your getting two great games and the price is cheaper then what I paid of 29 Oct 2010 $7.49. Or you could just spend $2.50 and get the 2nd one but for another $2.50 you cant go wrong get this game now if you dont own it already :)

plus you get to be evil how nice is that :D

Tempted to get it. I own Overlord for PC, Overlord Raising Hell for PS3, and Overlord 2 for Xbox 360.

These games should be played with a gamepad. So I'd have to buy a new one since my old one for PC broke.

I would suggest to not go for the really hard mode right at the start, first boss would take over a hour to kill because you do such a low damage and you would have to dodge him a LOT. No way of getting minions back after they die on that boss either. Stick with normal difficulty.

Yeah I think I got all of them for $10 early last year and I really love the humor within this game. Definitely worth the 5 clams

Sure, but you'd miss out on content, especially Raising Hell.

Yeah, kind of. But both are really good games.

I have both aroudn 24h in each game, Though I'm not sure if I played it twice or only once. First game has a bit more grind than the second one though.

The original character in the first one is not in the second one.

See the story section in both these wiki entries for specifics:

I endorse this thread, Overlord is a really good game and well worth every penny during this discount, shame I already own it but I might get the expansion.

Nobody should even ask if it's worth it since the Metacritic scores around 80 are visible right when you open the deal page.

I have around 25h on both games. The expansion Rising hell is part of the first game so yeah it doesn't really count as a third one.

Depends.

Overlord with the RH exp is about 36 hours.

Overlord 2 about 25+ hours.

I've only played Overlord II, might snag Overlord for the very tempting $1.25 price tag. Practically the price of a large coke at McDonald's. Only the Coke lasts 10 minutes, and this lasts 10 hours. =o

Gameplay hours.
OL1: 20hr or so.
expansion: 10hr or less
OL2: 20hr or so.

OL2 end boss is very annoying. It wasn't fun beating him. You have to do the same thing over and over again.

Overall it is a good series.

What about overlord II's multiplayer mode? It's not mentioned on the steam store page, has it died out or are there possibly some "master servers" offline rendering the mode basically useless?

If so is it still possible to play together on a local area network?

Come on if all of you got it already could someone please have a look!?

It lets me create a game, waits for people to join the lobby, I guess there is/was a metaserver involved, but I don't find any matches. So I guess it might be dead, it's been awhile since I tried the MP.

I bought the complete pack from last Christmas sales for $3 or something. Still haven't played any yet. Should I start with Raising Hell because it says it includes the original game? I want to go in order.

Edit: Nevermind, didn't notice it requires you to download original game in order to play Raising Hell.

Ok thx, so the mechanic is still there, means it could still be working for a game on a local network (say 2 PCs, both having the game).

The split screen (local mp) seems like it should still work, for what that's worth.
