  1. Coin-ops need to be easily approachable and need to produce an immediate satisfaction while home games need to have lengthy play-life with a long-term sense of growth and development. Legends manages to be a good (but not great) example of both of these styles of gameplay and have melded them successfully into a neat hybrid.
  2. 72
    The best thing about Gauntlet is the bountiful quantity of secrets and extras. Four secret areas exist within the 20 levels, and each rewards you with a secret character, if you can beat it in the required time limit.
  3. Precisely good for two-player gaming; nothing more, and not much less.
  4. A let-down of legendary proportions. It’s a resurrected beast of the gaming world, only rather than being intact and brilliantly playable, it’s rotting and bits are falling off in large chunks.
  5. Gauntlet Legends wasn't a particularly good arcade game, and it's just as bad on the PlayStation.
  6. While there are some interface qualms, the game is a lot of fun to play if you enjoy mindless shooting against hordes of creatures. Users looking for the complete four-player experience should consider the Nintendo 64 or Dreamcast version of the game, as the PlayStation version only supports two players at once.
