Summary: Untold Legends is very similar to games like Baulder's Gate and Champions of Norrath. SOE does a pretty good job with the game, but there are a few problems. There is virtually no storyline, the framerate bogs down in multiplayer, and the automatically generated levels are pretty poor. Just look at the game as what it is: a mindless hack 'n' slash.
Conclusion: This is more RPG than action/adventure. I love this game. Got it when it first came out and completed it a few weeks later, doesn't take long to complete but that's what most PSP games are like. i still keep going back to it though. A lot of reviews say it is rubbish but I for one really enjoy it and the overhead view has no problems.
Summary: If you liked Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance on your console, you will adore this game. Just like many other action roleplaying games it can deliver what it says. A good story, with a great item and level system. If you wan't an role playing game, this is the one for your PSP.
Conclusion: I have read all the reviews of this game, and in the end I had to agree with them- this game gets dull. When I first started playing, it took a little while to get used to the menu system (upgrades and items etc) but found the game quite exciting- hacking and slashing my way through giant spiders etc. Then someone sends you on a mission out of the town. 'Great' I thought. So I venture into a forest and hack and slash more monsters, get the bad guy, come home.
