this game was realy fun. i liked the open-world, the various boss fights and the story wasn't mutch untill... you meet little red riding hood and the tooth fairy, and then the hansle and gredle witch. i realy enjoyed the story because it took me back to when i was little, and the overlord just killing and breaking everything made it just that more fun.
the fact that you have minions to do your bidding is asome and there are different minions for different tasks giving the game a puzzle type feel to it, dont worry they arent that hard, not even puzzles at all, just this minion can walk here and this can do that, basic strength and weaknesses. you get to power-up your guys and yourself with money that you collect and money is EVERYWHERE so something that causts $7,000 dollers it isnt that hard to get, you will have that amount about 3/4 the way through the mission so it makes it easy. another ASOME feature is the teleporter, so when they say go to this place and its all the way on the other side of the map it takes 2 secs instead of the usuall 10-20 mins. this game was a mix of all the things i like in a game, a game that isnt too chalenging, simple to complete, money and weapons are easy to obtain, just all around good fun, and the fact that you can order others to do what you want makes it that more fun because you can take the sacrifice.
i havent played the other OVERLORD's but i have them on my list so i HIGHLY recomend this game to ENYBODY!!! (wouldn't buy it though, no replay value whats-so-ever good rent though)
