Overlord II is the sequel to the hit warped fantasy action adventure that had players being delightfully despotic. In Overlord II, a new Overlord and a more powerful army of Minions take on the Glorious Empire, an advanced Romanesque nation, in a truly epic, yet familiarly warped, adventure. As the Glorious Empire conquers kingdoms and destroys any sign of magic it finds, it's time to go Minion Maximus with a rousing cry of "Veni, Vidi, Vici" and send in the horde.
The Minions return smarter, deadlier, (and funnier) and are ready to fight in large scale battles that will see their wild pack mentality squaring up to the organized legions of the Glorious Empire. As ever, they do anything and everything the Overlord commands of them, especially now that they can run ravage and wreck buildings and scenery. They've also learned to ride -- Minions can mount up and ride wolves and other magical creatures around the landscape and take them into battle, making our band of merry fighters faster and fiercer than ever before.
Taking the 'be evil or really evil' theme to terrific new heights of tyranny, the new Overlord is empowered with forces of destruction and domination with which to carve out a new path of evil through the world. And, if the Minions have anything to do with it, that path will no doubt be strewn with the beaten bodies of terminally cute animals and littered with the remains of hippy elves ...
