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.

I know! I downloaded and played Overlord II already. It was okay like Overlord I, but I don't think I will buy it.

It may have been, I'm not sure. But I changed the title just in case.

It was on the US PSN last week but only came on the EU one today. Not a big shame though because it does suck.

Overlord never really appealed to me. I do think that it is very humorous though. When the demon got his eye stuck to the block of ice in the demo, I laughed my ass off.

One question, do video-game developers compare their projects to others of different companies during the developing stage of their current project? Honestly, I think that releasing a demo version of this game only contributes unfavorably for this company since they just warned people about how horrible this game is in almost every single aspect. I think that companies in any kind of industry should be more knowledgeable about the current consumer demand. Anyways, this is only my very humble opinion but, I find hard to believe that anyone in here would enjoy this piece of crap.
Regards.

Played it last week, and it wasn't as fun as the original.

Yeah, I D/L'ed the OL2 demo last week & just started into it for a short bit last night.

But so far for me, don't know exactly what it is, but there's something that seems to be a bit off in this new demo.

It just isn't giving me any of the "WOW" factor that I got playing the 1st Overlords demo.
(I did like my minions getting over with some Wolve-jacking for their joy-rides though)
