Rated 10 out of 10 by Jsmes Increadible
Legendary's title easily defines itself, because you will never find a game as compelling and interesting as this. The story is amazing, as well as the animations and triggers, and is an amazing play. The character isn't a random super hero who was thrown into a fight; you start out, and develop with the character, and really connect with how the story unfolds. Amazing game play combined with an amazing shooter, gives the mythological elements more than a unreal taste. Sure nothing like this will ever happen but the brilliant minds behind spark production make it feel as if some supernatural disaster such as pandora's box ever did open, this is how it would happen. The game gives a real feel to the environment, and it feels as if the monsters are as smart at you, as they make quick decisions on how to get to the player, getting shot the least they can. Overall this game brings more to the table than just point and shoot, but connecting with the character and gameplay for the ultimate gaming experience.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Sonic889 very good game
This reminds me sort of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you sort of take that role slaying different breeds of ancient creatures. Like just pumping them full of lead may not be enough, you may to take their heads off which is pretty cool. The graphics are pretty good for it's year, when you decapitate a werewolf it shows like it's bloody spine and stuff, the sound is good the gun sounds are a bit stupid, but the music is really amazing. It has good rock playing when the chaos is around and soft rock chords playing when it's dark and your alone always keeping you on edge, the story is ok, and you get some special sigil marked on your hand which can be used to interact with objects and restore your health and other things.
Bottom line, this is one of the best shooting games that i have played, i think it may use the same engine as Bioshock or something similar, this is a good buy especially for it's current price.
Final note to all those who say they can't hit anything with the guns, well i can't help it if you're such a bad shot.
Rated 9 out of 10 by dude17 Legendary is Epic
This game is huge. The graphics are really good and the sound is incredible. The game is action-packed with a small scare factor. The controls and movement are very similar to half-life 2. It is really fun to run through the crowded streets of New York while giant earthquakes are occurring and hundreds of Griffins are flying around eating people. If you like mythology with more of a realistic twist you will love this game. The only thing I do not like about this game is the movement, which is very sensitive. For example if you barely touch the analog stick you move 5 feet in the game. The weapons in this game are very standard, having an axe, pistol, machine gun and molotaf cocktails(grenades). But the bottom line of a game is how fun it is, and this one is very fun. It submerges you in disaster ridden New York, and you will love it.
Rated 1 out of 10 by MrBLoOdBaThMAN DON'T EVEN RENT THIS GARBAGE
I heard so much about how awful this game is. But I'm one of those I have to see kind of guys. From seeing pictures and videos i thought it would be kind of like a God Of War shooter like game (GOD OF WARS # 1 FAN!!!). i bought the game expecting it to be trash and it was. It's so stupid. The graphics are bad, the guns are horrible, the enemies are not great and the story line sucks!!! This game is so bad. The ONLY good part about this game is how you cut a wolfs head off to kill it. But you do it non stop so it gets boring. It's not fun at all. You fight lots of these non stop rollie pollie things that shoot fire and it's stupid. At the first part of the game you open up the pandoras box and i guess you let out all of these creatures. NO ONE GET THIS GAME. NOT EVEN TO RENT. IT'S A COMPLETE WAIST AND SHOULD NOT BE PLAYED BY ANYBODY!
Rated 3 out of 10 by D3vil This game isnt a ten like people say.....
Ok when I first saw this game i thought to myself its going to be good, well i was wrong, I gave it a three due to ok graphics and cool monsters, and thats it for the good part. Now the bad, the game is clunky in every part. I have played it through the end and everywhere I got stuck, the character twitched every now and then. Your gun seems to shoot everywhere else except the enemy and i know its not me since i play a lot of shooters. The enemies gun can pin point you which is ridiculous. Playing it on normal i had trouble maintaining health since you get hurt easily. enemies hardly die the controls are not the greatest and if you want to play multiplayer good luck finding people. This game had a lot of potential but overall dont get it. Trust me the other people that say get it are way over their minds they must like horrible games.
Rated 1 out of 10 by nomnomnomnom What could have been a great game...
To be honest, this game had potential in story and game play. I recently picked this game up since it was $** dollars and I love mythology. The flaw of this game is the game play, storyline and controls. The controls are a little buggy, and annoying at times. So if you want to run through this game in an hour or 10 straight you might need some advil to do so. The storyline is linear. It's outdated, when you compare the game to other shooters such as FallOut3, in the fact that you HAVE to follow the story and you are restricted to where you can go because of it (most games are attemption to allow more freedom that's why I say it's outdated). Also, you can't interact with the enviroment unless the game wants you to. So you can't shoot a person just running around, or if there is a griffin you can't just shoot it out if it wasn't meant to be (thus far at least). Gameplay follows the storyline. There's nothing to wrong with it minus the lack of freedom. Also, the visuals aren't as good as I had hoped. One of the were wolfs look more like walking rats. Overall, it's definetly destined for the bargain bin but I wouldn't suggest you pick it up.
Rated 10 out of 10 by chris d. loved it!!!!!
so this is one of the best games i have every played on xbox 360 i has almost every thing it has guns demons evil people. But i manly loved it because all the fighting and werewolves it just sucked me in. if you like to be jumping and freacking out then you should get this game. Then play it at night it is amazing. ya but the game gets hard and hard and a little bit cofuzing at first. When you get the hang of it you'll be shooting like crazy not knowing what to do with all the power that you have. Know that nothing can stop you. If you dont like turning around something about to kill you then i dont think this game is for you. If you do like it then go head buy it (at own free will). You never know what will happen next in this crazy game ethir you will die. are you will be left alone to fight for your self....
Rated 7 out of 10 by JonesReviews Legendary
Legendary is a game that i was hesitant to try because of the poor reviews that i read, but i decided to buy it to see for myself. The first thing that I noticed was that the graphics were not half as bad as i had heard about. The storyline is very intriguing, especially if your interested in mythology. The game is decently long, took me a couple of days. The difficulty achievements do not stack, so if you want all 3, you'll have to beat it 3 times. Which brings me to the point of replayability and increased difficulty. Legendary, to me at least, has a good replay value, to where i could beat it three times. The only thing that might slow you down is the fact that normal is a huge step up in difficulty from easy. Over all, I give the game a good score, its not the best, but i did enjoy it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by srlimpio89 One Word-Amazing
I actually really enjoyed this game. I remember about a week ago when I bought this. It was either this or Endwar, and I chose this. I have been very excited for this game for a very long time, mainly because I love mythology. The storyline is amazing, and it really makes you want to keep playing. I would compare it to a Dan Brown novel, like Da Vinci Code or something. It just keeps getting better and better and it makes for a great game as well. Even on easy difficulty, this is a very challenging game. The enemies are smart, and come out of nowhere. The game is quite realistic. Such as, if a piece of debris falls and breaks near you, you get hit with pieces of the debris when it breaks. I would definitely recommend this game to really anyone looking for a good game to play. Just my opinion though.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Nannan I knew this would be good
I heard about this game for a while, and I thought it looked really interesting. I saw the reviews recently, and I wasn't sure if I should get Legendary. The reviews I saw were like a 6 out of 10, or 4 out of 10. I give this game a 9 out of 10 at least. Legendart is really fun, I played it, and it's not that bad actually The weapons are cool, the monsters are so awesome and different, I love the werewolves! It's very interesting, I can't wait to try out the multiplayer (Note: I just bought the game today so I'm still doing the career mode). The controls aren't as bad as reviews say, graphics are good. I like it! I'm glad I bought it. I would recommend it to a lot of people, but if you're not sure about it, just go rent it. It's fun, a great shooter, very awesome!
