Okay, everybody's talking about Gauntlet Dark Legacy and you've got me curious. Is it significantly improved from Gauntlet Legends? I played the whole thing for the Nintendo. By the time I was nearing the end it was getting kind of tedious. It goes something like this:

1. Play next level
2. Running out of health? If so, go to step 4. (If next level has a boss monster, you will need to do steps 4-6 at least five times.)
3. Need a special item to proceed? If so, go to step 7. Otherwise, go back to step 1.
4. Replay level 1, 2, or 3.
5. Sell some items and buy health.
6. Back to step 2.
7. Go back and search every corner of levels you have already played before, hoping to stumble across special item.
8. Back to step 2.

Repeat formula forever until the game is over.

The best way to play is as a multi-player game with the kids, but that invariably ends up in fights over who's hogging the items. And heaven forbid that you should play with any amount of efficiency... if you kill everything then the kid complains that they aren't getting any level-ups, and if you sit back and take it easy then they get swarmed and frustrated, and you wind up doing steps 4-6 a potentially infinite number of times.

WARNING: under no circumstances should two people under the age of 13 be allowed to play together. Injuries will occur.

Whoops, didn't mean to turn this into a rant. So anyway, how does DL stack up?
