Excerpt: The anticipated Tournament of Legends has arrived on the Nintendo Wii that offers owners of this console, a not so standard fighter... more specifically a weapon's figher. As opposed to the Street Fighter, Tournament of Legends takes a different tact with the story and takes the player back to antiquity where 10 mythological legends have been summoned by the gods to fight. But if you're looking for Street Fighter... look elsewhere!
Conclusion: Si les modes de jeu n'ont pas encore été évoqués, c'est parce qu'ils se résument à : Histoire - VS - S'entraîner - Options. Soit du conventionnel puissance mille. Le Versus est d'ailleurs praticable en écran splitté, je vous laisse imaginer le calvaire à endurer dans ces conditions. Petite précision, les sous-titres ne sont pas activés par défaut alors que les voix sont en anglais, pensez par conséquent à passer dans le menu de configuration sonore pour corriger cela, ne...
Pros: Pas si moche que ça, Des affrontements qui essaient d'être originaux
Cons: Des combattants insipides, Lent à manier, Très peu de contenu
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. It might seem like a shameless plug, but I reference it to illustrate an important point.
Summary: You remember back in the nineties when we had the fighting game boom? Dozens of "me too" titles with increasingly silly premises, all vying for a piece of the one-on-one fighter pie. Rise of the Robots , Primal Rage , Eternal Champions , they all came out of the woodwork with their own absurd concepts and varying degrees of quality. Tournament of Legends reminds me of those days. Strangely, I don't mean that as a bad thing in the least.
Excerpt: A bloodthirsty gladiator enters the ring. With eyes narrowed in steely concentration, he eagerly awaits his chance to use his serpentine sword for the purpose for which it was created. Across from him stands a towering monument to death. The stone golem has no soul within him; no human emotions to hold him back from doing the one thing he knows how to do: kill. They slowly walk toward each other.
Pros: Good variety of special attacks, Unique environmental dangers in every arena, The minotaur's name is BraveHoof
Cons: Clunky controls hinder both offense and defense, Quick-time events distract from the action, Two-player is offline only
Frantic mythological fighting game with moderate violence.

Summary: Parents need to know that despite the inclusion of various world mythological figures, Tournament of Legends is a modern-style fighting game in which those classical characters use contemporary speech. It is violent, though not excessively bloody. It features scantily clad women warriors. And it sometimes has a juvenile sense of humor.
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. But even though I don't typically invest my time in these games, I still know a good fighter from a bad one. When it comes to standing up against other fighting games, Tournament of Legends gets knocked out pretty quickly.
