4.0 out of 5 stars A good book, extremely useful 26 Aug 2001
By A Customer
This book is very good if you are looking to master the game. Lots of maps of every level, could be clearer but fine. Tells you statistics of characters, gives plenty of screenshots and there are lots of very useful hints to help get that little bit more out of Gauntlet DL. I think this book is certainly necasary if you want to get the most out of the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile if you're looking to master the game 27 July 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a nicely done effort, well illustrated and complete. For me the most useful feature was the maps of the hidden "bonus levels" in each realm, indicating the best path through each and thus allowing me to unlock the secret characters. Being able to unlock these characters is essential if, like me, you want to be able to say you took the game to the limit. (On the other hand, if I had to use the strategy guide to get through them, can I really say I've mastered the game? Oh, well.)
This book also clarifies a few of the finer points of strategy. For instance, you shouldn't grab that Turbo powerup right away if your turbo-charge is already loaded to the max -- otherwise the power-up will be ignored *and* wasted. Instead, go ahead and use your turbo-charge in a fight and *then* grab the Turbo power-up for an instant recharge. This kind of insight is nice to have.
On the downside is the small size of the screenshots. They are somewhat unclear. The level maps could probably also stand to be a bit clearer, but they are certainly acceptable.
In all, a very fine book. "Gauntlet: Dark Legacy" is not a difficult game to complete, but if you'd like to be able to enjoy all of its elements then this book would certainly be to your advantage. At the same time I would recommend that you locate the walk-throughs available on the Internet. There are also Web resources giving bonus-level maps that are not as polished as those in this book but are still useful.

I could have played without it but it was better to have it. So yes, if you prefer to have a guide, this one is useful.

4.0 out of 5 stars $40-200 for a strategy guide? 23 Jun 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
$40-200 for a used strategy guide (as of June 2004) for this game is completely insane. You can get it brand new from www.amazon.co.uk for around $20 including shipping and it'll get to your door in less than a week. I doubt the UK version is different from the US version.

Extremely helpful and great if you don't want to bother to look for things. Very detailed and great for those who are playing the game for the second time and would like to find more secrets. Nothing as challenging as Zelda, however. I still think Nintendo does far better.
