    I forgot to add that the GFx and AI is improved in Overlord 2. The demo is out on both PS3 and X360 but remember that the demo does not justify all the fun you can have in full game. ;-)

    I played the original and loved it and now i bought this and love it even more. The humor and fun is so addictive through the game. GFx is even better and gameplay is keept from the first one. If that is bad or good is a matter of taste, i like it. The camera can be anoying in some cases but does not ruin gameplay in overall. I mostly use the overhead camera wich i think works best.

    The review was on spot thx for that. If they only could have longer video reviews on g4tv because i allways feels that they are to short? Gametrailers spend at least 8 to 14mins on their videoreviews. Only a suggestion anyway.

    This game was surprisingly more fun than I thought it would be. My friend bought and I was a bit skeptical but it was pretty cool, a solid 4 out of 5.

    If you played the first overlord and liked it this is defiantly a must have for you. The game plays almost exactly like the old one. People who have played the original will notice a couple awesome minor improvements made to the game, that were not mentioned in the review. For instance like being able to resurrect your more powerful rare minions if something unfortunate happened to them in battle. The ai still has its dimwitted moments but when put in guard mode the ai seems smarter than in the previous, moving browns to the outside and blues and reds on the inside of the formation. X-plays review is exactly what this game deserves.
    A comment to halokiller the original game got a 4 out of 5 from x-play.
    Adam Sessler didn't do the written review of this game correct it was Russ Fischer? At least thats how i always assumed it was done, because there is no way adam and morgan play and review all of these games.

    It looks like this game is pretty close to the original. I loved the first game and can't wait to play this, although I do wish they would've improved the camera/AI. It still looks a lot of fun though.

    i never played the first one but i got the demo and i thought the demo was really good. adam is defs right about the camera. but overall i thought it was really fun. it didnt take its self to seriously which is good to see because so many games these days are oh no if you fail its the end of the world etc.

    The demo doesn't show even an inkling of what the game has to offer. If you have never played the first one then you don't know what to expect, and honestly; that is a sad thing indeed. I would suggest that you consider the fact that the demo only allowed for 20 browns to be used and barely gave you a touch of the mounts; where as, the full game adds larger (and more varied) set pieces, three more minion types, two more mount types, pace changing minigames, a full story, complete customization over both your character, minions, and citadel; and on top of all that it provides it all in a well delivered humurous manner. So a 4 out of 5 is more then deserved my friend.

    the first one was great, a cult classic. the demo for this one proved to me that it was going to be just as great, improving a lot of the kinks of the first. I can't wait to play it. gosh I wish I had money!
