Summary: Let's be honest, there's virtually no story to speak of in Gauntlet. It's you versus crowds of enemies with bosses every now and again. There are more "minibosses" in this version with generals and chimera, but they end up being more annoying than challenging.
Summary: It is somewhat surprising how little difference there is between the various implementations. Visually the PS1 version isn't that much different from the PS2 version. Even the cutscenes aren't much better.
Summary: I played Gauntlet Legends and Gauntlet: Dark Legacy almost religiously in the arcades for months. When I finally got a PS2, I simply had to have this game. However, while it's a fun, simple game at first, it later becomes tedious and repetitive after some time.
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.
