Excerpt: Deadliest Warrior has caused quite a stir in the office this past week. Perhaps you read our review of it, or maybe you watched two of the VideoGamer.com team bashing each other's brains to pieces in our Extended Play feature.
Excerpt: I’ll be the first to admit that fighting games aren’t my usual cup of tea. I’m generally not gifted when it comes to the twitch reflexes and intricate input commands that are so crucial in the one-on-one fighting genre.
Summary: Wii doesn’t have many fighters, and while you may enjoy the few there are, such as Super Smash Bros. Brawl , Mortal Kombat or Tatsunoko Vs Capcom , some may feel an empty space for another kind of fighter. High Voltage have tried to fill the gap with their brawler, Tournament of Legends .
Conclusion: Tournament of Legends does have a lot of potential to it. Having mythological creatures from different cultures fighting against each other sounds really cool, but a poor storyline, terrible and overly sensitive motion controls, the lack of Wii-Motion Plus and online multiplayer bring down another...
Summary: The Wii is well known for a few of its high-profile fighting games, but otherwise the console isn’t exactly a haven for the genre. Everybody knows about Smash Bros, which is an unorthodox fighting game at best, and just this year we got the fantastic Tatsunoko vs.
Excerpt: I’ve always been a sucker for over the top fighting games. Heck, half of my childhood memories revolve around pulling off fatalities and throwing off Hadoukens against my friends at the local arcade.
Summary: Weird or not, Tournament of Legends simply doesn’t have what it takes to warrant your time or money. It isn’t that the production values or low or the setup a little too similar to the lowbrow War Gods , it’s that the game often just doesn’t work as it should.
Summary: Tournament of Legends is a weapon- and magic-based 3D-fight game featuring some of the biggest playable characters on Wii. Each fighter is based on a legend from world mythology: the Minotaur, a powerful Gladiator, Gorgon, Stone Golem, Valkyrie and other well-known and powerful characters.
Summary: Tournament of Legends is not a horrible game by any stretch of the imagination, it’s just that it doesn’t live up to any of its potential. This is one that will probably be enjoyed most by young children or those with completely no experience in the fighting genre.
