This game is an absolute classic and even though online multiplayer is dead, local co-op still works via Split Screen with a variety of modes, so if you want to plug a couple of controllers in and sit on the couch this is a great game for it.
The jist of the game is that you're a dark child of destiny who can use magic and control imps, so you set out to get revenge on a town that cast you out, club baby seals to harvest their life force, rain firey death on innocent fairies, and build your netherworld dark tower. As you explore and get new minions and powers you can unlock things you previously couldn't access. Also if you decide you have a favorite minion, with enough life force you can bring them back.
The game has an alignment system split between domination and destruction, so if you go around killing everyone and everything you meet you get destruction points and your armor changes and you become more destructive in combat. If you enslave everyone you meet, you get domination powers and your armor changes and you get better at enslaving and dominating things. You can also choose to walk the middle path and keep your default overlord armor and abilities, it's not a bad thing if you do.
