  • Summary: While struggling to evade capture and death in the war-ravaged wilderness, some of these shape-shifter refugees stumble upon a carefully guarded and stunning secret that rekindles hope for freedom and peace to the realm. Can these refugees-turned-heroes bring the last surviving heir of the dynasty to the capital city or will they lead him to the warlord's hand, dooming their race into extinction and their human cousins to endless oppression and strife? Untold Legends The Warrior's Code builds upon the success of the original through an all-new, epic storyline brought to life through dramatic in-game cinematics, a completely new combat experience and enhanced 3D graphics featuring improved graphics, special effects and lighting. Players now experience an evolution in the action-RPG genre through an upgraded combat engine designed for strategic combat, a wider variety of combat moves and special abilities, interactive boss battles with unique AI, and dynamic attacks of opportunity.

  1. Warrior's Code is one of the better action/RPG's to hit the market recently, on any platform. [Apr 2006, p.133]
  2. The adventure that the programmers originally had in mind is finally at hand, complete with multiplayer options galore, a lengthy adventure, and a presentation that's stellar.
  3. If you enjoy constant hours of hacking and slashing your way through enemies, then Untold Legends: The Warrior's Code is a game that is highly recommended. Otherwise, be careful.
  4. While Untold Legends: Warrior’s Code is definitely an improvement upon its predecessor, there are major drawbacks including bland level design and nonsensical button-smashing.
  5. The Warrior's Code essentially has forgotten when to say no. Pulling itself outward in every direction at once, it stretches thin where it should be richest: at its core. [June 2006, p.95]
  6. The basics are creatively executed, but, while enjoyable, the resultant experience falls far short of reinventing anything – let alone brilliance.
  7. The online mode, featuring co-op play and deathmatches for up to three other players, almost salvages the game, but the sheer tedium of the rest of it sinks it.
