Impressions: Untold Legends for PS3 |

I heard so much bad (or at least not-so-good) stuff about Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom for the PS3 that I didn’t even check out the game until yesterday. I’m actually a big fan of top-down Diablo-style RPG slashers, so I was quite disappointed with all the mediocre reviews of this game. So much so that I only rented it yesterday even though it was a launch title.

And you know what? It’s not bad at all!

Sure, it’s got camera issues (most of which would be solved by making the trees shorter or cuttin them off). And all the items of armour you put on don’t have different looks to them, which is too bad. The interface takes some getting used to. For instance, to determine which pair of boots is best for my character, I actually unequip my current boots and then look through the list. They’re a lot easier to compare that way.

But I actually had fun playing this game. It’s got some cool effects. The combos are fun. The graphics, though not a big leap over Champions of Norrath, are crisp. Gameplay was too easy, but that’s because my friend Steve chose the “Easy” difficulty setting. (Duh…) For some reason he doesn’t like a challenge. He doesn’t like dying, he says. Okay….

But you know what? I think I’ll buy this game. I’m tapped out right now because I just bought F1:CE and MotorStorm, but I’ll be picking up this title when I can.

    Alright, that setting was probably a bit too easy. It took a lot of work to actually lose any noticeable amount of health points, and you don’t need much strategy when you’re effectively invincible. Even my mage character, normally a physically weak character class, could wade into battle and lay about with his staff without having to worry about taking damage. So maybe we should have picked “Normal”. I picked “Easy” on the basis that when playing similar RPGs such as Champions of Norrath, you start on the easiest level, play the game all the way through to develop your character, then start the next level. Apparently in this game you don’t need to do that!

    Is it 4 players?

  • I think it supports up to 3.

  • I am playing God of War 2 ATM and it is UNBELIEVABLY GREAT!!! Those graphics coming out of the PS2 are amazing!!!

    Get it while its hot.

    And now back to topic…

    Buy GoW2, it must be better ^^

    GoW2 looks awesome! Believe it or not, it is a system seller, a guy I know who owns a 360 and plan to buy a ps2 to play that game. I wonder how the current success of the ps2 with these flagship title can hurt the PS3? This game is definitively on my list as there is no good action/adventure available yet on ps2.
