The arcade version of Gauntlet Legends is a cult favorite--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 to the PlayStation, and for the most part their game is intact. The world of Gauntlet is colorful, 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. Unfortunately, the PlayStation version of this game lacks a four-player mode, which will certainly disappoint fans of the coin-op, but two-player mode can be fun. The real weakness of Gauntlet Legends is its one-player mode, which becomes old rather quickly, so players should have someone ready to join in. --Robb Guido Pros: Fun two-player mode Cons: No four-player mode, to the disappointment of fans everywhere.
