* DudeNotFunny: Some players are pretty turned-off by baby-seal-killing, BlackComedy or not, being mandatory to progress.

* ViewersAreMorons: Just in case you missed it, the references to your burning tar pits causing snow to melt lead to global warming and flooding. After dropping every possible hint, they just come right out and call it that even though its regional warming at best.

* BestLevelEver: The stealth run with the green minions. Bonus points goes to the fact that it gave a lot of people the feeling of playing ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed''...{{Overlord}} style.

* ScrappyMechanic: The controls for moving a group of minions, particularly on the PC version, are just plain awful.

Added DiffLines:

** The Tower is bigger and more useful. Barracks can be upgraded for minion training. You can actually sit on your throne.
** The game focuses less on contrived puzzles and more on infiltration and tactics. Stuff an Overlord would actually be concerned with.

** The Spider mounts come off as the worst where they seem to not benefit greatly to the Green Minions role in assassination and suffer from very odd wall-climbing mechanics that are universally hated amongst the players. They are considered the worst choice for the final battle.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The Overlord's drastic decrease in spells compared to the amount of spells found in the first game.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The Overlord's drastic decrease in spells compared to the amount of spells found in the first game. The lack of spell variety for the player/Overlord was greatly missed.

* ThatOneBoss: The BossBattle against the Spider Queen is this. Figuring out how the fight even works at first can stump newcomers for awhile, and the fight is well-known to drag depending on how well the player keeps an equipped team of Minions alive. Not to mention the repetitive nature of the fight by always having to flip the Queen over as the only means to inflict actual damage on her.

* ThatOneLevel: Traversing the wall-maze with the spider mounted green minions to work the Spider Queen's elevator rubs A LOT of people the wrong way. Much harder for PC users due to the game being developed around consoles where the controls are already quite frustrating.

** ThatOneBoss: The actual boss fight against the Spider Queen before even trying to run the elevator. Simply trying to figure out how the fight works at first can stump newcomers for awhile, and the fight is also well-known to drag for quite sometime. Doing damage when you finally succeed at flipping the Queen over to make her vulnerable to actual damage can take ''a lot'' of punishment even if your minions are well equipped for combat.

* [[EvenBetterSequel Even Better]][=/=]SurprisinglyImprovedSequel: Outside of the obvious graphical touch ups, the melee attacks are more meaty, the plot is arguably better, you're not just limited to one mistress (you can even get with [[spoiler: all three]] if you play your cards right), the mounts add to the gameplay, and there's no [[PragmaticVillainy "good"]] alignment (just LawfulEvil or ChaoticEvil).
