About

The hero of the game is Overlord, a great warrior, resurrected by predatory creatures - minions, to defeat the seven rulers of the seven provinces and capture their lands with all that is there. Overlord had a predecessor, who owned all the lands, but their present rulers defeated and killed him. And they fell into seven deadly sins, one for each. The hero uses the old destroyed tower as a base. He brings there all the trophies and gradually transforms it into a comfortable, spacious and in every respect well-equipped room. Among the trophies are artefacts stolen from the tower, which add even new places to the tower, increase the health and magical power of Overlord. Minions are of four kinds, each species has its own abilities. Minions perish in battle, but Overlord can summon new ones from special wells, paying for it with the life force of dead enemies. You can build a smithy and then buy and improve weapons there. Overlord can behave differently, he is tempted by the same sins that enslaved his opponents. Its "corruption" exists in the game as one of its parameters, measured, displayed and affects the course and end of the game.

Overlord reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
It's good to be bad Overlord puts us in the shoes of a evil Lord who takes back the reindeer of his Kingdom after being defeated by great heroes. Armed with your sword, your gauntlet of Overlord and an army of minions ready to serve you, you have the task of reclaiming your Kingdom, giving back to your turn its appearance of yesteryear and killing the famous heroes who put you in the cemetery. But behind this quest to the absolute evil, a threatening shadow remains on your shoulders. My army Vice the main asset of the game is its gameplay, revolving around the army management, a bit like Pikmin. You have the possibility to take minions of each kind that you unlock as and when the game, each with its peculiarity: the Browns type loudly, the reds throw embers remotely, the Greens can become invisible and perform discrete attacks and the blue can swim in the water and ressucted the corpse of a dead servant. Limited to a few minions at the beginning of the game, you will unlock objects to increase its size, for your enjoyment. The minions equip themselves with what they find, sometimes on enemies, sometimes in barrels, increasing their strength or resistance. But this is not always enough, because the strategy prevails in this game, forcing you to pay attention to where your minions are and how they will react when approaching an enemy. A sometimes daunting challenge on sometimes rough maneuverability, which can quickly become frustrating. But it remains that once this side of the game mastered, the pleasure is well present. Through fire and flames your character itself is not useless. Indeed, in addition to its weapons and armor increasing its capacity (life, Mana, regeneration or size of armies, and I pass), you have spell that you unlock little by little, with each of the abilities that will make the difference during the battles. You can also, as the game progresses, unlock new weapons and armor in which to sacrifice your weakest minions to get a nice stat increase. In the darkest hours the story itself is cliched, but does not suffer any real problem, all set in a wacky fantasy world as one would expect from a game of this genre. Your character follows the course of history while seeming to be involved in it through alignment decisions: will you opt for a magnianimated dictator, or for an implacable tyrant? You will have the opportunity to perform actions that will determine your alignment (decimate the population, forgive the betrayal of your followers, commit genocide, etc.) and will change the appearance of your turn, making it immaculate or bathed in corruption. And if the story in itself is not particularly fascinating, the end twist has pleased me, offering a sequence of friendly combat, admittedly difficult, but curiously satisfactory. In summary: Note: 8.5/10 the most: Overlord to a good gameplay, a very pleasant story with characters high in color and above all, a system of evolution fluid and allowing a good grip. The less: one will regret a lack of precision in the system of control of the armies, which offer large frustration, and the AI of the minions who sometimes die in a stupid way.
