Overlord 2: Quick Review

Overlord 2 is a cute sequel from Overlord 1. If you played the original you will like this one as well. I rated this one a 6 only because of two factors that annoyed me the entire time I played the game.
1 - Movement of the Overlord was frequently distrupted by the minions because I would accidently press UP on the stick, which activates the minions. The right stick activates minions and also moves the camera. Therefore in the heat of battle when you're trying to see which direction the enemy is coming from and look too quickly, your minions will take off if you do not have them planted.
2 - Walking, walking, and more walking. I enjoy a big map, but this guy can't run. Can't count the number of times I feel asleep going from one place to another.
Overall I would recommend this to those who played the original. Would I crank this one up and play it again? Even though I accidently killed the fairy queen, I can't see me playing this one over again to spare her life.

Horrible

Not a true co-op game

My wife and I enjoy co-op games -- from FPS to RPG -- and although this is billed as multi-player and co-op it is not.

You are given two versus split screen options and two cooperative arena style options -- but you are NOT given a story line co-op game.

None. Nada. Zero.

So if you're looking for a story-line game you can play through from beginning to end, as we were, keep on looking.

Good Kids Game

It was more directed towards younger kids.

Kinda fun for a few minutes, but it got a little too silly and way too many fruity characters.
