  1. A fair adventure in button pressing, but that's as far as it goes.
  2. 35
    A hack-and-slash fest in its most basic, embarrassing form -- and faulty, at that.
  3. 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.
  4. The biggest issue players will likely have is fighting off sheer boredom instead of a pack of orcs, trolls, or scorpions.

    A slow, ugly, frustratingly bad adaptation that doesn't even deserve to have the Gauntlet name attached. [July 2003, p.32]

    Playing this game is as tedious and as painful as your morning workout on the stairmaster, without the pain-for-gain benefit of developing six-pack abs.

    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]
