  1. This dazzling little gem for the small screen is one of the best in the first crop of games for Sony's new PSP. It's everything a handheld adventure should be: easy to see, easy to play, fun to play alone or with other people and strikingly detailed.
  2. A four-player wireless multiplayer mode is just icing on the cake for this game. Loading up the game with some friends and fighting scores of foes is even more fun than the single-player mode, but even without a group of buddies this is still a game worth owning.
  3. 76
    It's a complete game, awkwardly balanced but still a good, long adventure, and a good recommendation for times you want mindless fun with a chance for some thinking if you feel the urge. But it does not have all of its powers under control.
  4. As a portable title, Untold Legends knows that its payoff has to be immediate and frequent and it graciously complies, with even the briefest morning commute diversion yielding at least one quest completed, at least one level gained and frequently another full wardrobe change rounding off a constant feeling of accomplishment. [June 2005, p.86]
  5. 70
    Does a fair job of showing off the PSP's technical prowess. As a fairly straightforward hack-and-slash RPG, Untold Legends fits the bill. Just don't expect it to match the bliss that is "Diablo II."
  6. Had more thought been put into making the multiplayer options more feasible, the interface more intuitive, and the graphics clearer, then it could’ve been a really nice first RPG for the PSP. Unfortunately, the entire game gives the impression of having been hastily constructed along the most basic lines of the hack n’ slash formula in order to be ready to go for the system launch.
  7. In short, there's no real feeling of accomplishment when you level up, which means there's no real incentive to do anything other than belt through levels in a bid to get them over with quickly and move on.

    I give it an 8.5 rounding up to a 9. The game is just plain great. Basically, if you were a fan of either Diablo & Diablo 2, or Champions of I give it an 8.5 rounding up to a 9. The game is just plain great. Basically, if you were a fan of either Diablo & Diablo 2, or Champions of Norrath for PS2, you'll like this game. It adds elements of both games, all the parts of which I enjoyed. The skill tree setup holds the same ideals as both sets of games, as well as the way you distribute stat points. The gameplay is fluid, and it's great to see a nice D2 style game finally rendered in nice resolution 3d. The fire/ice/death effects are cool additions to the game, and really show off the capability of the system. Not to mention it's all in the palm(s) of your hand! So because SOE found a way to stick a ton of great features into a fluid launch title... 9.0 Pick up this game... It's certainly worth the money, and you won't be disappointed in this handheld title. Can't wait to see where the games go on this system, as they can only get better. Expand

It does fine justice to the RPG genre who are all about mass spiders, pick-ups and monsters. It's a bit hard to figure out where you are, but at least your areas to cover aren't Everquest-large.

A Baldur's Gate/Champions of Norrath type game which holds up because it's the only rpg of any sort available for the PSP right now. Good for long trips and whiling away the hours, but trade-up as soon as a better rpg is released. Expand

    It would be more fun if you were forced to press more than one button the whole game. (hack, slash, hack, nothing else...)
