Anyone else got it and played it yet?

Not terribly impressed so far, the humour is less Monty Python-esque like the first one and a lot more childish this time around. The character design is also a lot more cartoony. Bleh.

And you're in a big cave this time, instead of a tower. And the upgrades are crap.

I got it, yeah.

Dislike everything you said.

Like the additional mistresses.

Like the gameplay additions of minion missions, siege engines, minimap and disguises.

Just completed it.

Man that was shite compared to the original. What a monumental disappointment.

Karnaj attempted to be funny by writing:

I actually have a solid design document for a spiritual successor of sorts. Now if I could just get some game dev team to side with me as lead developer...

...it'll be a while.

I'd love to try it out, but after 10-60 minutes of playing, the game hardlocks on me and I get strange green pixel patterns all over the screen. I thought it was heat, but it ONLY ever happens on Overlord 2. Nothing else, WoW with max settings, Crysis with everything maxxed... blah.

Check out the big brain on Greenlit!

Someone told me to try turning off water reflection.

I turned off Shadows, Motion Blurr, Sun Glare, Water Reflection, Distortions, and Bloom and it still happens. Overlord 2 is the only game that this happens on, it's damn annoying.

This one time, at Mortious camp:

Probably the 60 bucks he paid for the game.

Bad or not, I'd like to at least give it a try. I have yet to make it out of the first sanctuary cave; I've yet to even reach the damn red hive.

A thumbs down from both Mort and Yahtzee? If a game's targeted towards evil geniuses and fails to entertain the intended demographic, I'm afraid I'll have to pass on the whole experience entirely.

Eh. Yahtzee is an entertainer first and a critic second. I like a lot of his rants and he has some genuinely keen insights, but he has only two scores: "glorious gift from god" and "utter shit."

Mr. Parcelan spewed forth this undeniable truth:

I've seen him middle ground a game maybe once or twice.

Also, Mort's bi or some fag shit like that and you can only have mistresses, so that's probably why he hates it.

Yes, that's it exactly.

And I miss the old tower because it was shaped like a penis.

Yeah, Overlord II isn't the hottest game around, but it's still fun and we're in the middle of the old summer drought.

I like Darksiders.
