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...

Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows


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!


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

Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows


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

Gameplay is what you would expect from this series, button mashing to the max. Yes, Midway does try to keep the game fresh from time to time by allowing weapon and character upgrades, button combos, and some weak puzzle solving, but in the end, the...

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.

Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows


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 Review


This recycled version of the original 1980s hack and slash RPG simply isn't worth the purchase price.

The graphics in Seven Sorrows are below average, but this comes as no surprise. Graphics have never been a big part of what made hack n� slash style games so enjoyable to play. Fun and enjoyable game play could have easily made up for the lack in...
