  1. This dazzling little gem for the small screen is one of the best in the first crop of games for Sony's new PSP. It's everything a handheld adventure should be: easy to see, easy to play, fun to play alone or with other people and strikingly detailed.
  2. The thing that does keep it different is that fact that each character has access to unique weapons and spells, which makes it worthwhile to go through the game with each class of character.
  3. 76
    It's a complete game, awkwardly balanced but still a good, long adventure, and a good recommendation for times you want mindless fun with a chance for some thinking if you feel the urge. But it does not have all of its powers under control.
  4. 70
    Does a fair job of showing off the PSP's technical prowess. As a fairly straightforward hack-and-slash RPG, Untold Legends fits the bill. Just don't expect it to match the bliss that is "Diablo II."
  5. As a portable title, Untold Legends knows that its payoff has to be immediate and frequent and it graciously complies, with even the briefest morning commute diversion yielding at least one quest completed, at least one level gained and frequently another full wardrobe change rounding off a constant feeling of accomplishment. [June 2005, p.86]
  6. The problem with Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade is the simple fact that there's nothing at all out of the ordinary. Even reading back over what I've written, it's glaringly obvious that there is an overall lack of innovation, a lack of a fresh sense of style and a new feel of play.
  7. In short, there's no real feeling of accomplishment when you level up, which means there's no real incentive to do anything other than belt through levels in a bid to get them over with quickly and move on.

    What a wonderful game it was! Since I have found other games could not play for long, such as some of Racing games,but it did! It will use lots of your time to play but I think it worth. I was the fans of Diablo and like such ARPG genre so much. Expand

    I just finished the game or at least finished all of the quests I think and enjoyed it very much. Couldn't put it down. I wish Sony offered online multiplayer for this like Diablo. Expand

    HEY! Let's talk turkey. Will this game change your life? No. But...if you ever enjoyed the Baldur's Gate series (on consoles) or Champions or Norrath or even Diablo 1 or 2, then you WILL enjoy this game. A lot. It's got a lot of action, an interesting story and plenty of magic items to kit your customizable warrior out with. And here's something that the reviewers (positive or negative) never mention: it has awesome art and character designs. The world has a medieval/futuristic touch to it that makes for some cool-looking items and areas. Give it a shot, PSP RPG fans! Expand

    Good graphics, decent sounds and I find the loading screens pretty bearable. Unlike some, I found the stat building that goes with leveling quite rewarding. You choose from 4 character classes, and depending how you build, you could have 2 very different characters even though they may be the same class. The quests do all seem the same: Go through a dungeon, kill a boss. As others have said, if you're a fan of Baldur's Gate and Diablo 2, this is the closest thing PSP has to offer thus far. It's not bad. Maybe not the first game you should buy, but definitely worth it. Expand

    It would be more fun if you were forced to press more than one button the whole game. (hack, slash, hack, nothing else...)
