  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. Nintendo Power

    Fun but repetitive. [Mar 2003, p.137]
  5. Multiplayer is quintessential to the Gauntlet franchise -- I'm not sure how it could survive without it. With anemic gameplay, less than stellar visuals, something is found wanting in Dark Legacy.
