I've only ever heard one other major complaint from the general populace, and that was the hands-off approach. The Overlord will sit back and let the minions do all the work.

This game has been picked up again, and thoroughly enjoyed despite the serious map issue. At the greatly reduced price of this game, it is definitely a good experience – just know what you're in for. It really is a shame such a game was left feeling somewhat unfinished, but then, what isn't anymore?
Now, imagine me, only commanding all the dogs of the world to do my bidding.
