Overlord and Riddick.

Hi, while trwaling at the shops for "land o the dead", came across these 2 titles, both for 30 bucks, thats 15 each :) not too bad :)

Ive heard good things about escape from butcher bay, and i remeber reading about Overlord being a lotta fun to play. I spent last night playing Overlord and its a hoot!!! heaps funny :) the graphics are also ok. System specs for an older game are quite high though, and when there are plenty of minions on screen, there is quite a bit of slowdown, even on my rig.

Ive installed butcher bay and played about 5 mins of it, but went back to Overlord. How good is Butcher bay?

cheers

Never did finish Butcher Bay, despite loving it

Want to go back and revisit it and finally finish it, but think ill wait on Assault on Dark Athena - Basically Butcher Bay with a few extras - Redone because iirc Butcher Bay wont work on the 360

Riddick is the single best movie tie-in that I've ever played. It's sublime.

Overlord isnt that old, 12 months at most, and the graphics are damn good when you put them up, so much so that my quad core and 8800gt struggle for 30fps :)

Riddick is one of the best FPS games ive played in the last few years.

Yep i have to agree with the majority here, Butcher Bay is great. One of the few games i have actually played right through without getting bored.

Yeah, the game based on the movies was better than both of the movies by a fair margin.

amen to that.
it is less a game and more a work of art. you simply must play it through. your gaming life is not complete without it.
im about halfway through replaying it with commentary.... some of the commentary nodes are half and hour each!

What the hell? Overlord is only 15 bucks? D: Was it on its own or did it come bundled with Riddick? Riddick was pretty fun. Sort of like a mix of FPS and RPG. Overlord just looks like some whacky fun times. Few games are like that nowadays.

I've been madly trying to find Riddick for the Xbox for AAAGES :(

Scratch that. Found it on ebay for £2.49
