Review: Overlord II

“If a game that casually encourages you to send a band of slathering, goblin-like minions to gleefully bash in the heads of cute little seals doesn’t pique your interest (or alternately elicit total disgust), I’m not sure what will. Playing the role of the good guy has long been a tradition in video games – one that has grown a little tiresome. Being nicey-nice is fine if you’re in a pleasant, benevolent mood, but sometimes the pursuit of catharsis demands more drastic measures, like setting fire to a peaceful village, bending peasants’ weak minds to your unholy will, and harvesting the souls of the small furry creatures you’ve just trampled.”
