Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade
Journey to a world beyond the realms of
imagination and engage in battles to save Aven, a timeless city of safe
haven and the last remaining stronghold of Good in a world of Evil. As a
dark threat looms and a gathering of unknown forces grows stronger,
heroes have been called and the Brotherhood of the Blade has been
formed. It is up to you and your chosen brothers to unravel the
mysteries of this looming peril. Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the
Blade offers on-the-go action-RPG combat, intense multiplayer battles
and a completely original adventure for you to uncover.
Untold Legends begins like all good clichéd RPG titles where the player
must select their character and also assign attribute points to
abilities such as strength, intelligence and dexterity that are all
integral to the gaming world. You have four possible character classes
to choose from and each influences the gameplay slightly so you can be
guaranteed to play the title at least two times.
The Knight is your traditional fighter class with a library of special
moves and combos plus the ability to dual-wield weapons. The Alchemist
uses magic that borders on science while the Druid conjures up a more
naturalistic magic including the ability to summon monsters to join the
fight. The final class is the Berserker, which is a barbarian class that
uses psychosis to battle his enemies.
As you explore the magical outdoor environments and threatening sub
terrain dungeons, you will inevitably encounter hordes of nasty
creatures but be warned, if you run into battles gun-ho than you will
surely be coming home in a casket. Analysing the enemy, picking your
weapon, melee or range, or perhaps using magic or special items is all a
part of the varied and intricately detailed gameplay that Untold Legends
Graphically, Untold Legends features a Level design that is simple yet
elegant and everything is built from standard square building blocks so
on the surface everything might be blocky in construction but the
textures and detailing are intricate enough that it gives the illusion
of something more complex. The outdoor levels are a bit more freeform in
The soundtrack of the title is unfortunately a little muted and really
does nothing to inspire the adventure of this genre. Interestingly
enough for an RPG, the game has no audio as the player is subjective to
screens of text when something significant happens in the title.
Fortunately the title features all the screams, roars and grunts of both
players and enemies.
In conclusion, Untold Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade is lightweight
RPG title for the PSP that feature some addictive multiplayer action and
about 20 hours of solo adventuring. Although not the best RPG game on
the market, it is certainly the best for the PSP at the moment and I'm
sure this will inspire a plethora of similar games. With a clichéd
storyline, a fairly sturdy gaming engine and friendly gameplay, Untold
Legends: Brotherhood of the Blade is a definite for RPG fans.
