    Above all else, fun. A sloppy, not so pretty effort for sure, the innovative play control and old fashioned challenge dissolves that barrier away.
  2. For anyone above the age of 12, Pryzm Chapter One: The Dark Unicorn is quite forgettable.
  3. Actually playable, not too hard on the eyes, and pretty darn fun for those of us who hold to our classic fantasy movies despite the passage of time.

    Just a third-person action game with a respectable storyline and an interesting soundtrack paired with gameplay that simply can't deliver the goods.
  5. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
    Graphics are average at best, combat is kind of shaky, and the actual quests are rather uninspired. [Sept 2002, p.117]
  6. The very definition of interactive mediocrity: good while it lasts, but hardly worth remembering ten minutes after the game’s been shut off.
  7. A trifle of a game made more appealing by its suggested price.
  8. It tells a fun epic tale, with great music, and the gameplay is solid enough to keep you interested. Unfortunately, the shaky camera, cheap enemy AI, and a limited move list keep this game from being stellar.

    It definitely isn't the worst game I've ever played. The story line is cute but the game play its self isn't so great. TheIt definitely isn't the worst game I've ever played. The story line is cute but the game play its self isn't so great. The worst thing to me is the fact that you can only do a handful of things to defeat your 'enemies'.
    But, despite all that, I have stuck with it for 2 levels. I wouldn't go around shouting praises about it or anything, but I'm not angry that I bought it, and I will continue to play it until I beat it, or until I get bored with it, then I'll move on to the next game. :P

    This game sucks ass. It would be more fun to burn my money. It is horrible. A disgrace to the PS2 system.

    Absolutely one of the worst games I ever bought. It was decent for the first 2 minutes. This game sucks and I want my money back.
