Boomtown has dished up a review of Champions of Norrath, giving the PS2 action RPG an overall score of 7/10. Their concluding paragraph:
Even though Champions of Norrath remains one of the most generic titles ever, it still rides the peak of what may now be a tiring genre. It does nothing new to please anyone who wouldn't already be a fan of pseudo role-playing action action, but there's a lot here to please fans. In a very narrow sense, Champions provides a set of features and a whole lot of polish to keep things interesting for its audience and the online modes go a long way in extending things even further. But despite all the flash and pizzazz, immediate thrills are still lacking for those who wouldn't otherwise consider such a game.
