  1. While the single-player game is fun, the multiplayer cooperative quests are where it really is entertaining.
  2. While Gauntlet: Dark Legacy is a decent enough game, its main saving grace is the four player co-op play, something of a rarity.
  3. If you've played this game before, there really is absolutely no reason to play it again. [July 2002, p.80]
  4. Flawed but solidly fun, deep as a dime, and airy as a zeppelin. [Summer 2002, p.93]
  5. A dated dud. The game can be a kick for a while in multiplayer, but it’s tendency towards the tedious kills the single-player experience.
  6. A dated game that has remained unchanged in this latest release.
  7. It's the same Gauntlet, and we're tired of running it.

    Less demanding gamers will get a kick out of its intuitive setup, but those in the hardcore bunch will tire of its simplicity promptly.
  9. The repetitive action, repetitive action, bland graphics and most of all the repetitive action will numb you as you play.

    It may just be a port of an old game, but the old game is pretty great. The only thing I don't like is how Midway seems to be milking the series without adding anything. Full Review »

    It's awesome because you can play it with your family and friends and work together to stop Garm.

    If you liked nightcaster you'll like this game. It doesn't sound as good. You'll be mad if you pay $50 for it, find it used.
