Well if it plays like Kameo I'll pass. There are very few games which nail the gameplay in this genre.

Looks very much like the first Fable for a 'next gen' game. Unless its a budget price game its not gonna sell many copies.

I like the premise of the game but the first gameplay videos shown on gametrailers.com looked kind of weak. THe game seemed clunky and hard to use, didn't seem very intuitive as to what you're supposed to do. All sorts of strange countdown bubbles, etc.

I hope they can pull it off, I really like the idea and humor behind the game and their comments about the AI sound great but so far the videos shown haven't been very impressive.

This is not a platformer. It is an action strategy RPG with a dose of British dark humor.

Agreed. But there is an interview at IGN where they talk about the minion control

"Kevin Mullard: Overlord is an action RPG game with one big difference - the Minions. You can control them in two main ways; by 'sending' them, which is rather like firing an intelligent and rampaging bullet; or by 'sweeping', in which players use the right analogue stick to move the Minion horde over the landscape, killing, stealing and breaking everything in their path. They flock as they go too, meaning they flow around trees, over bridges and into innocent people's houses."

I hope it turns out good. The box is really needing some more variety in it's games.

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Something for the sequel at least. Being able to ride one of them, and command a small team of machines with actual command functions when overridden. (7 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @Tiz: Don't know about mounting one of those, although you should have. Worse is when you override. They do fuck all because they turn into dosile dumbfucks that have to have things lured to them (8 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Oh, and hipster 'dudebro' topknot wearing scientists that invented the main threat. As fucking if! (13 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite *i should say 'became' redundant. That's the thing: the game was promising at the start until it just became a case of repetitive chore. (15 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite save for the fire arrow, merchants were useless, characters boring as fuck, and main quest chucking all the info at you at once near the end. (17 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I played the game on hard. All of the game's initial good points because redundant after a certain point in the game. I never once found the need for any of the elemental armour or weapons (18 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Thunderjaws giving you jip? No sweat, pal. Just shoot the bastards disc cannon off with a single shock arrow and use it against him. Easy as pie. (20 minutes ago)
