           Fast-paced slash-fest

          Great hi-def 360 degree graphics, cool SFX (slow-mo) when completeing an attack sequence. A great fast-paced action RPG with action on screen, not in a staged area. Also a big plus is that you see enhancements during normal play. If like me you like all RPG's, especially the third person button pushing style, then you'll love it, but if you're blinkered and only see first person hit & miss (boring & frustrating) the way forward you'll hate it.

          To change language for ALL PS3 games simply select settings in the console menu and select system settings and the language you require.

          I had nothing else to play and always like the looks of Dark Kingdom despite the bad reviews I had read and when I saw the game for £13 second hand I couldn't resist.

          I love my dungeon crawler games and people like me know what to expect, hours of repetitive game play, hours of fighting hordes of enemies, using brute force or magic, running through beautiful lands or dark, gloomy and impressive looking caves. But does Dark Kingdom bring this experience to next gen consoles?

          To start the game you have to choose one of 3 characters to play as, Barbarian, wizard, or assassin each with their own skills and abilities. Each to their own you will have to have a go at all three really to see which character you prefer playing as, The barbarian slow but powerful with limited magic ability, the wizard powerful magic but poor at hand to hand combat, the assassin average fight and average magic. I stuck with the barbarian.

          The offers some interesting combat they've tried to take some of the repetitiveness away by offering unlockable combos and techniques, your still button bashing but at least you have a Varity of different combos to look at and learn.

          At first I like the idea of how you upgrade your armour and weapons. Instead of hunting around gathering money you use stones to upgrade and transform your weapons into something more powerful. You can buy new weapons using essence which can be bought at save points and once a piece of armour is no longer any good you can disenchant it for essence. Sounds good not having to find your local merchant before you can buy new weapons and such? Then you realise you miss the merchants.

          See there is very little interaction with other characters in the game. With other games like this you usually get little towns and such where you get to talk to and interact with characters some of which will offer various side task/ quests. No such luck here though that what I meant when I said you will miss the merchants because you will feel so alone in this world that you'd give anything just to talk to someone.

          The game at the beginning show allot of promise in terms of story but after a couple of hours your expectations are shattered and your left wondering what the hell is actually going on?, is the even a story at all?. The game would have been much better with a good story to help pull you through the games repetitive fighting.

          The graphics for the game are not what it says on the back of the box.... Next gen my backside. This game belongs on the PS2 in fact looking back on the likes of Champions and Baldars gate on the PS2 these games in some areas, such as water effects, put Dark Kingdom to shame.

          This game is average at best there are much better dungeon crawlers and RPGs out there, the game is fun at times and offers some nice combos and fighting techniques as well as a interesting way to upgrade weapons and armour, but with a poor story and little interaction I doubt many people will see it to the end... I still haven't but I do find myself going back to the game when I have nothing else to play.

          I love all things RPG but somehow for the PS3 I expected more. gameplay etc is good but watch out for the awkward camera angles and some quite frustrating glitches. Other than that I enjoyed playing through it, not sure there is quite enough difference in characters. i think it's the best avaialble at present.

           Untold Legends : Dark Kingdom Really Superb

          Saw this for sale and not being a gamer as such bar from solitaire, free cell and the likes of them have always struggled with things like Sonic the Hedgehog although my mates 6 year flies through it - cry cry sniff sniff.

          Always liked the look of the fantasy games so other half got a PS3 so I bought this with his card - thanks darling ;-)

          I opted for being the Wizard and am currently on level 14 at the moment on the really basic level.

          PERFECT for the likes of me who is rubbish at controlling the direction of my character. The fight scenes are fine and simple and I did well just by pressing the buttons furiously. Got mega stuck at one point but between other half and me in a team working brain storming I got passed it although it took me about 3 hours until other half helped me out with ideas but I did it on my own :-)

          Lots of magic spells and movements and puzzles to work out. And after the initial feeling quite motion sick from getting to grips with the angle shots and feeling more inexperienced with gaming than most 3 year olds.

          This to me is like the Mills and Boon of the gaming world which for me is totally what I wanted something which requires abit of thought little skill and total playability.

          Why can't there be more games like this that are purely playable and not too hard.
