  1. A dated game that has remained unchanged in this latest release.
  2. While the single-player game is fun, the multiplayer cooperative quests are where it really is entertaining.

    If you've played this game before, there really is absolutely no reason to play it again. [July 2002, p.80]
  4. It's the same Gauntlet, and we're tired of running it.

    Flawed but solidly fun, deep as a dime, and airy as a zeppelin. [Summer 2002, p.93]
  6. 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.
  7. While Gauntlet: Dark Legacy is a decent enough game, its main saving grace is the four player co-op play, something of a rarity.

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.
