Doesn't cut it

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.
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.
Conclusion: where do i start the game is okay at best, the fighting gets boring after about 4 levels. the best character is the woman, the barbarian is to slow and the wizard is crap to put it bluntly i never even finished this game coz i got bored after you kill some wierd boss in a church. the story sucks and the foghting is repedertive, rather save your money and wait for DMC4.
Conclusion: When i was buying this game, it was 2 days before ninja giaden was released and because i had played gaiden on the xbox i decided to go with this. I wont say its a bad game but it is very linear and all it consists of is hack 'n' slash. There is nothing else to it. You slice something then a bigger version of the current common enemy walks out and has a health bar. These are even easier than the normal ones and only take a few more hits to take them down as well.
