Awkward camera and controls

First off, I want to say that I loved the original. It's one of the few games my wife will watch me play cuz the minions are "so cute". So I am a huge fan of the original but this sequel has some serious camera angle and control design problems. Very specifically, w/o spoiling, there is a time when you need to control a spider along a wall. I spent hours to no avail. Several forums are full of other gamers w/ the same problem. I wanted to keep going but couldn't. This is the first game that I got stuck on and gave up on. Very frustrating.

I enjoyed the original Overlord, and was enjoying this one as well until I hit a game stopping bug. I had defeated the Salamander King and stopped playing without saving. Figured I could just go back and defeat him again, wrong. The next time I went to play the area loaded in the first section where the Salamander King breaks some barriers for you. Unfortunately there was no Salamander King and no way to get past the barriers...I was stuck in one section with no way to get by.

The same technical problems that were in the first make this a bit of a bear to play in some levels. Still it's humor alone is worth the price of admission!
