Designed and developed exclusively for Wii, Overlord: Dark Legend is a brand-new action-adventure steeped in fairy tale lore with sinister, satirical twists. Set in a time before the original game, players step into the role of a new younger Overlord and revel in command of the most vicious, yet lovable little critters in gaming - the Minions.

Forming a unique rampaging army, the Minions are a demonic, slavish and loyal horde of imp-like critters predisposed to violence. No matter: they're always ready and willing to follow even the most suicidal order, whether it's raiding villages for kicks and giggles or hurling themselves at enemies in the face of kamikaze odds in the beautifully rendered game world. With a story and characters that poke playful fun at fantasy cliché, our trainee tyrant will be able to take his growing pains out on the local fairytale inhabitants as he protects his castle and lands.

Seize the Power: Donning the armour of the Overlord, players become commander-in-chief of a fighting, thieving and pillaging horde of crazed minions (with hundreds more waiting in reserve) - a force quite unlike any other. Send out your minions to crush rock giants, gnomes, halflings, elves, dwarves, peasants and more. Become a new Overlord, conquer realms and grow your castle from dilapidated ruins to glorious expression of your absolute power.

Pillage and Destroy with the Wii Remote: Controlling the minions is slick and devastating, requiring a flick of the Wii Remote to send the raucous rabble into battle. Whether you're swishing the Remote to sweep the horde into battle or pointing it to direct magic spells and fireballs at enemies, the Wii Remote becomes the perfect extension of the Overlord's despotic will.

    Throttle Your Minions: Individual Minions can be plucked from the horde, held by the neck and then, by vigorously shaking the Wii Remote, throttled! This stirs up the volatile lifeforce within them and they become a manic minion missile. With a now-explosive body, the insane little critter can be guided into enemies with hilarious, if rather fatal, consequences for both parties.

      A Twisted Fairytale: With a rich, tongue-in-cheek story written by award-winning games author Rhianna Pratchett, this exclusive Overlord adventure for Wii tells a new and twisted fairytale. The lead character is in a Cinderella scenario with his elder and rather unpleasant brother and sister. He is the forgotten child while his father is away, and his wicked twin siblings are plotting to take over the kingdom with their own perverse alliances with elves and dwarves. The story game also introduces wicked witches, gingerbread men and Lil' Red, the seeming sweet girl with a lupine side to her personality.

      Welcome megalomaniacs one and all!! For true power and dreams of conquering all, this is the game that will take hours of your life!

      This is a game with a great concept and intuitive game play. In this game you play the youngest of 3 siblings all fighting for ultimate power. You control minions, these crazy not very bright creatures that will hack, smash, steal, pillage, capture, beat, chase and collect anything you want them to by pointing your Wiimote at the screen! NOTE! The game is more about using the minions rather then you as the Overlord going and beating the hell out of things, why get your own hands dirty?! Let the Browns and Greens do that for you!!

      This game is very nice on the eye, you won't mind running around the same environments as it is fun to do so (with lots of enemies throughout) and with the minions going and collecting anything from weapons to gold it helps to run around again and again.

      Ok, unfortunalty this game does have its down sides, the camera can be a pig at times, like being stuck at a funny angle, the story is very VERY linear, and the progression of the Overlord is nonexistent, you can upgrade his weapons and armour but it seems to do nothing for his powers in battle, and one last thing is that when you get your horde up, the Wii does seem to struggle a little bit.

      However!!!! With a game that is this fun to play and the real comedy thanks to the minion cut scenes and very good boss battles this is a game that you will just want to keep playing :-) good times!!

       So So

      The Game play in this is a lot of fun, the way in which you control minions is a Great way to add new challenge to the game play. The story line is fairly good, make yourself Overlord then protect the kingdom, there is a good amusement value to the game in general and it will leave you smiling as you play.
      The down Sides to this game however are, the Wii does tend to struggle and frame rate drops once you have the full set of minions running about, The Customization for the Overlord, seems to have very little purpose really Except to change how he looks. The game is Very easy once you upgrade your minions, they can just destroy anything really, And the Length of the game lets it down hugely. i was able to complete the game in a day. It was worth playing but i regret paying £25.00. The replay value of this game is fairly low as well.

      All in all: Worth playing, but make sure it's the game for you before buying it.
