Excerpt: In Untold Legends: The Warrior's Code, the world is one of extreme chaos and oppression as a powerful warlord's dangerous followers kill and enslave the people. When members of a secret shape-shifting race begin to disappear, suspicions of a plot to exterminate them lead many of its members to flee into the wilderness for survival. Some of these members come across a carefully guarded secret that rekindles hope for peace in the realm.
Excerpt: Untold Legend’s predecessor, Brotherhood of the Blade, was a PSP launch title that brought the Action-RPG genre into the hands of mobile gamers. The next game in the series is The Warrior’s Code, and while it doesn’t stray very far from the hack and slash model of its predecessor, it does deliver up some fun dungeon crawling for the warrior on the go.
Excerpt: When I reviewed the first Untold Legends game a year ago, I commented that the hack-and-slash dungeon-crawl genre hadn't advanced very much since its inception. Therefore, I was surprised at how widely Sony Online missed the mark with their game, given that the basic "successful" formula has remained unchanged for years.
Excerpt: Wow. Simply put, I think Untold Legends: The Warrior's Code is the best looking game on PSP. If you want to travel back in time and make the proud, new owner of a PS2 hang his head and cry, take your PSP and a copy of this game. Portable, looking this good? I really marvel at how far we have come. I also reel at the thought of a sequel being...well, a quality production? But it is! Just goes to show that quality sequels aren't limited to Lethal Weapon movies.
Excerpt: As the only role-playing game of any kind to come out alongside the US launch of the PlayStation Portable, Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade left those looking for the story-driven, turn-based conventions that largely drive RPGs feeling a bit unsatisfied. It also didn't help that the game was a touch bland, relying on a boilerplate high-fantasy setting and randomly generated dungeons.
Pros: Online co-op play, Sizable single-player campaign, No more lame random dungeons
Cons: Basic combat feels unsatisfying, Story is more prominent but still not very interesting, New melee attacks don't feel as useful as they should
Excerpt: One of the newest action-RPGs to be released for the Sony PSP is Untold Legends: The Warrior's Code . The game is the second installment in Sony Online Entertainment's Untold Legends series, and features significant amounts of action that should please hack-and-slash fans. However, if you’re not a fan of hack-and-slash dungeon crawlers, then it's a completely different story.
Excerpt: Untold Legends filled the RPG slot at the launch of the PSP, but despite strong sales it wasn't everything it could have been. It opted for simplicity over the more traditional complex gameplay found within an RPG, and this led a rather repetitive game - hacking and slashing being the order of the day.
Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is The first Untold Legends was a pleasant surprise, but ultimately disappointing. It was a good hack and slash game, though it had its drawbacks. In fact the drawbacks were many, and so Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) has made a good effort this time round to fix them. However, even though The Warrior’s Code is a significant improvement over its predecessor, but as a game in itself, it doesn’t offer much.
