Summary: I own a N64, and loved Gauntlet Legends on that platform, so when this game came out, I thought that it would be great because the system is upgraded and the graphics would be awesome. But, the game turns out to have the exact same graphics as those on the N64, and many of levels are actually repeated. The story didn't change (much) either. Sure, there are eight more characters than seen on the Nintendo 64, but that isn't enough.
Summary: THE STORY: Through several diverse lands, you must take control of a powerful hero, defeat the terrible monsters and gather the missing Runestones. WHAT'S GOOD: This is quality retro gaming. Anyone who played the old Gauntlet arcade games 'back in the day' will instantly see the appeal as the same voice booms 'Welcome Red Dwarf!'. The various levels are beautifully designed, featuring every type of fantasy domain imaginable.
Summary: I have fond memories of Gauntlet. Wasting hours, even whole days of the family holiday in France in front the original arcade version of the game with my brother while my parents enjoyed the sun (and our absence) by the pool. Then the version of it (Gauntlet II) that came bundled with the Atari ST my dad bought us in the early '90s.
Summary: THE STORY: Choose one of several powerful warriors and fight you way through magical realms to find the Runestones. WHAT'S GOOD: I used to love the old 'Gauntlet IV' game. I was therefore delighted when I began playing this game, so perfectly retro as to include the same voice saying 'Welcome, Red Dwarf!'. The varied realms you fight through draw on all the kinds of fantasy worlds you can think of and the bosses are cool too.
