    "If you have ever played a video game, you have most likely heard of Gauntlet: Legends. It was one of the most entertaining co-op games to ever come to the N64. This is a new take on the series with enhanced graphics and new areas to explore. If you need a game to play with your friends, this would fit the bill perfectly. Super fun and always entertaining."

    "I grew up with the original Gauntlet, so I was eager to try this updated title out. It's mostly good, and the game runs well, but it feels a bit more competitive than co-op, which is what the foundation of the original Gauntlet was built on. Graphics and sound are good too, but still haven't heard "X needs food, badly." "

    "So I was looking for the best Co-op games to play on steam and I found a review online for Gauntlet: Slayer. Its a 4player co-op action RPG and its terrible, my friends hated it."

    "Oh my goodness, I am back in the '80s with a new coat of paint! Seriously, gameplay is mostly the same as the classic, with some new twists that I don't exactly care for. But for couch co-op, there are few titles out there that are better, or more fun."

    "Maybe after a particularly bad day at work, I would be in the mood for slashing endless hordes to death. But most days, not so much. The Steam reviews are "mostly postive" which means to me that this is a "mostly ok" game, but certainly not "one of the best 4-player co-op action RPG games." Been there, done that, not that interested in spending my hard earned money there any more."

    "Who can resist the absolutely iconic game Gauntlet. The classic has been arrived and is now available on steam allowing you to play with three friends from anywhere in the world. What more could you ask for?"

    "Four player co-op action game. Gorgeous graphics! Very compelling and dramatic, I could play this all day. "

    "This is a solid Dungeon Crawler RPG game. It has up to 4 player co-op play. It has pretty good graphics and intuitive controls. I found the game is a lot of fun, but there isn't a lot that makes it unique or differentiates it from other games in the genre. It is a bit basic and has an arcade game feel to it. Overall, pretty good."

    "Gauntlet is an action RPG that focusses on working through a dungeon with a party of friends. It's a fun game that is enhanced by the multiplayer aspect. If you have a bunch of friends to play with, it's something you should pickup!"

    "I love Gauntlet, most games produced by WB Games are great with fast interaction and fun game play, I would consider this to be one of the best. "

    "I've been bored with the games I've been playing lately, so I was browsing the RPG games on steam. I found Gauntlet: Slayer, and have been having a lot of fun with it. I play with three of my friends and we've been having a great time competing against each other in this game."

    "Steam has a lot of action RPG games so to call this one the best is definitely a stretch. That said, it sill is most definitely worth a play through, as it is genuinely enjoyable."

    "Good recommendation. Everyone is different. The game looks cool. Someone else may think otherwise and not like the game so much. "

    "Fantastic update to a classic arcade game from the 80s! As expected, you can play any of the four characters in the game, each of which have certain strengths and weaknesses. You wander around battling ghosts and skeletons and demons and ogres, killing them with whatever weapon your character has, eating food and looting as you wander through a castle looking for the escape. Nothing but fun and nostalgia... great game."

    "This game is a 4 player co op, which is great for those who enjoy playing with multiple other people. I feel like it needs the option of a 2 player co op as well. You know, for those unsocial people who really dislike playing with so many other people. The graphics look great in this game, and the story line is pretty interesting. Great game over all if you enjoy this type of game. "

    "Gauntlet: Slayer was a bit of a letdown for me. While it did have the co-op feature I wanted, the game itself wasn't really what I wanted it to be. It was more of a basic shooter than I was expecting and so just didn't work for me. "

    "I believe that this solution to the problem is adequate. Although it is possible to recommend a different selection on local Co-op games available for PC"

    "Why do almost all games have evil, death and killing in them? The first thing you see is the rating that indicates it has "blood, gore and violence." Not what I am interested in as far as games go. Plus, I am of the opinion that very few parents even have a clue as to what types of games their kids are playing. This type of game is not for me. But, as far as the graphics and action go, it is quite advanced for a game you can play on pretty much any computer. The graphic designers for the game sure nailed the look for the genre."

    "This remake of the classic 1985 game by Atari Games features updated graphics, a top-down view and co-op multiplayer gameplay. I liked this dungeon crawler-style game. It looks nice and is fun to play with friends."

    "Gauntlet: Slayer is really an incredible game. You wouldn't believe the attention to detail that went into this thing. It's a co-op multiplayer game so you'll never run out of fun things to do."

    "A good enough job of covering the basics for me. I think the solution could have included more detail and would prefer it did but I'll give it a 3 out of 5 for summarizing in an easy to grasp manner."
