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: The game itself can be forgettable as it plays like a previous generation game with high definition graphics. Had a few hours of fun with a small f. Too many better games out there, the best thing this has going for it is shared screen multiplayer. I wish there were more games like this one--but higher quality like Champions: Return To Arms.
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: This is an ok game but it could've been so much better! I weep for the possibilities. When you compare it to the great Champions of Norrath, it just falls flat. I liked the weapon customazation, but the levels are too linear and the camera angles are a frustrating disater! This game feels like a good start that got lost in it's development. They should try a 2nd one and this time finish it!

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.
Pretty weak RPG that doesn't make good use of the PS3 hardware

Summary: Dark Kingdom is a hack and slash RPG in the tradition of Baldur's Gate, but unfortunately the game suffers from so many drawbacks its difficult to compare it to that series in a favorable light. It's somewhat amusing to mindlessly hack away at hundreds of enemies, but it becomes tedious pretty fast and the gameplay and story do little to prop this title up.
Summary: Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom is one of those games that doesn't have an inch of originality ANYWHERE. It's simply a game where you walk around slashing everything in sight. Of course, that alone is only a small bit of the problem. The main thing that makes this such a forgettable game is how the controls have a habit of not doing what you want them to do, which means, if a bunch of enemies are attacking you, good luck trying to defeat all of them.
Summary: Like many other PS3 launches, this game is below par. Firstly, the CGI storyline portion of the game was minimal. It's really dissapointing and less rewarding when you finish off levels and expect to be rewarded with a cool cut scene but faced with below par graphics. I really think the makers of this game (I believe it was Sony) rushed it to be among the few launch title of the PS3. Speaking of graphics, the camera angle of the game was terrible.
Summary: I'll begin by saying I'm new to Playstation. I have an Xbox and an Xbox 360 but am in no way partial to one console or another. I bought this game for two reasons. There aren't many games available for the PS3 and I like this type of RPG. I love the Playstation 3 but was really disappointed with this game. It was fun at first. One of the things that makes it boring after a while is your character NEVER changes weapons.
