  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. It is pretty much the exact same type of game that gamers have been playing for years.
  3. While improved in many ways, Untold Legends: The Warrior’s Code is still too generic to tell an emotionally-satisfying tale that can compete with Final Fantasy.
  4. It's a better hack-and-slash experience than Brotherhood of the Blade, but The Warrior's Code is still only suitable for dedicated fans of hack-and-slash dungeon crawlers.
  5. 60
    The biggest sticking point is that Untold Legends has been “told” before, several different times in several different guises. While improved from its predecessor, Warrior’s Code is not quite up to the level of a Diablo, Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance, or similar hack-and-slash titles.
  6. An average entry-level action RPG. If you're a heavy user of wizards and orcs, you'll have probably played something very similar only last week.
  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.

    I have been following S.O.E for some time now. From the adventures through Norath 1 and 2 as well as "Brotherhood of the Blade" I've I have been following S.O.E for some time now. From the adventures through Norath 1 and 2 as well as "Brotherhood of the Blade" I've always enjoyed the genre however this new installment blew me away completely. S.O.E. never jeopardized game play by adding cinema tics before and here they are improving the game play and adding movies...yummy... I really enjoyed the change in the character class from The Everquest series personalizing the roles made it more interesting for me. Plus the change to the ability trees I found much more advantageous but you could also really mess up a character. "Over specialize and breed in weakness". Gummy graphics cool characters great story gimmy more I can Expand

    The game is one of the best looking PSP game, but the crappy camera angle makes it impossible to see its greatness. The game is bland, I The game is one of the best looking PSP game, but the crappy camera angle makes it impossible to see its greatness. The game is bland, I mean all you do is run through bland environments, and hit the X button. I left this game on my shelf after the first nine quests out of 32 and I don't intend to pick it back up. It has no addictiveness like Diablo did. I suggest that you don't even buy this game unless you enjoyed the original (it was improved) or you just won 100 billion dollars in the lottary. Expand

    Undoubtely better than the first Untold game, but it's still just an average hack-n-slash RPG. Nothing really stands out from the Undoubtely better than the first Untold game, but it's still just an average hack-n-slash RPG. Nothing really stands out from the crowded RPG market at all. Run around through boring environments and endlessly mash the attack button pretty much sums up the entire game. It gets old fast, and it's anything but a legendary game. The online does little to salvage it, since in-game communication is nonexistant. Odd since more games are using the PSP Headset now, that this game would leave it out. It's worth a rent, but nothing more. Expand
