Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom Review

Well it appears the "Ultimate next-gen experience" and the "immersion" in "vibrant environments" weren't enough to satiate the thirst of the reviewers in this action RPG for the Ps3. Scoring just 60% from 17 reviews on Metacritic.com.

Reviews Summary
Dark Kingdom isn’t particularly innovative, falls prey to a number of RPG clich├ęs.
Mind-numbing button mashing with unremarkable stages.
Lacks the sense of grandeur seen in other next-gen games.
Average, if occasionally very frustrating example of the genre
Feels like it was ported over to the PS3 from a pre-existing console
It still isn't "bad", it's just old fashioned and disappointing
Technically modest, fun for a while, but monotony eventually sets in

My ganinja sense tells me this game will definitely lack an audience. Which is nice. Both Master Yoda and Master Lao Tse agree. They seem to be quite stoned though... Weird, this.

(Lovely meta-review Elderly dear)
