I wanted to like it so much, but I just can't.bullkrieg | Jan. 23, 2016 | See all bullkrieg's reviews »
I grew up playing the original gauntlet on the NES and every once in a while in the arcade when I could. I loved it. It was one of the only NES games I had as a kid so I played it a LOT. I was so excited when I heard they were doing a reboot and when I got the game I was trying so hard to like it, but it got boring really, really quickly. I dunno what it is specifically that just made it seem so dull but I just couldn't get into it, didn't give me the same feeling as the original or even the arcade remake from years ago. If you are a fan maybe you will have more luck than me.

There's not a whole lot to say about Gauntlet if you've played the old games. It's classic Gauntlet and it's perfected to a tee. The greatest thing about this is the multiplayer. Playing gauntlet with three friends will never not be amazing and the single player experience is still fun. If you like old school dungeon crawling hack and slashers, this game is great for you. especially if you have friends.
