Untold Legends: The Warriors Code
Continuing on the
popular Untold Legends series, The Warriors Code is a fantastic journey
for both new and old fans of the game that really shows the strengths of
One of the things that I like about this game is the
fact that itís using the Baldurís Gate engine as previously seen in Dark
Alliance for the PS2 and if you have not played that game you really
need your head checked as it is sweet as heck. I donít know if you can
get it anymore but you sure as heck should.
The last version of the game had some issues with low
res textures and the way that the characters and other effects
interacted with those. There were some real issues there, despite the
fact that the game was tons of fun but in this version itís all fixed up
and the way that the title plays is great.
Framerates for this game are good and the weapons and
spells effects look great throughout the title. Explosions resonate
throughout the game, lighting is well rendered and the whole thing is a
treat to watch.
There really isnít too much in the way of storyline
in this title, however you wonít care too much as youíll be having too
much fine playing your way through the game and battling all the baddies
that are thrown your way that you have to defeat before you can move
onto the next level. Fighting is what itís all about and getting jiggy
with all things magical is also a ton of fun.
Adding to the chaos of the game this time is also a
powerup or changling attack called the Fury that allows you to change
form and do more damage whilst in an altered state. You canít rock the
magic though when you are changed so ultimately you will find as your
human figure gets more powerful that the need for the beast form
ultimately becomes redundant.
One of the things that I loved about this series is
the fact that you can play a pretty mean co op game with a minimum of
fuss that is in my opinion the best part of the title. The control
system is intuitive and the learning curve to sort yourself out is
extremely minimal with commands mapped to a point that you will find it
all easy to figure out.
As you play your way through the game you will find
that you are picking up treasure, weapons and other goodies that help
you in your quest. As per other titles of this nature, you will be able
to upgrade and repair the items in your inventory to increase the power
of your attacks and other bits and pieces.
This is an engaging game that will help you lose
track of reality for some time. The action is fast paced and the
challenge is wading your way through it all and making it in one piece.
I also found that The Warriors Code is one of those games that you will
happily play more than once certainly making it worth the cost of entry.
