    A good-looking but brain-dead, thumb-numbing game.
  2. Seems to have sprung up from the sharp minds of bored high school students who probably spent too much time playing "Gauntlet." [Winter 2002, p.109]
  3. Unlike "Gauntlet," Black Stone is so poorly executed, that it is absolutely no fun to play. [Feb 2003, p.104]
  4. It baffles me how a game like this could be made. I cannot fathom why, during the development process, someone did not just say, “Enough is enough,” and scrap the project entirely.
  5. Like a botched cloning experiment from a B movie, with developer Xpec Entertainment playing the mad scientist's role and Gauntlet playing the test subject. The beast that's emerged from the cloning chamber is just what you'd expect: a shambling, ugly, and dumb version of the source material.
