humans of their gold. As in my first lair you need to find a wife (or 2) to keep the place cosy and clean. My second lair is massive in comparison to that weak decrepit place I once called home, with massive chambers and offshoots for all of your overlord needs .  I have even added a crypt to revive those fallen in battle.  (handy, as like I always say “ if they love you enough to die for you… why not bring em back so they can die for you again!)

Life as an overlord is good now I have spells that I can power up my minions, zap weak opponents or subdue them to be my meat shields. At times when I can’t trust the foolish minions to do the job right so I have to possess them and lead the pack of drooling idiots. The enemies in this new world range from Eskimo type hunters to flamboyant tree hugging Elves. Once you are snug in your roll as overlord you will learn the joys of such things such as seal bashing, tree burning and elf re-location.

Each minion type has its own strengths and faults (all are dumb).  Each overlord is able to plant their respected minions in one spot and they will act accordingly. Greens for example will stealth themselves and wait until an enemy comes lurking by and jump on their backs for quick dispatch.  Blues are healers and are able to revive downed minions. Reds are ranged fighters and tried and trusted browns are you main melee fighters. Mix and match for each situation

I have to tell you the overlord life is fun and has much to offer those who would choose to be good or evil those subjects will cheer you if your loved or run and cower from you when and I SAY WHEN you are evil. 

WOA! Ok so like I totally just read what I wrote and yea this game is a ton of fun the only downs are the area map seems to be a bit close and the right analog stick controlling the minions as well as the camera. The multiplayer is lacking as I have said that I was unable to locate a game but again only attempted 2 times.  Ok so I am not gonna lie to you this game might give you a bit of a complex ALL HAIL YOUR OVERLORD!!

Disclaimer… do not attempt to use overlord tactics or magic  on your girlfriend, wife or partner … you will get hurt. .. bad… errmmm not that I know 1st hand *sniff*… *wipes tears* … I have to go.Cry
