Overlord Seems like one to avoid at any rate. "I do agree with the its not fun to be a dick if your encouraged to do that" theory

I guess moral choice isn't for Yahtzee

EDIT: pretty sure everyone except the guy above me is gonna get a whomping from the mods :p

This one was funny, indeed. I always wondered if it was worth getting or not. Now I know... I think.

The Pope would be Neutral Evil, as the laws of man hold no sway over him (though he doesn't necessarily work against them.)

Sorry dude.


Oh, and the minion sweep is a thumbstick control on a console, where it belongs.

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 recommended this for my brother. He loves the Overlord games, mainly for the impy minions. (Great use of them today btw!) I simply want nothing to do with this game.

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.

Epic out-geek!

On topic, it was an interesting review, especially considering I was reading the "trustworthy reviewers" topic earlier. Good job, keep up the nice work.

He could've at least commented on the humour of the game a little bit. I didn't really laugh my ass off while playing but it's still a huge part of it.
Other than: Dito.

Real Time Stupid!

It's pretty sad when any game resembles a game by Peter Molyneux...
