The Overlord II Website
now offers a new trailer from the upcoming good-to-be-bad strategy sequel,
showing off the return of the little minions that populate the game. Codemasters
also narrows the previously announced June release window for the
game, announcing Overlord II will be released on June 23 in North
America and on June 26 in Europe.
Yeah, I was a bit confused. I'm supposed to be a some sort of evil Overlord, but instead I'm helping villagers? Um, okay. Still, I had fun, despite the shitty controls. I enjoyed upgrading my castle and making it look nice. Reminded me of HOMM.
I don't know if it was marketed as an RPG in the first place. That would have been quite a stretch. It was kinda fun anyway, but I was hoping for a more wicked game along the lines of Dungeon Keeper, ie. fighting heroes and such instead of just other evil creatures.
There's a lot of talent and attention to detail in the first game. It was pretty fun for a while. Unfortunately it's not a hardcore RPG game by a long shot. It's not even an RPG. Comedy/action is what I'd classify it as.
