Untold Legends: Brotherhood Of The Blade Review

Image for Untold Legends: Brotherhood Of The Blade

A light RPG, better for playing in short bursts, or on the move.

★★★★★

Anyone desperate for the dungeons and dragons of a role-playing game – but who can’t find the 40-odd hours it takes to complete the average console quest – can find solace in the magical world of Untold Legends, a sprawling medieval crusade that you can slip in your pocket and play on the move.

However, fans of old-school RPGs beware: Untold Legends plays like a Baldur’s Gate- or Champions of Norrath-lite, sacrificing the intelligent level design, epic storytelling and complex character creation that typify the most memorable console adventures. And with a soundtrack that sounds as if it was composed by a gibbon hammering on a Casio keyboard, Untold Legends is one of the weakest titles in the PSP launch line-up.
