Amber  "Gauntlet: Dark Legacy Is A Game I Keep Going Back To Again And Again. After Unlocking All Of The Secret Characters I Can't Stop Myself From Going Back And Making Them All Into Level 99 Legends. One Of The Great Features Of This Game (and One I've Searched Long And Hard To Find In Anoter Game) Is The Way The Multi-player Mode Works. Both Players Are On The Same Screen (as Opposed To Those Annoying Split-screens) Which Makes Play More Cooperative. The Players Are Loaded Separatley Which Means You Can Play Your Same Character Alone Or With Your Friend(s). If Anyone Out There Knows Of Another Rpg/action Gauntlet-type Game With Two Player Cooperative Play I Would Appreaciate The Tip Since I Only Have A Few More Characters To Make Level 99 Legends!"

Wade V. Corbeil (lucifer)  "Wizards And Warriors And Dwarfs…oh My!

Gauntlet Dark Legacy Is A Supurb Rpg, With All The Spells, Magic And Combat One Comes To Expect From A Good Rpg.

The Graphics, Although Very Good At Times, Also Tend To Be Somewhat Dark In Places. There Were Times Throught The Game That The Background(s) Were So Dark The Only Thing Visible Were The Characters. The Paths And/or The Trails Were Completely Blacked Out, Making Navigation Frustrating At Times.

The Sound, However, Is Nicely Integrated Into The Game, Providing The Right "mood" For This Type Of Game.

While Gauntlet Dark Legacy Is A Fun Game To Play On Your Own, The Excitement Really Picks Up When Played With A Multi-tap And Four Players, Each Assuming The Role Of A Differing Character.

The Controls Took A Little Time To Get Used To, But Overall Well Thought Out And Work Well.

Overall, Gauntlet Dark Legacy Is A Excellent Game That Will Provide Hours Of Enjoyment And One That You Will Keep Coming Back To Play."
