Cool. Very excited about this one.
Complaints I see:
It wasn't Oblivion: No shit. The best description that has been repeated that I started long ago is "an updated Diablo".
Can't hit anything on mounts: I can. Wasn't that hard to master. On console? F this game on Console. First time ever the frame rate made me sick. PC? Looks great, runs great. Only mount complaint I have is you don't know when the SOB is going to die...so again, save often.
I use them for travels, but mostly for storage points, so I gathered all the mounts up and put them in 1 location by a large castle with the best merchants and a warp point.
To open: I love how open it is. Couldn't be played any other way. If it wasn't 100% open, people would bitch that it isn't open enough.
Any complaint from anyone who played it on console, is probably valid.
Game has a great save system, save whenever you do something bc you don't know how powerful that enemy is....easy to walk into a CF and die instantly.
FYI the game is 2.90 from Gogamer right now, and you can get Overlord 1 for 7.90. Also Overlord 2 is on sale.
Obviously the game did well enough for a sequel. I look forward to more of a co-op storyline. Multi player was really only a vs situation.
Most of the complaints people have on the game (sans console) can easily be fixed with the numerous mods out there. For $2.90 (I paid $6.12 or something on clearance) you can't go wrong for a fun hack and slash with PG elements and spells.This comment was edited on Jul 4, 2009, 00:46.
