if they make the controls a bit more streamlined then im game. the first got way too annoying controlling all the different classes of imp.

Visually and artistically, it looks very nice. My cup of tea. Never played the first, so I don't know anything about the game. Was it any good?

it was good, but was a bit of a one trick pony which caused the game to get a bit repetative later on.

but it was the imp management that was a pain in the ass. the amount of times i threw the wrong type of imp at an enemy was insane. and it got even worse when bosses or puzzles required specific patterns of imp to be thrown in quick succession.

Overlord is still one of my top 15 games on the xbox 360. I still need to get around to buying the exp for it.
This game can not come soon enough!

About the game

    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: I just don't think they've done anything that's pushed the envelope or been particularly bold, other than focus on details. (1 minute ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: It was a very different ND back then too which is why the company name seems weird today (3 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Then again, its a difference of months rather than years between those and PSX (4 minutes ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 I don't remember very well but i think my biggest problem with Crash gameplay was the depth perception was weird (6 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: I wouldn't go as far as saying it was one of the earliest ones. When I think early 3d, I think 3D0, 32X and Jaguar. (6 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @GriftGFX: That's the crux of it. Tomb Raider is a good example of that. Then again, it lent a bit to its charm at the same time with how difficult and tense it made traversing things. (8 minutes ago)

    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: Wasn't Crash one of the first 3d games? (9 minutes ago)
