Game Chronicles
Gauntlet: Dark Legacy is one of those games that you want to have on hand when friends are over. It's one of the few games that supports 4-player cooperative play and a great party game that's lots of fun. This is my third time playing this game, and the Xbox has easily been the most enjoyable of all three experiences. The power of the Xbox is fully exploited to deliver great graphics, and all those cool innovations that the GameCube version got a few months ago are included making this the ultimate Gauntlet experience.

Le jeu est une réussite graphique, et certains combats contre de sordides créatures en font un spectacle particulièrement réjouissant. Les décors parcourus apportent leur lot de surprises et de pièges. Même si on peut trouver certaines actions un peu répétitives, le côté bourrin du jeu plaira au plus grand nombre. La magie Gauntlet fonctionne toujours à quatre joueurs !

Gauntlet: Dark Legacy is as much a shooter game as it is a fantasy role-playing game. You can engage in hand-to-hand combat, but you can also shoot from your weapon (including axes and swords) indiscriminately from a distance. While not a drawback, it does provide more of an arcade flair to the game.

Angesichts der äußerst schwachen Grafik und dem wenig überzeugenden Sound werden nur wenige Spieler die Geduld haben, die Vorzüge von Gauntlet Dark Legacy auszukosten. Denn gerade bei einem unkomplizierten und auf Dauer wenig abwechslungsreichen Spielprinzip wäre eine wenigstens durchschnittliche akustische und optische Untermalung Pflicht. Dabei helfen die Steuerung und der Multiplayer-Modus sogar noch, Gauntlet vor einem absoluten Absturz ins Nichts zu retten. Doch trotz allem sollte sich jeder von Midways Versuch schnell Kohle zu machen fernhalten und sich lieber dem kontroversen Hunter - The Reckoning zuwenden. Da stimmt wenigstens das technische Umfeld.

Overall, Gauntlet: Dark Legacy, is extremely weak as an example of how a next generation title should look, but it’s interesting enough in it’s play mechanics (however basic they may be) to give gamers looking for a bit of an old school, platform experience something to dig into. Rent it first.

"Hack&Slash"-Fans müssen sich noch eine Weile gedulden, bis Baldurs Gate: Dark Alliance für Xbox erscheint. Da könnte der eine oder andere Spieler in der Zwischenzeit versucht sein, zu Gauntlet: Dark Legacy zu greifen. Wir würden allerdings empfehlen, dass ihr euch das Spiel erst einmal ausleiht, um so Enttäuschungen vor zu beugen. Mehr als einen Nachmittag Spaß hatten wir nämlich selbst im Mehrspieler-Modus nicht. Und somit wäre eine Videothek, die Xbox-Spiele verleiht, die ideale Anlaufstelle.

Ultimately, Gauntlet Dark Legacy is a dated game that has remained unchanged in this latest release, and it should only interest those entirely new to the series. If you've never played Gauntlet Legends or Dark Legacy, then you and three friends can conceivably have fun playing this simplistic, albeit sizable, game. Although with other, more modern, attractive, and original options on the immediate horizon for the Xbox, few players can justify picking this up. The message most clearly stated by Gauntlet Dark Legacy may be that Midway should concentrate on creating something new instead of releasing console ports of 4-year-old arcade technology.

In the end, Gauntlet: Dark Legacy is a fun four-player romp that you'll want to experience only a bit at a time. Less demanding gamers will get a kick out of its intuitive setup, but those in the hardcore bunch will tire of its simplicity promptly.
