Look at the Overlord Cover

If you look at the cover, it can be confusing, you gotta focus if you wanna know if the latest installment of Overlord is the second version.. Yeah, I hear yah, if you know Overlord the original, you know the diff.  I"m speaking too the people not familiar with the franchise.  The original Overlord will have an Orange kinda appeal on the cover,, Overlord II will be darker, and darker blue.  


Is that where the difference between Overlord and Overlord II ends?


Not exactly.  I've put maybe an hour into Overlord II and I gotta say, coming from someone that's played a lot of sequals, Overlord II will not dissapoint.  You will be pleasantly surprised at the differences, not only in minion control, but one glaring diference and one I've been waiting for,, you'll have an F'n map to track your progress.  While Overlord the original may feel like somewhat of a programming incompletion,, and a classic and complete game it is,, Overlord II adds just that extra to make you justify spending hours playing it.  It's a trust issue, and for all those that followed the original Overlord on faith only and invested their time in completing it, I can tell you, perhaps the trust issue has been resolved.  I'll post more as I get a little deeper in Overlord II, but for now, so far so good. 

Overlord and Medevil?

Ok, I've blogged a bit on Medevil, a Playstation classic.  So what do these two title have in common.  Well, basically they are two games on major consoles that are outstanding, but haven't recieved the attention they deserve.  Until now, there's Overlord 2 set for release.  Now, if they only can pull their heads out and come up with a Medevil release for xbox 360 we'd be good right.  

Let's take a look at the Overlord the original ( I bet some of the peeps that worked on Medevil had a hand in this game, don't know for sure, but one can guess).

The setting is colorfull cinematic, kind of like a boat load of games from the old Playstation days, but well done.  You're the Overlord, and you have minions that you command, heck, you can even throw a few of them to their demise just to gain some of your health back and they'll happily jump to their deaths for you.  If you don't wanna swing your axe because your feeling a littly lazy or just maybe you like sending the minions to do your dirty work, have at it.  I can't really recall a game like it that's so well executed.  The Rainbow Six series comes to mind, but totally different genre.  

Henceforth Overlord 2

If you haven't played Overlord, go rent it, or scoop it up at Gamestop if you can find a copy.  It'll run you about $17, but well worth it.  Spin this classic for a few hours and you'll be primed for the new realease.  I haven't played Overlord 2 yet, but after playing the original, I can confidently say it's getting purchased and going into the coveted keepers pile. 


I'll update when I give Overlord 2 a spin, may download the demo soon and keep you posted. 


Until next time, keep your paws dry whilst your minions are ransacking villages, use GhostGrip.
