PostSubject: Overlord   Wed Mar 12, 2008 12:07 pm

Metachronos overall score = 8.6 / 10

Positive
- Good-looking high-fantasy setting
- Watching minions wreak havoc is fun
- Uniquely blends RPG and RTS conventions

Negative
- Occasional objectives that require more speed and precision than the controls can muster
- Could stand to be a little more evil

As the titular overlord, you begin the game having just been resurrected by your minions, and your dark kingdom is in shambles. Your dark tower is a ruinous mess, you've got but a handful of subservient followers, and the local villagers are cowering in fear of forces other than yourself. This simply will not do. Powerful practitioner of might and magic that you are, you could go the hands-on route in rebuilding your tower and crushing the wills of the peasants; but then, what's the point of being the overlord if you've got to do everything yourself?



Overlord is an enjoyably mischievous experience that blends real-time strategy and RPG elements to unique ends. The satisfaction of running amok with your legion of wickedly enthusiastic minions is what makes Overlord worth playing, and it's plenty compensation for controls that you'll occasionally struggle against and the limitations on just how evil you can really be.
