Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade

Gaming Evolution
11 April 2006
  • Conclusion: The first major gripe anyone will have to say about this title is that the loading times are too long. Well you have to realize that the handheld is cd-based, so loading times are expected. Though 12 seconds can be a little bit too long, when it comes to this game, it’s all worth it. Great attention was paid to the overall detail of this immersive project.

  • Excerpt: When I rented this game from the local video store, right after I handed over the money, the man behind counter said, "Yeah, this game kinda sucks. I hated it." In my mind I was thinking, "Nooo! I just wasted 10 bucks on something I have to keep for a week!" I will say this though. It wasn't as bad as I thought. I actually had a some fun with this game, but it got boring after awhile. The opening cut-scene was terrible.

Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade

The Gamers Temple
3 March 2006
  • Excerpt: Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade takes the simple yet addictive dungeon hack play of the Champions of Norrath games and puts it into a tight portable package for play on the PSP. Untold Legends features the same type of endless stream of enemies gameplay as found in its console cousins, but the move to a smaller system has resulted in cutbacks in the size of the game’s world and in the depth of its storyline.

Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade

Playstation Illustrated
6 January 2006
  • Excerpt: As a fan of hack n’ slash RPGs, it doesn’t take much to get me into a game like Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade . Just give me a sword, some magic, and a few health potions, and point me in the direction of the nearest horde of enemies. Even though all of these elements can be found in Untold Legends , they come with a dull feeling of déjà vu. Although it’s a decent entry into the hack n’ slash genre, no new elements are presented in the game.

Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade

Portable Review
22 October 2005
  • Excerpt: What comes to mind when someone mentions the words 'action RPG'? Do fond memories of Link and his 'never ending quest to save his boyfriend' permeate your imagination? Oh wait, that's Xandir from 'Drawn Together'. My bad. Sword of Mana perhaps? Well, Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade is nothing like those two games. UT is a Diablo clone. If you've enjoyed it or its offspring (D2, Sacred, Divine Divinity, etc), you will most certainly like the portable incarnation.

22 July 2005
  • Excerpt: Ever since Diablo, hack-and-slash RPGs have become a dime a dozen. Scores of imitations to the popular PC game have been released across every console under the sun with varying results, so it’s no surprise that the PSP got one right at launch. Sony has spent sometime with this type of game before on the PS2 with Champions of Norrath and their experience shows with their PSP release of Untold Legends , the first of certainly many hack-and-slash RPGs for the system.

Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade

Game Over Online
8 June 2005
  • Excerpt: Untold Legends is a game that's received kind of a tough break. It really stems from some strange belief that Untold Legends was going to be something completely different than what it ended up as. In other words, people thought it was going to be something that it's not. Everyone was looking for depth and all they found was a mixture of Diablo with some Dark Alliance thrown in for fun. The story is of standard fare.

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
7 June 2005
  • Excerpt: Games like this are always a means to an end. There's an underlying story, of course, complete with hokey writing and characters that send you on missions to keep you moving back and forth throughout the game's 70+ dungeons, but none of that stuff is really the point. Untold Legends, like most hack-and-slash games, is all about character development, pure and simple. That's where the payoff comes from.
