So me and my cousin picked up Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom...

It's not a game wither of us have been looking forward to, but it was Friday and neither of us had anything to do so we picked it up at our local Gameswap. Normally I never buy a game without reading a few reviews and seeing a game play video, but I just went ahead and took a gamble on this one.

The game play wasn't bad, it was pretty much another (PS2) Baldur's Gate game with pretty graphics. The biggest downfall of the game, by far, is the difficulty. We started on two star difficulty (I forget what they call it) on a scale of five. At about level two we realize we have taken absolutely no damage, including after fighting the first mini boss. We restart on the second highest difficulty (four stars) and it seems harder for a few levels. However, it soon becomes mind numbingly easy again.

We trudge our way through the game, eventually hitting a glitch at the max level that apparently every character gets where we regain our full health and Mana after every kill we get. At first I thought this was awesome as I could spam my favorite spell; blackhole. However, this made the game even easier. Once we got to the boss of the game, he pretty much wiped us out in a few hits. We were max level with (probably) some of the best equipment in the game and he kills us before we really even have a chance to hit him.

We ended up killing him by loading up two level 1 scouts. Somehow a level 40 warrior and a level 40 wizard get killed, and yet two naked scouts and kill him with ease. Maybe the physics of their breasts distracted him.

Sounds like the game is broken.

I would quite call it broken, but it is pretty close.

I'm a big fan of those types a of games though (good ones being; Baldur's Gate and Champions of Norath) so I was able to look past all of its huge flaws and still enjoy it some, I suppose. Still, I couldn't manage to go through it a second time.

I've never actually played the gothic games, I've played Gothic III (at about 8 FPS) but not for very long. However, it kinda looks like the same gmaeplay as Fable, yeah?
