Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows (PlayStation 2)


Whether you play it alone or with friends, this uninspired update to the '80s swords-and-sorcery arcade dungeon crawl misses the mark with its boring, mindless action and short, forgettable quest.

In the land of hack and slash action games, the Gauntlet series is king. The original had gamers pumping quarters in tremendous numbers. Over the years the game has experienced...

TNA: Impact! (PS2) Review #2


Midway promised us a good arcade-based wrestling game, one Russo swerve later, and we ended up with the worst wrestling game of all time.

TNA iMPACT! (PS2) Review


Wrestling Zone's Mike Campbell hits the ring with the PS2 version of TNA iMPACT!

TNA Impact!


Professional wrestling's second-biggest promotion stumbles in an otherwise promising videogame debut.

Capable grappling and location damage systems; smooth animation

Minimal features; story mode matches are boring; no Curry Man

You'll feel great sorrow after beating the game in only a few short hours.

Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows


One of the games that I had been most looking forward to for the last six months to a year was Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows. The original arcade machine ate enough of my quarters to fund a small third world militia. Over the years I have picked up various...

Online multiplayer ; Combo attacks

Dumbed down gameplay ; Short ; Boringly linear levels ; No, I mean it's really short ; Why does the end boss have the tools of his destruction right there pointing at him

Don't even bother renting, buying used or stealing. Go find a copy of Gauntlet: Legends or Gauntlet: Dark Legacy instead.

It,s been a long time since Gauntlet first appeared on the scene as an arcade game with 25-cent admissions. Although Gauntlet was an excellent hack-and-slash action game back in its day, and was one of the first arcade games to successfully implement...

Looks like the old arcade favorite couldn't be revived.

Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows


Warrior needs food ? Badly!" With these four words, a quarter munching franchise was born. When Midway launched the classic arcade hit Gauntlet in 1984, they distilled the dungeon crawling essence into a few basic elements: heroes with different...

Although it's a good idea to revisit the older Gauntlet franchise, this isn't exactly the way to do it. The plot is inconsequential, the characters are less than one dimensional and the game is radically overbalanced, amongst other issues. If you're...
