Donning the armour of the Overlord, players become commander-in-chief of a fighting, thieving and pillaging horde of crazed minions
Controlling the minions is slick and devastating, requiring a flick of the Wii Remote to send the raucous rabble into battle
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
this exclusive Overlord adventure for Wii tells a new and twisted fairy tale. The lead character is in a Cinderella scenario with his elder and rather unpleasant brother and sister.
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 (Overlord, 2007), 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 fairy tale inhabitants as he protects his castle and lands

I really wanted to review Overlord:Dark Legend because no one has done so, and I think this is a good game, and I want anyone who's thinking about buying it to know that. This is my first review, so I'll try my best.
Ok, well first off just a little about me: I'm a 24 yr old female, and I'm not what you'd call a "hardcore gamer" or anything, but I do like QUALITY games. I'm new to the Overlord series.
That being said, I definitely think this title is a good one. First of all, it is NOT a port or watered-down version of Overlord or Overlord II from the Xbox. This is a brand new game developed exclusively for Wii, which is nice in and of itself. It is a prequel to Overlord I (Xbox 360), and tells the story of young Overlord's rise. Basically, in this game you go about defending your realm from various evils (including your evil siblings) with the help of your minions, of which there are 4 colors, each with different abilities. You order your minions about to do...
Overlord: Dark Legend is essentially what you would get if you crossed Pikmin with Goblin Commander. You, the Overlord, have a group of goblin-like Minions following you around that will obey your every command--from fighting enemies and moving objects to sacrificing themselves for you. The result is a game that mixes action-RPG elements with a touch of strategy.
Controls: 9/10 You use the Wii remote pointer to guide your minions. By holding the "B" button you can sweep them anywhere on screen. If they encounter breakable objects or enemies they will kill/destroy it. You can call them back with the "A" button. You can choose which specific type of Minions you wish to command, or you can choose to guide all Minions at one time. Your Overlord can also attack if needed. Fortunately, the camera works very well. The "C" button centers the camera behind the Overlord, and you can hold it to turn with the Wii remote pointer. So far, I have had no camera problems to speak...
