theres nothing quite like ordering a horde of minion goblins to pillage a halfling village.

you take control of a minion horde in order to reclaim your place as supreme overlord. the concept is basically you going out and finding things to upgrade your castle. i never played the 360 version, so i dont know what the differences would be. the controls are fairly easy to catch on, only problem is the lack of camera control. the biggest downfall of this game is that there is nothing, outside of a small radar sized map, that lets you know where to go, and since its a fairly open mission type game, its rather hard to find certain people or places. its not that big of a deal since you can jump to any area from your castle. aside from the very few faults, there is definitely alot of fun to be had with this game. may be worth buying, but rent it first, since there are a few aggravating difficulties with controls and camera angles.

From the voice-overs and missions to the spells and realms, this game is loads of fun. There are some frustrating moments with horde control, but once you get the hang of it you can play it for hours and not get bored. Be good or bad, strategize or just ransack the heck outta everything. There are plenty of options for playing how you wanna play, and the graphics are very clean and pretty. Challenging and funny, gross and beautiful, this game really makes it good to be bad!!

Completely loyal minnons that will die for you happily for no good reason to do anything your phsycotic mind disires. Nuff Said. I just can't wait for the next Overlord to come out.

Their is really no story to the game but for this much fun you don't need a storyline. I recommend renting this game, buy if you like (I did).
