Game Over Online (May 04, 1999)
All together then, it makes for quite a fun game. Of course, you have to be able to adapt yourself to a new, original game. This game could be described as a Tomb Raider game with atmosphere, although not quite as good. You see, for all the originality it can muster, and all the graphics, it can still get rather frustrating and a bit dull. Some parts of the game might be quite impossible to pass, whilst others are easier.

Похоже, французы из Cryo никак не найдут точку равновесия между составляющими игры. На моей памяти это их четвертая-пятая крупная попытка. Может, им податься в киноиндустрию?

The adventures are varied enough, the spells are interesting and unique, and there's a nice Lovecraftian nature to it all. The problem is in the physical execution: the interface is clumsy, the graphics are too polygonal, and there's a distinctly 'rushed' feeling about it. Which is a shame, as it could have been a nice little game. In the hands of someone such as Looking Glass Studios or Valve, you feel that it could have been a whole lot better.
Power Unlimited (Oct, 1999)
The Guardian Of Darkness is een in opzet aardige 3D action-adventure die echter slordig is uitgewerkt, snel gaat vervelen en waarvan ik betwijfel of je je de titel over een maand nog herinnert.
Die Firma Cryo fängt an, mir Sorgen zu machen. Ein richtiges Top-Programm hat man noch nie veröffentlicht, und scheint es auch nicht mehr anzustreben. Oder worauf sonst deutet die schludrige Übersetzung hin? Das wäre ja noch zu verzeihen, wenn nicht ungezählte kleine Mängel die Geisterjägerfreude weiter verwässern würde. Wehe, ich verlasse nur einmal den vorgesehenen Lösungsweg und suche Raum B auf, wo doch Raum A richtig wäre. Sofort gerät die Story ein wenig aus den Fugen und ich muß mir selber zusammenreimen, was als nächstes zu tun ist. Oder ich ärgere mich zumindest über die unnötig komplizierte und träge Steuerung.
Gameplay (Benelux) (Sep 30, 1999)
Een tip aan de Guardian of Darkness himself: ga door de poort naar het dodenrijk, vergrendel ze stevig en slik de sleutels in.
