If you've ever had the urge to control the denizens of the dark in an outright assault against peaceful mankind - and really, who hasn't? - than Overlord II is for you. Set to launch next month, this game is all about controlling the evil hordes and even participating in the slaughtering and plundering. Obviously, the goal is to rule the world with your freakish army and that won't be an easy feat. But provided you're ruthless enough, and provided you can utilize patience and strategy along with brute force, it's not impossible. There really aren't many titles like this currently available, so it should be worth a look.
