Review: Overlord: Minions photo
Review: Overlord: Minions
by Jim Sterling

Codemasters definitely pushed the boat out with its Overlord franchise this summer. Following the surprising success of the original game, this year saw three games in the series release simultaneously: Overlord II on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, Overlord: Dark Legend on the Wii and Overlord: Minions on the DS. The latter game was the least talked about and was certainly the most curious, so I was naturally very eager to play it.

Play it is what I have most assuredly done, and we now present to you our full verdict. Does taking direct control of the Overlord's grinning slaves feel as fun as it sounds, or does Minions fall into the same traps as its bigger brothers, having some great ideas that are bogged down by poorly implemented controls and design decisions?

These questions we shall answer, as we review Overlord: Minions.

Review: Overlord II photo
Review: Overlord II
by Jim Sterling

Overlord was one of my favorite games of 2007. Its unique gameplay, evil-minded focus and silly sense of humor outshone the technical issues and awkward controls to create a fun and memorable title that proudly sits among my top titles of this generation.

Overlord II attempts to pull the same stunt, shining through with some ambitious new ideas and a chance to be far more tyrannical. However, the game's problems seem to have increased since the last game, with new ideas bringing new issues. 

Can this sequel repeat the creative success of the first game and remain brilliant in spite of its flaws, or do the issues drag this follow-up game down into the murky Netherworld? Read on as we review Overlord II

I've been playing Overlord II all weekend and loving it, despite a number of issues. That's why I'm all for some extra content, which Triumph Studios is planning to announce in the near future. When asked about any future DLC...

Club Seals, wear them as hats. That's cool with PETA

You know the folks at PETA get angry over the strangest stuff sometimes. That would be fine if they kept it consistent, but it appears that they're absolutely fine with baby seals being clubbed to death and then having their ...

E3 09: Hands-on with Overlord Dark Legend
by Conrad Zimmerman

While I was out at the Codemasters booth playing Overlord 2, I figured I had absolutely no good reason not to check out its cousin for Wii, Overlord Dark Legend. I'd had so much fun with the first one that I was in really good spirits about the series as I picked up the Wii remote and began to play. That changed somewhat, sadly.

Hit the jump and I'll explain why I'm so keen on one and a little concerned about the other.

E3 09: Hands-on with Overlord 2

I love me some Overlord. I might not love it as much as Jim does but I think it would be a close race as to who has a bigger tent for the upcoming sequel. Now that I've had an opportunity to play it on the show floor at E3, I'm even more excited than ever.Hit the jump and check out why it feels so good to be so bad.
