If you're in the mood to tackle wave after wave of monsters online or with friends, Gauntlet II should satisfy that urge and is worth its $5 price tag. However, it's worth noting that the game has previously been part of several Midway arcade compilations, each of which includes around 20 or more games for about $20.
For five bucks, Gauntlet II isn't the worst deal on the PlayStation Store, but its repetition and lack of extras don't make it the best one either. There are much newer and more interesting options already available for roughly the same amount of money (flOw, Lemmings, and Mortal Kombat II to name a few) and the poorly-executed online options absolutely seal its fate. Unless you're a diehard Gauntlet maniac, your attention is better served elsewhere.
