  1. 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.
  2. Precisely good for two-player gaming; nothing more, and not much less.
  3. 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.
  4. Gauntlet Legends wasn't a particularly good arcade game, and it's just as bad on the PlayStation.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
