I have never heard of this game before, but this was a pretty good review. I found it to be a lot more informative on the game than your recent reviews, but that is probably because I've never heard of this one.
I feel like games where you get to be a dick are becoming more and more popular now, simply pushed by the fact that you get to be a dick rather than make your own choices.
I actually enjoyed the original Overlord, I always found the fact that it wanted you to be evil quite fun. I suppose the idea did loose it's luster somewhere around the first few levels though. I think I'll give Overlord2 a miss.
