Summary: This game is something that you'd expect for a PS1, not a PS3. Treasure chests are almost nonexistent. While playing coop with my husband, the camera angle stays far above us so it looks down on our heads and most of the time we can't see our characters because all the trees are in the way. Can't say what it's like in one-player mode since we've only played it once. I did like the way equipping and upgrading your items and skills works.
Summary: Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom happen to be one of my first PS3 game back when I got my PS3 in 2009. I picked it up along with a variety of titles that had already been released. It just so happens that Dark Kingdom was my least favorite of the bunch, in fact at the time I beat once over the span of two weeks and haven't even touched the game since.
Summary: I played the Champions/Baldor's Gate games and was hoping this would be very much like them. Not so. Although I was enjoying the more simplified combat and item choices, I eventually got to a level where it seemed that jumping onto small platforms or outcroppings was the main goal. Unfortunately, many of these jumps or crossings (narrow bridges) resulted in the death of your character if they were missed or if you slipped off one.

Summary: Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom is another offer from Sony Online Entertainment along the same line as Champions of Norath. However, it proves itself to be falling short of what gamers expect the game to be. The story is cliche full of dark arts, possession, addiction to power and betrayal. So you can't really expect much as they were just excuses for you to go through dungeons after dungeons. There are only 3 character classes you can choose from.
Summary: well my gf and I love RPG like Baldurs Gate and such. We have been looking at this game and we were hoping for a good experience. WE started playing then THE CAMERA RUINED THE GAME!!! Don't buy this unless you want to give your right thumb a workout.
Summary: My issue is less with the RPG aspects - or lack thereof - in this game. Maybe it's a problem with the Playstation controller or maybe it's me, but even after ten hours of playing I found it difficult to control and move the character around. The camera control leaves much to be desired as well: sometimes the perspective changes at the most inopportune moment.
Summary: Snowblind Studios reinvented the Action RPG genre for consoles back in 2001 with Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance. A game that was more Diablo II than Baldur's gate, but that did not hold the title back. It combined superb artwork, character design and technically proficient graphics showing console owners what the hype was about action RPGs. It was fast paced, contain lots of replay value, co-op and a nifty little story.
Summary: This game is no fun, not even remotely. I tried to get into it, but its just not that great. The camera freaks out when you get close to a tree, because its always on auto-focus. The management menu is very tedious and its hard to find where your supposed to go, or to find out what your supposed to be doing. Truth is the Chamions series has accomplished what this game had hoped for.
