Gauntlet is not a game for those who just want to throw on some Benny Goodman and settle back into a leather couch with a glass of wine. Even in the initial levels, the game can be merciless with the waves and waves of regenerating enemies. Gauntlet is a game for those who desire great challenge amidst overwhelming odds.

Version surprenante à plus d’un titre que ce Gauntlet sur NES, auquel tout les fans devraient s’essayer par curiosité – ou pour profiter de 100 nouveaux niveaux inédits. Dommage que la réalisation graphique n’ait pas été un tantinet plus ambitieuse, sans quoi on aurait pu tenir un des meilleurs portages du jeu.
It’s a simple monster-fighting experience, but there’s some depth and surprising complexity here, along with some nice dungeon tunes, all masked in a high difficulty curve.

You've probably played the game somewhere else, so the Nintendo version isn't likely to excite.

Gauntlet doesn't even attempt deliver the multiplayer experience of the arcade, but it's not a bad little dungeon crawler if you're willing to go it alone.
