  1. If players can get past the clumsy menu system and uninspired graphics, they’ll find themselves a great game.
  2. The Legend of Alon D'ar goes for the big story (which is lame in its own way) and the big RPG feeling - but falls short on both counts.
  3. If there's a legend here, it's that this title fails to raise your heartbeat in almost any way. [Mar 2002, p.79]
  4. Few things are more tedious than a "sprawling RPG" without any real wit, style, or engaging characters. [Dec 2001, p.108]
  5. Of course misery loves company. So call up someone you hate, and invite them over for hours of terminal and ponderous gaming. Whee!
  6. Although it features reasonably unique character designs, interesting concepts, and a huge explorable world, Legend of Alon D'ar fails in execution with substandard quality in nearly every respect.
  7. The real-time battle system is such a mess that you’ll get either incredibly bored or overwhelmed in no time. [Mar 2002, p.108]

    I agree the story is a bit slow, but the game itself is great to play. This is definitely a good RPG for the PS2 which are hard to find. I would recommend it to anyone!! Expand
