    I found the control system to be the hardest thing to get to grips with in this game, and therefore found the game quite tough to get in to. But something akin to Dungeon Keeper is always good.

    ...I want Dungeon Keeper 3! :D

    This slipped under my radar, and that's saying something given how much of a DK fanatic I am. So it begs the question, a worthy successor?

    I loved DK too, but they're only distantly related. Overlord is more about the exploring and conquering with none of the building of Dungeon Keeper.

    A 'mature' Pikmin?

    Spectacular idea!

    i actually picked this up on the pc the other day after seeing it for a tenner on play - completely missed it when it came out and hadnt heard of it before, but i have been really enjoying it - simple but engaging, a great game to come home and just mess about on for a couple of hours.

    Exactly. Think Pimkin without the twee.

    Love the game :D

    I especially enjoy having my minions wear pumpkins on their heads hehehe

    I think the control/camera system works a lot better on the PC btw

    I played the "first" game caused by the good article here at bit-tech. I never regret the 30 Euro i´ve spend, but raising hell has not enough extra content for me to spend another 45 Euros. But each one which hasn´t played it yet: BUY it. ^^

    It's been out for months for the Xbox360 & PC, it's only just been released for PS3 as a combo pack containing the original game and Raising Hell add-on in one. The Raising Hell add-on for the original PC/Xbox360 editions was released before Christmas.

    Brilliant game and great humor. Worth every penny :) I still need to get the add-on as I have the 360 version. I only knew about the game when Doug posted the a thread last year about the 360 demo. If he didnt I would never of known about it.

    Great game :)

    The Raising Hell add-on for the 360 is available through XBL. I think it's something like 800 points, although don't quote me on that.
