    Extremely repetitive, Abrupt ending, Poor storyline, Unbalanced characters (knights are far superior to any other character and magic never becomes as powerful as melee for any character), immitates Blizzard's Diablo however fails to achieve the most entertaining aspects.

    Visually above average, but lacks on the RPG aspect, and mainly - the random dungeon creation is a really dated concept. PSP needs a devent action-RPG, can't wait for Kingdom of Paradise.

    Limited top down only camera views mean you can't even see more than a couple of body lengths in front of you. You literally can't see where you are going, which also means you can't see monsters until they are literally on top of you. Because of the top down view, there is almost no sense of depth or distance, the 3D graphics are wasted and you basically feel like you are Limited top down only camera views mean you can't even see more than a couple of body lengths in front of you.

Because of the top down view, there is almost no sense of depth or distance, the 3D graphics are wasted and you basically feel like you are in a maze, a VERY boring maze. The scenes are basically made up of boxes joined together so they soon become extremely predictable and boring. For some strange reason, there is no voice acting but instead button operated book like text reading, which only serves to unsubtly pull you out of the game. No auto-save means you have to constantly pause to go through the saving process manually. The music sounds like it was recorded by someone with very limited musical ability on an old bottom of the price range Casio. This music makes the kids at my local primary school sound pretty darn good. Luckily it is more versatile than the extremely limited and senseless camera views and it can be turned off. This is one of the more impressive features of what is a very irritating and boring game. In summary, this game is a senseless waste of human time money and effort. Expand

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

    Its ok, but i got really bored about half way through, really repetitive and not very exciting, i suggest you steer clear, unless you like killing monster after monster with the same attack button!!!

    It's a solid first-wave title, while the awesome 3D engine and multiplayer game makes it a truly new experience in the portable arena. Let's just hope the next legend that SOE tells has more surprises.

    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."
  3. There's not much enthusiasm in Untold Legends. This leaves a game that, while hitting most of the necessary bullet points, is just going through the motions.
