Hello friends,I would like to review about this version of gauntlet. After playing awhile with various friends, i want to stress that this game is made to play with other players. Sadly, online play seems dead, so you might want to look to your friends list on steam and play with any friends you have. The multiplayer is actually what makes the game. The single player is allright, but i would forgo getting the game if you getting it just for the "single player" game. This is not designed for single player. For example, the coliseum requires help. As many times as i have tried it by myself, i always ended up failing it. As long as i did it with another person, i finally won a cape from it. You can only win a cape per character per day. Anyways, here is my pro/con list:PROS:- A gauntlet game on steam.- There are different difficulties.- Coliseum mode and endless mode.- Supports controllers.- Several characters to select from.CONS:- Single player is ok, but this game is not designed to be played alot by yourself. This is a online multiplayer game. If you don't have friends to play it with, you will find online is pretty much dead.- Some lag occured when playing with other people. Excessive monsters on the screen increased the lag in the game, and caused my friend and me get disconnected. - At the time of this writing, it is not known how much longer the servers online will be online for it. If they get shut down, at least there is remote play together still.- WARNING! As with all games, playing on public on the internet allows you to play with nice and rude people both. For example, one person swore at me three times then kicked me because i picked up their pile of gold when they died. Best thing to do in this case is to take screenshots of them swearing, and report them to steam support like i did with the screenshots. The other issue is that if your a new player, you will be kicked off some game servers because the players only want players who opened xxx item or whatever in their game. I was also kicked because of this reason. I found both forms of being kicked rude that the other players did.On the other hand, you also run into really nice people on here that can help you gain gold or whatever achievements you need. I really had some fun with these random nice people. As stated above, all online games are similiar to this..they will always have nice or rude people on them. I added this because of the comments on this review. I wanted to clarify there are also nice people who can help you too in random runs in the dungeon.NOTE: Original post that i added my 2 cents on:I only recommend this if another of your friends on steam owns it and plays with you. Otherwise pass this game. Also, be advised of my warning above.
Please just remaster gauntlet dark legacy and port it to PC, This is a good game in its own way though.
Oh man I loved gathering around the N64 for some Gauntlet back in the day. This reboot does a great job capturing that nostalgia while adding some neat new twists. It's a fairly simple action RPG but you really should try it!

This game is such a fun experience, albeit mostly with friends. if you can get at least a 3 player game going, you will have the time of your life. Sad that this game doesnt get updated, but still incredible how it manages to still be good anyway
A great mini top-down coop game where your control one of the five characters (Wizard, Warrior. Elf, Necro and Valk). The Good + Unique selection of characters - (Each has their own skills and weapons)+ Great Coop gameplay - short story mode that can be finished in 3-4 hours but also has an endless mode if you want more+ Has difficulty selection+ Can be simple but gameplay has depth (lots of unlockables per character) The Bad - The camera can be janky (all four characters need to be in the same screen)- Individual gold for each character - You need to use them to unlock stronger weapons- Some talismans feel underwhelming- Needs more characters. The 4 basic + 1 DLC characters get stale after you play a lot of hours.All in all, I would recommend this game if you like top-down games or if you're looking to play a new game with the boys. :)
Bought the game, and on day 1 put 3.8 hours into it. Its a really fun game that can run on high graphics. Even if your pc is a piece of garbage it will run at high graphics with solid FPS. $20 well spent. Unfortunately after playing it I can't seem to get it to run on my pc anymore. I was running it just fine at 100FPS with high graphics, and now the game won't even launch. It appears other people are running into this issue. Not sure if theyre trying to fix it or not. When I click the desktop shortcut it takes me to the steam store with gauntlet as if I don't own the game, even when I try to launch it from the store it just redirects me to the top of the store and makes it reload.
