fun, old-school wrestling! (...admittedly with some flaws)
29 October 2011
Summary: [Note: This review has been edited since it was first posted.] I've noticed that this game has received a lot of negative reviews. No, this game may not be perfect. But I still find it to be very fun.
Summary: Having been recently disappointed by Smackdown: Just Bring It, I went out and picked up Legends of Wrestling. After playing it all weekend, I came to the conclusion that taking certain aspects of both and combining them into one game would create the ultimate wrestling game..
Not Bad...Acclaim shows sign for great improvement

Summary: To put it simply, the game is a bit difficult to learn at first, but after you play it for a few minutes, you get the hang of it. The game can be frustrating at times though. To be honest, I got (mad) the first time I tried to play but it gets easier.
Summary: This game is the sleeper hit of the PS2. To people like me who were dissappointed from the unfulfillment of of Smack Down Just Bring it, I submit to you this game. First of all, the most important aspect of the game is the career mode.
Summary: Legends of Wrestling is a pretty good game since the roster has some superstars that you will know (Hulk, RVD, Bret Hart, and a few others). The gameplay is pretty slow because the controls are not like WWF SmackDown!. It is hard to reverse moves done by other wrestlers.
Summary: The big complaint seems to be who made it in and who didn't. Doesn't matter. The game is actually pretty good, once you get past the move learning curve. It gave a very nice impression of working in the regional promotions, back in the day.
Summary: Several years ago I picked up a used copy of this at videogame store, and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. To tell the truth, I'd never even seen most of the wrestlers on the game, but I still thought it was very cool.
Summary: I personally love the game. I grew up watching wrestling and while I dont watch it much anymore, it is fun to play with all the guys I grew up watching. The graphics are great, and while there are some minor glitches, it is a fun game to watch. I like the controls and the music is cool.
Summary: When I first played Showdown, I couldn't stand it, but it grew on me. Now, I really enjoy playing it. You can't play it while constantly comparing it to Smackdown HCTP because you will be frustrated. If you play it, though, for what it is, you'll enjoy it. A lot will be said about the gameplay.
