Overlord II - Review @ Atomic Gamer

by Magerette, 2009-07-15 17:38:11

Atomic Gamer reviews the XBox 360 version of Codemasters' and Triumph Studios' Overlord II, giving it an overall rating of 70% but aren't happy with the technical aspects:


Like a lot of people, I wanted to love Overlord II and at first, it seemed destined to happen. The game gives a great first impression with some of the best and funniest writing and voice acting there is and some of the best-looking graphics you'll ever see. Unfortunately, it becomes quickly apparent that the polish is all cosmetic and every one of the former game's problems are still there, just under the surface. While certain parts of the game are tremendous fun, Overlord II fails to represent a significant improvement over the first game as lack of player guidance, control issues, collision problems and poor camera control conspire to kill the fun.
