  • Summary: Gauntlet's hack-and-slash gameplay continues in Gauntlet: Dark Legacy. You and up to three of your friends must work as a team through eight dangerous worlds. As one of eight different characters, you'll vanquish creatures, evade traps, and search for treasure. Character-based power attacks, magic potions, new power-ups, and combination moves add to the mayhem. The game save system allows players to transfer evolving characters from their own machine to a friend's to take on the dungeon together. Expand

  1. There is immense replay value, as the game contains 27 levels, and you can re-enter area once you’ve already completed them, should you desire to.
  2. As long as you don’t expect the fast pace and energy (not to mention multiplayer action) of it’s arcade and console counterparts you should have fun with this game.
  3. Gauntlet with no multiplayer is like trying to drive a car with no tires. What the heck is up with that?
  4. 35
    A hack-and-slash fest in its most basic, embarrassing form -- and faulty, at that.
  5. 30
    It's a slow and dull action game with very little technique. Top that off with NO MULTIPLAYER SUPPORT, and there's really no reason to play this game. It's not fun.
  6. The biggest issue players will likely have is fighting off sheer boredom instead of a pack of orcs, trolls, or scorpions.
  7. The graphics are horrendous, and the gameplay is so painfully slow that I contemplated defenestraing this cartridge from the fourth story window of our building in hopes that I would never have to see it again. [Mar 2003, p.92]
