Dureth is the Dark Kingdom packed with sorcery, swords and magic. It is ruled by Halaskar, the king you serve and you are one of the members of the elite military squad, Dragon’s Shade. Your military squad has been stationed outside the kingdom and word has reached you that the kingdom is full of treachery and corruption, which compels you to return to your kingdom where you see evil and corruption everywhere. Your king is possessed by evil forces and you need to find the source of these forces to destroy them and restore order to the kingdom. There are some interesting characters to meet along the way and plenty of butchering to be done. Although these massacres are presented rather impersonally, they still add a feeling of darkness to the environment.

The game starts by asking you to choose your character from among the three heroes; the warrior, the scout and the mage. All of them have their own weaknesses and strengths and their own sets of power which they can access four at a time. The game features the usual caves, dungeons, ancient tombs and abandoned villages, and requires you to combat predictable antagonists such as zombies, demons and golems. Although there are some treasure chests to hunt along the way, all in all, the game is predictable and rather stereotyped.


The game does not provide a choice of weapons so from the start of the game right to the end you will be using the same basic weapon and the same forms of attack. Along the way you will get gems and magic spells to improve your strength and power, but they do not make the game exciting or even more challenging. Dark Kingdom can take up to 12 hours to complete but using the same basic combat can make you feel bored. The only thing that somehow adds excitement to this game is the ability of a second player to join in and leave the game at will, or play the game online where up to four players can play. When you play the game online, you have to play a different character which means that online and offline games are not in any way connected and any stage you reach online cannot be credited offline.

As a whole, the graphics of Untold Legends Dark Kingdom can be impressive but you cannot ignore its limited and stiff movements and the surroundings are a little restrictive. The music is something which can be enjoyed. If you want to be impressed, forget about this PlayStation 3 game because it just might disappoint you.
