Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows – Consumer Guide

Tera Kirk's picture

According to the ESRB, this game contains: Violence

Parents shouldn't be worried about letting their young teenagers play Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows. There's no swearing, no sexual content whatsoever, and the violence is completely bloodless. (Sometimes players and monsters can be lit on fire, but, again, it's not a gory kind of violence).

Multiplayer fans will get a little fun out of it, but the repetitive combat gets wearying after a while. Thankfully, the levels are short enough not to wear out their welcome.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers have been left in the dust, sadly. The story scenes that introduce a new level have no captions, and nor do the game's reminders that the player is low on health ("Red wizard needs food...badly. Blue warrior is about to die"). When one is in the midst of fighting off 20-30 soldiers, these reminders can be very helpful, and Midway could've made them more accessible.
