Overlord II Demo Available On PSN
With inFamous and Prototype already on store shelves, and Batman: Arkham Asylum delayed until the end of summer, you may need another option this month.
Well, may we suggest Overlord II? You get to play as an evil Sauron-esque overlord, who only wishes to take over the world with the help of his dark army. If it's similar to the original (and it should be), the game features an interesting mix of action and strategy elements; you can control the demon hordes and issue orders, or simply dive into the battle yourself. If you're not convinced, Codemasters has revealed that a playable demo is available for download on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. The 360 version released last week and the PS3 demo for the PSN should be up now. Perhaps it can be best described as one of those "guilty pleasure" titles, provided the game mechanics are solid and the concept proves to be as fun as it sounds. Another option for June may be Red Faction: Guerrilla, but you may want to change gears a little and try something relatively new. Besides, who doesn't want to be a colonel from hell...?
Overlord II is scheduled to launch on June 26. If you want more information, including new media, head on over to the official site.
