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

    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.

    Flawed but solidly fun, deep as a dime, and airy as a zeppelin. [Summer 2002, p.93]
  2. While the single-player game is fun, the multiplayer cooperative quests are where it really is entertaining.
  3. While Gauntlet: Dark Legacy is a decent enough game, its main saving grace is the four player co-op play, something of a rarity.
