In the intriguing but flawed The Guardian Legend, a spacecraft filled with deadly creatures is headed toward Earth. As the guardian of the planet, it's up to you to reach the ship and activate its ten self-destruct mechanisms before it reaches Earth. The game alternates between levels of Zelda-style exploration and stages of vertically scrolling shooting, both of which are attractive and well executed. The aircraft sequences are much harder than the adventure phases, leading to a sharp imbalance in gameplay. This disparity is exacerbated by an unforgiving continue system that places you at the beginning of a level when you're killed. ~ Skyler Miller, All Game Guide
