Absolutely stunning. That's the best way I can describe the graphics in Gauntlet Dark Legacy
. Everywhere you look, you'll see little touches that add to the depth of this wondrous experience. Arcade classics purists may feel it's not even Gauntlet anymore with all the graphic enhancements. True Gauntlet fans, however, will doubtlessly love the rich environments and enhanced gameplay. In my opinion, Gauntlet Dark Legacy
merely takes the Gauntlet premise and runs with it - taking advantage of the graphical power of the PlayStation2, while staying true to the style and feel of gauntlet.
As much as I've gone on about the graphics, the sound of the game is wonderful; imagine a series of wonderfully rendered versions of the original Gauntlet music, courtesy of Midway Games West's Joe Lyford. The music loop in the menu screens is a short loop and, therefore, gets redundant quite quickly, but the in-game music is gorgeous! Oh, and the sound effects! Each one serves to bring out the mood of the game perfectly. But when the Sorceress eats food, its damn near pornographic. Good stuff. ;)
