Seal Clubbing For Evillness - Overlord 2 Demo Released

The sequal to Codemasters' 2007 evil adventure game, Overlord, is soon to be released and in unusually punctual timing, a demo has been released.

It appears to be the tutorial level from the full game and its lack of the good stuff makes my soul die a little. It features only the most rudimentary elements of the game with a sprinkling of the flavour you can expect - madcap minions and pathetic Greenpeace-like elves - while missing out the stuff that's actually good about the Overlord series: the Overlord's tower, the multi-minion puzzles, the sense of power. Particularly lacking is any of the new Domination/Destruction choices, where you define you personal type of evil through actions.

Bah, I'll be buying it anyway. It's just depressing that they release just a pathetic demo. And I'll probably be buying the spin-offs Overlord: Dark Legend (Wii) and Overlord: Minions (DS) too, just cause I find the games' brand of slapstick British humour and the oppertunities for evil very entertaining.
