Critic Reviews for Overlord: Fellowship of Evil

Bland at best, broken at worst, this shallow reinvention of the cult strategy puzzler is hell for both fans and newcomers.

Overlord: Fellowship of Evil is an experience I'll be glad to forget: a mindless, tedious, boring excuse for a game that tortures the player throughout, much like the characters in the game torturing the poor souls of the innocent. Maybe that is the point and Codemasters has done an amazing piece of art. As if.

Evil always finds a way, but this time it might have taken a wrong turn

This could have been good. A dungeon crawler in the Overlord universe has some promise, but there's just nothing here. No satisfying loot drops. No expanding combat ability. Nothing but braindead, horrifically designed combat. Oh, and a few utterly insipid pressure-plate puzzles. Because those are always fun.

Overlord: Fellowship of Evil is, by a wide margin, one of the worst games of the year. I don't know what the team at Codemaster was thinking, but they've wrecked everything Triumph Studios had built. Either give it back, or let this franchise die — it has suffered enough, as have we.

Overlord: Fellowship of Evil is disappointing in a time when no game can afford to even be mediocre. Fans of the original games may be tempted to give it a chance, but I implore you to avoid this game at all costs. There is nothing redeeming about this title. It is a shadow of its former self, and not even a good rip-off of the genres it is trying to imitate. This is one Overlord whose rule deserves to be revoked.

A train-wreck spin off of a series that deserved so much better, Fellowship of Evil is an unholy combination of so many undercooked elements that it's any wonder the game made it to release. While Overlord certainly deserves better there is someone else who does too – you. Avoid.

Slow loading areas, frame rates dropping and gameplay becoming sluggish when you summon a batch of minions added to the lackluster experience.
