Quoted from Overlord II Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Overlord II reviews & previews
"Overlord was one of my favorite games of 2007. Its unique gameplay, evil-minded focus and silly sense of humor outshone the technical issues and awkward controls to create a fun and memorable tit..."
"PAX is always one of my favorite shows because of the focus that indie studios receive. Sure, the major publishers dominate the convention with massive booths, as well as prominent signs and masc..."
"Mayhem-mongering has rarely been as fun as it was in Triumph's gleeful action-strategy title Overlord. Released a couple of years back, it was but a few tweaks away from classic status, combining elements of Pikmin, Dungeon Keeper and Fable to satisfying and comic effect. Dispensing cackling evil at every turn, it made us want to play the bad guy more often - and obviously you lot felt the same way. Sales of more than a million worldwide across PC, Xbox 360 and latterly PS3 turned Overlord into Codemasters' biggest new IP in years. So, apart from perhaps requiring Brian Blessed's inimitable input, what else should go in the follow-up? More evil, obviously. More comedy headgear. Less suicidally dumb minions.

At least some of these kinks (such as the absent mini-map) were ironed out in the belated PS3 release, Overlord: Raising Hell, but it still felt a little shy of the finished article. With numerous preview showings of the sequel demonstrating a ton of interesting new features, confidence was riding high that Dutch studio Triumph could go all-out and deliver not only a worthy follow-up, but, dare we say it, one of the highlights of the entire year."
" Nestled in the corner behind a big, crowded box of Battlefield 3, EA and Trapdoor are quietly giving 2011 PAX East attendees the first look and demo of their "sci-fi stealth action" game, Warp, which was announced late last year. The ants crawling in lines around the BF3 demonstration may not have noticed, but the downloadable title's brief playable demo is an adorably gory challenge, and it's definitely worth a look. I was genuinely disappointed when it was over... ..."
"We go warping and fragging in this downloadable stealth actioner. "
