Summary: I like it, but it's an older game and very simple. Glitched it once with my brother. We managed to get stuck on opisite sides of a pit trap, and neither of us could reach the button to raise the floor. Haven't managed to repeat. For one to four players. Many levels. Can level your character to level 99. Also starts with four available classes, can unlock an additional four. Four colors/races for each character.

Summary: I first played this at our truckstop arcade, after that when I found out they had it on the PS2 I went nuts, it's wonderful and if you have a multi-tap a damn good party game, while it's no longer 'printed' I love playing as often as possible with as many friends as I can, and if you each make a file name whenever everyones not around you can still power up YOUR character, there are a total of 16 warriors with male/female equals.
Summary: Guantlet, Dark Legacy is colorful and character operation is easy. There is a lot of fighting in real time, with nasty monsters throughout the game. A wide variety of spells may be used by sorceress', executed with ease by assigned buttons. Slashing in the case of ... knights depending on your choice of characters. There area wide variety to choose from. I chose the yellow Sorceress.
It's Gauntlet. 4 Player. In 3-D. You Get What You Expect.

Summary: Let's not fool ourselves. Gauntlet, when it first came out, was neither deep, nor was it complicated. It was Diablo before it was Diablo. The same thing goes here. You have your four basic classes (Warrior, Valkyrie, Wizard, and Archer) with their "updated" versions for those who want the Valkyrie's stats without being a woman. There are also unlockable alternate forms that make for a change of pace when you're looking for something different.
Summary: I've played previous incarnations of Gauntlet and, I'll be the first to admit, you do see alot of Diablo and Baldurs Gate:Dark Alliance in it. Even so, you got to remember that Gauntlet has been around longer than all of them. Unlike those games, Gauntlet doesn't take itself too seriously and that is what makes it such a blast to play.
More than an update to Legends, but not quite a sequel

Summary: Gauntlet: Dark Legacy is Midway's update to Gauntlet: Legends. For those unfamiliar with Gauntlet, it's an overhead view, 3D hack and slash action game with a medievil theme. New features include 4 new realms, 4 new main characters, plus repolished graphics and gameplay. Rest assured, this PS2 version is a perfect translation of the arcade game. The designers have made some good decisions in adding helpful hints and tweaks to every aspect of the game.
Summary: This game is terribly addicting... for me. I can understand why this game got bad reviews, because it can seem repetitive and boring at times, but only when you have no new levels to go to. There are plently of characters and each has four different costumes. Each character has their own moves and special moves. Sure, the graphics aren't great, but this game is a classic.
