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.

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...

  • 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.

  • Conclusion: Dark Kingdom is as basic an Action-RPG as you'll likely find on any generation of console hardware, as mired in tradition as any to come before it. No doubt for some people that will sound enticing, but this is a genre crying out for a dose of originality and a shove forward into a new era.

  • Excerpt: The leader of the barbarians exposes you, be you Mage, Scout, or Warrior, to a dreadful truth; the king is actually evil and you need to go defeat him. And that's pretty much as deep as our story goes. One nice thing is that the cut scenes will be different depending on which character you choose. But don't get your hopes up too high. The difference is mainly in how they refer to you ("hello, _insert_class_here") and in the things that you say.
