Black Stone: Magic and Steel
10 May 2004
Excerpt: Black Stone: Magic and Steel comes off as a game that really doesn't know where it wants to go in terms of style. After looking at the box, you expect an anime/ Phantasy Star -styled game. Once you delve into the game, you're presented with a completely different art style that is more in tune with Bioware's Dungeons and Dragons games.
Conclusion: Overall Black Stone isn't a bad game, it's just simply not a good one. It's a rip off of an old game, with a couple of elements from other old games, but fails to improve on them, nor does it use the power of the Xbox in any way, shape or form. Multiplayer is fun and adds to the games value and playability, but it's just too repetitive to keep your interest longer than a week, especially with the other, more quality, hack and slash games about.
Pros: it's gauntlet for the new millennium!, AWESOME introduction, multi-player havoc abounds
Cons: it's very repetitive, even for a hack and slash, graphics are PS2 standard or worse, sounds are simply atrocious
