Summary: It's amazing to me how ACCLAIM can make a game like Warzone on the N64 and PS1 and make it a decent wrestling game. The only thing some people complained about was the controls being that of a Mortal Kombat style game, which they ignored and kept anyway when they release the games follow up of WWF Attitude.
Summary: They Just don't get it! In the 3rd Installment of the "Legends of Wrestling" franchise, this title fails to even be better than the first! The so called "Ready to Brawl" controls are sticky and confusing while the Camara angles don't help any. Theses are three major elements that prevent the gameplay of the title from flowing smoothly. In the end this just frustrated and confused me as well as sucked any possible fun out of this game.
Summary: I tried to like this game but no dice. I kept on comparing it to the much better SmackDown title by THQ.The controls were lame, the wrestlers seem to be punching rather then wrestling. During a match After about the 4th or 5th bunch they bleed already. The wrestler seem small compared to SmackDown.Look I have been a wrestling fan for about 20 years now and This game really disappointed me.
Summary: I have but one question. How can you have a wrestling game entitled "Legends of Wrestling" without the single biggest name in the history of the business? I mean don't get me wrong, Sting is awesome, as well as Andre The Giant, Jake Roberts,and Jerry Lawler among others but there's no Ric Flair? I haven't played this newest version of this game but I did play Legends Of Wrestling 1 & 2 and they were both horrible in terms of gameplay.
Summary: First let me say that I only play sports games. Those games include football, basketball, soccer (sometimes), and wrestling. I've been playing these games since the beginning of time. Does that make me an expert? Maybe. Now lets get to this lousy game. "Lousy?" Of course. What else would you expect from Acclaim Sports? This Showdown: Legends of Wrestling game only offers one thing and that one thing is Legends.
Summary: the idea of having all these legends is great..but acclaim really did a bad job..first game play is very slow..theres alot of gilnches..its not good..dont expect wwe smackdwon quality or gameplay...maybe THQ should make a game like this...rent this game but dont buy it...LOW and LOW2 were also bad games and i thought they wouldve improved this one but they didnt.
Filled with bugs and glitches that spoil the game.

Summary: While the game boasts one of the greatest rosters ever put in a wrestling game, the bugs and glitches ruin this game. While Acclaim's idea was a good one, they deliver a game that feels more like an unfinished demo.
Summary: Legends of Wrestling is not worth it at all. The game is very slow, the graphics are sub par but considering that this game is on the PS2 and XBOX, the graphics are mediocre at best. Also the gaemplay and control is awful. With fighting games like Tekken 4, MK Deadly Alliance and wrestling games like Smackdown SYM, this series really doesn't stand a chance because these games are faster, have better controls and the gameplay and replay value is great.
Summary: I find these reviews hard to believe because when I played Legends of Wrestling, I wish I could have gone and gotten my rental fee back. This has horrible game play. Though it might be cool to be the great characters in the game, it was so boring as the set moves were weak. I advise people not to waste your time or money on this game.
