Wrestlemania's Alternate History
22 September 2009
Conclusion: Concept: Wrap up everything that was ever cool about wrestling and package it in a slightly pared down grappling game
Graphics: The Legends character models are exaggerated, but the crowd could use some work
Sound: Jerry Lawler and Jim Ross do a fine job, but it would have been nice to hear a few more classic sound bites
Playability: The simplified controls don't offer a lot of depth, but they're still fun and easy to pick up
Entertainment: Anyone with a cursory...
Conclusion: So what’s left to say about LOWM? Well, it won’t please everyone. Hardcore fanatics may become upset at a few changes to wrestlers (different wrestling attire for The Undertaker) and casual video game fans who don’t appreciate WrestleMania won’t find LOWM too interesting. WWE: Legends of WrestleMania is a video game aimed specifically at wrestling fans and thus, it’s a standout title for the group it caters to.
Excerpt: There's nothing quite like a good old fashioned, slobber knockin' wrestling match. Wrestling today just doesn't have the same charisma and captivation that it did during the 80's and 90's. The basic premise for Legends of WrestleMania is to relive the glory days before wrestling was exposed as "entertainment" and still somewhat of a "sport.
Summary: Sure there have been wrestling legend compilations in the past, but none have ever brought this level of presentation. In recreating the biggest matches from WrestleMania, real TV footage sets up the rivalries and does a great job of getting you pumped for the match. ''I can't believe Andre would betray the Hulkster like that,'' you'll proclaim.
Excerpt: Ah, the WWF; I have some fond memories of the World Wrestling Federation, back in the day before that panda got involved and it was re-branded the WWE. Back when lunchtime at school consisted of holding wrestling tournaments and upsetting the teachers. Back before the majority of us grew out of watching sweaty men in leotards fight each other for a ‘golden’ belt and The Rock jumped over to the world of film and the subsequent release of a not-so-great Doom movie.
