Guys, looking for an interesting dungeon crawler for two players.

It has to be relative fastplaying: so I came out of the following two:

D&D The Legend of Drizzt
vs
Legends of Andor

So which one should is for you the best and why?

I don't know Legend of Drizzt, but if you are looking for a fast-paced dungeon crawler, Legends of Andor is likely the wrong game.
It is a puzzle/optimization game that needs heavy thinking and planning before you make your moves. Also, killing too many monsters actually causes you to lose the game. You need to very carefully figure out which monsters you absolutely have to kill and leave all others alone.
Playtime is around 1-2.5 hours, depending on the scenario, but most of the time will be spent planning, calculating, discussing and looking ahead.

These are all reasons why I absolutely love Andor, by the way. But it is neither fast-paced nor a dungeon crawler in the traditional sense (not to mention that only one of its five scenarios take place underground).

Have you considered "Arcadia Quest"? It's a dungeon crawl with each person having their own team, and there's a competitive aspect to it.

Legends of Andor is no dungeon crawler, but a puzzly adventure game. Dungeons & Dragons: The Legend of Drizzt Board Game is a fun cooperative dungeon crawler. It looks good (except the tiles) and it's definitely fast. Of the series (which includes Dungeons & Dragons: Castle Ravenloft Board Game and Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of Ashardalon Board Game. Ashardalon has my own fancy, because it features dragons and a healing cleric.

I would recommend you to look at Gears of War: The Board Game because it's more difficult. I haven't played Galaxy Defenders, but I have been interested in that one for ages.

Sore point! It's not yet available in many parts of the world, even to people who Kickstarted!

Are you specifically looking to dungeon-crawl together?

If you're happy to go head-to-head, you cannot do better than Claustrophobia.

Otherwise, LoZ all the way. It's the best of the D&D Adventure System games.
