    >Underrated

    Overall, the gameplay is smooth and keeps the action rolling. The graphics are crisp and clean and so is the sound. Although the original voice from the classical gauntlet is not in the game, the famous lines are still... Read Full Review

    "Wow! It Sucks!"

    Good Multiplayer Action, A Mindless Diversion.

    Being a fan of the old Nintendo version, this will not be sitting on my shelf collecting dust, personally i find the lack of depth refreshing, when the last time you actually got to sit and play a game without having to ... Read Full Review

    Much improvement on the visuals compared to the last one.

    Pretty good not the bad. Though I would recommend renting this title though I was through with it so fast. I found this to be kind of like the old one just better looking, my brother and I had a blast playing this. I was... Read Full Review

    Not the best but not the worst.

    I like the gauntlet games and I love co-op games. Something about this is fun but also was a let down. I like the fact of a bunch of different moves and different things your character can do by what you buy him but yo... Read Full Review

    Looked forward to the next installment of Gauntlet's legacy, but was very dissapointed.

    Needed more action, the characters were blahhh, and the storyline needed to be beefed up more. The narration took away from the plot. They should've used some action sequences, like in God of War, to tell the story. I fe... Read Full Review

    I really thought this game did a bad job of bringing this kind of game back to life.

    This game was a real disappointment because, Gauntlet for the PS2(just the regulare Gauntlet) was a fun and satisfying experience because it had length and story and detail and different characters to choose from. This ... Read Full Review

    Sad Sad Game

    It's too bad Midway re-cored the development team on this project. Not only were all the cool character classes stripped out, but the whole things just feels generic, unfullfilling and makes me long to play "Dark Legacy... Read Full Review
