The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

What do these ratings mean?

The Good: Funny dialog, great voice work, using Minions is interesting and fun, nice graphical style

The Bad: Little player involvement, lack of arrow or map makes you get lost easily, way too linear, not enough Minion races

Overlord's main feature is letting you be evil. You can control the direction of the game by being evil or erm...REALLY evil. Your main focus are your Minions which you use to fight baddies, move objects in your way, or get them. You have four races which are Browns (your main fighting Minions), Reds (long distance Minions that are immune to fire), Blues (which are weak but can revive downed Minions and can take down magical creatures and are immune to water), and Greens (they can ambush large enemies and rip them apart). When you acquire all the Minion gives you can summon them via holes throughout the game. You're main goal is to go from world to world helping the people so you can find parts from your destroyed tower. You can save damsels in distress to have as your mistresses and receive items like smelters for armor and weapon upgrades, blue, red, and yellow objects to increase mana, health, and maximum Minions. You are able to sweep your Minions to specific places with your right analog stick to solve puzzle and what not. All these features are fine and dandy but with the lack of a map or arrow you get lost ALL the time. Without a FAQ you'll have no idea what to do most of the time. You yourself can attack foes but you just mash the A button and it's the same 3 hit combo over and over again. Of course you can use your powers like shields, fireballs, and berserk your Minions but it doesn't help much sometimes. This game could have been so much more if you were more involved in the game. It's like a 3rd person real time strategy. There is a lot to do in the game but sometimes you just saying forget it and never playing it again. The game is very unforgiving with a lack of checkpoints. The graphics are pretty good and so is the audio but nothing that says next-gen in your face. The voice acting and dialog is very funny here and that helps ease some of the pain. Overlord is a great rental but nothing really more.
