Legends Of Persia - Review @ Chalgyr

by Couchpotato, 02:30

I found a second review for Legends Of Persia this week from a site called Chalgyr's Game Room. The site gave the game a final score of 5/10 just like the last review.

Overall Legends of Persia is an interesting game with what it attempts but more often than not feels lacking. This being said, while Legends of Persia is a full release, it was a Kickstarter that is still receiving updates and has plenty of room to grow and evolve which would erase several of the items that held it back. I can only hope that it can reach that point as the narrative more than makes it worth trying out.

Legends Of Persia - Review @ Cheatmasters

by Couchpotato, 02:33

Cheatmasters has the first review for Legends Of Persia that I could find in the last few months. The site gave the game a score of 5/10, or terrible by modern standards.

So do you guys/gals agree with the review?

Having seen all of this, maybe it’s understandable enough since RPGs are notoriously hard to produce, so perhaps a project that asked for only $3,000 was expected to go down this route. There are many other action role-playing titles though in the same price point that offers more value. Legends of Persia is not that bad though with its presentation and how it plays for the most part, but maybe you’d want to wait until more content is added as the developers promised that would give more value to this title.
