The Untold Legends Franchise – PSP Review and Summary

As you may or not know I’m a heavy Action RPG fan. Saying that I am very familiar with a franchise first seen on the PSP called Untold Legends: Brother Hood Of The Blade. It had a lot going for it. It was like a portable Diablo on the go experience only with EXCESSIVE load screens at every turn.

The first game as I said above was called “Untold Legends: Brother Hood Of The Blade” a pretty basic Dungeon crawler (Action RPG)  that was released on 03/25/05 in North America. What made this game really great was that even a mouse a keyboard or even a PC by your side you could take on this whole very well built world. You could easily play this game with a very short learning curve.

The Story: 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.

At this time “Untold Legends: Brother Hood Of The Blade” is not a game compatible or enhanced in anyway for the Vita. But Sony says it is indeed coming soon. Perhaps we may even see it shortly there after E3.

Untold Legends: Brother Hood Of The Blade” went on to produce a sequel also for the PSP called Untold Legends: The Warrior’s Code. This was a true squeal indeed with many improvements. As well as address the crazy long load times. and adding more character classes and shape shifting.

The second game was called “Untold Legends: The Warrior’s Code” which was also a pretty basic Dungeon crawler (Action RPG)  that was released on 03/28/06 in North America. There were some notable improvements such as there were more than 45 areas featuring interactive objects, devious traps, destructible walls and ambient creatures.

The Story: In The Warrior’s Code, the realm is one of chaos and oppression as a powerful warlord’s horrific minions continue to slaughter and enslave the people. As one of five shape-changing characters, players will challenge their skills through an epic story line consisting of five chapters with in-game cinematics, voiceovers and an upgraded Quest Journal.

At this time “Untold Legends: The Warrior’s Code” is not a game compatible or enhanced in anyway for the Vita. But Sony says it is indeed coming soon. Perhaps we may even see it shortly there after E3.

The third game was called “Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom” which was a more advanced Dungeon crawler (Action RPG)  that was released on 11/15/06 in North America. There were some notable improvements both graphic and story wise as it was a PS3 game instead of a PSP game. This game came to little fan fair and had quite a few poor scores from big name sites.

The Story: After serving the King loyally for years in foreign conflicts, an elite unit of knights return home to find it a changed place. Appalled by the discovery that dark magic has corrupted their kingdom and that the King now plans to use them against their own people, the knights devise a plan to assassinate the malevolent ruler. When the attempt on the King’s life is foiled, the would-be assassins barely escape and are on the run from an army they once served, the assassins must survive in a kingdom they no longer recognize

So now that the Vita is out and it would be very easy to add cross play or on the go dungeon crawling. I feel that is it a good possibility that Untold Legends franchise may indeed get a 4th kick a t the can. Whether it be for both Vita and PS3 or just the Vita.
