Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom Review

PlayStation Universe
8 April 2009
  • Summary: Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom is an uninspiring, unsatisfying, and unoriginal action-RPG worth a rent at most.
  • Pros: The sound is decent and flows fine during gameplay., Dark Kingdom can actually be pretty good fun with a friend.
  • Cons: The online is dragged down by awful camera and miscellaneous issues., The graphics are relatively lackluster., Your character can get stuck in almost every environment.

  • Excerpt: Sony Computer Entertainment's Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom marks an early attempt at utilizing the Playstation 3 to put together a memorable experience to anchor it's early game lineup. Though it’s not terrible, Untold Legends (UL) does not offer up a next-gen experience per se. But with all things considered, it certainly is an experience worth playing.

Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom Review (PS3)

8 February 2008
  • Conclusion: When Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade debuted on the PSP, I couldn't figure out why Sony didn't just make it a Champions of Norrath game. Now I'm even more confused. Why port over a PSP spin off of a best selling PC/PS2 franchise (Everquest) to the PS3? Even more strange, this one's hardly even related to the other Untold Legends games. What we have is a fairly generic action RPG with decent (but not next gen) graphics and a mediocre story.
  • Pros: Action RPGs are a genre that never get old, PS3 launch title, Action RPGs are a genre that never get old, PS3 launch title
  • Cons: Story has nothing to do with other Untold Legends games, The fact that this was started as a PS2 game shows, Hack-n-slash action gets reduced to button mashing, All three characters look like they stepped off of 1980's hair band album covers, I kind of don't care what happens to the Kingdom of Dureth, does that make me a bad person?, Story has nothing to do with other Untold Legends games, The fact that this was started as a PS2 game shows, Hack-n-slash action gets re...

Video Game Generation
4 January 2008
  • Excerpt: Thanks to accessible gameplay and reviewers willing to forgive a launch title’s faults, Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade made an immediate impact alongside the launch of the PSP. It was really the first time a publisher had brought true action-RPG gameplay to a handheld, and as a result gamers largely forgave the game’s rather mediocre presentation and somewhat repetitive nature.

Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom

Playstation Illustrated
7 December 2007
  • Excerpt: The first thing you'll notice in Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom are the trees. Not because they are beautiful necessarily, but because they are everywhere. And you are forced to look through them constantly, almost totally obscuring your view. You begin your Dark Kingdom journey in a deeply wooded area outside of a city. Your view is a top-down isometric view much like those of the latest Gauntlet games.
