North America Retail Box ArtThe arcade version of Gauntlet Legends is a cult favourite--a four-way hack-slash-and-burn-everything-in-sight binge through a fantasy world full of monsters. It's almost like Lord of the Rings without the bothersome plot. A lot of people were probably awfully excited when Midway decided to bring Gauntlet Legends back, and for the most part their game is intact. The world of Gauntlet is colourful, littered with treasure chests that can be unlocked with keys gained from slaying beasts. The four main characters are back--Valkyrie, warrior, wizard, and archer--with the promise of hidden characters as well. The main weakness of Gauntlet Legends is its one-player mode, which becomes old rather quickly, so players should have someone ready to join in to make it all the more fun. --Robb Guido
