Overlord: Dark Legend


Dark Legend possesses all the sly wit you'd expect from an Overlord game. Too bad the action and the once-engaging puzzles are all dumbed down.

Funny and charming dialogue ; Intuitive controls ; Varied environments are pleasant to explore

Much, much too easy ; Simple puzzles rarely take advantage of minions' abilities ; Lame boss fights ; Bugs and glitches

Overlord: Dark Legend review


Overlord is one of those games that should be brilliant. Back in the 90's Dungeon Keeper was a fantastic game for the PC as you got to play at being evil for a change, rather than the hero trying to save the world, which is exactly what Overlord has...

Overlord, under worked...

Rock solidly made and full of evil-flavoured charm, but you can't help but wish this had been so much more. The Little King still rules Wii.

Overlord: Dark Legend


While Codemasters' Overlord II will be the evil doing choice for many, Dark Legend on Wii manages to be an extremely competent third-party offering.

Overlord: Dark Legend Review


The Overlord series makes the step to the Nintendo Wii. Will the use of motion sensing controls and a more family friendly approach work well?

Easily accessible to gamers of all ages and abilities ; Utilises to Wii controls pretty well ; Good humour ; Nice touch to have the game as a prequel to other Overlord games

Lack of any form of multiplayer ; Occasional graphical glitches ; Sound could have been much better ; Gameplay hit and miss

Overall I was pleasantly surprised with "Overlord: Dark Legend" and how the game translates to the Nintendo Wii particularly through it's use of the controls. In addition the fact that the game is more of a prequel is a very welcome inclusion which...

Overlord: Dark Legend Review


Control of a horde of minions to assist you in your quest as the Overlord series makes it debut on the Wii.

Rating this game was quite difficult as it has an eclectic mix of excellent and mediocre features. The graphics would rival many of the better Wii games, and some of the eye catching outdoor scenes could even set an example for the next ‘Zelda’ title...

Review: Overlord: Dark Legend (Nintendo Wii)


Oh look, there happens to be a glowing handprint on the wall in part of the castle!

Overlord: Dark Legend is one of the best games I have played on the Wii and should satisfy any gamer seeking a “Core” gaming experience. It may not be as difficult as other Overlord games, but it's also not nearly as frustrating and much more fun than...

Overlord: Dark Legend



You play the game with the remote and nunchuk. The Prince is controlled with the analog stick, the camera can be reset, and you can move the camera manually by holding down C and moving the cursor around the screen. When you actually get your first set...

Overlord: Dark Legend


A from-the-ground-up Wii title that still shines despite its technical faults.

Solid gameplay ; Lots of personality and humor ; A focused and fun experience

A few annoying bugs ; Some minor control issues

Nice to hear the game is pretty good. I still plan on getting it.
