WWE Legends of Wrestlemania
Good but missing........
I was really pumped for this game and now that it is out I do like it and play it every night. I can't help but notice the lack of the original announcers though. Mean Gene, Gorilla Monsoon, and Jesse the Body voiceovers could have been put in. Also, I can't believe Macho Man Randy Savage, Tito Santana , and Lex Lugar are not on the roster. Can you say downloadable content? In any case, the game is great and very fun. The simple game play makes it enjoyable and appeals to the older generation of players, of which I am. This is a solid 8 out of 10 game and could have made the grade with a few enhancements. I hope Yukes and THQ turn this into a series somehow and gives players the option to create pay-per-views, belts and other cool options to keep us playing the game after the relive, rewrite, and legend killer story lines are over. Besides, there are a lot more Wrestlemania moments to add. Like Austin vs Undertaker, Hollywood Hogan vs. the Rock, and Savage vs. Warrior. Cheers!
GREAT and FUN Game!
This game isn't bad AT all. The controls are arcade style based, and it's easy to remember! This game gives you that old WWF feeling, and it features some great, Rewrite, Relive, and Redefine modes! Plus, if im not mistaken'd, this is the ONLY wrestling game that features Thumbtacks. The superstars are pretty good also, there is a couple wrestlers that SHOULD of been in the game, Razor Ramon, Savage, Sid, Diesel, Steamboat, Vader, etc..The match types are pretty simple. Steel Cage, Ladder, Hell In A Cell, not as much as SvR 10. But they didn't have those TLC's, and Elimination Chamber's back in the good days, so don't feel down on that one.The ONLY problem with this game is a few match types, and it's lacking moves. Plus, when your health bar is red, it's nearly impossible to kick out. Even if I do a simple Body slam, and go for the pin while your health bar is red, it's 95% chance im going to win, cause of how HARD it is to kickout.Overall, It's a GREAT game and I would defintley recogmmend it if your a true WWF fan, and want to relive some of the great moments from the good days of Wrestling.
The SvR of Legends
Legends Of Wrestlemania is like a smackdown vs RAW but with the greatest legends of the WWE in one game who is exciting for the Fans because include the Old School Superstars , good but not so much modes and a Ok Gameplay , but the Game is fun for play it aone or with some friends and if you like wwe you will like this game , its good but it doesnt include Road To Wrestlemania and so much modes compared with SvR but its good if you like SvR games
Only for novelty
Okay, so I read the reviews, and I conisder myself a so called "casual" gamer, so I thought this game would be fun to play and keep around to enjoy, I'm tired of getting games and beating them in a week. I WAS WRONG. First of all, all the reviews about how the controls are terrible are correct. The gameplay is shoddy at best, and don't listen to all the "its an arcade style sim" crap it is not fun to play at all. Secondly the graphics are decent, but don't expect a lot, everything was done just enough to get by it seems like. I am not a die hard gamer like I said, but I did grow up loving wrestling and still enjoy it today somewhat that's why I thought this game would be a cool buy. The only thing I can say is good about this game is the videos and the ring entrances are fun to watch. Finishers are easy to pull off even the tag team finishers. and thats about it. I guess tomorrow I'll go trade this one in for half the price I paid for it. So unless you are a die hard wrestling fan who walks around singing the Hulkster or The Rocks theme music to yourself stay away, far far away.
MUCH BETTER THAN I THOUGHT
By looking at screen-caps and videos from this and other websites as well as seeing the roster i immediately thought that this was going to be good, then i heard the control scheme was going to be totally different from that of the SVR series which i am used to i almost totally blew off the game all together but as i was scrolling through the playstation store and seen that the demo had been released i chose to download it and give it a try i'll admit it took some getting used to but all in all the control scheme is decent its very fast paced back and forth action after playing four matches with andre as well as hulk hogan and stone cold i must say this game is by far THE MOST fun i've had playing a wrestling in a long time, as for the other factors of the game the graphics are great the manager function is better than it has been in anything in the SVR series all in all i highly recommend going out and getting this game.
good nostalgia wrestling game
good gameplay, good controll sceme, but over exagerated mucsle tone
To everyone who says this is a "letdown" you are wrong. This game is even better than my expectations. This game features great gameplay.It lets u rewrite, relive, and redefine literally. The announcers are as always reparative but they actually focus on individual characters during their matches. The fighting is awesome. Old school button system. One thing i like is u can actually reverse a move in the middle of a finisher.It is much more realistic fighting. The cage and battle royals/rumbles are way better. Instead of the same old irish whip over and press ur button,u can actually hit them over.They try to hold on to the bottom rope and actually in more than one motion during the whole process. Although some characters are left out the character selection is still great. Overall one of my favorite wrestling games ever. Very underrated by most sites.I recommend u buy it.9.5/10(rounds to 10/10)
Worst wrestling game ever!
This game was impossible to play! You have no control over anything in the game other than tagging your partner. On easy it was hard to do moves other than punching! I have had more fun at the dentist office. Horrible game, but did enjoy the old entrance music, after that the whole thing was a waste of time. I had to trade it back into gamestop less than a week after getting it as a gift. I have played the Smackdown versus Raw games that are in control of moves and the characters. WThe finishing moves were pathetic to watch. It reminded me of the old games in a arcade but even they were easy to control and play. I shutter everytime i see this game in the Gamestop i go to thinking what a waste of time and money the purchase of this game was!
really EASY yet great memories.
Overall, this game is EASY for anyone who has NEVER played a wrestling game to step in the ring with 1 of the many LEGENDS and have a good time. This game plays more of an arcade button smasher as it is really easy to pull off moves with simply hold X or some variation of pressing X. The wrestlemania tour is awesome, you can RELIVE classic match ups like HULK vs ANDRE, ROCK vs AUSTIN, WARRIOR vs HULK title vs title, BRET vs YOKOZUNA and many more. The create a legend feature is pretty straight forward, easy to use & 30 CAL slots. You can create an entrance, moveset, tag teams and edit tag team entrances. The game does get repetative after the first two-three days of gameplay, as the inring action may seem like you last match but it still offers a good time. Smashing the attack button ( [ ] ), is often the best way to lower your opponents health, but the chain grapples, and classic finishers add to fun. This game is more of a trip down memory lane, with all the classic legends, classic video footage of matches, and presentation. BUY this game and add it to your collection. EASY Platinum trophy. Plus it's worth the PRICE!!!
Great game if you like Wrestlemania!!!
At first when i went to buy the game was unsure of the quaility, because of the bad review rumors. when i played the game and saw all the rosters of all the Legends was amazed!!! played all the modes in the game. One mood just blew my mind the Tour mode. Absolutely loved it. Loved the movies in the begingin playing actul video of the WWE!!!! Would recomend the game to anyone that wants to take a trip back to the past. Awesome job THQ!!!
