PSP Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade Game Reviews
Lisa Shea "" (Massachusetts) - If you're a fan of Baldur's Gate, be sure to try Untold Legends a try. This little RPG even lets you play multiplayer with your PSP-owning friends! You start out getting to choose your character - for females there are alchemists and berzerkers, for men there are paladins and druid. For each character you can customize skin tone and hair style. Then a few attribute settings and you're off!

You start with the traditional spider-bashing, moving from room to room, chatting with the various NPCs you meet. Soon you're picking up loot, killing larger monsters, and heading off on quests. Yes, these are the things RPGs are made of, but of course what makes this brilliant is that you can carry it along with you, play it whenever you want, and get the great PSP graphics.

Even better, if you have friends with PSPs, you can all adventure together wirelessly, in study hall or on the train or bus! You can truly pass hours at a time without any effort, customizing your character and building up levels. It's fun to zoom in, but really, you play most of this game zoomed out so you get as much of the map on the screen as possible. The variety of weapons and spells keep things interesting. You could say that a downside is that the game is pretty straightforward and simple - but you really don't want a super-complex game for a handheld. That's what the big consoles are for. This hack and slash is sort of the 'gauntlet' for the PSP - run around alone or with friends, gain some levels, find some nifty cool weapons, and then hit SAVE when your bus gets to where it is going.

Highly recommended!
