This game sucked :/
While the first Overlord game was brilliant, although a bit buggy and with clunky controls, this one blew. It's been some time since last time I've been so frustrated due to buggy AI, terrible camera positioning issues and general glitches. When I started playing it, it gave me hope in seeing that some AI issues had been solved, but it went downhill from there and halfway through the game I could barely stand it anymore. :/

What?? How can you say that? It's frecking brilliant!
I've got no bugs at all. The controlling is a tad too controller-like, but the rest is fine...

Probably because it's not like WoW.

It's not a bad game, a lot more in depth than the first.

Not to mention its funny as hell.

The first one was great. If this is like it but improved I don't see how it could be a bad game

It wasn't a terrible game. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying it was a great game by any means, the glitches were numerous, everything from popin with chests to laziness on the door handle position (the door handles were on the wrong side). I found myself trapped 2 times due to minions carrying objects blocking me, and having to wade through the 20-30 people you possessed was extremely annoying. I also find the camera makes the stealth section really difficult. All that aside it was a good game, though that might be because I enjoyed pikmin and pikmin 2. Though good is not something you should settle for when buying video games so I can see why you might be disappointed.

Other than the controls feeling very kludgy to me, it wasn't a terrible game for me. Thinking about re-installing it and giving it another go to see if maybe I was just in a ♥♥♥♥ed off mood when I played it and felt the controls were kludgy.

This is weird, because I find Overlord 2 much better when it comes to peformance.

Overlord 1 has framerate around 30 fps, while Overlord 2 most of the time has a steady 60 fps.

Camera controls fine with a 360 controller, if the camera angle is bad its because you are bad at controlling the camera.

It feels like it would probably be better with a controller - using mouse and keyboard is a bit clunky. But I don't have a controller as I like m&k and don't see the point spending the money on it for just a couple of games.

But in general agreement, I really enjoyed this game. It had its issues, and some game design issues I personally take exception to, but overall I still really enjoyed this.

Err, second game was basically a straight improvement of the first game in regards to gameplay.

What is this?

i enjoyed both games
Eucharos May 16, 2013 @ 6:31pm 
Both were good, but I only experience the occasional CTD while alt-tabbing in this, so I wouldn't say 2 is buggier...

Op you are a worthless human being, you judge a game based on bugs? it sucked because it had many bugs? loser...
