Summary: This is one of those games that would only be worth the money if it ever dropped in price. Even then, if this game were on sale for $5 or less, it’d still be difficult to recommend.
Pros: -Awesome concept.
Cons: -Very unforgiving difficulty., -Far too linear., -Special powers are boring and pointless., -Weapons are never powerful enough., -Story is very dull., -Forgettable dialogue., -Boring characters., -Repetitious fights.
Excerpt: I'd be hard-pressed to find an FPS that forces linearity on players more than Legendary . Granted, most shooters follow some sort of linear path through levels, but the difference between most shooters and Legendary is that it makes little attempt to even try and create the illusion that you're in a bigger space. This is understandable in buildings, but in the open streets, you had better believe it's an issue.
Conclusion: At first glance, Legendary reminds you of an epic Hollywood production, but when you get further immersed into the game you realize that its shortcomings damper the experience from living up to its true potential. The concept utilized within this title is a vast monstrosity, which can’t be told within one sitting, which hopefully could mean a possible sequel in the coming future.
Summary: Spark Unlimited's FPS Legendary: The Box presents a world suddenly thrust into chaos and turmoil when ancient creatures of myth are unleashed into modern day society, and it is up to you, as the cause of it all, to stop it all.
Excerpt: This glorious year of 2008 has seen quite the string of great titles. In a one month period we've been treated to the likes of Fallout 3, Dead Space, and Little Big Planet. The concept of universal balance would demand that something come along to tip the scales back towards the dark side of mediocrity, and that something is Legendary by Spark Unlimited.
Excerpt: Some videogames revolutionize the industry or become the new benchmark for the genre, and are truly "legendary." On the other end of that spectrum, there is Legendary , the new first-person shooter from Spark Unlimited and Gamecock Media (now a part of SouthPeak Interactive). The game begins at the tail end of professional thief Charles Deckard's latest job, a heist contracted by the obligatory "mysterious organization" known as the Black Order.
Excerpt: As we’ve said many times before, the FPS genre is one of the most competitive in the current video game industry, and unless you bring your “A” game, you’re likely to be ignored and cast aside.
